✏The Last Lecture Book Summary : "We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."---Randy Pausch A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy? When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living. In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

✏The Last Lecture of Jesus Book Summary : What would you say to your friends and family if you knew for a fact that your time on earth was coming to a close? Is there something you would want them to know? Would you want to leave them with a word of encouragement? Is there something you might want to confess to them? Would you want to assure them of your love? When we read the gospels, it becomes clear that Jesus knew the time had come for Him to be crucified. He knew His time with His disciples was coming to a close. They didn't seem to realize it, and even acted dismissively toward Jesus when He tried to explain that His time to leave this earth was quickly approaching. But Jesus used the remaining time He had with them to communicate some additional words of truth and deep insights into His nature and plan for His followers. Much of what Jesus said to His disciples during this period of time is recorded in chapters 13-17 of the Gospel of John. Some refer to this section as Jesus' "Farewell Discourse" because these were His final teaching moments with His disciples before He was crucified. In our context, we might call this His "last lecture." At this point in His ministry, Jesus has been rejected by the majority of the Jewish people and He turns His attention primarily toward His community of believers. He counsels them and explains that He will be arrested, crucified, buried, and then rise from death. They had a hard time accepting this teaching, but everything transpired just as Jesus said it would.We also know that after His resurrection, Jesus appeared to hundreds of people in His resurrected state and then commissioned His disciples before returning to Heaven. What was the substance of what Jesus taught His followers in the days before this all took place? What did He use those moments to communicate? Why did He want His disciples to know this information and why was it passed along to us? In the coming chapters, we'll be examining the counsel Christ has given us in His "last lecture."

✏The Beast and the Sovereign Book Summary : When he died in 2004, Jacques Derrida left behind a vast legacy of unpublished material, much of it in the form of written lectures. With The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1, the University of Chicago Press inaugurates an ambitious series, edited by Geoffrey Bennington and Peggy Kamuf, translating these important works into English. The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1 launches the series with Derrida’s exploration of the persistent association of bestiality or animality with sovereignty. In this seminar from 2001–2002, Derrida continues his deconstruction of the traditional determinations of the human. The beast and the sovereign are connected, he contends, because neither animals nor kings are subject to the law—the sovereign stands above it, while the beast falls outside the law from below. He then traces this association through an astonishing array of texts, including La Fontaine’s fable “The Wolf and the Lamb,” Hobbes’s biblical sea monster in Leviathan, D. H. Lawrence’s poem “Snake,” Machiavelli’s Prince with its elaborate comparison of princes and foxes, a historical account of Louis XIV attending an elephant autopsy, and Rousseau’s evocation of werewolves in The Social Contract. Deleuze, Lacan, and Agamben also come into critical play as Derrida focuses in on questions of force, right, justice, and philosophical interpretations of the limits between man and animal.
