The View from Nowhere

Human beings have the unique ability to view the world in a detached way: We can think about the world in terms that transcend our own experience or interest, and consider the world from a vantage point that is, in Nagel´s words, ´´nowhere in particular.´´ At the same time, each of us is a particular person in a particular place, each with his own ´´personal´´ view of the world, a view that we can recognize as just one aspect of the whole. How do we reconcile these two standpoints--intellectually, morally, and practically? To what extent are they irreconcilable and to what extent can they be integrated? Thomas Nagel´s ambitious and lively book tackles this fundamental issue, arguing that our divided nature is the root of a whole range of philosophical problems, touching, as it does, every aspect of human life. He deals with its manifestations in such fields of philosophy as: the mind-body problem, personal identity, knowledge and skepticism, thought and reality, free will, ethics, the relation between moral and other values, the meaning of life, and death. Excessive objectification has been a malady of recent analytic philosophy, claims Nagel, it has led to implausible forms of reductionism in the philosophy of mind and elsewhere. The solution is not to inhibit the objectifying impulse, but to insist that it learn to live alongside the internal perspectives that cannot be either discarded or objectified. Reconciliation between the two standpoints, in the end, is not always possible.

The Penguin English Library Edition of A Room with a View by E. M. Forster ´´´But you do,´´ he went on, not waiting for contradiction. ´´You love the boy body and soul, plainly, directly, as he loves you, and no other word expresses it ...´´ Lucy has her rigid, middle-class life mapped out for her until she visits Florence with her uptight cousin Charlotte, and finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Her eyes are opened by the unconventional characters she meets at the Pension Bertolini: flamboyant romantic novelist Eleanor Lavish, the Cockney Signora, curious Mr Emerson and, most of all, his passionate son George. Lucy finds herself torn between the intensity of life in Italy and the repressed morals of Edwardian England, personified in her terminally dull fiancé Cecil Vyse. Will she ever learn to follow her own heart? The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

A View from the Bridge
€ 8.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arthur Miller´s play A View from the Bridge is a tragic masterpiece of the inexorable unravelling of a man, set in a close-knit Italian-American community in 1950s New York. Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man, with a strong sense of decency and of honour. For Eddie, it´s a privilege to take in his wife´s cousins, Marco and Rodolpho, straight off the boat from Italy. But, as his niece Catherine begins to fall for one of them, it´s clear that it´s not just, as Eddie claims, that he´s too strange, too sissy, too careless for her, but that something bigger, deeper is wrong - and wrong inside Eddie, in a way he can´t face. Something which threatens the happiness of their whole family. This Penguin Classics edition includes an introduction by the author and a new foreword by actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In ´´A View from the Bridge´´, 1955 uraufgeführt (seine endgültige Fassung fand das Drama ein Jahr später in einer Inszenierung von Peter Brook), dramatisiert Arthur Miller eine Geschichte, die er einem New Yorker Hafenarbeiter verdankt und in der es um den Verrat eines italienischen Einwanderers an zwei illegal eingewanderten Verwandten geht. An dieser Geschichte faszinierte Miller besonders das, wie er es nannte, mythische Element. Die ´´Brücke´´ des Titels ist die Brooklyn Bridge, die den auf Long Island gelegenen Stadtteil Brooklyn mit der Südspitze Manhattans verbindet. Das Stück war Vorlage für Filme von Luchino Visconti (´´Rocco und seine Brüder´´) und Sidney Lumet; Dustin Hoffman spielte in einer New Yorker Inszenierung 1965 mit, Scarlett Johannson 2009. Ungekürzte und unbearbeitete Textausgabe in der Originalsprache, mit Übersetzungen schwieriger Wörter am Fuß jeder Seite, Nachwort und Literaturhinweisen.

A Room with a View

Visiting Italy with her prim and proper cousin Charlotte as a chaperone, Lucy Honeychurch meets the unconventional lower-class Mr. Emerson and his son, George. Upon her return to England she becomes engaged to the supercilious Cecil Vyse, but finds herself increasingly torn between the expectations of the world in which she moves and the passionate yearnings of her heart. As Forster writes, ´´You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you.´´ More than a love story, A Room With a View is a perceptive examination of class structure and a penetrating social comedy.

Die junge Engländerin Lucy Honeychurch begegnet in Italien dem jungen George Emerson, der ihre Gefühlswelt gefährlich ins Wanken bringt. Doch der Kontakt zu ihm verstößt gegen alle gesellschaftlichen Regeln. Forster kontrastiert die starren Konventionen des bürgerlichen Englands Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts mit einer freizügigen Lebenshaltung, die er selbst in Südeuropa kennengelernt hatte. Die Verfilmung des Romans unter der Regie von James Yvory gewann drei Oscars. Die Hörbuchreihe ORIGINAL + UNGEKÜRZT präsentiert Klassiker und Meisterwerke der Weltliteratur, und zwar in der englischen Originalfassung, an die selbst gute Übersetzungen nicht heranreichen können. Hervorragende, teils mehrfach ausgezeichnete Sprecher lassen Stil und Atmosphäre der Originale lebendig werden. Ausnahmslos werden die Werke in voller Länge gelesen: Es gibt keine Kürzungen und Verfälschungen, wie man sie gerade bei Klassikern häufig findet. Wo möglich, folgen die Lesungen dem Text wissenschaftlicher Editionen. Dank des mp3-Formats passen die bis zu 15-stündigen Lesungen auf nur eine CD. Die Einteilung der Lesung in kurze Tracks von 5 Minuten erlaubt schnelles Navigieren.
