This is the anatomy of our being. This is our flesh, our muscles, our sinews and our limbs all tangled up beside each other. And this, is what they found when we left it all behind.

Hoffnung, die wirkt

Wie sich Menschen angesichts schwerer Krankheit behaupten

Hoffnung kann ein entscheidendes Moment der Heilung sein. Jerome Groopman, der als Therapeut jahrzehntelang mit schwer kranken Menschen zu tun hatte, entwickelte ein Konzept, in dem die Fähigkeit, zu hoffen im Kampf mit der Krankheit konsequent genutzt werden kann. Erinnerungen, soziale Bindungen, der Glaube – all dies sind Einflussfaktoren, die die Immunantwort des Menschen entscheidend beeinflussen. Diese Erkenntnis bedeutet mehr Verantwortung als den meisten Behandlern bewusst ist; denn es hängt entscheidend von ihren Äußerungen und Botschaften ab, ob der Patient genügend Hoffnung aufbringen kann, um sich der Krankheit zu stellen. Groopman zeigt dabei, dass medizinische Wahrheiten nicht übertüncht werden müssen, um durch das Prinzip Hoffnung die Körperabwehr zu mobilisieren.

Anatomie eines Augenblicks

Die Nacht, in der Spaniens Demokratie gerettet wurde

In ›Anatomie eines Augenblicks‹ schildert Javier Cercas den entscheidenden Augenblick am 23. Februar 1981, als das Schicksal der noch jungen Demokratie Spaniens auf der Kippe stand: Das Parlament war umstellt, die Putschisten in den Startlöchern, aber der damalige Präsident und der junge König blieben unerschütterlich. Wie in einem Thriller entfaltet Cercas diesen Moment und analysiert ihn. Mit dem Gespür für Spannung und dem Auge des Romanautors schuf Javier Cercas das bewegte Standbild einer dramatischen Episode, die Spaniens Geschichte hätte auf den Kopf stellen können. »Wir werden ... zu Zeugen einer grandiosen Tat des Widerstands gegen die sich ständig wiederholende Infamie der Geschichte«, schrieb Alberto Manguel. El País wählte es zu seinem Buch des Jahres, und ganz Spanien machte es zum Bestseller.

45 Gegenstände, 1 unvergessliche Geschichte Captain Tom Barnes leitet einen Einsatz der britischen Armee, als er auf eine Landmine tritt. Zwei einheimische Jungen werden in den Konflikt hineingezogen, kaum ahnend, was dort geschieht. Auf allen Seiten verändert Gewalt das Leben von Grund auf. In diesem ungewöhnlichen Roman erzählen die Gegenstände des Krieges: Turnschuhe, Soldatenstiefel, Helm, ein paar Dollar, eine Drohne, ein Fahrrad, ein militärischer Orden, ein Glas Bier, eine Schneeflocke, medizinisches Gerät und eine Landmine. Anatomie eines Soldaten ist bewegend, aufwühlend und visionär: über den Krieg, tiefe Wunden und das Überleben. „Eine Tour de Force. In seinem brillanten und verführerischen Roman entblößt Harry Parker die geheimen Kräfte des Krieges. Diese Seiten sind gefährlich, aber sie enthalten Mitgefühl und Trauer. Man kann sich nur wundern, dass Menschen sich das gegenseitig antun. Der Krieg wird hier durch die Lupe betrachtet, aber ist doch völlig real.“ Nadeem Aslam

Created by Joseph Pilates during the early 20th century, Pilates is used by millions today to improve their physical and mental well-being. Much of its appeal lies in its simple, low-impact approach, which is ideal for injury prevention, rehabilitation, and general physical health. Based on a series of precise movements and the employment of equipment such as rubber balls and exercise bands, Pilates emphasizes concentration, control, alignment, core stability, and proper breathing. The Anatomy of Pilates shows what actually happens to the body’s muscles and joints during Pilates exercises. Each two-page spread features detailed anatomical illustrations of an exercise (with muscle actions highlighted in red), a detailed description of the exercise and its objectives, the particular breathing pattern to be used, a list of the specific muscles being worked, visualization techniques, complementary exercises, and more. The Anatomy of Pilates is an accessible, authoritative guide for current and prospective teachers of Pilates, practitioners at all skill levels, physical therapists, and other health professionals.

