Hannah Arendt and the Challenge of Modernity explores the theme of human rights in the work of Hannah Arendt. Parekh argues that Arendt's contribution to this debate has been largely ignored because she does not speak in the same terms as contemporary theoreticians of human rights. Beginning by examining Arendt's critique of human rights, and the concept of "a right to have rights" with which she contrasts the traditional understanding of human rights, Parekh goes on to analyze some of the tensions and paradoxes within the modern conception of human rights that Arendt brings to light, arguing that Arendt's perspective must be understood as phenomenological and grounded in a notion of intersubjectivity that she develops in her readings of Kant and Socrates.
ORIGAMI HEART is the story of Xavier Kidd, probably the most beautiful boy ever to walk the earth. After years of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse at the hands of his trick-turning, waitress mother and her heroin junky boyfriend, Xavier learns the nature of duality and with a heart as big as heaven and filled with wanderlust, he runs away from his past - hoping to embrace a bright, yet unknown future. ORIGAMI HEART is about the fictions that we create in our own minds as an escape from the pains in our lives. It is a must read for anyone who has gone through trauma, dissociated, or simply yearns to understand the darker sides of life.
