Die Selbstbetrachtungen des römischen Kaisers Marc Aurel zählen zu den Monumenten der Weltliteratur. Neben den Briefen Senecas und den ethischen Handreichungen Epiktets sind sie zudem eines der schönsten und wertvollsten Zeugnisse stoischer Philosophie. Völlig missverstanden als Lehre der Gefühllosigkeit, offenbart die Stoa aus diesen literarischen Miniaturen ihr wahres Wesen: Marc Aurel führt den Leser durch die Hallen einer unvergleichlichen Schule der Lebensweisheit, höherer menschlicher Bildung und geistiger Kultur. Einziges Hauptfach ist hier die Humanität, Lehrmeister aber ist der Kaiser selbst, welcher freigiebigst an den Früchten seiner Lebensstudien teilhaben lässt. Wer auch immer nach Veredelung seines Selbst strebt, wird diese Kleinodien der antiken Philosophie mit reichstem Gewinn lesen.

This book, first published in 1932, was written by a Western expert on Korea, and was the first to thoroughly investigate and document the old religious practices of Korea. No book like this could be written again from original sources, for all of the data has passed away, and archival records are not necessarily complete. It is a key text in the study of Korean religion.

Myth and reality collide on an Ithaca campus “in a comic fantasy of wonderful energy, invention, and generosity of spirit” (Alison Lurie). Stephen Titus George is a young writer-in-residence at Cornell University in upstate New York. An imaginative bestselling author in search of a new story, he’s seeing his life as a modern-day fairy tale, and himself as a would-be knight looking to woo a lovely maiden—or two: the bewitching Calliope and his guiding light, Aurora Borealis Smith. However, his happy ending might not be up to him. There’s another writer who has a greater influence on campus. Unseen, yet twice as formidable, Mr. Sunshine is an eternal semi-retired deity who’s been fashioning his own narrative for centuries. He has all his characters in place—dragons, sprites, gnomes, and villains. And now, finally, his hero. As Mr. Sunshine’s world comes to fabulous and violent life, can Stephen decide his own fate if it’s already being plotted by a god? An epic of life and death, good and evil, love and sorcery, Fool on the Hill lands Matt Ruff happily on the shelf between Tom Robbins and J. R. R. Tolkien for every lover of the “funky and fantastical” (New York magazine).
