ISBN-13: 9788484591719

Este libro del profesor Alfonso López Quintás exalta
y pone a punto el tema controvertido del liderazgo
pedagógico. Lejos de posiciones reacias o escépticas
a l. a. función del liderazgo, el autor pone de relieve su
necesidad, su nobleza y —cómo no— su creatividad,

desde el punto de vista estético y hermenéutico. Esta
obra debe ser también leída como un handbook de formación
para l. a. juventud, tarea a los angeles que el autor se
dedica a través de su Escuela de Pensamiento y Creatividad.
Por medio de los angeles combinación de los angeles doctrina teórica y
del ejemplo práctico, el libro va señalando los objetivos
del liderazgo (más social y espiritual que económico o
político) que se resumen en dos: facilitar claves de
orientación sobre el sentido de l. a. vida y proponer al
respecto pautas de conducta certeras y adecuadas. Para
ello se precisa, según los angeles filosofía de López Quintás, la
corrección de actitudes en el sentido de los angeles excelencia
—valga como muestra su thought de que el “vértigo”
existencial ha de ser sustituido por lo que él denomina
“éxtasis”— y los angeles reconducción, en definitiva, de todo el
humano conjunto de opiniones, creencias y tendencias
diversas hacia los angeles síntesis de una creciente y fecunda
unidad.

I libri nella mia vita (Biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian - download pdf or read online

By Henry Miller,R. Colajanni

ISBN-10: 8845928837

ISBN-13: 9788845928833

Che i libri si possano incontrare – prima ancora che leggere – così come si incontrano «altri fenomeni della vita e del pensiero», e che della vita facciano parte «quanto gli alberi, le stelle, o il letame», è l'aureo presupposto su cui poggia questo «libro sui libri» di Henry Miller, caso anomalo e inclassificabile, riconducibile forse soltanto al genere immaginario dell'autobibliogra­fia. Pochi scrittori hanno saputo rivelare se stessi come Miller attraverso quegli incontri, e queste pagine, lungi dal­l'essere un catalogo erudito, assomigliano piuttosto a una tortuosa e camuffata confessione. Dall'ec­centrico estremo di John Cowper Powys a Richard Jefferies, panpsichista romantico, dal­l'adorato Cendrars a Jean Giono e Rider Haggard: "I libri nella mia vita" è anche una guida preziosa, che permette di scoprire e riscoprire, accanto ai grandi intoccabili della letteratura, una vasta tribù di autori sconosciuti o presto dimenticati, ma non in line with questo meno vivi. l. a. storia segreta di ogni vero lettore non è fatta di tutti i libri che ha letto, e nemmeno di quelli più significativi o più belli – sembra avvertirci Miller –, ma soprattutto di alcuni, a volte non più di una manciata, che si distanziano enormemente dagli altri. Sono quei libri che, «come certi rari individui, aumentano los angeles vita», e sembra siano stati scritti apposta in step with noi. in line with riconoscerli non esiste through certa: occorre farsi strada abbandonandosi al caso – «se l'oc­chio è sempre vigile, e los angeles mente sempre al­l'er­ta, il caso fi­nisce in line with darci l. a. soluzione» –, lasciarsi andare al «gioco dell'in­seguimen­to», e tenere bene a mente il celebre motto di Napoleone: «Non andrà lontano chi sa in anticipo dove vuole andare».

Di Dante, come di tanti altri scrittori, Borges si è dimostrato capace di dirci ciò che altrove non troveremmo, ma soprattutto di dircelo a partire da presupposti e angolature a lui solo accessibili.

In queste pagine, degne dei migliori saggi di "Altre inquisizioni", Borges intravede nell’ultimo viaggio di Ulisse «un occulto e intricato suicidio» simile a quello del capitano Ahab di "Moby Dick"; scopre nella "Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum" di Beda il Venerabile visioni anticipatrici della "Commedia", e nell’Aquila splendente del diciottesimo canto del Paradiso affinità col Simurg persiano; riflette sulla contraddittoria compassione di Dante in keeping with Francesca, e los angeles spiega evocando il Raskol’nikov di "Delitto e castigo" e il grande e sfortunato amore in keeping with Beatrice, motivo nel quale riconosce los angeles vera genesi dell’opera: «Morta Beatrice, perduta according to sempre Beatrice, Dante giocò con l. a. finzione di ritrovarla, in step with mitigare los angeles tristezza; io personalmente penso che abbia edificato los angeles triplice architettura del suo poema consistent with introdurvi quell’incontro».
In questo quantity, pubblicato according to los angeles prima volta nel 1982, Borges radunò scritti in line with lo più apparsi in giornali e riviste sul finire degli anni Quaranta; viene qui aggiunto nell’Appendice il testo di una conferenza sulla "Divina Commedia" tenuta nel 1977 al Teatro Coliseo di Buenos Aires.
