APPENDIX I: Book reviews

Seligman, Eva Karnac Books ePub

Neumann, Erich.

Kunst und Schöpferisches Unbewusstes (Art and the Creative Unconscious). 1980. Pp. vii + 166. Zurich: Daimon Verlag, pbk.

This volume, first published by Rascher in 1954, contains three essays concerned with the relationship of the artist to society. Neumann postulates that it is the artist’s task to give expression to the original, formless archetypal patterns. The resultant images are, in his view, influenced by the era, by society, and by the context in which they are conceived, while, at all times, taking on their own individual mould from the psyche of the creative artist. The task of the artist, therefore, is to create by means of his own imagination, rather than be dominated by prevailing norms and the culture of the time in which he lives.

The three essays are headed: “Leonardo da Vinci and the mother archetype”, “Art and its epoch”, and “Comments regarding Marc Chagall”.

In his essay on Leonardo da Vinci, the author concentrates on the connection between the creative artist and his work, combined with the influence of the collective unconscious, most particularly the archetype of the great mother. This leads him beyond the point where Freud made his stand. Furthermore, a clarification of how Leonardo’s creative genius was predominantly affected by those very core problems that eventually became the collective unconscious of modern man.

Counties Wexford, Waterford, Carlow & Kilkenny

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

Pop 409,100 / Area 7194 sq km

Counties Wexford, Waterford, Carlow and Kilkenny are (along with the southern chunk of Tipperary) referred to collectively as the 'sunny southeast'. This being Ireland the term is, of course, relative. But it is the country's warmest, driest region. A tiara of golden-sand beaches adorns the counties of Wexford and Waterford, and there are plenty more eye-catching gems, including picturesque thatched cottages, elegant seaside towns and dramatic windswept peninsulas. If you're looking for real sparkle, check out the world-acclaimed Waterford crystal. Deeper inland, the verdant valley of the River Barrow separates the riverside villages and arts and crafts studios of County Kilkenny from the country houses and flower-filled gardens of County Carlow. Kilkenny city is the urban star with its imposing castle, cathedral, medieval lanes and cracking pubs and restaurants. And thanks to that 'sunny southeast' climate, these four counties offer some of Ireland's best outdoor pursuits.

Build and Engage a

Strong Network of

Partnerships

It takes a village to raise a child.

—African proverb

Education, at its root, is designed to produce graduates with the capacity to thrive in their communities. Effective school systems improve society in a number of ways.

For example, the local economy grows because educated citizens earn more money, pay more taxes, and spend more money to support local businesses. Community partners and local business owners, therefore, have a vested interest in the school system. The question that mathematics leaders have to answer is, How will we leverage the resources available from community leaders and business owners to support our vision for exemplary mathematics teaching and learning?

In this chapter, we explore strategies that engage your network of community stakeholders as equal partners in mathematics education by:

5 Making Places in Space: Miners and Collectors in Guanajuato and Tucson

Elizabeth Emma Ferry Indiana University Press ePub

5 MAKING PLACES IN SPACE: MINERS AND COLLECTORS IN GUANAJUATO AND TUCSON

Figure 5.1, a map featured in a report titled Potencial Minero de Guanajuato (Franco 1997) shows Guanajuato’s centrality in Mexico, in particular the fact that over 60 percent of the country’s population lives within a 350-kilometer radius (thus implying the density of infrastructure and services). The radiating circles on the map give an image of the mines and city of Guanajuato as a central origin point, with its subsoil resources expanding centrifugally to the rest of the country, and by extension, the world.

This image and the sensibility behind it contrast with many other views of the movement of mineral resources from mines to market, both for “regular people” and for social scientists. Within such views, for instance, mined ores such as silver, gold, or copper are quintessential raw materials, extracted from the “ends of the earth” and brought to the centers of global finance in New York and London. Likewise, mineral specimens are produced in geographically distant places and brought to Tucson, Munich, Denver, and other mineral marketplaces. In fact, even when minerals come from near these marketplaces, they are often treated as pristine emissaries of the margins of the cultural world. People also move from all over to a central meeting point at these mineral shows. Tucson, in particular, is called the “Mecca for mineral collectors,” emphasizing its role as a pilgrimage site and meeting place for the faithful all over the planet.1
