✏For the Love of Beauty Book Summary : For most of the last century the methodology of art history has followed a positivist approach, emphasizing form and style, fact and history as the means of studying works of art. By contrast the philosophical pursuit of truth, once central to the fine arts and humanities has largely been abandoned. In For The Love of Beauty, Arthur Pontynen offers a searching and ambitious critique of modern aesthetic practice that aims to restore the pursuit of the knowledge of reality--Being--to its rightful place.Pontynen begins by addressing the question of why the pursuit of truth (be it called Dao, Dharma, God, Logos, Ideal, etc.) is no longer acceptable in academic circles even though it has been intrinsic to the purpose of art at most times and in most cultures. Lacking the pursuit of truth, of some degree of knowledge of what is true and good, the humanities necessarily lack intellectual and cultural grounding and purpose. Fields of study such as philosophy, music, art, and history are therefore trivialized and brutalized. Pontynen's focus on the study of the visual arts details the how the denial of purpose and quality in modernist and postmodernist aesthetics has denied art any possibility of transcending entertainment, therapy, or propaganda.In place of the established narratives, Pontynen offers a counter-narrative based on a cross-cultural pursuit of the good, the true, and the beautiful. He recognizes that substantively different cultural traditions exist and that the truth claims of each may be valid in whole or in part. He shows how the history of art parallels the intellectual history of Western culture and how these parallels affect both aesthetics and ethics. Pontynen engages with those elements of modernist and postmodernist thought that might be true. His purpose is not simply to deny their validity but to engage a viewpoint that does not privilege the notion of a purposeless cosmos. For the Love of Beauty will be of interest

✏For the Love of Teaching Book Summary : Multicultural perspectives abound in these interview portraits of teachers from every state and setting. Any stereotypes readers may have about teachers will go right out the window as they enjoy these anecdotes that reveal the real reasons teachers teach.Seven themes emerge: life work, connection, change, surprise, adventure, fulfillment, and love. Represented in fifty-four interviews with teachers are all fifty states plus Puerto Rico as a U.S. commonwealth; all grades; urban, suburban, and rural areas; private and public schools; and alternative settings such as military and prison classrooms. The author's questions remain hidden as the teachers, in their own separate voices, reflect on their work. The author notes By listening to the voices of those who would teach us, we come to understand not only what learning means but what living means. For it is through our teachers that we begin to discover who we are as human beings, and what we want to be as a society. The Foreword was written by Eric Oddleifson, a successful businessman who is also active in efforts to improve American schools. He writes, This book describes the type of person we need to attract to the teaching profession, as it gives voice to the enthusiasm, the passion, the commitment that invades his or her being. There can be no finer calling, requiring the clearest demonstration or moral and ethical behavior.

✏From the Love of Wisdom a New View of Being Human Book Summary : The simplest truth, when observed in our daily lives, has an amazing effect. That truth? What is focused on GROWS. It is typical in our society today to use labels or groupings or diagnoses as the lens through which we focus on ourselves and others. From this perspective our view of ourselves, of others, can be cut short, distorted and fragmented. Suppose instead we could view ourselves and others through the lens that each person has an inborn, inviolable power to take action in living life. Then suppose that this POWER becomes our focus. Suddenly, we have a whole new view of ourselves and of being human. With this perspective, we accept one another as being responsible, as being in control of the actions we take, as having an integral place in our homes and communities. This is the power of the ultimate yes or no, it is profound and it can change the world. A New View of Being Human offers in plain language, a description of the complex, intangible processes that comprise this power of the human being. Any word spoken, any action taken, any feeling experienced by any person is the result of these processes. The processes are universal to every person, yet are unique in each one of us. This book provides the reader with a platform for considering what it means to grow in understanding the power of being human and the value of each one's contribution to this world in which we live.

✏Philosophical Ruminations Theosophical Illuminations Book Summary : These two 'posthumous' publications to John O'Loughlin's oeuvre-proper were culled, like the material of 'Opus Postscriptum', from two of his blogsites and contain material of an essayistic and aphoristic nature which has been extensively revised and reformatted to suit the parameters of e-book publication. There is a sense, though only a loose one, in which the first book corresponds to physics and the second, the so-called 'Theosophical Illuminations', to metaphysics; though that is more in the form than in the substance, since both books are equally radical and thoroughgoing in their approach to metaphysics and kindred subjects.
