Now or Never. . . It's the last chance for Cynthia Brightly, the ton's most bewitching belle. Driven out of London by a secret scandal, she must find a grand husband at the Redmonds' house party before word of her downfall spreads all over England. Unfortunately, someone at Pennyroyal Green is already privy to the whispers of broken engagements and dueling lovers: Miles Redmond, renowned explorer and—thanks to his brother's disappearance—heir to the family's enormous fortune. Miles set his sights on Cynthia once, at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son. But now he's heir apparent, relishing his control. He strikes a bargain with her: he'll keep Cynthia's steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests—in exchange for a single kiss. What could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it's enough to unleash fierce passion—and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the world.

The Meaning of the Body

Aesthetics of Human Understanding

"In The Meaning of the Body, Mark Johnson examines the nature of human meaning - where it comes from and how it is made. He goes beyond his earlier pioneering work, begun in Metaphors We Live By and The Body in the Mind, to explore the deepest sources of human understanding, which lie in feelings, emotions, qualities, and patterns of bodily perception and motion. Philosophers have traditionally ignored these aspects of embodied meaning, focusing instead on more superficial conceptual and propositional structures. Johnson argues that overlooking these profound dimensions of meaning has left much contemporary philosophy of language and mind out of touch with new research - in cognitive science, psychology, and art - that shows how meaning is possible for embodied human minds."--BOOK JACKET.

Through the Eyes of a Black Man’s Pen is a book of poetry about the ups and downs, U-turns, and turnarounds of life, the difficulties in love and relationships, the consequences of the bad choices we make, and finding the spirit of God that gets us through it all. There are three things in life – that if they are less than 100 percent – don’t exist. Namely trust, love, and truth. Remember that 99.99 percent of the truth is still a lie, because the truth only exists if it’s 100 percent true. The easiest part of living is to die in the grace of God, and as long as you have Him, being alone is impossible.

While it may be considered taboo, any woman married, single, or otherwise should feel good about her decision to take a lover. How To Pick a Lover is a groundbreaking book written to help women have meaningful and rewarding love affairs. How do you choose a lover? There are no time-honored rules, Greek chorus, or yenta to tell you what qualities to look for or how to avoid potential minefields. Literature is ripe with cautionary tales about bad things that happen to good women who stoop to the "folly" of taking a lover. And traditionally, a womans sexuality has been secondary to that of a mans. How To Pick a Lover takes you on a journey of self-discovery, exploring your right to emotional and sexual fulfillment including the option of having a lover. Many of your attitudes and beliefs about courting and being courted will be challenged throughout the pages of this book. In return, you will gain insights into the attributes and behaviors of men positive and negative that you must pay attention to if you are to pick a lover that is right for you.

Musical Forces

Motion, Metaphor, and Meaning in Music
Author: Steve Larson
Publisher: Indiana University Press
ISBN: 0253005493
Category: Music
Page: 390
View: 1559
Steve Larson drew on his 20 years of research in music theory, cognitive linguistics, experimental psychology, and artificial intelligence—as well as his skill as a jazz pianist—to show how the experience of physical motion can shape one’s musical experience. Clarifying the roles of analogy, metaphor, grouping, pattern, hierarchy, and emergence in the explanation of musical meaning, Larson explained how listeners hear tonal music through the analogues of physical gravity, magnetism, and inertia. His theory of melodic expectation goes beyond prior theories in predicting complete melodic patterns. Larson elegantly demonstrated how rhythm and meter arise from, and are given meaning by, these same musical forces.


(All You Need is Love-- ) : on Mating Strategies & a Fragment of a Freud Biography

Whom do we choose when we fall in love? How do we make the love-object into what we want? These are questions which only became important at the end of the nineteenth century, as Freud began to formulate a new discipline which would be called psycholanalysis. Freud argues Klaus Theweleit, was the first theoretician of the new situation: boy versus girl in the world series of love. Theweleit looks at a number of relationships: Alfred Hitchcock and Alma Reville; the triangle of Hannah Arendt, Martin Heidegger and Elfriede Heidegger; Jung and Sabina Spierlrein. But the key figure is Freud himself. Who would, who could Freud choose? As it happened, Freud proposed to Martha Bernays. The 1,500 letters of Freud's courtship became something like the first psychoanalysis; without knowing it, Martha Bernays became an analytic-instance. But Object-Choice is not only a study of the founder of psychoanalysis, it is also an illuminating lexicon of love in the twentieth century. Freud is accompanied here by Jimi Hendrix, the Kinks and the Velvet Underground. Like Theweleits's Male Fantasies, this is a collage book, mixing auto-biography, theory and pop culture, and always haunted by history, above all the history of Nazism. As an epilogue, Theweleit brings Freud back to the scene of his courtship, and the Beatles back to Hamburg, in an exploration of that city's Wandsbek district, once home to an important Jewish community. His comments on the transformations and destruction that Wandsbek has endured form an elegiac tribute to German Jewry, and a powerful conclusion to this remarkable book.
