Die Welt unserer Gefühle aber, die so fundamental die Existenz des Menschen bestimmen, scheint diffus und ungreifbar. Schritt für Schritt dringen heute die Neurowissenschaften bei der Erforschung des Gehirns in diese faszinierende Welt ein und erkennen, dass beide Systeme, das rationale und das emotionale, in beständiger, hochkomplexer Wechselwirkung agieren

It is the greatest crime a captain can commit, and it dooms him to hell on earth. Trapped in Marseilles, Marius spends his days begging for a boat and his nights in a bitter, alcoholic stupor.

Futility : a novel on Russian themes by William Alexander Gerhardie( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in Spanish and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Hailed by his famous contemporaries including Edith Wharton, H.G. Wells, Katherine Mansfield, Graham Greene, and Evelyn Waugh, who called him a "genius," William Gerhardi is one of the twentieth century's forgotten masters, and his lovely comedy Futility one of the century's neglected masterpieces. It tells the story of someone very similar to Gerhardi himself: a young Englishman raised in Russia who returns to St. Petersburg and falls in love with the daughter of a hilariously dysfunctional family--all played out with the armies of the Russian Revolution marching back and forth outside the parlor window. Part British romantic comedy, part Russian social realism, and with a large cast of memorable characters, this astoundingly funny and poignant novel is the tale of people persisting in love and hope despite the odds. From the Trade Paperback edition
