Sehr guter Erhaltungszustand aller Publikation. Karl Heinz Haag (* 17. Oktober 1924 in Höchst am Main † 14. April 2011 in Wiesbaden) war ein deutscher Philosoph. Nach dem Studium der Philosophie und Theologie an der von den Jesuiten getragenen Philosophisch-Theologischen Hochschule Sankt Georgen promovierte er 1951 bei dem aus dem Exil zurückgekehrten Max Horkheimer an der Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main mit einer Arbeit über Die Seinsdialektik bei Hegel und in der scholastischen Philosophie (veröffentlicht 2012). 1956 habilitierte er sich dort mit einer Arbeit über die neuere Ontologie. In den folgenden Jahren lehrte Haag zunächst als Privatdozent und später als außerplanmäßiger Professor in den klassischen Fächern der Philosophie. Seit 1972 widmete er sich ausschließlich der philosophischen Forschung. Karl Heinz Haag lebte in Frankfurt-Höchst. (Wikipedia) Theodor W. Adorno ( born Theodor Ludwig Wiesengrund; September 11, 1903 – August 6, 1969) was a German philosopher, sociologist, and composer known for his critical theory of society. He was a leading member of the Frankfurt School of critical theory, whose work has come to be associated with thinkers such as Ernst Bloch, Walter Benjamin, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse, for whom the works of Freud, Marx, and Hegel were essential to a critique of modern society. He is widely regarded as one of the 20th century's foremost thinkers on aesthetics and philosophy, as well as one of its preeminent essayists. As a critic of both fascism and what he called the culture industry, his writings—such as Dialectic of Enlightenment (1947), Minima Moralia (1951) and Negative Dialectics (1966)—strongly influenced the European New Left. Amidst the vogue enjoyed by existentialism and positivism in early 20th-century Europe, Adorno advanced a dialectical conception of natural history that critiqued the twin temptations of ontology and empiricism through studies of Kierkegaard and Husserl. As a classically trained pianist whose sympathies with the twelve-tone technique of Arnold Schoenberg resulted in his studying composition with Alban Berg of the Second Viennese School, Adorno's commitment to avant-garde music formed the backdrop of his subsequent writings and led to his collaboration with Thomas Mann on the latter's novel Doctor Faustus, while the two men lived in California as exiles during the Second World War. Working for the newly relocated Institute for Social Research, Adorno collaborated on influential studies of authoritarianism, antisemitism and propaganda that would later serve as models for sociological studies the Institute carried out in post-war Germany. Upon his return to Frankfurt, Adorno was involved with the reconstitution of German intellectual life through debates with Karl Popper on the limitations of positivist science, critiques of Heidegger's language of authenticity, writings on German responsibility for the Holocaust, and continued interventions into matters of public policy. As a writer of polemics in the tradition of Nietzsche and Karl Kraus, Adorno delivered scathing critiques of contemporary Western culture. Adorno's posthumously published Aesthetic Theory, which he planned to dedicate to Samuel Beckett, is the culmination of a lifelong commitment to modern art which attempts to revoke the "fatal separation" of feeling and understanding long demanded by the history of philosophy and explode the privilege aesthetics accords to content over form and contemplation over immersion.

        Photo Album]: "Why Visit the New England States?"

      New England 1940 - Oblong folio. Measuring 11.5" x 15". String-tied cloth over paper boards with stamped decorations and "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 82 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.75" x 4.5" and 4.5" x 6", with captions. Very good album with some age-toning and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by three men, Charles A. Zeiler, Henry P. Pollinger, and August Lipanovich, who referred to themselves as "the three mosquitos," while traveling in New England in 1940. The album appears to have been compiled as a school assignment and is titled "Why Visit the New England States?" The album begins with pictorial postcards of the White Mountains with captions reading "scenic view of New Hampshire" and "sunset on the White Mountains." The photos and postcards are heavily captioned and detail the trip from beginning to end. One photo reads, "our trip almost ended the first day. We got stuck in the mud. Henry and Charlie pushed Augie out of the soup. The road was in Pennsylvania of course." They visited all the highlights they could think of between Pennsylvania and Maine including Plymouth Rock, Mount Washington, and "the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon." One photo reads, "Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon had nothing on the Delaware Water Gap also in the Keystone State. This picture was taken from the highway looking up the gap." They also photographed tourists throughout their travels with one candid photo reading "girl scouts at Plymouth Rock. They refused to let us take their picture so we snapped it when they were not looking. The fact that they had on shorts had nothing to do with our wanting their picture." The men visit waterfalls, hike up mountains, and visit historic sites with a photo reading, "a waterfall above Buttermilk Falls near Ithaca, New York. We all went over the lower rapids in a barrel." A photo taken in the White Mountains reads, "the top of the White Mountains was literally full of rocks. In fact the path was marked by rocks formed into a small pile. Here Henry sighs for new worlds to conquer." One photo of two of the party reads, "the boys look happy on this picture for some reason or other. In the foreground one sees the one and only worm with Sir Malcolm Lipanovich in the rear. Why has Sir Malcolm such a sly grin on the face." The final page includes business cards and tickets from throughout their trip. The album concludes with a handwritten account of their favorite attractions and a list of "things we should never do" which included such advice as "never shoot off fireworks at Old Orchard Beach, Maine," "never try to steal Plymouth Rock," and never run over a skunk with a new car."A pleasing and heavily captioned photo album detailing a trip from Pennsylvania to Maine.

