Copenhagen, Autumn 1941. The two presiding geniuses of quantum physics, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg meet for the first time since the breakout of war. Danish physicist Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, live in Nazi-occupied Denmark; their visitor, Heisenberg, is German. Two old friends, now on opposing sides, who between them have the ability to change the course of history. But why has Heisenberg - Bohr's former protégé - come to Copenhagen? Michael Frayn's Tony award-winning play imagines the three characters re-drafting the events of 1941 in an attempt to make sense of them. A powerful exploration of the uncertainties of human memory and motivation.

“UNMASTERED: A Book on Desire, Most Difficult to Tell” runs the risk of being overlooked. With the hubbub surrounding E.L. James’s “Fifty Shades” trilogy (all three volumes topped the bestseller paperback lists in America and Britain this summer) and, more recently, Naomi Wolf’s “Vagina”, it is an unduly difficult time for a book on sexuality, feminism and pornography to stand out. Yet Katherine Angel, a Cambridge-educated academic now teaching at the University of Warwick, offers in “Unmastered” something very different from Ms Wolf and Ms James...

...We’re also conscious, thinking things. You’re reading these words and making sense of them. We have the capacity to reason abstractly and grapple with various desires and values. It is the fact that we’re conscious and rational that led us to believe in things like Higgs bosons in the first place.
But what if science is fundamentally incapable of explaining our own existence as thinking things? What if it proves impossible to fit human beings neatly into the world of subatomic particles and laws of motion that science describes? In Mind and Cosmos (Oxford University Press), the prominent philosopher Thomas Nagel’s latest book, he argues that science alone will never be able to explain a reality that includes human beings. What is needed is a new way of looking at and explaining reality; one which makes mind and value as fundamental as atoms and evolution....

In his essay on Bataille, ‘From Restricted to General Economy: A Hegelianism without Reserve,’ Derrida alludes to Bataille’s reference to Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake in his essay, ‘Hegel, Death and Sacrifice’, in which the ‘Welsh Coffin’ is illustrated as the symbol of a communal event that is performed – comically, as with the ‘wake’ in the southern United States – in the face of the tragic ‘event’ of death. As Derrida retells Bataille’s (second-hand) story, the deceased is stood up in his coffin in pride of place amongst his fellows – dressed with a top hat, cigar and suit – and who, contrary to the usual and useful expulsion of the corpse – begin to essentially ‘roast’ the one who had passed – but, is still strangely in attendance. Such a surreal performance, similar to the dark comic absurdities of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood, or Buňuel, as with The Exterminating Angel (1962) and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972), is an example of a Dionysian mortality that is shared by each member of the community
