As a deadly cancer spread inside her brain, leading neuroscientist Barbara Lipska was plunged into madness—only to miraculously survive with her memories intact. In the tradition of My Stroke of Insight and Brain on Fire, this powerful memoir recounts her ordeal and explains its unforgettable lessons about the brain and mind. At the height of her career, Barbara Lipska—a leading expert on the neuroscience of mental illness—was diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to her brain. Within months, her frontal lobe, the seat of cognition, began shutting down. She exhibited dementia- and schizophrenia-like symptoms that terrified her family and coworkers. But miraculously, the immunotherapy her doctors prescribed worked, and Lipska returned to normal. With one difference: she remembered her brush with madness with exquisite clarity. Lipska draws on her extraordinary experience to explain how mental illness, brain injury, and age can distort our behavior, personality, cognition, and memory. She tells what it is like to experience these changes firsthand. And she reveals what parts of us remain, even when so much else is gone.

Clearing My Mind

Then he left, And, he didn't come home. He was shot and killed, That's what they told mom on the phone. Mom cried a lot, So, I did what dad said. I took care of her, And tried to clear her head. It's been two years.

I started my freshman year of high school at a new school in San Antonio, shortly after moving to Texas, I was excited for the new year. Everything was normal until the end of the year. Around that time, I started having memory issues and depressing thoughts. My problems quickly developed into anxiety, odd headaches, night terrors, hallucinations, and dissociative episodes. Some of which still plague me today. I had no motivation to leave my bed or do anything. How could I? I had no control over my life. But for some strange reason, I just started to write poetry. I don’t even remember writing my first one. I never had any special interest in writing and I had never written for fun until then. With this newfound ability, I flipped my lucid dreams into ominous text, and the voices in my head into little love stories. My life changed when I ran into these invisible obstacles, but I was blessed with a way to tune them out. So now I’m a sixteen year old who was struck with a talented way with words and a passion for writing, or an insane little kid who sputters pretty phrases in-between loads of gibberish. Either way, I’m having fun.

From “one of science fiction’s finest writers”: A young woman with tremendous psychic power battles to set a new course for mankind (The New York Times). The baby’s name is Mary, and her father is immortal. For thousands of years he has orchestrated a selective breeding project, attempting to create a master race capable of controlling others through thought. Most of his attempts have resulted in volatile mutations, but Mary—whom he has raised in the rough part of a Southern California town—is the closest he has come to perfection. If he doesn’t handle her carefully, this greatest experiment will be his last. As Mary comes of age, she begins to grow aware of her psychic powers. And when she learns of her father’s plans for her, she refuses to acquiesce. She challenges him to a psychic war, battling to free her people and set a new course for mankind. Multiple Nebula and Hugo award–winning author Octavia Butler’s epic and thought-provoking Patternist series has fascinated generations of readers, exploring the effects of power and what it means to be human.

This now-classic work challenges what Ryle calls philosophy's "official theory, " the Cartesian "myth" of the separation of mind and matter. Ryle's linguistic analysis remaps the conceptual geography of mind, not so much solving traditional philosophical problams as dissolving them into the mere consequences of misguided language. His plain language and essentially simple purpose put him in the tradition of Locke, Berkeley, Mill, and Russell - philisophers whose best work, like Ryle's, has become a part of our general literature.

With his blend of engineering and the fields of personal transformation, Peter Hey takes us on a deep, yet accessible journey into the inner recesses of our minds. He presents a unique model of the mind and the mechanisms that define our behavior. Based on his own personal experiences as the son of a Holocaust survivor, his sessions with his own clients and his background in computer design, he brings the concept of programs in our unconscious as the basic mechanism that determines our actions. Millions of programs operating below our everyday awareness, each of them associated with emotions that, in fact, are the actual power behind our decisions in daily life. Leading Mind explains how these programs are created from all our experiences, starting already at conception, through our time in the mother’s womb, all the way to full adulthood. It also shows how, when accessing our deep unconscious, we discover aspects in us that transcend our current physical life. Based on thousands and thousands of sessions done by practitioners around the world, with remarkably consistent results across cultures, education, social status and personal beliefs. Leading Mind shows how the current events that are impacting our civilization nowadays are the result of our emotional ignorance. It brings to light an urgent call to reform our educational curriculum to teach how our mind works and tools for personal transformation and conflict resolution. Understanding our minds brings tolerance and compassion for all. It gives us the knowledge to change our limiting behaviors. The start of real personal power to direct our lives in the direction that is our authentic individual expression.

When Liza Winthrop first lays eyes on Annie Kenyon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she knows there’s something special between them. Soon, their close friendship develops into a deep and intimate romance. Neither imagined that falling in love could be so wonderful, but as Liza and Annie’s newfound sexuality sparks conflict in both their families and at their schools, they discover it will take more than love for their relationship to succeed.

Authorship's Wake examines the aftermath of the 1960s critique of the author, epitomized by Roland Barthes's essay, “The Death of the Author.” This critique has given rise to a body of writing that confounds generic distinctions separating the literary and the theoretical. Its archive consists of texts by writers who either directly participated in this critique, as Barthes did, or whose intellectual formation took place in its immediate aftermath. These writers include some who are known primarily as theorists (Judith Butler), others known primarily as novelists (Zadie Smith, David Foster Wallace), and yet others whose texts are difficult to categorize (the autofiction of Chris Kraus, Sheila Heti, and Ben Lerner; the autotheory of Maggie Nelson). These writers share not only a central motivating question – how to move beyond the critique of the author-subject – but also a way of answering it: by writing texts that merge theoretical concerns with literary discourse. Authorship's Wake traces the responses their work offers in relation to four themes: communication, intention, agency, and labor.

A. A. Long’s study of Greek notions of mind and human selfhood is anchored in questions of universal interest. What happens to us when we die? How is the mind or soul related to the body? Are we responsible for our own happiness? Can we achieve autonomy? Long shows that Greek thinkers’ modeling of the mind gave us metaphors that we still live by.
