Als Ethnologe in Marokko
25,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Michel Leiris und Claude Lévi-Strauss haben mit Phantom Afrika (orig. 1934) und Traurige Tropen (orig. 1955) als Erste die Herausforderungen an Ethnologen und Reisende thematisiert, die sich für längere Zeit bei einem ihnen fremden Volk aufhalten: Menschen aufsuchen, ihre Sprache und Gewohnheiten, ihr Denken, ihre Gesellschaft und Glaubenssysteme studieren, ohne dazu eingeladen worden zu sein. Was ist das Fremde? Wie geht man als Forscher damit um? Wer ist man, wenn man dem fremden Stoff - als Ethnologe im Feld meist auf sich allein gestellt - begegnet?Der US-amerikanische Anthropologe Paul Rabinow, geboren 1944, setzt diese illustre Denk- und Forschertradition auf Augenhöhe fort. Er ist im deutschen Raum bislang nur mit anspruchsvollen Arbeiten zu Fragen von Identität, Rationalität, Aufklärung, Moderne, Fremde und Vernunft bekannt. Doch seine Erstlingsarbeit ist ein frischer, hoch anregender und sehr plastisch geschriebener Bericht über seine ethnologische Feldforschung als junger Mann im Marokko der späten 1960er Jahre. Sie blieb bisher unübersetzt, obwohl sie sich würdig neben die oben genannten Arbeiten stellt. Rabinows Essay verbindet enorme Klugheit der Reflexion mit einfacher, schöner Sprache. Höchste Ansprüche an Wahrhaftigkeit in der Beurteilung des eigenen Tuns gehen einher mit einer Transparenz der Darstellung, die - wie bei Leiris und Lévi-Strauss - auch ihre unbeabsichtigten poetischen Momente kennt."Dieser studentische Ennui und mein Hang zu Intellektualität hatten mich zur Anthropologie geführt. Sie schien die einzige akademische Disziplin zu sein, in der man per definitionem eines Tages die akademischen Elfenbeintürme und Bibliotheken verlassen, sich von den Mit-Akademikern verabschieden musste. Ihr Forschungsbereich war vermessen riesig, von Lemurenfüßen bis Schattenspiele schloss er alles ein. Ein Professor sagte, Anthropologie sei die perfekte 'Disziplin des Dilettanten'."Paul Rabinow"Wie ethnografisch! Da war ich erst ein paar Tage in Marokko, hatte mich in einem Hotel eingerichtet, einem Relikt aus Kolonialzeiten, trank im Garten Kaffee und hatte nichts anderes zu tun, als mit 'meiner' Feldforschung zu beginnen. Mir war nicht ganz klar, was das eigentlich hieß, außer dass ich annahm, ich würde ein wenig in Sefrou herumschlendern. Schließlich war ja alles Feldstudium, nun, da ich draußen im Feld war."Paul Rabinow

The Change Monster
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

“Since any change effort--from merger to corporate reorganization--inevitably involves people, it’s hard to believe that no book has ever addressed this issue head-on. The Change Monster is all about the ‘hard part’ of strategy--getting the organization to internalize, commit to, and follow through with change. As Jeanie Duck well knows, even organizations that know they need to change often can’t get up the head of steam needed. The Change Monster not only talks intelligently about the social dynamics and emotions of people, it does so with wisdom, insight, and practicality. With Jeanie Duck’s book, managers now have a creative, powerful tool for understanding and dealing with this crucial subject.” -- Daniel Leemon, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, The Charles Schwab Corporation “Where else can you explore companies like Sisyphus Systems and FastMovingGoods or learn why Ennui International is mired in the past and Worldwide Frenzy is going nowhere fast? With scores of such tales from the consultant's trenches, Jeanie Duck offers a practitioner’s primer on revitalization. She puts you in the shoes of some who have failed and others who have succeeded, and in doing so graphically delivers her main message to management: Learn to master the emotions and obsessions of those who stand in the way of change, including your own, and once you do, you have your hands on a miraculous engine for change.” -- Michael Useem, professor of management and director of the Center for Leadership and Change at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and author of The Leadership Moment

