Fusing speculative realism, analytical and linguistic philosophy this book theorises the fundamental impact the experience of reading has on us. In reading, language provides us with a world and meaning becomes perceptible. We can connect with another subjectivity, another place, another time. At its most extreme, reading changes our understanding of the world around us. Metanoia- meaning literally a change of mind or a conversion-refers to this kind of new way of seeing. To see the world in a new light is to accept that our thinking has been irrevocably transformed. How is that possible? And is it merely an intellectual process without any impact on the world outside our brains? Innovatively tackling these questions, this book mobilizes discussions from linguistics, literary theory, philosophy of language, and cognitive science. It re-articulates linguistic consciousness by underlining the poetic, creative moment of language and sheds light on the ability of language to transform not only our thinking but the world around us as well.

Western culture is in a moment when wholly new kinds of personal transformations are possible, but authentic transformation requires both personal testimony and public recognition. In this book, Adam Ellwanger takes a distinctly rhetorical approach to analyzing how the personal and the public relate to an individual’s transformation and develops a new vocabulary that enables a critical assessment of the concept of authenticity. The concept of metanoia is central to this project. Charting the history of metanoia from its original use in the classical tradition to its adoption by early Christians as a term for religious conversion, Ellwanger shows that metanoia involves a change within a person that results in a truer version of him- or herself—a change in character or ethos. He then applies this theory to our contemporary moment, finding that metanoia provides unique insight into modern forms of self-transformation. Drawing on ancient and medieval sources, including Thucydides, Plato, Paul the Apostle, and Augustine, as well as contemporary discourses of self-transformation, such as the public testimonies of Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal, Ellwanger elucidates the role of language in signifying and authenticating identity. Timely and original, Ellwanger’s study formulates a transhistorical theory of personal transformation that will be of interest to scholars working in social theory, philosophy, rhetoric, and the history of Christianity.

This book is the sequel to the book entitled Parris Electoral Conjectures and Governance in Guyana. Accordingly, the book's best impact may well be most easily experienced if it is read after one has perused its immediate predecessor. Nevertheless, the book is quite capable of standing on its own as a rewarding exercise in mental titillation. Anyone who may be interested in the issues related to governance of a relatively newly independent country, whose demography has derived from the mixing of ethnicities, should find the book interesting. The author's tactic of presenting conjectures, and then following his nose in the sense of being prepared to go mentally towards destinations that logic suggests, yields interesting conundrums. The mix of suggested resolutions of problems and abandonment of paradoxes posing as problems is a stimulating concoction.

This is a collection of poems, texts, and short stories Metanoia Metanoia: (n.) The journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life. The process of experiencing a “breakdown”, and the subsequent positive psychological re-building and healing. A transformative change of heart; a spiritual conversion. Language helped our species dominate planet Earth. The cognitive revolution reshaped and wired our brains to stories. That is why we write. That is why we use alphabets and sounds and rhythms. That is why we master new techniques of storytelling, and that is why we create fiction and imaginary characters and give them our truth.

Metanoia's Revelation is the author's personal journey of discovery and transformation through poetry, marking various events and stages in her life. This is a testament of obstacle, loss, survival, hope, renewal, and change. Above all, this book is a deeply embedded reminder that life in itself is a constant mystery. This collection of poetry embodies evident shifts in style, form, and expression, bringing the reader through the growth and metamorphosis of the author as a person as well as a writer. The design of her poetry is often noted as an art unto itself. Through the trinity of the physical, spiritual, and intellectual components of human nature, the author strives to reach into the heart of those elements and tantalize the senses through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic blankets of metaphor. The author revels in evoking and capturing the reader to find themselves within her work as if written directly to or for the individual and speaking from the marrow of their own life experiences.

In explaining why the major arcane of the Marseille Tarot emerged in Milan, Italy Russell Sturgess discovered a link with the primitive teachings of Christianity. Essentially ' portable stain glass windows for a church made without hands' these images held a long forgotten formula for finding inner stillness and peace, also called Christ consciousness. Russell puts forward a strong argument that heretical Christians (Cathars) were supported by the Visconti in the formation of what would later become a part of the tarot.

