Category: Literary Criticism
Da Capo is a collection of stories, plays, poems and journals in which Tom Bissinger takes on his world, whether reading Shakespeare to a blind bag lady, observing three playwrights comically vying to destroy each others career amidst the bustle of a Korean deli, or meditating on his father in a Sao Paulo swimming pool. Part autobiography, part story telling, part poetic explorations of dream world, and part social satire, Bissinger conveys the theatricality of so called ordinary existence by pulling his life towards him, hungering for the nuggets of mirth and meaning, ultimately owning it in original, daring prose. He takes on the challenge of staying awake in a troubled, violent world, while addressing his yearning for reverie and revelation.

An Investigation of Conscious Living and Conscious Dying
Author: Stephen Levine,Ondrea Levine
Who Dies? is the first book to show the reader how to open to the immensity of living with death, to participate fully in life as the perfect preparation for whatever may come next. The Levines provide calm compassion rather than the frightening melodrama of death.
Wege durch den Tod
Author: Stephen Levine
Publisher: J. Kamphausen Verlag
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
Levine ermutigt uns im ersten Teil des Buches, unsere eigenen Gedanken, Ängste, Sorgen und unser Verlangen - ohne zu bewerten - zu erforschen und unser Herz für uns selbst zu öffnen. So erkennen wir, wie wir durch unseren eigenen Widerstand gegen das, was ist, uns unsere eigene Hölle schaffen. Im zweiten Teil des Buches erfahren wir hilfreiche Unterstützung für unsere Arbeit mit leidenden Menschen: Bei der Begleitung Kranker und Sterbender lösen sich die Hindernisse zwischen unseren Herzen auf, wenn wir uns der Einzigartigkeit des Anderen gegenüber öffnen und Gedanken und Bewertungen loslassen. Dieses Buch ist eine wertvolle Hilfe für alle auf ihrem Lebensweg, seien sie erkrankt oder gesund, für "Helfer" oder "Betroffene". 'Wege durch den Tod' ist das erste Buch, das uns zeigt, wie die Beschäftigung mit dem Prozess des Sterbens uns für die Unermesslichkeit des Lebens öffnet. Stephen Levine führt uns einfühlsam und voller Poesie auf den Weg des vollkommenen Gewahrseins am Lebens, um uns für alles vorzubereiten, was unerwartet auf uns zukommen kann: Trauer oder Freude, Verlust oder Bereicherung, Tod oder ein anderes neues Lebenswunder.

lt is with great pleasure that I write this preface for Or Li's book, wh ich addresses the venerable and vexing issues surrounding the problem of whether death can be a harm to the person who dies. This problem is an ancient one which was raised long ago by the early Greek philosopher Epicurus, who notoriously argued that death is at no time a harm to its 'victim' because before death there is no harrn and after death there is no victim. Epicurus's conclusion is conspicuously at odds with our prereflective and in most cases our post-reflective-intuitions, and numerous strategies have therefore been proposed to refute or avoid the Epicurean conclusion that death cannot be an evil after all. How then are we to account for our intuition that death is not just an evil, but perhaps the worst evil: that may befall us? This is the key issue that Or Li addresses. Or Li's book explores various alternative approaches to the complex and difficult issues surrounding Epicurus's notorious argument and provides a defence ofthe intuitively plausible conclusion that death can indeed be a harm to the person who dies. This challenge to Epicurus's claim that death is never a harm to the person who dies is developed by way of a detailed exploration of the issues raised not only by Epicurus, but also by his many successors, who have responded variously to the challenging issues which Epicurus raised.

Abortion, Neonatal Care, Assisted Dying, and Capital Punishment
Author: Sheldon Ekland-Olson
This second edition of Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Decides? has been updated to consider the rising stakes for issues of life and death. Abortion, assisted dying, and capital punishment are among the most contentious issues in many societies and demand debate. Whose rights are protected? How do these rights and protections change over time and who makes those decisions? Based on the author’s award-winning and hugely popular undergraduate course at the University of Texas and highly recommended by Choice Magazine, this book explores the fundamentally sociological processes which underlie the quest for morality and justice in human societies. The Author’s goal is not to advocate any particular moral "high ground" but to shed light on the social movements and social processes which are at the root of these seemingly personal moral questions and to develop readers to develop their own opinions.
