Freud and the non-European by Edward W Said( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Hebrew and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using an array of material from literature, archaeology and social theory, Edward Said's essay is an exploration of the profound implications in Sigmund Freud's Moses and Monotheism for Middle-East politics today." "Demonstrating an abiding interest in Freud's work and its influence upon his own, Said proposes that Freud's assumption that Moses was an Egyptian undermines any simple ascription of a 'pure' identity, and further that identity itself cannot be thought or worked through without the recognition of the limits inherent in it. Said suggests that such an unresolved, nuanced sense of identity might, if embodied in political reality, have formed that basis for a new understanding between Jews and Palestinians. Instead, Israel's relentless march towards an exclusively Jewish state denies any sense of a more complex, inclusive past."--Jacket

He's a hiring partner at one of the world's largest law firms. Brilliant yet ruthless, he has little patience for associates who leave the office before midnight. He hates holidays and paralegals. And he's just started a weblog to tell the world about what life is really like at the top of his profession. Meet Anonymous Lawyer--corner office, granite desk, and a billable rate of $675 an hour. But he's also got a few problems that require his attention. There's The Jerk, his bitter rival at the firm, who is determined to do whatever it takes to beat him out for the chairman's job. There's Anonymous Wife, who is spending his money as fast as he can make it. And there's that secret blog he's writing, which is a perverse bit of fun until he gets an e-mail from someone inside the firm who knows he's its author.--From publisher description of English edition

Purity and danger; an analysis of concepts of pollution and taboo by Mary Douglas( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in Hebrew and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Purity and Danger, Mary Douglas identifies the concern for purity as a key theme at the heart of every society. In lively and lucid prose she explains its relevance for every reader by revealing its wide-ranging impact on our attitudes to society, values, cosmology and knowledge. This book has been hugely influential in many areas of debate - from religion to social theory. But perhaps its most important role is to offer each reader a new explanation of why people behave in the way they do. With a specially commissioned preface by the author which assesses the continuing significance of the work thirty-five years on, this Routledge Classics edition will ensure that Purity and Danger continues to challenge and question well into the new millenium."--Jacket
