Looking behind all forms of life to the concealed abode of ultimate conflict the new philosophy overthrows previous critical theory's attempts to clarify the relations among the disparate social struggles of our time in light of a new full unification. The new eros driving the patriarchal Supermen who journey to alternative possible worlds with counterparts that time-travel to the actual world and matriarchal Anti-Supermen who affirm life in the actual world moves from consciousness to world history whose concealed logic it finally reveals.

Dr. Landrum describes the "superman syndrome" as a series of common behaviors that permit an otherwise average person to rise above the norm.

This Is An In-Depth Study Of Bernard Shaw S Concept Of The Superman, A Study Remarkable For Its Readability And Scholarly Treatment Of The Sub¬Ject Matter. Dr. Singh Is Deservedly A Well Known Author Distinguished For His Wide Reading In Indian And European Literary Traditions And Literatures, Particularly Of Modern Irish And English Literatures. He Is Not Oblivious Of Darwin, Bergson, Nietzsche Lamarck And Aurbindo, All Of Whom Have Treated This Concept In Their Own Style And Form, But Not In A Style More Pellucid Than Dr. Singh S. And It Is This Style That Makes This Book Not Only Profound But Also Exceedingly Readable By Scholars And Common Readers Alike. Shaw Was Indebted To Such Writers As Neitzsche For The Idea Of Superman. His Interest In Socialism Was A Result Of His Close Association With Sidney Webb. Such Ideas As These Have Been Lucidly Brought Out In The Pre¬Sent Book, Which Is A Storehouse Of Dispassionate And Balanced Informa¬Tion About Shaw. Those Interested In Perfecting Their Modus Criticus And Maturing Their Critical Sensibility Will Find This Book Extremely Useful.

After a series of low-paying jobs, Chico Santana, PI, is living in his tiny office on 149th Street in the Bronx. He's in an absolutely foul mood when Pablo Sanchez and his mother drop in, seeking help for one of Chico's old childhood pals----the handsome and charismatic Joey Ventura. Chico has not seen Joey since Joey disappeared from St. Mary's Home for Boys, headed for Tahiti. He ended up, instead, on the island of TSP---The Superman Project. The Superman Project peddles German philosophy, Hinduism, and American comic book mythology as a method toward self-improvement, but its members are hiding more than a few secrets. The leader of TSP is a man named Father Ravi. One of his daughters, Gabby, who is also Joey's wife, is missing. Joey was accused by the TSP leaders of killing Gabby and has fled the police. Pablo and his mother insist he is innocent. Compelled to believe in his old friend, and by the promised payment of a very valuable Superman comic, Chico investigates the competing interests in the organization, falling for a beautiful suspect and trying to look out for a friend's troubled niece in the process. A. E. Roman brings New York City and its eccentric characters to life in this second in the original and energetic Chico Santana series.

In 1938, Superman debuted, jumping off the pages of Action Comics #1. In the cultural context of the Great Depression and World War II, the U.S. would see the rise of the superhero not only in comic books but in radio programs, animated cartoons and television shows. Superman forever changed one’s concept of the hero and became permanently engrained in both American and worldwide culture. This study explores the Man of Steel’s narrative as a fresh perspective on readings of the Bible—his character is reflected in such figures as Moses, Samson and Jesus. The author argues that if we read the Bible it can be said we are reading about Superman.

 Friedrich Nietzsche regarded himself as the most musical philosopher—he played the piano, wrote his own compositions and espoused a philosophy encouraging all to dance for joy. Central to his life and his ideas were the music and personality of Richard Wagner, whom he both loved and loathed at different times of his life. Nietzsche had considerable influence on composers, many of whom employed Wagnerian sonorities to set his words and respond to his ideas. This book explores Nietzsche’s relationship with Wagner, the influence of his writings on the music of Strauss, Mahler, Delius, Scriabin, Busoni and others, his place in Thomas Mann’s critique of German Romantic music in the novel Doctor Faustus and his impact on 20th-century popular music.
