TitleNewton: The Making of Genius
Author(s)Patricia Fara
PublicationNew York, Columbia University Press, 2002.
Descriptionxvi, 347p
Abstract NoteBook is not a conventional biography of the man but a cultural history of the interrelated origins of modern science, the concept of genius, and the phenomenon of fame. Beginning with the eighteenth century, when the word "scientist" had not even been coined, Fara reveals how the rise of Isaac Newton's status was inextricably linked to the development of science. His very surname has acquired brand-name-like associations with science, genius, and Britishness-Apple Computers used it for an ill-fated companion to the Mac, and Margaret Thatcher has his image in her coat of arms.

TitleAwakened ones: Phenomenology of Visionary Experiences
Author(s)Gananath Obeyesekeres
PublicationNew York, Columbia University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxx, 622p.
Abstract NoteWhile a rational consciousness grasps many truths, Gananath Obeyesekere believes an even richer knowledge is possible through a bold confrontation with the stuff of visions and dreams. Spanning both Buddhist and European forms of visionary experience, he fearlessly pursues the symbolic, nonrational depths of such phenomena, reawakening the intuitive, creative impulses that power greater understanding.
