Deeply personal and powerfully moving, a short and timely series of essays on the experience of lock down, by one of the most clear-sighted and essential writers of our time "There will be many books written about the year 2020: historical, analytic, political and comprehensive accounts. This is not any of those--the year isn't half-way done. What I've tried to do is organize some of the feelings and thoughts that events, so far, have provoked in me, in those scraps of time the year itself has allowed. These are above all personal essays: small by definition, short by necessity." Crafted with the sharp intelligence, wit, and style that have won Zadie Smith millions of fans, and suffused with a profound intimacy and tenderness in response to these unprecedented times, Intimations is a vital work of art, a gesture of connection, and an act of love--an essential book in extraordinary times.

Intimations Poetry in the timeless tradition of the Mind?s Eye This is an astounding collection of intellectual poetry worthy of the Gold Seal of Literary Excellence. Venilla Rajaguru displays remarkable skills in the metaphorical stylistics of her poetic art. Most of the poems are in the form of poetic tales, poetic verse narratives telling a story, either a social satire or a philosophical, didactic story. These stories offer intimations of the mind?s eye, philosophical stances on realities and illusions, personal and social responsibilities in love and life. This is a rare collection of poetry that is thought provoking, inspiring, and enjoyable to read. The poems are organized under three distinct yet correlated thematic frameworks: lifescape, lovescape, and blindscape. Each section is genuinely an intellectual discovery of stylistics and themes, interconnected by the central metaphor of this book, the mind?s eye. A must-read for poetry lovers! Fiction readers will find the poetic stories truly engaging!

Heidegger&’s thinking has an underlying unity, this book argues, and has cogency for seemingly diverse domains of modern culture: philosophy and religion, aesthetics and literary criticism, intellectual history and social theory. &“The theme of mortality&—finite human existence&—pervades Heidegger&’s thought,&” in the author&’s words, &“before, during, and after his magnum opus, Being and Times, published in 1927.&” This theme is manifested in Heidegger&’s work not &“as funereal melodramatics or as despair and destructive nihilism&” but rather &“as a thinking within anxiety.&” & Four major subthemes in Heidegger&’s thinking are explored in the book&’s four parts: the fundamental ontology developed in Being and Time; the &“lighting and clearing&” of Being, understood as &“unconcealment&”; the history of philosophy&—with emphasis on Heraclitus, Hegel, and Nietzsche&—interpreted as the &“destiny&” of Being; and the poetics of Being, explicated as the &“fundamental experience&” of mortality. & Neither an introduction nor a survey, this book is a close reading of a wide range of Heidegger&’s books, lectures, and articles&—including extensive material not yet translated into English&—informed by the author&’s conversations with Heidegger in 1974&–76. Each of the four subthemes is treated critically. The aim of the book is to push its interrogations of Heidegger&’s thought as far as possible, in order to help the reader toward an independent assessment of his work and to encourage novel, radically conceived approaches to traditional philosophical problems.

Intimations Of Global Law by Neil Walker

"This is a book about how we might fruitfully think about global law. Few terms are more topical in the transnational legal literature. Yet there has been little serious discussion - and little agreement where there has been discussion - on what is meant by 'global law', if, indeed, it means anything of note at all. In what follows, I suggest that we can nonetheless arrive at a core sense of global law as an emergent idea and practice"--

Spiritual Intimations by John O'Loughlin

The poetic sequel to 'Stressing the Essential', this 1983 volume of some thirty-four poems in free verse is even more ideologically homogeneous, as it strives to delineate and advance, within poetic form, the concept of Social Transcendentalism as bearing on a variety of contexts, not least political, religious, cultural, and social. Certainly 'Spiritual Intimations' is poetically more assured than its precursor, as well as deeper and thematically more expansive.

John's Gospel has traditionally been regarded as the least apocalyptic document in the New Testament. This exciting new collection redresses the balance by exploring the ways in which the apocalyptic literature of Second Temple Judaism has contributed to the theology and outlook of John's Gospel. Given that John, like the Jewish apocalyptic texts, is primarily concerned with the theme of revelation, the contributors examine how apocalyptic ideas can help to explain the Johannine portrayal of Jesus as the messenger sent from heaven to reveal the divine mysteries, as well as the Gospel's presentation of the activity of the Spirit, its understanding of evil, and the intended effects of this 'apocalypse in reverse' on its readers and hearers. The highly distinguished contributors include, John Ashton, Christopher Rowland, April DeConick, Judith Lieu and Jorg Frey.
