Majestic and magical landscapes, the soft beauty of fields of flowers, the raw cold of winter: the works of Harald Sohlberg combine a Romantic perception of nature with a contemporary pictorial language akin to Symbolism. This volume assembles some 60 paintings, in addition to a number of drawings, prints and photographs by the artist and grants insight into his conceptual world through his correspondence.0In particular the mountain world surrounding Rondane National Park provided Harald Sohlberg (1869?1935) with inexhaustible inspiration for countless studies and watercolours which were later incorporated into his landscape pictures. This volume places one of his most famous works, 'Winter Night in the Mountains', in a new context and casts light on less well-known aspects of Sohlberg?s oeuvre, which also includes street scenes, for example. One characteristic of his works that is particularly attractive is the lack of people in them - not least because their traces always appear present. This reveals a critical attitude to the modern age and at the same time allows the viewer to become immersed in his or her own stories.00Exhibition: National Gallery, Oslo, Norway (29.9.2018 - 13.1.2019) / Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, UK (13.2. - 2.6.2019) / Museum Wiesbaden, Germany (12.7. - 27.10.2019).

Eng. National acadamy of design, 1995. 266 s., ill. ISBN 1-887149-01-5 Denne boken ble utgitt samtidig med åpningen av en maleriutstilling av Edvard Munchs og Harald Solbergs bilder i National Acadamy of Design. Munchsarbeider er velkjent, men Solbergs arbeider har aldri tidligere vært vist utenfor Norge. Derfor var det viktig å presentere Solberg sammen Munch for det amerikanske publikum. Boken gir derfor en fyldig presentasjon av Sol- bergs liv og arbeid. Den presenterer også de to kunstnernes holdning til norske kunstnerkretser, for deretter å vise samtlige av utstillingens bilder, først i tekst og så i bilder. Flotte farveillustrasjoner.

What do Socrates, Hypatia, Giordano Bruno, Thomas More, and Jan Patocka have in common? First, they were all faced one day with the most difficult of choices: stay faithful to your ideas and die or renounce them and stay alive. Second, they all chose to die. Their spectacular deaths have become not only an integral part of their biographies, but are also inseparable from their work. A "death for ideas" is a piece of philosophical work in its own right; Socrates may have never written a line, but his death is one of the greatest philosophical best-sellers of all time. Dying for Ideas explores the limit-situation in which philosophers find themselves when the only means of persuasion they can use is their own dying bodies and the public spectacle of their death. The book tells the story of the philosopher's encounter with death as seen from several angles: the tradition of philosophy as an art of living; the body as the site of self-transcending; death as a classical philosophical topic; taming death and self-fashioning; finally, the philosophers' scapegoating and their live performance of a martyr's death, followed by apotheosis and disappearance into myth. While rooted in the history of philosophy, Dying for Ideas is an exercise in breaking disciplinary boundaries. This is a book about Socrates and Heidegger, but also about Gandhi's "fasting unto death" and self-immolation; about Girard and Passolini, and self-fashioning and the art of the essay.

The Reincarnating Mind Or The Ontopoietic Outburst In Creative Virtualities

Tymieniecka's phenomenology of life reverses current priorities, stressing the primogenital role of aesthetic enjoyment, rather than cognition, as typifying the Human Condition. The present collection offers clues to a crucial breakthrough in the perennial uncertainties about the powers and prerogatives of the human mind. It proposes human creativity as the pivot of the mind's genesis and its endowment. In the midst of the current defiance of the transcendental certainties of cognition, this turn to the creative act of the human being represents a radical reversion to an approach to human powers that is predominated by the aesthetic virtualities of the Human Condition. The collection lays down the foundations for a new discovery of the human mind, addressing the `plumbing' of the functional system that originates in the creative potentiality of the Human Condition, undercutting the currently prevalent empirical reductionism.
