Fiction. With photographs by Rolfe Horne. CARMEN VIA is a journey into the songlines of memory and imagination, a look at the unique views of a Westerner on his heritage and what it might hold for us in this age of communication overload, conflict and environmental crisis. The landscapes of this journey release their tales of civilization, of songs of creation, of myth, of spiritual vision, and man's age-old quest through life. This book's is the fruit of many years of research. It is a novel and, in the same breath, a guidebook for the physical and metaphysical traveler, a rich, compelling invitation to explore the ribbons of stories woven into the landscapes of Italy.

Mit Nabokov in der Eisenbahn, mit Graham Greene auf der Flucht vor giftigen Spinnen und mit Chatwin auf Wanderschaft - Das »Tao des Reisens« ist die Quintessenz aus den Erlebnissen und Einsichten reisender Schriftsteller. Theroux untersucht den Inhalt von Reisegepäck, durchleuchtet das Gefühl des Fremdseins und probiert unangenehm exotische Gerichte. Dabei kommen in diesem philosophischen Handbuch auch imaginäre Reisen nicht zu kurz - denn letztlich lässt sich lesend genauso gut die Welt erkunden. Paul Therouxs Grundsätze des Reisens: 1. Verlass dein Zuhause 2. Reise alleine 3. Reise mit leichtem Gepäck 4. Nimm eine Landkarte mit 5. Reise auf dem Landweg 6. Geh zu Fuß über eine Grenze 7. Führe ein Reisetagebuch 8. Lies einen Roman, der nichts mit dem Ort zu tun hat, an dem du dich befindest 9. Wenn du schon ein Handy dabei hast, vermeide wenigstens, es zu benutzen 10. Finde einen Freund

For more than one voice

For more than one voice

toward a philosophy of vocal expression

The human voice does not deceive. The one who is speaking is inevitably revealed by the singular sound of her voice, no matter “what” she says. We take this fact for granted—for example, every time someone asks, over the telephone, “Who is speaking?” and receives as a reply the familiar utterance, “It’s me.” Starting from the given uniqueness of every voice, Cavarero rereads the history of philosophy through its peculiar evasion of this embodied uniqueness. She shows how this history—along with the fields it comprehends, such as linguistics, musicology, political theory, and studies in orality—might be grasped as the “devocalization of Logos,” as the invariable privileging of semantike over phone, mind over body. Female figures—from the Sirens to the Muses, from Echo to opera singers—provide a crucial counterhistory, one in which the embodied voice triumphs over the immaterial semantic. Reconstructing this counterhistory, Cavarero proposes a “politics of the voice” wherein the ancient bond between Logos and politics is reconfigured, and wherein what matters is not the communicative content of a given discourse, but rather who is speaking.
