Aforisma è un termine che proveniente direttamente dal greco, ma per trovare aforismi adatti al gusto moderno bisogna arrivare al Millecinquecento. È in quell’epoca e in quell’ambito che gli esseri umani cominciano a non prendersi troppo sul serio e ad apprezzare i lampi dell’intelligenza che illuminano la realtà senza la pretesa di spiegarla. Con questa convinzione, Pier Luigi Leoni ha raccolto 1111 aforismi famosi e li ha suddivisi per tema: amore, amicizia, umorismo, satira, felicità, e molti altri per offrire una raccolta di frasi da leggiucchiare in libertà e adatte ad ogni occasione.

To go “beyond” the work of a leading intellectual is rarely an unambiguous tribute. However, when Gideon Toury founded Descriptive Translation Studies as a research-based discipline, he laid down precisely that intellectual challenge: not just to describe translation, but to explain it through reference to wider relations. That call offers at once a common base, an open and multidirectional ambition, and many good reasons for unambiguous tribute. The authors brought together in this volume include key players in Translation Studies who have responded to Toury’s challenge in one way or another. Their diverse contributions address issues such as the sociology of translators, contemporary changes in intercultural relations, the fundamental problem of defining translations, the nature of explanation, and case studies including pseudotranslation in Renaissance Italy, Sherlock Holmes in Turkey, and the coffee-and-sugar economy in Brazil. All acknowledge Translation Studies as a research-based space for conceptual coherence and creativity; all seek to explain as well as describe. In this sense, we believe that Toury’s call has been answered beyond expectations.

Some thirty years ago filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard told critic Gene Youngblood, I am trying to change the world. He has pursued his revolution in works ranging from the explosive Breathless to the eloquent Contempt to the controversial Hail Mary and the postmodern Histoire(s) du cinéma, shaking up conventional formulas with boldly innovative ap-proaches to every aspect of cinema and video-including film criticism via provocative essays in Cahiers du Cinéma and interviews dating to the early years of his career. This book presents a varied selection of his conversations with critics, scholars, and journalists, spanning the 1960s to the 1990s and illuminating key facets of his life, work, and ideas. Topics include the seductiveness of cinema (Films are the only things by which to look inside of people, and that's why people are so fond of movies and why they'll never die); film as a blend of truth and beauty (I mix images and sounds like a scientist, I hope. The mystery of the scientific is the same as the mystery of the artist. So is the misery); and the personal realities of aging (Maybe it's that when you get old, in one way you feel younger and younger but still being old-young oldness, if I may say so, which is very. . .comforting). As challenging and evocative as they are quirky and unpredictable, these interviews cast light on Godard's lifelong position as a proudly unclassifiable thinker who feels, as he said in 1980, that a language is obviously made to cross borders. I'm someone whose real country is language, and whose territory is movies. David Sterritt is an associate professor of film at Long Island University and film critic of The Christian Science Monitor.

Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice links the psyche's different psychodynamic processes to specific neuronal mechanisms in the brain. The book focuses specifically on how the brain is organized and how this organization enables the brain to differentiate between neuronal and psychodynamic states, that is, the brain and the psyche.

There are living things so tiny millions could fit on a dot. Although they are invisible, they are everywhere and they multiply very quickly. They are vital for life on earth, and do all sorts of things - from giving us a cold and making yoghurt to wearing down mountains and helping to make the air we breathe. With charming illustrations by Emily Sutton, this friendly, clever book succeeds in conveying the complex science of micro-organisms simply and clearly, and opens up an exciting new avenue for young non-fiction.

"The Iter Italicum by P.O. Kristeller constitutes the most comprehensive finding list available of previously uncatalogued or incompletely catalogued Renaissance humanistic manuscripts found in libraries and collections all over the world. Published by Brill Academic Publischers in six volumes between 1963 and 1992, it is an essential tool for any scholar working in the fields of classical, medieval and Renaissance studies. In response to the demands of many users, Brill, in conjunction with Dr Luciano Floridi (Wolfson College, Oxford), is publishing a digital version of the "Iter Italicum on CD-ROM, providing full, quick and easy access to the vast body of invaluable information contained in Professor Kristeller's opus magnum. In the course of a few seconds, the user can search through the 6.000 pages comprising over 22 million characters to find the information they need. The CD-ROM offers a wide range of search possibilities. Using Boolean operators, you can search not only on country, place, library and collection, but also on any key word or combination of key words. With this facility, you can obtain virtually instant access to a wealth of information on themes and subjects, MS titles, incipits, and persons (authors, translators, patrons and dedicatees) in the hundreds of collections and thousands of manuscripts listed and excerpted in the "Iter Italicum. You can save and load your queries, save the results of searches, and mark, edit and transfer information for use in your own documents or Windows databases. Other helpful features include contexts searches and a built-in dictionary of spelling variants of certain words (which is invoked during queries). You are also ableto add your own systems of bookmarks and notes to the text of the "Iter Italicum (and to save them to disk for use in later work sessions on the CD-ROM), so that even when used in library setting the "Iter Italicum on CD-ROM becomes a personalised research tool. The "Iter Italicum on CD-ROM allows you to make full use of the potential of this mine of information. It offers access to types of information that were not easily available in the printed volumes. It therefore facilitates immensely the first state of independent study of the Renaissance and Later Scholasticism and the identification of sources, and as such provides the starting point for any research in the field.
