de Anima (Social Imaginaries) (Paperback)
A reformulation as well as a criticism of earlier thinkers, Aristotle's De Anima describes soul and body as complementaries rather than polar opposites, as they stand together in a mutual relation of matter and form. Each living entity, endowed with its own animating and informing principle, realizes its proper end. The human soul, incorporating all the animate properties of the lower life forms - the nutritive, propagative, locomotive, and perceptive - has also a fifth power, the intellective. The mind, to which the fifth and highest part is devoted, is alone capable of forming ideas of abstract concepts and relations. Hence, the human mind alone remains free from union with the corporeal.
The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!
Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
