Clint Eastwood is one of the world’s most popular action stars,who has matured into a fine American producer-director. Entertaining, illuminating and packed with information, up to and including The Changeling, this is the first book to cover his full life in the movies, from his beginnings in 1950s B-movies and in TV’s Rawhide to Gran Torino showing how as both actor and filmmaker Eastwood aims for the heart of the drama, whatever the story. Howard Hughes follows Eastwood’s craft through over 50 movies. He looks at his launch into superstardom in Sergio Leone’s 1960s spaghetti westerns. Back in America, he built on his success as western hero with such films as High Plains Drifter and The Outlaw Josey Wales, winning an Oscar for Unforgiven in 1992. He blasted his way through the seventies and eighties as Inspector Harry Francis Callahan, the last hope for law enforcement in San Francisco. He also monkeyed around in two phenomenally popular films with Clyde the orang-utan, which brought tough-guy Eastwood to a whole new audience and made him the biggest box office star of his generation. Aim for the Heart also looks at Eastwood’s more unusual roles, including The Beguiled, The Bridges of Madison County and Million Dollar Baby. Since 1970, he has enjoyed parallel success as directorproducer of his own Malpaso Productions, with Bird, Mystic River and Letters from Iwo Jima, demonstrating formidable directing credentials. Aim for the Heart covers all Eastwood's movies of many genres in detail, and Eastwood’s story is illustrated with film stills, glimpses behind the scenes, and rare poster advertising material. Aim for the Heart also includes the most comprehensive credits filmography has ever compiled on Eastwood’s work, as star and director.

Doch im Ford Mercury wirken andere Kräfte, hier lernt Pearl das Träumen. Bis mit Eli ein Mann auftaucht, der das Herz der Mutter stielt ... Gun Love liest sich wie ein Trip. Jennifer Clement schreibt vom Band zwischen Mutter und Tochter und dem Waffenwahnsinn ihrer Heimat, sie erzählt in strahlenden Bildern eine Geschichte, in der Liebe und Gewalt, Magie und Fakt, Sorge und Freude haltlos ineinander fallen.

This is an introductory guide to Process Theology for undergraduates. As part of Contiuum's 'Guide for the Perplexed' series, this text provides an accessible introduction to process theology, aimed at nurturing the theological imagination of undergraduates, pastors and interested laypersons. It describes the major themes of process theology and relates them to the everyday lives and spiritual commitments of people today. In addition to addressing traditional theological issues, Epperly addresses cutting edge issues in theology and ethics such as pluralism and postmodernism, matters of life and death, science (technology and genetics), and emerging forms of Christianity. This text is designed for seminary and university classes as well as congregational study. It will help readers to overcome the obstacles created by the technical language often employed by process theologians. Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

Ethics, published (anonymously) by Coornhert in 1586, is a remarkable publication for a number of reasons: it is the first work on ethics written in a European vernacular; it is a mature work, appearing four years before Coornhert’s death, and summarizes a lifetime of writing and thinking about the good life; it is considered to be fundamentally pagan because of the absence in Zedekunst of biblical references or any direct mention of Christ. Asked why he did not write about such things as the future establishment of God’s kingdom on earth, Coornhert answered: ‘Because I have a greater desire to learn how to live well, than to learn how to know much.’ This is the first English translation of this important work. It will enhance our insight into the ethical outlook of this prominent freethinker and controversialist of the early Dutch Republic. Also available in E-book: ISBN 9789087045586.

The book begins with an outline of a new socio-political model for the development and decline of Greek science, followed by eleven chapters that cover the main disciplines: * the science which the Greeks saw as fundamental - mathematics * astronomy * astrology and geography * mechanics * optics and pneumatics * the non-mathematical sciences of alchemy, biology, medicine and 'psychology'. Each chapter contains an accessible introduction on the origins and development of the topic in question, and all the authors are set in context with brief biographies.

The Role for Literature in Moral Philosophy

"The Heart of What Matters" shows that literature has a powerful and unique role to play in understanding life's deepest ethical problems. Anthony Cunningham provides a rigorous critique of Kantian ethics, which has enjoyed a preeminent place in moral philosophy in the United States, arguing that it does not do justice to the reality of our lives. He demonstrates how fine literature can play an important role in honing our capacity to see clearly and choose wisely as he develops a moral philosophy that engages with our intimate emotional concerns. Written in an accessible style and drawing from a provocative body of contemporary literature, this book shows how moral philosophy can reach a far wider audience than it has.In part one of this book, Cunningham sketches out the theoretical basis for a redefined conception of moral philosophy. In part two, he engages in extended analyses of novels that address significant life and character issues, specifically Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Remains of the Day, " Toni Morrison's "Beloved, " and Zora Neale Hurston's "Their Eyes Were Watching God" and "Seraph on the Suwanee." Cunningham shows exactly how works like these can inform moral philosophy. Drawing from film, history, psychology, and other social sciences in addition to literature, this book adds to the growing number of works that use literature for ethical analysis and to the growing controversy over Kantian ethics.