'If you have any interest in the wild array of people who defined the West Coast beat/bohemian world, and the various ways it overlapped other worlds, including Hollywood and rock ‘n’ roll, then you must read TOSH: Growing Up in Wallace Berman’s World by Tosh Berman--John Yau, Hyperallergic 'It's about what it's like to grow up in the L.A. art community between the Beat years and the Counterculture years. Of all the books I've read about L.A. since I've gotten here, this was the most informative about the L.A. I would have wanted to know.'--Michael Silverblatt, Host of KCRW's 'Bookworm' 'Tosh's book is fascinating, fleshing out details on how Wallace morphed from West Coast Beat generation raja into hippie headmaster of LA, centered in the Beverly Glen and Topanga Canyon areas, and, for a time, of San Francisco. . . . His book is filled with wild, with-it insights, buttressed by bounteous black and white photos, yet it is based in a rather ordinary, mid-20th century American upbringing, with extraordinary moments.'—Joseph Nechvatal, Hyperallergic 'This book is perfection. I wish it went on forever. Maybe, somehow, it does.TOSH is almost like a giant map of small city . . . Each sentence is a street. Each chapter is an era. Each memory revealing a secret passage from one place to the next . . . TO READ IT is to WALK IT with Tosh Berman.' —Jason Schwartzman, actor 'This double narrative of Tosh Berman and his father, Wallace, will tell you more about the creative process than a hundred how-to books purporting to do the same.'—Jim Krusoe, author of The Sleep Garden 'Reading TOSH is like meeting your idols, one at a time, for a quiet chat. Everyone is disarmed, and it feels like you've been in the same room with them for about ten hours, or so. Dennis Hopper is unconstrained and friendly, Toni Basil is bubbly, and Brian Jones has just stopped by to say hello. Topanga, as a place is remote--filled with pockets of escapism, winding landscapes of tumult and ennui. Tosh's world is both expansive and crystalline, he traces the edges of his world, and Wallace's world. We get to come and go with Tosh as he navigates his place in and around the tangle of the time.'—Soo Kim, artist, Professor at Otis College of Art and Design 'This book is sublime: vertiginous, melancholy, highly amusing!'—Johan Kugelberg, Boo-Hooray 'Through the prism of Tosh Berman, only child, born 1954 to Wallace and Shirley, who personified the wild heart of 20th century West Coast art, we are offered a truly intimate invitation into a magic world of outliers, visionaries and shooting stars. TOSH recounts a life 'lived like a good book on a bookshelf,' a memoir resonant with discovery, passion, music, art, sex, celebrity, ego, desire, and dignity. All told with a son's love for his father, a continuing light into the creative life.'--Thurston Moore, musician & writer 'Tosh Berman is one of the most valuable writers, much less people, the earth has upon it. This book is exquisite. I can't think of another word. What it says, how it says it, what it is.'--Dennis Cooper, author of The Marbled Swarm 'Reading TOSH, I felt like I was lying on a couch, completely relaxed and engrossed, while Tosh Berman sat in a chair beside me and told me his amazing life story. And at the end, I was very moved and wanted to cry. The affect that TOSH--the book and the man--had on me was that feeling I get when exposed to great art: a mix of sadness and wonder, which seem to be the two faces of the human heart. Wonderment at the beauty around us--the world, its people--and the sadness that nothing lasts, that all must perish. But this is our journey on planet earth: to be brave and feel both things at once, and it's great art, like this book, that reminds us to do so.'--Jonathan Ames, author of You Were Never Really Here'It's about what it's like to grow up in the L.A. art community between the Beat years and the Counterculture years.

The New Martians

The year is 2035, and the crew from the first expedition to Mars is returning to Earth. The crewmembers are anxious to get home, and ennui pervades the ship. The mood is broken by a series of mysterious events that jeopardize their safety. Someone or something is threatening the crew. Is it an alien being? A psychotic crewmember? A malfunctioning computer? The truth raises questions about the crewmembers' fate and that of the human race.In this novel, the intent is to show real psychological issues that could affect a crew returning from a long-duration mission to Mars. The storyline presents a mystery that keeps the reader guessing, yet the issues at stake are based on the findings from the author's research and other space-related work over the past 40+ years. The novel touches on actual plans being discussed for such an expedition as well as notions involving the search for Martian life and panspermia.The underlying science, in particular the psychological, psychiatric, and interpersonal elements, are introduced and discussed by the author in an extensive appendix.Nick Kanas is an Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, where he directed the group therapy training program. For over 20 years he conducted research on group therapy, and for nearly 20 years after that he was the Principal Investigator of NASA-funded research on astronauts and cosmonauts. He is the co-author of Space Psychology and Psychiatry, which won the 2004 International Academy of Astronautics Life Science Book Award, and the author of Humans in Space: The Psychological Hurdles, which won the 2016 International Academy of Astronautics Life Science Book Award. Dr. Kanas has presented talks on space psychology and on celestial mapping at several regional and Worldcon science fiction conventions. A Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society (London), he has been an amateur astronomer for over 50 years and is an avid reader of science fiction.

Uncle Vanya is a play by the Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. It was first published in 1897 and received its Moscow première in 1899 in a production by the Moscow Art Theatre, under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavski. The play portrays the visit of an elderly professor and his glamorous, much younger second wife, Yelena, to the rural estate that supports their urban lifestyle. Two friends-Vanya, brother of the professor's late first wife, who has long managed the estate, and Astrov, the local doctor-both fall under Yelena's spell, while bemoaning the ennui of their provincial existence. Sonya, the professor's daughter by his first wife, who has worked with Vanya to keep the estate going, suffers from her unrequited feelings for Dr. Astrov. Matters are brought to a crisis when the professor announces his intention to sell the estate, Vanya and Sonya's home, with a view to investing the proceeds to achieve a higher income for himself and his wife.

Life and Times of Professor Ennui Pidawee
16,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

A short memoir in three parts. HISTORY is about the author and some characters he has known (a transvestite, an entrepreneur, a rocket scientist, a beatnik, a martial artist, a movie star, and a fool, to name a few). These stories, taking place from 1945 to 1961, are generally true. PRE-HISTORY is about the author's parents and grandparents. Occurring before 1945, these stories are generally not true, or are at least imagined. It is through these tales that the author tries to figure out what made his folks the way they were (and explain how he got to be such a pidawee). DEATH is about the passing of the author's mother in 1955 in Shelby, North Carolina (at the Center of the Known Universe - where all explanations come together). Although not explicitly about the South, it is a Southern Book. It's got crazy white people, Magical Negroes, muscadine grapes, livermush, dynamite, undertones of violence, and guns - lots of guns.
