The Mortals of the Megapolis – FREE EBOOK

This is the first EBook of a series that we are going to gradually publish under the name “Mortals of the Megapolis”

The idea came in one of those surreal conversations we have too often with Catherine. Talking through internet, the gap of distance doesn’t help to cover the gap of age and sometimes one of us (usually it is me) is left behind talking about something past. And this conversation had a taste from the past. We were talking about a “game”.

You must know the “game”; we have all played it. You see somebody and you start imagining from conversations to personal details. “He is definitely a banker” or “She is a teacher in a kindergarten.” And then it was an internet page I liked, this is where the ‘I was left behind in another conversation’ came. There is an internet site I had seen and I really liked it. Photos of random people in the streets of a metropolis and a few words from them under the photo. I thought it was fantastic.

Then the only thing left was to combine the two …conversations and create the “Mortals of the Megapolis”.

This is the first book of a hopefully series of books with the mortals who live around us and talk to our imagination. In the meantime new travellers have joined Catherine and me with their imagination in our Megapolis and in the near future you will have the chance to meet them.

For now, please do download the EBook HERE and enjoy our first …mortals!

Prof. Emanuel L. Paparella’s: Aesthetic Theories of Great Western Philosophers

aesthetic_theoriesProfessor Emanuel L. Paparella – familiar to all the readers of Ovi magazine – is the writer of the book: “Aesthetic Theories of Great Western Philosophers” Ηιs second book with Ovi. In twenty chapters, twenty philosophers study the evolution of art and aesthetics.

Borrowing the author’s words from his prologue: “The students complained that they found the reading hard going. Some of them had never taken a philosophy course before. In an attempt to alleviate their difficulties I decided to attempt a simplification, a sort of Ockam’s razor of several entries and definition of aesthetic theories as outlined in Wertenberg’s anthology.

“I simply eliminated the reading themselves, although I left quite a few quotes from each philosopher or artist and focused rather on simplifying and explaining their theoretical thinking and definitions of Art. In other words, while the inspiration for those notes came directly from the text itself, my function as a commentator was that of simplifying, as best I could, the complex aesthetic theories of the great philosophers of Western Civilization and thus make the students more aware of the rich aesthetic tradition of Western Civilization as expressed philosophically.”

And at least for me he succeeded to his aim 110% and if you think that I exaggerate I challenge you to read the book.

Professor Ernesto Paolozzi’s “Benedetto Croce: The Philosophy of History and the Duty of Freedom”

CroceOvi presents Professor Ernesto Paolozzi’s new book titled: “Benedetto Croce: The Philosophy of History and the Duty of Freedom.”

Benedetto Croce was an Italian idealist philosopher, and occasionally also politician. He wrote on numerous topics, including philosophy, history, methodology of history writing and aesthetics. He was a prominent liberal, although he opposed laissez-faire free trade, and had considerable influence on other prominent Italian intellectuals including both Marxist Antonio Gramsci and fascist Giovanni Gentile. That according to Wikipedia.

But Benedetto Croce was much much more and this is the much more that is what Professor Ernesto Paolozzi, Professor of History and Philosophy at the Suor Orsola Benincasa University, Naples and member of the Italian Commitee for historical studies, introducing us in his book.

Note that the superb translation from Italian is from Dr. Massimo Verdicchio; Professor of Italian at the University of Alberta, Canada and the introduction to the book is written by Professor Emanuel L. Paparella, director of the summer study abroad program for University of Central Florida and Broward College.
