In his 1932 classic dystopian novel, Brave New World, Aldous Huxley depicted a future society in thrall to science and regulated by sophisticated methods of social control. Nearly thirty years later in Brave New World Revisited, Huxley checked the progress of his prophecies against reality and argued that many of his fictional fantasies had grown uncomfortably close to the truth. Brave New World Revisited includes Huxley's views on overpopulation, propaganda, advertising and government control, and is an urgent and powerful appeal for the defence of individualism still alarmingly relevant today.

Huxley’s classic is bookended by the original introduction by Margaret Atwood and his fascinating non-fiction work, written in 1958, in which he compares the modern-day world with the dystopian fantasy he envisioned in Brave New World. Nearly thirty years after the publication of Brave New World, Huxley checked the progress of his prophecies against reality in Brave New World Revisited and argued that many of his fictional fantasies had grown uncomfortably close to the truth. Sharing his views on issues such as overpopulation, propaganda, the art of selling and brainwashing, Huxley gives a vigorous, astute analysis of the nature of power and authority in modern society. Brave New World Revisited is an urgent and powerful appeal for the defence of individualism still alarmingly relevant today.

Lilian Aldewinkle, eine reiche Dame aus London, hat ein Schloß in Italien erworben, aus dem sie um jeden Preis einen Treffpunkt der Musen machen will. Deshalb lädt sie alle dorthin ein, die ihrer Meinung nach künstlerische Genalität besitzen: ihren ehemaligen Liebhaber Tom Cardan, den Arbeiterführer Mr. Falx oder den vom gesellschaftlichen Leben angewiderten Calamy, der aus Langeweile ein Verhältnis mit der Schriftstellerin Mary Thriplow anfängt. Aber auch Francis Chelifer kommt auf das Schloß, ein nicht unbedeutender Lyriker, der das Mittelmaß für den einzig erträglichen Zustand hält und von Mrs. Aledwinkle hartnäckiger Liebe verfolgt wird. Und so beginnt ein Reigen um Liebe, Verrat und Leidenschaft. »Parallelen der Liebe« ist ein Feuerwerk funkelnder Gedanken und Einfälle über die Liebe, das Leben und die Kunst präsentiert mit Leichtigkeit und Virtuosität. »Parallelen der Liebe« - jetzt wieder bei Piper Edition erhältlich

This carefully crafted ebook: “BRAVE NEW WORLD” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Set in London in the year AF 632 (2540 AD) this political and dystopian science fiction novel, paints a chilling picture of a consumerist society where being a misfit spells utter doom for a person. Here assisted reproductive technologies, mindless sex and orgies, and guided rules for expressing of human emotions reduce relationships to mechanical farces. Written in 1931, the novel is still relevant today and more so because, as Huxley mentioned in “Brave New World Revisited”, our real world is turning into the world of the novel much faster than we originally thought! Aldous Huxley (1894–1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher, humanist, pacifist, and satirist. He later became interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in seven different years.

Bestsellerautor Linwood Barclay ("Ohne ein Wort") ist zurück! "Lügennest" bildet den Auftakt seiner neuen "Promise Falls"-Trilogie: Drei Thriller, die sich mit den Abgründen einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt beschäftigen, deren Mitbewohner auch nicht vor Mord zurückschrecken... Für Promise Falls sieht es düster aus. In der Kleinstadt an der US-Ostküste gibt es kaum Perspektiven – und vor allem keine Jobs. Auch die Zeitung von Reporter David Harwood ist pleite, trotzdem steckt er seine Nase weiterhin in Sachen, die ihm merkwürdig vorkommen. Wie zum Beispiel in diese Geschichte mit dem Baby. Seine Cousine Marla schwört, ein Engel habe es ihr gegeben. Aber es sieht eher so aus, als hinge alles mit einem brutalen Mord am anderen Ende der Stadt zusammen. Und das ist nicht der einzige Abgrund, der sich in Promise Falls auftut. Linwood Barclay ist "ein wahrer Spannungsmeister." Stephen King

The visionary legacy of Aldous Huxley is as relevant today as ever. Huxley possessed a sober understanding of the human condition as well as an inspired vision of the human potential. This volume presents an interdisciplinary examination and appreciation of Aldous Huxley’s three visionary novels – Brave New World (1932), Ape and Essence (1948), and Island (1962) – to reveal the extent to which Huxley’s prognoses into our possible futures was prophetic. The author assesses each novel to reveal the foresights that define our current educational, social, religious, political, and economic institutions, while also exposing our conflicts within those institutions. This volume examines the educational, cultural and technological changes that have shaped our society since Huxley’s work, with special reference to the enduring legacy of educational philosopher John Dewey. It offers profound insights into the educational forces and moral foundations of our society that shape us, both inside and outside of our schools. It is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on all three of Huxley’s visionary novels and detail their relevance to our world today.
