This book contains a large collection of beautiful figures produced throughout the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century and that represent some characteristic examples of the early days of research in neuroscience. The main aim of this work is to demonstrate to the general public that the study of the nervous system is not only important for the many obvious reasons related to brain function in both health and disease, but also for the unexpected natural beauty that it beholds. This beauty has been discovered thanks to the techniques used to visualize the microscopic structure of the brain, a true forest of colourful and florid neural cells. As illustrated by his marvellous drawings, the studies of Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) no doubt contributed more than those of any other researcher at the time to the growth of modern neuroscience. Thus, we have honored his name in the title of this book, even though the figures contained in the main body of the book are from 91 authors. Looking at the illustrations in this book the readers will not only marvel at Cajal's drawings but they will also find that many of the other early researchers that studied the nervous system were also true artists, of considerable talent and aesthetic sensibility. Thus, the present book contains numerous drawings of some of the most important pioneers in neuroscience, including Deiters, Kolliker, Meynert, Ranvier, Golgi, Retzius, Nissl, Dogiel, Alzheimer, del Rio-Hortega and de Castro. The colourful period: internal structure and chemistry of the cells. This book will be of general interest, not only due to the captivating aesthetic appeal of the illustrations but also because they represent the bases of our current understanding of the nervous system.

“BUTTERFLIES OF THE SOUL” is a heartfelt collection of stirring and colourful poems based on the author's life spanning three decades, from her birthplace of Tauranga, her journies through Africa, England, Indonesia and French Polynesia. Written “wholistically” these poems truly reflect Hope's experience of life by means of style and technique. In “RAINBOWS COME FROM A THREATENING SKY” the reader is held by ideas and pictures which are used to develop several themes simultaneously, a sense of colour, sound and physical surroundings, and she succeeds splendidly in this form of point-counterpoint. In “LES PAPILLONS” personal feelings and experiences are juxtaposed with powerful images and motifs, prompting the reader toward evocative resonances in an unself-conscious way.

Butterflies of the Kruger National Park and Surrounds enables identification of these colourful creatures and hopes to promote general interest in the natural world. A lavish and fascinating introduction raises topics such as classification of Lepidoptera, butterfly behavior, names, biology and life cycle, flower adaptations, larval host plants, etc. Each family is first described, then the subfamily, followed by the genus and finally the species. Each of the known KNP butterfly species is dealt with on its own page, with its common and scientific names, life history, etymology and larval host plants. On the opposite page is a gallery of photographs of the butterfly in its environment, often complemented with life cycle and larval host plant photographs. A distribution map is provided for each butterfly species, with red dots indicating KNP rest camps where the butterfly is found, and a pie chart showing the butterfly’s status – how rare or how common it is.

The Butterfly Theory says, "The flap of a butterfly's wings in Thailand can set off a tornado in Texas, and that energy can have an effect across the world." In a similar way our actions, the things we say and do, all have a ripple effect on the world around us. Small, seemingly insignificant actions often evolve into extraordinary results. Facebook and Twitter (social media sites) are examples of the viral butterfly effect as simple thoughts are posted, and take off to become big deals in cyber-space where everyone is blogging about what we said (and we can't take it back). This Joy & Wisdom of Butterflies will empower you with the necessary tools for making good decisions. This wisdom is meant to be passed on like a burning torch of insight and awareness to future generations, ensuring an ethical foundation for success.

Truly poetic and deeply esoteric, these lectures by Rudolf Steiner have been gathered here in a single volume for the first time, with an in-depth introduction that traces and explains the stages of butterfly metamorphosis. The emergence of the butterfly from its pupa is one of the most moving phenomena we can encounter in nature. We can experience a revelation of spirit in this creature's visible transformations. The butterfly, says Rudolf Steiner, is "a flower blossom lifted into the air by light and cosmic forces." It is a being that develops from and through light, via a process of incorporation and internalization. By gazing into the world of these special and rarefied creatures, we can intuit that they, "ray out something even better than sunlight; they shine spirit light out into the cosmos."

The Spanish anatomist Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) explored the microscopic world of the brain and found a landscape inhabited by distinctly individual cells, later termed neurons. "The mysterious butterflies of the soul," he called them, "whose beating of wings may one day reveal to us the secrets of the mind." Although he ranks among the greatest scientists in history, the name of the Nobel Prize-winning "father of modern neuroscience" is not as well-known as that of Darwin, Pasteur, Galileo, Einstein, Copernicus, and Isaac Newton. The second half of the nineteenth century saw a revolution in the study of the mind. Cajal was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), whose radical theories would scandalize the next century. Before he was a neuroanatomist Cajal conducted psychiatric experiments and before Freud became a psychiatrist, he worked in neuroanatomy. In public, Cajal spoke respectfully about Freud, but in private, Cajal rejected the man and his theories. In order to disprove Freud's "lies," Cajal started to record his own dreams in a diary, part of a notably personal book project, which he worked on from 1918 until his death in 1934. For reasons unknown, Cajal never published this work. Until recently, it was assumed that the manuscript had been destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. The Dreams of Santiago Ramon y Cajal is this lost dream diary, translated into English for the first time. The text is accompanied by an introduction to the life and work of Cajal, his relationship with the famed Viennese psychoanalyst, and the historical context surrounding the contributions of two great dueling intellects.