The Anatomy of Knowledge

Papers Presented to the Study Group on Foundations of Cultural Unity, Bowdoin College, 1965 and 1966

Author: Marjorie Grene

ISBN: 1317440382

Originally published in 1969. Since the seventeenth century the kind of knowledge afforded by mathematical physics has come more and more to furnish mankind with an ideal for all knowledge. The ideal also carries with it a new conception of the nature of things: all things whatsoever are held to be intelligible ultimately in terms of the laws of inanimate nature. This reductionist formula can be overcome only by the fundamental rethinking of our philosophical premises. To contribute towards thsi rethinking was the aim of the Study Group at whose meetings this collection originated. The essayists come from a wide range of disciplines but all want to address the conflict in our culture. The first part consists of discussions of various fundamental problems in the sciences. There are essays on the inter-relation of physics and psychology, on the possible reduction of biology to physics and chemistry, on new approaches to experimental psychology, against the possibility of giving a purely ‘factual’ account of social and political life, and for a fundamental reform of our concept of responsibility. The second section of the book suggests lines of philosophical inquiry which might help to resolve the epistemological and ethical problems arising at the foundations of physics, biology, psychology and the social sciences.

The Anatomy of Thatcherism explains how, for the first time In British history, a prime minister's name has become an 'Ism'—a symbol of a profound social change. Letwln argues that Thatcherism promoted a moral agenda rather than an economic doctrine or a political theory in order to achieve a fundamental realignment in British politics. She introduces a new terms—"the vigorous virtues"—to describe what Thatcherites have aimed to cultivate in Individual Britons and In the country as a whole. Her definition of Thatcherism is supported by a detailed analysis of the principal Thatcherite policies and the grounds on which they were advocated and opposed, Inside and outside the Conservative Party. Without departing from a lucid and lively style or resorting to technical jargon. Dr. Letwln explains such innovations as schools opting out, budget holding by GPs, and the creation of the first ever competitive spot market in electricity. Just how did the Thatcherite administrations shape the reform of the unions? How is the Thatcherite attitude to the family connected with Thatcherite policies on schools? Why does mon­etarism appear—wrongly—to be at the heart of Thatcherism? The Anatomy of Thatcherism is a bold and searching book about how Britain changed between 1979 and 1992. It challenges many truisms about British politics, and Is indispensable reading both for those who believe in the future relevance of Thatcherism and for those who want to demolish it. And it will be of particular interest to those con­cerned with the history of British politics, as It shows how Thatcherism both arose out of, and confronted, trends that had per­meated Conservatism for the entire twentieth century.

A Menninger Foundation Report on Testing the Effects of Psychotherapy

The standard test battery developed by Rapaport, Gill, and Schafer at the Menninger Foundation constituted the most important research instrument (apart from clinical interviews) of the Foundation's psychotherapy research project. The battery's influence on clinical diagnosis and on research in personality assessment and change has been tremendous. In the hands of highly trained and skilled psychologists, the battery, constructed chiefly around projective tests, has been invaluable for diagnosing difficult cases. The complexity of interpreting it, however, and the many dimensions along which its findings can be organized, have made it frustratingly difficult to use in formal research. And its cost, because of the great time investment it requires, has made clinicians reticent about using it on a large scale. Dr. Appelbaum, an experienced psychotherapist and psycho analyst, was a distinguished member of the group of highly skilled psychologists who applied this test battery in the psychotherapy research reported here, although his role in this instance was re stricted to analyzing the findings of others who administered and interpreted the tests. In recent years, Dr. Appelbaum has been eval uating the mechanisms and effects of various psychotherapeutic approaches.

The consequences of narrow work specialization are critical not only for workers and employers but for civilization as a whole. In The Anatomy of Work, George Friedmann elucidates the large and small questions raised by this evolutionary moment in human labor and development. Donald C. King's introduction to this new edition discusses the impact of Friedmann's work on later researchers and assesses its relative strengths and weaknesses in forecasting future trends, particularly in regard to automation. This is pioneering study on how work is organic to human identity.

What is the purpose of the Church? Does it have a mission? If it does, how many honest, insightful Christians would agree that as a rule, that mission is being carried out? Without a doubt, the Church is the living body of our Lord and Saviour; however churchanity is a powerful satanic tool used to confuse Christians and inhibit the full use of God's gifts. This book will help you to distinguish between the two. It will direct you through the fundamentals of being in the true Church of God. The bible admonishes us to be diligent observers of the truth. How can we, who admittedly do not know as much as our teacher, gauge those whom we have assumed to be anointed? The answer is in the word, "agreement". "Can two walk together, except they be agreed? (Amos 3:3) For example, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt who Jesus is, but your teacher represents Him as someone else. Should you continue to sit under this teacher? When it is a foregone conclusion that essential bible doctrines are not embraced by your teacher, it's time to find another church.
