        The Concept of Mind.

      London, N.Y., etc., Hutchinson House, (1949). Royal 8vo. Orig. red full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Minor traces of wear to extremities and minor soiling to spine. In the original, not price-clipped dust-jacket. D-j with a few small tears, no loss, and minor wear to extremities. D-j. a bit brownspotted. Endpapers and edges with a bit of brownspotting, otherwise a very good and clean copy. 334 pp.. First edition, in the uncommon dust-jacket, of Ryle's main work that set out to correct the mistake of talking about mind and matter as "terms of the same logical type", thus aiming at an alleged mistake of Descarte's dualism, which had so deeply effected Western philosophy since the 17th century."This work offers what may with reservations be described as a theory of mind. But it does not give new information about minds... The philosophical arguments which constitute this book are intended not to increase what we know about minds, but to rectify the logical geography of the knowledge which we already possess." (Introduction).When Ryle claims that he wants to correct the "logical geography of the knowledge which we already possess" (i.e. about mental powers and operations), he aims at Descarte's separation of mind and matter. He claims that this "myth" constitutes a categorical mistake that places facts belonging to the physical within a framework of categories that are essentially different to those of the mental, although they bear the same categorical names, e.g. "mental processes are causes and effects, but different causes and effects from bodily movements." (p.19).It is this mistake which underlies Western philosophy, and it is this mistake that must be corrected. Ryle does this in the present wok by relocating facts and by claiming that every concept must legitimately belong to a certain category.The workings of the mind are not distinct from the actions of the body, and we need no "ghost in the machine" to explain human qualities, -man is not a machine, and what is called "human" in man is not something different to man."The Concept of Mind" was positively welcomed at the time of its appearance, and it was considered an important contribution to philosophy of language and mind as well as to the philosophy of psychology. With this work Ryle (1900-1976) established his name as one of the most important analytical philosophers.In the work he also works out, what is called "Ryle's Regress", the classical argument against cognitivist theories of explanation

        L'Art non figuratif non objectif. Introduction de Pierre Peissi.- Exemplaire signé par l'artiste.

      P., Lydia Conti, 10 septembre 1949. - 23 x 19 cm, 131 p., 7 pochoirs originaux en couleurs h.-t., 17 planches en noir dans le texte (expérimentation du prisme). Broché, couv. impr. Parfait état. Edition originale, tirage limité à 1000 ex. num., exemplaire signé par Herbin. Ce traité fondamental de Herbin est l'une des références majeures de la peinture abstraite de cette époque. Pour Auguste Herbin (1882-1960), la couleur a son langage propre, qu'il associe d'abord à des formes simples rythmiquement organisées, avant d'établir un système de relation étroite entre la couleur et la forme qui constituera l'originalité de l'œuvre abstraite qu'il accomplit à partir de 1940 pour exprimer " une vision spirituelle de l'univers ". Il élabore un " alphabet plastique " fondé sur les couleurs pures combinées avec les figures élémentaires de la géométrie plane : cercle, carré, rectangle, triangle, losange. L'utilisation de cet alphabet est codifiée dans "l'Art non figuratif non objectif" que publie la galerie Lydia Conti. Herbin exerce une grande influence sur les jeunes artistes abstraits d'après-guerre. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Troubled Island. An Opera in three Acts by William Grant Still. Libretto by Langston Hughes.

      8vo., original; printed wrappers. A fine copy. First edition of the libretto alone. Signed by Langston Hughes. Still and Hughes began writing Troubled Island in 1936, but Hughes left the project the following year to cover the Spanish Civil War for the Baltimore Afro-American. Arvey, a pianist and writer who had never written a libretto before, completed the project in Hughes? absence. Troubled Island was completed in 1939, but Still faced problems in arranging for a production. Planned premieres in 1945 and 1948 at the New York City Opera were withdrawn, but the company presented the world premiere of Troubled Island on March 31, 1949. It was the first time that the work of an African-American composer was presented by a major American opera company. Although the leading roles of Dessalines and his wife Azelia were based on black Haitians, the opera company cast white opera stars Robert Weede and Marie Powers, who work dark make-up for the 1949 premiere. African-American bass-baritone Lawrence Winters took over the role of Dessalines from Weede for the second performance of the opera and continued in the role for the remainder of the production's run. The premiere performance was greeted with 22 curtain calls. Critical reaction to the work ranged from mixed-to-negative. Time Magazine said, ?Composer Still's music, sometimes lusciously scored, sometimes naively melodic, often had more prettiness than power. In all, Troubled Island had more of the souffle of operetta than the soup bone of opera.? John Briggs of the New York Post opined, ?one was never sure one was hearing a first-rate performance of an inferior work or a second-rate performance of a good one,? while Miles Kastendieck, writing for both the New York Journal-American and the Christian Science Monitor, said of Still?s music: ?the result is a mixture of styles signifying talent and a feel for opera but achieving little more than a suggestion of it.? Years later, Judith Still, the daughter of Still and Arvey, said that the New York critics intentionally panned Troubled Island due to racism. ?Howard Taubmann (a critic and friend of Still) came to my father and said ?Billy, because I?m your friend I think that I should tell you this - the critics have had a meeting to decide what to do about your opera. They think the colored boy has gone far enough and they have voted to pan your opera.? And that was it. In those days, critics had that kind of influence.? Following its premiere, New York City Opera staged two additional presentations, on April 1 and May 1 of 1949. To date, New York City Opera has never revived the work in full; however, a 60th-anniversary concert production of excerpts was presented by the company in March 2009 at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.The opera has not been seen widely outside these two productions until October 19, 2013 when the South Shore Opera Company of Chicago presented the opera in full with a black cast, black chorus and black conductor. The opera was held at the Paul Robeson Theatre of the South Shore Cultural Center. (Wikipedia)
