The Source of Self-Regard

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arguably the most celebrated and revered writer of our time now gives us a new nonfiction collection--a rich gathering of her essays, speeches, and meditations on society, culture, and art, spanning four decades. The Source of Self-Regard is brimming with all the elegance of mind and style, the literary prowess and moral compass that are Toni Morrison's inimitable hallmark. It is divided into three parts: the first is introduced by a powerful prayer for the dead of 9/11; the second by a searching meditation on Martin Luther King Jr., and the last by a heart-wrenching eulogy for James Baldwin. In the writings and speeches included here, Morrison takes on contested social issues: the foreigner, female empowerment, the press, money, "black matter(s)," and human rights. She looks at enduring matters of culture: the role of the artist in society, the literary imagination, the Afro-American presence in American literature, and in her Nobel lecture, the power of language itself. And here too is piercing commentary on her own work (including The Bluest Eye, Sula, Tar Baby, Jazz, Beloved, and Paradise) and that of others, among them, painter and collagist Romare Bearden, author Toni Cade Bambara, and theater director Peter Sellars. In all, The Source of Self-Regard is a luminous and essential addition to Toni Morrison's oeuvre.

In this hour, philosopher David Chalmers is famous for outlining the "hard problem of consciousness." He says the materialist framework of science will never be able to explain subjective experience - our thoughts and feelings, the expereince of joy or sorrow, self-awareness. Next, neuroscientist David Eagleman says most of the brain's real action happens below the level of the conscious mind. He tells Anne Strainchamps that the brain can be described as "a team of rivals," with different mental functions competing against each other.Then, the laws of physics and biology can explain just about everything about the world we live in, but consciousness is immaterial. So how does something as physical - as wet and gooshy - as the brain produce something as insubstantial as thought? Steve Paulson reports on the conflicting viewpoints of various scientists and philosophers.After that, no creature is more mysterious and amazing than the octopus. Science writer Sy Montgomery discovered this first-hand when she met Athena, an octopus at the New England Aquarium. Following that, philosopher Alva Noe says it's a mistake to regard consciousness as strictly a product of our brain. He says consciousness is something we do; it springs from our body's interactin with the world around us.And finally, pianist Vijay Iyer is one of the most original jazz musicians of his generation. He also has a Ph.D. in music cognition and the rare ability to describe the interplay between music and the brain. [Broadcast Date: July 19, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming.