The good news of how God reconciled the world to Himself in Jesus Christ has always been radically and fundamentally different from the world's way of thinking. In fact, measured by human standards of logic, it is pure foolishness. I mean, how wise is it to give abundant life to those who deserve death? How wise is it to forgive, even before a person realises how wrong they have been ... even before forgiveness is sought ... to love those who are at enmity against you? It is in the light of this radical declaration of the gospel that questions are stirred. I love questions. Good questions are worth infinitely more than the best answers to worthless questions. Mary-Anne and I travel extensively, conversing with people about this beautiful gospel and we are constantly asked questions. Some questions are asked with predictable regularity - no matter what topic we speak on or what location we find ourselves in, these questions keep popping up. This booklet is inspired by one of those questions and the joy we witnessed in discovering the answers together. The question is: How do we understand 'repentance' in the light of this radical gospel.

Metanoia Repentance A Major Theme of the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew describes the beginning of Jesus’s ministry with the summary words, “μετανοεῖτε (repent/turn), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (3:2; 4:17). Why does Matthew use this command, μετανοεῖτε, at the beginning of his ministry, and how does it relate to the rest of the Gospel? What do μετανοέω and μετάνοια mean? Scholars have stated that μετανοέω in 4:17 has critical value for understanding Matthew because the verse functions as a summary statement (or key phrase) of Jesus’s public ministry and teaching. This book argues the thematic significance of μετάνοια (turning/repentance) in the Gospel of Matthew. The lexical idea of μετανοέω and μετάνοια involves a turning of mind (or heart, will, thinking) and behavior, and so in turn of one’s whole being and life. This opening commandment of turning (μετανοέω), especially the concept, the essence, and the contents is fully revealed throughout the body of Matthew in various ways. Discipleship, the language of righteousness, doing the will of God, changing one’s heart and mind, the Great Commission, and Matthean soteriological theme convey the essence of μετάνοια and the contents of the fruit worthy of μετάνοια(3:2, 8; 4:17). The five major teaching blocks (5–7; 10; 13; 18; 23–25) teach the theme and the content of μετάνοια.

Ten years ago, Hollywood filmmaker Betsy Chasse co-created a movie on science and mysticism (subjects she knew nothing about), and was forevermore plucked from the oblivion of Valley Girl "shoe consciousness." The movie, "What the Bleep Do We Know ?," changed her life and the life of millions as it went on to make spiritual cinema history. Her latest creation, a "little book of essays" called Metanoia: a transformational change of heart, reveals a much wiser and infinitely more humble woman than the post "Bleep" successful thirty-something who hit the New Age conference circuits and radio shows back in 2005. "After the movie was released, people were coming to me for advice about how to make their lives as perfect as mine," Chasse recalls. "I had it all. I knew everything. All you had to do was ask me " Enter life, stage left. Metanoia: a transformational change of heart is, above all, a book about getting real. The nineteen short essays poetically and ruthlessly reveal a woman in the aftermath of public and domestic success; a woman in the process of being humbled by life; a woman who yearns for vulnerability and authenticity even as she rails against the need for facing the limiting self-concepts she holds inside that keep her from embracing-and loving-her true self. An "every woman" journey that every woman who has lived and loved and lost it all ... and then yearned for something greater and deeper to blossom within her can relate to. Delicate, surprising, potent and raw, each essay is accompanied by relevant quotes from sources as diverse as Victor Hugo, Rumi and Lucille Ball.

Joe, a bright young American, fails to confront the reality of separation from his English scientist wife. It's three years since she deserted him, with no explanation then or since. His life's in a tailspin. As unexpectedly as she left, she returns center stage in his life, the pregnant concubine of a wealthy ex-terrorist, the target of assassins, and at the center of a spectacular demonstration of her consort's suspicious powers. Joe's struggle to unravel the mysteries surrounding his wife ensnares him in a world of suffering and violence as the unwitting ally of her persecutors. Joe is mentally unready and spiritually unsuited for what lies in wait for him. He cannot accept the evidence of his senses. His mind unglues as he hunts for a rational explanation of what is happening to him. His dream of winning his wife back disintegrates before his eyes, painfully demolished by an unborn baby that he wishes had never been conceived, a baby whose life his wife and her consort value above his, a baby whose fate hangs in the balance along with the world as we know it.
