Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, Professor of English Literature, University of Sussex. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is one of the greatest tragic dramas the world has known. Macbeth himself, a brave warrior, is fatally impelled by supernatural forces, by his proud wife, and by his own burgeoning ambition. As he embarks on his murderous course to gain and retain the crown of Scotland, we see the appalling emotional and psychological effects on both Lady Macbeth and himself. The cruel ironies of their destiny are conveyed in poetry of unsurpassed power. In the theatre, this tragedy remains perennially engrossing.

Translated by Constance Garnett, with an Introduction and Notes by Agnes Cardinal, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Comparative Literature at the University of Kent. Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection and Dostoevsky's own views, afflictions and manners. His serene selflessness is contrasted with the worldly qualities of every other character in the novel. Dostoevsky supplies a harsh indictment of the Russian ruling class of his day who have created a world which cannot accomodate the goodness of this idiot.

Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft

Dieses Buch markiert eine wichtige Vertiefung im Denken und politischen Wirken von Erich Fromm: Der Charakter eines einzelnen, aber auch der vieler Menschen wird sich nur ändern, wenn sich die wirtschaftliche, kulturelle und gesellschaftliche Lebenspraxis ändert, die die Gesellschafts-Charakterorientierung hervorbringt. In einer krank machenden oder gar kranken Gesellschaft werden die individuellen Bemühungen um eine produktive Charakterorientierung kaum Aussicht auf Erfolg haben – geht man mit Fromm davon aus, dass der Mensch ein Bezogenheitswesen ist und dass sein Bezogensein auf eine soziale Gruppe von existenzieller Bedeutung für ihn ist. Die Frage, ob das gesellschaftliche Zusammenleben das psychische Gelingen des Menschen fördert, hemmt oder gar vereitelt, steht deshalb im Mittelpunkt von Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft. Fromm fragt deshalb in diesem Buch nach alternativen Gesellschaftsentwürfen zur vorherrschenden kapitalistischen Gesellschaft. Am Ende des Buches macht er konkrete Vorschläge, wie eine psychisch gesunde Gesellschaft gestaltet und organisiert sein müsste. Der Ausgangspunkt ist eine Konfrontation des kranken Menschen der Gegenwart mit seinen wahren Bedürfnissen. Die in Kapitel 3 ausgeführte Bedürfnislehre findet sich in dieser Ausführlichkeit nirgends mehr sonst in den Schriften Fromms. Die Tatsache spezifisch menschlicher Bedürfnisse und die Notwendigkeit ihrer Befriedigung ist die Basis eines normativen Humanismus, der den Versuch unternimmt, das zu formulieren, was seelische Gesundheit in der jeweiligen Gesellschaft heißt. In Kapitel 4 beleuchtet Fromm die gesamte Wertungsfrage „krank-gesund“ beim Einzelnen wie bei der Gesellschaft.

Blinde Eifersucht und zerstörerischer Zorn – doch die Zeit heilt alle Wunden Der Londoner Investmentbanker Leo verdächtigt seine schwangere Frau MiMi, ihn mit seinem Jugendfreund Xeno zu betrügen. In rasender Eifersucht und blind gegenüber allen gegenteiligen Beweisen verstößt er MiMi und seine neugeborene Tochter Perdita. Durch einen glücklichen Zufall findet der Barpianist Shep das Baby und nimmt es mit nach Hause. Jahre später verliebt sich das Mädchen in einen jungen Mann – Xenos einzigen Sohn. Zusammen machen sie sich auf, das Rätsel ihrer Herkunft zu lösen und alte Wunden zu heilen, damit der Bann der Vergangenheit endlich gebrochen wird. Jeanette Winterson spielt souverän mit Figuren und Handlung aus Shakespeares "Das Wintermärchen" und erzählt eine verblüffend moderne Geschichte über rasende Eifersucht, blinden Selbsthass und die tiefe Sehnsucht in uns, die Fehler der Vergangenheit wieder gut zu machen.

This is not just another happiness book. In Happiness by Design, happiness and behavior expert Paul Dolan combines the latest insights from economics and psychology to illustrate that in order to be happy we must behave happy Our happiness is experiences of both pleasure and purpose over time and it depends on what we actually pay attention to. Using what Dolan calls deciding, designing, and doing, we can overcome the biases that make us miserable and redesign our environments to make it easier to experience happiness, fulfilment, and even health. With uncanny wit and keen perception, Dolan reveals what we can do to find our unique optimal balance of pleasure and purpose, offering practical advice on how to organize our lives in happiness-promoting ways and fresh insights into how we feel, including why: • Having kids reduces pleasure but gives us a massive dose of purpose • Gaining weight won’t necessarily make us unhappier, but being too ambitious might • A quiet neighborhood is more important than a big house Vividly rendering intriguing research and lively anecdotal evidence, Happiness by Design offers an absorbing, thought-provoking, new paradigm for readers of Stumbling on Happiness and The How of Happiness.
