La medicina indiana classica (Āyurveda) - Antonella Serena Comba"Il saggio non maledica gli dèi, gli antenati, i demoni, quando si manifesta una malattia nata dal karman, che deriva dal suo errato discernimento. Deve pensare che lui stesso crea il suo piacere e il suo dolore; perciò segua la via che conduce al bene e non abbia paura". Queste parole di Caraka ci mostrano il fondamento di tutta la medicina classica āyurvedica: una profonda consapevolezza della natura del corpo, dei suoi limiti, dell'equilibrio dei diversi elementi fisici e psichici, necessaria tanto al medico intelligente quanto all'individuo desideroso di star bene. L'autrice di questo libro ha

The Vampire Film: Undead Cinema - Jeffrey WeinstockThis introductory volume offers an elegant analysis of the enduring appeal of the cinematic vampire. From Georges M?li?s' early cinematic experiments to "Twilight" and "Let the Right One In," the history of vampires in cinema can be organized by a handful of governing principles that help make sense of this movie monster's remarkable fecundity. Among these principles are that the cinematic vampire is invariably about sex and the vexed human relationship with technology, and that the vampire is always an overdetermined body condensing what a culture considers other. This volume includes in-depth

The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature - Steven Pinker"In The Blank Slate, Steven Pinker explores the idea of human nature and its moral, emotional, and political colorings. He shows how many intellectuals have denied the existence of human nature by embracing three linked dogmas: the Blank Slate (the mind has no innate traits), the Noble Savage (people are born good and corrupted by society), and the Ghost in the Machine (each of us has a soul that makes choices free from biology). Each dogma carries a moral burden, so their defenders have engaged in desperate tactics to discredit the scientists who are now challenging them." "Pinker injects calm
