This book investigates the psychology of family relationships, including parent-child relations, sibling relations, maternal-foetal and marital relations. The influence of prenatal mother-child attachment on intrauterine foetal movements is examined, as well as mother-infant interaction, which was studied by looking at Nicaraguan and Italian mothers and how they engage in social play, object play, and what their overall verbal behaviours were towards their infants. In addition, rather than the usual focus on dietary and physical activity aspects of child weight management, certain family relationships are highlighted, which might either enhance or hinder coping with child weight management. ...

La dialettica della libertà in Nietzsche e Dostoevskij

Vi è un profondo legame tra la “filosofia con il martello” di Friedrich Nietzsche e la produzione narrativa dello scrittore russo Fëdor Dostoevskij. Attraverso l’analisi del sottosuolo e delle critiche tanto al determinismo positivista quanto all’idealismo, in questo testo ci si concentra sulla concezione di dialettica della libertà che i due autori condividono. La loro critica radicale dei valori tradizionali poteva condurre a una deriva nichilista; entrambi, però, rifiutano questo esito e ne confutano la necessità. La libertà autentica per i due autori non è infatti l’indifferenza del libero arbitrio infinito, bensì l’oltreumana accettazione del non-senso e della soffer...

The bestselling author of Maine brings us a sparkling tale of friendship and a fascinating portrait of the first generation of women who have all the opportunities in the world, but no clear idea about what to choose. Assigned to the same dorm their first year at Smith College, Celia, Bree, Sally, and April couldn’t have less in common. Celia, a lapsed Catholic, arrives with a bottle of vodka in her suitcase; beautiful Bree pines for the fiancé she left behind in Savannah; Sally, preppy and obsessively neat, is reeling from the loss of her mother; and April, a radical, redheaded feminist wearing a “Riot: Don’t Diet” T-shirt, wants a room transfer immediately. Written with radiant style and a wicked sense of humor, Commencement follows these unlikely friends through college and the years beyond, brilliantly capturing the complicated landscape facing young women today.

La regina irriverente

"Ha forse subìto l'influenza di Aliénore, che non si mostra mai in pubblico se non impeccabile, fiera ed eretta nella persona, e quando un dolore la affligge, del corpo come dell'animo, lo cela dietro il radioso sorriso? Strano, il suo rapporto con Aliénore. L'ha temuta, criticata con asprezza, osteggiata. Nessuna donna al mondo l'ha irritato e sconcertato più di lei. Eppure, nessuna ha ammirato di più."

Alive on the Andrea Doria!

One half-century later, the catastrophic ramming of the MS Stockholm into the Italian luxury liner the SS Andrea Doria in 1956 is relived in this candid, heartrending account. Author Pierette Domenica Simpson, who, with her grandparents, survived the tragedy off the shoals of Nantucket, shares the human and technical aspects of what has become known as the greatest sea rescue in history. As only an eyewitness can do, the author presents survivors' recollections in dramatic vignettes that meticulously re-create a horrific event-one that could have been another Titanic. Both poor immigrants and wealthy travelers give their accounts of ultimate despair and infinite elation after staring at their own reflections in the black ocean that night and seeing death stare back. Equally dramatic are the revelations of new facts exposed by nautical experts from two continents facts that solve the "mystery" of who was to blame for this most improbable collision between two ships on the open seas.
