Islam in Indonesia:The Contest for Society Ideas and Values Carool Kersten
The World Fantasy Award-winning third volume of the Lyonesse trilogy brings attention to the faerie changeling Madouc. Where princess Suldrun once meekly endured the proprieties of Castle Haidion, Madouc defends herself with rotten fruit. Vexed, King Casmir arranges a contest to marry her off, but Madouc has other ideas, and enlists the stableboy ´´Sir Pom-pom´´ on an impromptu quest to find her father. During their travels, they encounter swindlers, faeries, trolls, ogres, a knight in search of his youth, and a relatively pedestrian item known as the Holy Grail. As the sorcerers Shimrod and Murgen investigate portents of cataclysm in the world of magic, Casmir plans a murder that will bring all the lands under his iron rule; however, his ambitions will be complicated by one small but important oversight-he´s failed to allow for Madouc! 1.

A Macat analysis of Plato´s The Symposium Translated by M. C. Howatson. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2008 It may sound like the set-up for a joke - ´´A playwright, a philosopher, and a general walk into party...´´ But, some 2,500 years after it was written, Plato´s Symposium remains a key text for philosophers, historians, writers, artists, and politicians. Plato imagines a dinner party - a symposium - held in the Athens of the late fifth century BC. He invites seven important historical figures including the philosopher Socrates, the comic playwright Aristophanes, and the notorious military general Alcibiades. As entertainment, each guest gives a speech praising eros (human love or erotic desire). Plato then ´´collects´´ these seven speeches into Symposium. Plato often used this ´´dramatic dialogue,´´ and many scholars consider Symposium to be the finest example of the technique. From this vibrant contest of words, Plato presents key philosophical ideas about love, ethics, knowledge and the fundamental nature of being. Combining a dynamic literary portrait of intellectuals at play with a series of radical philosophical concepts, Symposium continues to captivate and educate listeners to this day. You can find out more about how Plato´s ideas have been challenged and applied - and how his work has impacted on thinkers in other academic disciplines - by exploring further in the Macat Library. Macat´s analyses cover 14 different subjects in the humanities and social sciences. Macat. Learn better. Think smarter. Aim higher. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Macat.com.

He is a man capable of abandoning two sailors in an open boat, yet he is an avid and thoughtful reader of the moral philosophers. He is Wolf Larsen, captain of the seal-hunting Ghost and the unforgettable protagonist of one of the world´s great sea novels. Tormented by his own convictions, Larsen is an enigma both fascinating and repellent to his reluctant crewman, Humphrey Van Weyden. Throughout their long and perilous voyage together, the captain´s ruthless belief in the survival of the fittest is pitted against Van Weyden´s ´´civilization´´, a contest between two opposing views of life that demonstrates Jack London´s gift for expressing complex ideas with exciting action. Together with the other stories selected for this volume, The Sea Wolf is a superb example of the genius of a writer who was, in the words of Maxwell Geismar, ´´the poet of the savage Darwinian struggle´´. 1.

Hari, a remarkably well-set-up young lad, has spent his entire life in a small village with his pious widowed mother, and the purity of his soul is largely uncorrupted by worldly sophistication. But now, poised on the brink of manhood, he feels himself moved by strange new urgings - urgings that will lead him far from the quiet life he has known. Though these strings are unfamiliar to him, virtuous Hari recognizes them for what they are: a hunger for spiritual enlightenment. As so many have before, he sets his feet upon the pilgrim´s path, becoming a wanderer in search of true wisdom. But who can know the ways of the gods, or foretell the twists of fortune? Unbeknownst to Hari, his quest has become the subject of wager between two immortals: Mohini, a pulchritudinous Apsara and the vilely demonic Ravana, who lusts after her. Mohini and Ravana are at an impasse. Both are weary of arguing with each other - but while Mohini´s idea of a happy outcome is to have Ravana go away and leave her alone, Ravana´s ideas run along other lines entirely. They settle upon a contest and a wager, with the loser bound to do the winner´s bidding. Verily, the sages have written that there is a seeker born every minute, but Hari´s journey of discovery is fated to be stranger - and far livelier - than most. 1. Language: English.
