P jaro Verde Y Otros Cuentos
The Green Bird and Other Tales / El pajaro verde y otros cuentos brings together, in English translation and in the original castellano, nine works that identify Juan Valera as an authentic fairy-tale/fantasy writer, a fictional chronicler of two legendary Spanish historical personages, and a tongue-in-cheek humorist. Well before the critical and popular success of his Pepita Jimenez in 1874, Valera was drawn to the oral tradition of Andalusia, his native patria chica, where he found "The Green Bird" being passed orally from generation to generation. Citing Spain's lack of collections-in his time [siglo]-like those of the brothers Grimm, Andersen, and Perrault, he writes in his Cuentos y chascarrillos andaluces that his aim is to add to the "written treasure of tales popularly told [tesoro escrito de los cuentos que el vulgo refiere]." And they range, in this Juan de la Cuesta collection, from the lyrical and poetic to the comical and earthy. The historical pieces center on Bernardo del Carpio, of whom don Quijote was so fond, and Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba, the Great Captain, who fought so long and so valiantly in the service of the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel of Castile and Fernando of Aragon. Here Valera again shines, weaving fictional accounts in fluid prose, and with a thorough command of Spanish history, as he brings to life two figures of legend and lore. Together the nine tales demonstrate that Juan Valera excels in short, as well as long, prose fiction.
The Tides of Mind Uncovering the Spectrum of Consciousness
A “rock star” (New York Times) of the computing world provides a radical new work on the meaning of human consciousness. The holy grail of psychologists and scientists for nearly a century has been to understand and replicate both human thought and the human mind. In fact, it's what attracted the now-legendary computer scientist and AI authority David Gelernter to the discipline in the first place. As a student and young researcher in the 1980s, Gelernter hoped to build a program with a dial marked "focus." At maximum "focus," the program would "think" rationally, formally, reasonably. As the dial was turned down and "focus" diminished, its "mind" would start to wander, and as you dialed even lower, this artificial mind would start to free-associate, eventually ignoring the user completely as it cruised off into the mental adventures we know as sleep. While the program was a only a partial success, it laid the foundation for The Tides of Mind, a groundbreaking new exploration of the human psyche that shows us how the very purpose of the mind changes throughout the day. Indeed, as Gelernter explains, when we are at our most alert, when reasoning and creating new memories is our main mental business, the mind is a computer-like machine that keeps emotion on a short leash and attention on our surroundings. As we gradually tire, however, and descend the "mental spectrum," reasoning comes unglued. Memory ranges more freely, the mind wanders, and daydreams grow more insistent. Self-awareness fades, reflection blinks out, and at last we are completely immersed in our own minds. With far-reaching implications, Gelernter’s landmark "Spectrum of Consciousness" finally helps decode some of the most mysterious wonders of the human mind, such as the numinous light of early childhood, why dreams are so often predictive, and why sadism and masochism underpin some of our greatest artistic achievements. It’s a theory that also challenges the very notion of the mind as a machine—and not through empirical studies or "hard science" but by listening to our great poets and novelists, who have proven themselves as humanity's most trusted guides to the subjective mind and inner self. In the great introspective tradition of Wilhelm Wundt and René Descartes, David Gelernter promises to not only revolutionize our understanding of what it means to be human but also to help answer many of our most fundamental questions about the origins of creativity, thought, and consciousness.
This cookbook will celebrate the vibrant food of six very different countries. Each chapter will focus on a different city or region: Marrakech, Athens, Venice, Andalucia, Stockholm and the Ardeche region of France. The food in each chapter will be a mixture of classic dishes and new recipes inspired by the things Jamie learns on his travels. Beautiful reportage photography of the faces, places and ingredients will accompany each chapter. Jamie says: 'The food I've embraced on each trip is a mixture of what you could call the clichéd star dishes - the tagines of Morocco, the flamboyant paella of Spain and the zingy fresh flavours of a classic Greek salad - and the recipes that I've been inspired to make after walking through the markets and soaking up the vibes of each place. What you'll find in this book is fun, optimistic, escapist food you can actually cook and enjoy in your own home.'
