Seventh Realm Part 1 Book Review:

War has come to the Willful Institute. It has come to the first realm. For years Alva has trained, developed weapons and tactics never seen in the ten realms. Now Alva moves in the background, supporting the Adventurer's Guild. No band of fighters, no sect looking to gain individual honors. The armies of Alva were forged together in Alva dungeon. Tempered in body, in mind, in mana. Supported by Alvan traders, crafters, they reclaimed the lost floors of their home. They captured Vuzgal and defended it in the vicious battlefield realm. Now Alva is going to war. Their abilities, their skills tested head on. One individual is strong. A nation focused, a nation brought together for a single goal. It is something that could shake the very foundations of the ten realms. A beast stirs in the Beast Mountain Range, raising their eyes to the higher realms. It is time Erik and Rugrat stepped out of the shadows.

Fragile Spaces Book Review:

This book consists of a range of essays covering the complex crises, tensions and dilemmas but also the positive potential in the meeting of Jews with Western culture. In numerous contexts and through the work of fascinating individuals and thinkers, the work examines some of the consequences of political, cultural and personal rupture, as well as the manifold ways in which various Jewish intellectuals, politicians (and occasionally spies!) sought to respond to these ruptures and carve out new, sometimes profound, sometimes fanciful, options of thought and action. It also delves critically into the attacks on liberal and Enlightenment humanism. In almost all the essays the fragility of things is palpably present and the book touches on some of the ironies, problematics and functions of responses to that condition. The work mirrors the author's ongoing fascination with the always fraught, fragile and creatively fecund confrontation of Jews (and others) with European modernity, its history, politics, culture and self-definition. In a time of increasing anxiety and feelings of fragility, this work may be helpful in understanding how people at an earlier (and sometimes contemporary) period sought to come to terms with a similar predicament.

Originally published in 1889, this work's protagonist Andrea Sperelli introduced the Italian culture to aestheticism and a taste for decadence. The young count seeks beauty, despises the bourgeois world, and rejects the basic rules of morality and social interaction. His corruption is evident in his sadistic superimposing of two women.

Jung in Love Book Review:

Love was the great mystery in C. G. Jung's life. His confrontation with love for a woman and a feminine soul animated the composition of Jung's great Red Book, the book he formally titled Liber Novus. C. G. Jung's relationships with women during these central years of life have generated several commentaries and critiques. But the power and depth of love has figured little in most of the romances about this period patched together by biographers, dramatists, and psychoanalysts. In consequence, a crux experience of Jung's life has been miscast and little understood. Three decades after the events chronicled in his Red Book, C. G. Jung turned to writing a commentary on the still hidden records. In Jung in Love, Lance Owens illustrates how Jung's four last books -- his "last quartet" of major works published after 1945 -- are summary statements about his experiences during the years he labored with Liber Novus. Owens illustrates how in the first volume of this "last quartet" -- The Psychology of the Transference, published in 1946 -- Jung employed a sixteenth-century alchemical text to provide context for what is in fact a statement about his own experience with love recounted both in his private journals and in Liber Novus. Based on long-sequestered documentary sources, Jung in Love offers a balanced and historically contextualized account of Jung's relationships with four women during the years that led him into the visionary experiences recorded in the Red Book: Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, Sabina Spielrein, Maria Moltzer and Toni Wolff. Jung in Love - The Mysterium in Liber Novus was originally published as a chapter in Das Rote Buch – C. G. Jungs Reise zum anderen Pol der Welt, ed. Thomas Arzt (Verlag Königshausen & Neumann, 2015). This English monograph edition adds illustrations and minor corrections to the previously published edition.

The Sacred and the Profane Book Review:

Famed historian of religion Mircea Eliade observes that even moderns who proclaim themselves residents of a completely profane world are still unconsciously nourished by the memory of the sacred. Eliade traces manifestations of the sacred from primitive to modern times in terms of space, time, nature, and the cosmos. In doing so he shows how the total human experience of the religious man compares with that of the nonreligious. This book serves as an excellent introduction to the history of religion, but its perspective also emcompasses philosophical anthropology, phenomenology, and psychology. It will appeal to anyone seeking to discover the potential dimensions of human existence. -- P. [4] of cover.

Interior Architecture Book Review:

Interior Architecture John Kurtich Garret Eakin The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Increased specialization within the design professions has led to a growing separation of architecture, interior design, and the fine arts and limited the development of humanistic architectural space. This book of ideas helps to close this gap by explaining and illustrating principles of interior architecture that are based on a spatial point of view. The authors unveil the essence of ideas that generate physical form and space, as well as emphasize that interior architecture must be regarded as a union of disciplines. They focus on philosophical concepts that make up the history of interior architecture and juxtapose historical and modern examples to explain underlying design principles, exposing the links between art, architecture,and interior design. Particular attention is given to how fusion of interior architecture with other disciplines maximizes the potential of design to provide for human accommodation, comfort, and pleasure. Key topics discussed include three-dimensional development, respect for the enclosing architecture, sensitivity to human experience, the primacy of light and color, and furnishings as an extension of architecture. Case studies of historical, contemporary, and unbuilt examples reveal the reasons behind the creation of designs and the decision-making that accompanied execution of these designs. These examples provide insights into key specialities such as renovation, uses of the computer, and adaptive reuse. Quotes from artists, architects, and designers reinforce the philosophy revealed by the studies. Concepts from related fields such as physics, music, cinema, literature, painting, sculpture, and other fields are included to clarify the creative process. Among the important areas addressed are:The relevance of the fourth dimension as the most profound element of designHow light as the quintessence of spatial definition has been used to define space by masters such as Le Corbusier, Kahn, Aalto, and WrightThe evolution of retail, commercial, residential, and hospitality space from early examples to the presentThe emotional character of interior space established by colorHow furnishings in dialogue with the enclosure provide intimate human comfortHow persisting styles express the spirit of the eraMore than 400 photographs, including 57 in color, offer a stunning visual exploration of path-breaking interior design ideas over the centuries. Far more than a history of the discipline, this guide offers powerful images and provocative ideas that stimulate new ways of thinking about interior design. It is an essential resource for all interior designers, architects, and students.
