ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book presents the history, philosophy and techniques of one of Okinawa's most misunderstood martial arts, Ryukyu Oke Hiden Bujutsu: The Secret Royal Martial Arts. Originally passed down from generation to generation within the Royal family of Okinawa, this is a complete martial art, including weaponry and empty handed techniques. The weapons techniques include not only the classical Okinawan kobudo weapons, but also various swords, spears and halberds, whereas the empty hand techniques include not only strikes to vital areas, but also a plethora of grappling to subdue an opponent with minimal damage. The author was a student of Uehara Seikichi, the legendary heir to the art, and this book is his tribute to the late master.

Schopenhauer: here's when great philosophy can be somber, pessimistic, even brutal, and still resonate with a sarcastic laugh.He was among the first to contend that the universe is essentially not a rational place; in his most famous work, The World as Will and Representation, he argues that the individuals of a species do not have as much free will as is ordinarily thought, as the only will that matters is that of the species, which is to reproduce and carry on. Schopenhauer is very well-known for his radical stance on women, aesthetics, and rhetoric; he is the author of The Art of Being Right, a playful manual designed to utterly crush one's opponent in verbal battle, and of The Metaphysics of the Love of the Sexes, a hilarious application of the theories developed in The World as Will and Representation.We have selected for you 100 of the most powerful quotes written by this somber and playful figure, for you to enjoy his scathing style, profound wisdom, and near-Eastern philosophy. 1.

Everything you need to know when deciding who you want to be the next President of the United States. This piece endeavors to highlight Hillary Rodham-Clinton accomplishments and qualifications to be President of the United States. While her criticisms and scandals are not avoided, they are also not rehashed ad-nauseum. Furthermore, we explore her political philosophy which is rooted in the Machiavellian "realpolitik" school of politics. Whether one loves, loathes, or is indifferent about America's female political powerhouse, it cannot be denied that her list of qualifications and accomplishments to serve as the most powerful person on earth is an impressive one. Moreover, there are two brief lessons on the nature of Machiavellian political theory and the nature of fascism, the latter being a political platform not so subtly espoused by her opponent Donald Trump. Questions about her political morality are raised where appropriate; however, in turn, the Republican and media witch hunts against her and Bill Clinton are addressed as well. It is a clear, factual, and concise effort to push the undecided voter into Hillary's camp, as we also illustrate the danger presented by Trump's brand of neo-fascist con-artist politics. In the end, November is just around the corner and the fate of America and the planet for the next four years rides on who is sworn into the presidency in January 2017. 1. Language: English.

The Real Toscanini: Musicians Reveal the Maestr...

(Amadeus). Lauded by Verdi, Debussy, and other music legends, the celebrated conductor Arturo Toscanini raised the standards of orchestral and operatic performance over an astonishing 69 years on the podium. But as he did so, he acquired a reputation as something of a tyrant, who unleashed an explosive temper at musicians if rehearsals did not meet his expectations. In The Real Toscanini , Cesare Civetta presents an intriguing collection of vivid, one-of-a-kind interviews with artists who performed with Toscanini. A portrait of the inner workings of the maestro emerges through these extensive conversations, conducted by the author over a period of 20 years, together with other firsthand recollections. These accounts clarify Toscanini's philosophy, musical style, and techniques. They depict a man tormented by inner demons of anger and depression, which were easily triggered by his frustration at being unable to produce the musical ideal in his mind's ear. Toscanini is also revealed as a vehement anti-Fascist and an unequivocal opponent of totalitarianism and racism. He defied Mussolini and publically opposed Hitler. The book includes a comprehensive account of his 1936 inauguration of what is now known as the Israel Philharmonic, in solidarity with Jewish refugee musicians. Toscanini comes through in this book as a tortured but deeply humane individual, who strove to constantly improve a sincere and humble musician who was, nevertheless, the preeminent maestro of the 20th century. 1.

Life of Lincoln , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 93min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Abraham Lincoln, "The Great Emancipator" and 16th President of the United States, served from 1861 until his assassination. His life is captured brilliantly by writer John Hugh Bowers. The Life of Lincoln depicts an amazing man's triumphs, insecurities, and crushing defeats with uncanny insight: his early poverty and the ambition that propelled him out of it; the shaping of the man and his political philosophy by youthful exposure to Christianity, slavery, and business; his tempestuous marriage and his fatherly love. Lincoln was elected to the presidency by a twist of fate. As an outspoken opponent of the expansion of slavery in the United States, Lincoln won the Republican Party nomination in 1860 and was elected president later that year. He introduced measures that resulted in the abolition of slavery, issuing his Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and promoting the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution in 1865. Lincoln had an unswerving devotion to maintaining the union as he oversaw the grim day-to-day conduct of the war as his vision and acumen led the country forward. During his term, he helped preserve the United States by leading the defeat of the secessionist Confederate States of America in the American Civil War. He closely supervised the victorious war effort, especially the selection of top generals, including Ulysses S. Grant. Legacy Audio is proud to present this incisive study of a turning point in our history and a revealing portrait of its pivotal figure, his greatness etched even more clearly in this very touching human story. 1.