        Typed Letter, Signed ("Igor Strawinsky"), dated 1 May, 1940, on Harvard letterhead, to Dickson Ash of John C. Winston Co., acknowledging receipt of the Donald E. Cooke illustrated "Firebird" published by the firm

      Cambridge, 1940. One page, typewritten, signed in black ink. 1 vols. 4to. Old folds. Fine, with original typed mailing envelope (typed name "Igor Strawinsky" above printed return address). One page, typewritten, signed in black ink. 1 vols. 4to. Stravinsky at Harvard, on the "Firebird" "Stravinsky began his stay in the United States at Harvard University, delivering six Charles Eliot Norton lectures on musical poetics during the 1939-1940 academic year" (ADNB). In this brief formal letter, Stravinsky acknowledges receipt of an edition of the Russian legend retold and illustrated by Donald E. Cooke. It was Stravinsky's 1910 score of The Firebird for the Ballets Russes that first brought him international notice. The New York Times obituary of Stravinsky, published on 6 April 1971, noted "He also was not pleased that 'The Firebird' remained his most popular composition." Uncommon document from early in Stravinsky's residence in the U.S., when he still spelt his surname with "w" in his signature and return address.

        Photo Album]: U.S. Army beginning in 1940 including Hawaii and Fiji

      Alabama, Georgia, Hawaii, Fiji 1940 - Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 15". String-tied white leather over paper boards with stamped decorations and "Photographs" stamped on the front cover. Contains 586 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1.5" and 8" x 10", some with captions. Album is very good with short tears, some detached pages, and rubbing with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an American soldier during World War II. The album begins in 1940 roughly a year before the United States officially joined the war effort. His training took place at Fort McClellan, Alabama and Fort Benning, Georgia. A small section of photos shows rows of tents and soldiers walking the grounds. Photos show the men practicing marching, standing at attention, and holding rifles. A page of ten photographs shows the Christmas celebration in 1940 at Fort McClellan with photos of long tables set out with food, decorations, and family and friends visiting the troops. The men are also seen digging trenches and fortifying them with plywood. A final section from training shows the men with a number of armored tanks.After training, the complier was sent to Hawaii in 1941 where most of the album takes place. Hawaii became central to the United States' war effort in the Pacific hosting hundreds of thousands of servicemen as they moved through on their way to and from battle. These photos show the men in their barracks as well as the sights of Hawaii including surfing, fishing, and the beautiful landscape. The people of Hawaii are also present throughout the album captured at events such as hula dancing and rodeo. The soldiers are seen posing with the hula, and numerous photos show the Hawaiian rodeo with photos of roped cattle and men on horseback. The solidiers are also shown in uniform hiking the rock faces and hills of the coast, on the beaches, in small boats, and holding birds, including a small owl and some sea fowl. 18 photo strips of the men are included showing them in group shots, candids, and portraits depicting their time on base. There are also some commercial images and postcards from the island featuring a volcano erupting, grass huts, and Malua Bridge and Tunnel. The final pages, after a break in the album, contain 79 commercial images from Fiji. It appears the soldier was shipped there from Hawaii and collected these as souvenirs. They show the native people of the island and landscape with printed captioned such as "spearing fish" and "Fijian ladies." After hearing that the Japanese had planned to use the island, US troops occupied it first and used the Fiji Islands as a staging area. Thousands of Fijians volunteered to help with the war effort by fighting and allowing the use of their land.An extensive collection of photographs detailing a soldier in Hawaii in World War II.

        The Expectant Author: author's typescript, with ink corrections, by "Sparse Grey Hackle"

      n.p., 1940. Together with a covering letter to angling collector Wendle L. "Tom" Collins. 1 vols. 13 pp., 11 x 8-1/2 inches. Old folds, slight discoloration to the covering letter, else fine. Together with a covering letter to angling collector Wendle L. "Tom" Collins. 1 vols. 13 pp., 11 x 8-1/2 inches. "Sparse" on Getting Published. A delightful essay beginning, "I am qualified to advise expectant authors for the same reason that spinsters are qualified to advise expectant mothers--objective observation is more educational that [sic] emotional participation". Miller goes on to advise the fledgling author ("Don't take seriously anything that an editor says unless he encloses a check", "…almost any fishing book will sell 1,500 copies virtually regardless of its price or merit, just by being in existence"), the advice is good, the style irrepressible. Collins had mentioned sending it to Jim Payne, for inclusion in one of the Payne Rod Company catalogues, and in his covering letter Miller is not enthusiastic: "It is just a Payne in the ass to me".

        Chambre de Hotel

      Librairie Artheme Fayard, Paris 1940 - First edition. Unopened and untrimmed. Bound in contemporary half calf and marbled paper covered boards with front wrap bound in. Modest rubbing and a trifle foxed in the text, near fine. Copy XXXIX (39) of LX (60) on velin azure de Voiron paper. Inscribed by the author using much of the half-title: "Pour un a tres chere Alice, un certain bleu ciel, anemique et sentimental, n'd-t-il pas toujours ete un saveur dans les Chambres de Hotel, de bon tou? Mais le tendre amitie que je vous porte est meilleur teint, et resiste a l'usage, et ne raint in le chaud l'humidite! Colette" Which translates to something like: "For a very dear Alice, a blue sky, anemic and sentimental, has not the flavor in Chambers Hotel been good always? But the tender friendship I have for you is in better complexion, and resists wear, and resists the moist heat! Colette". The recipient was likely Colette's old friend Alice Benard-Fleury of Toulon, with whom she corresponded during the War years. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
