The Ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books by John Coleman Darnell +

The Ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books (Writings from the Ancient World 39) by John Coleman Darnell, Colleen Manassa Darnell
Requirements: .PDF reader, 27.4 MB
Overview: The ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books are among the most extensive religious texts from pharaonic civilization and present humanity’s oldest surviving attempts to provide a scientific map of the unseen realms beyond the visible cosmos. First attested during the middle of the second millennium BCE, the Netherworld Books decorate the walls of the New Kingdom royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The importance of these texts lies in their philosophical and theological speculations about the inner workings of the cosmos, particularly the events of the solar journey through the twelve hours of the night. These important texts describe one of the central mysteries of Egyptian religious belief, the union of the solar god Re with the underworldly god Osiris, and provide information on aspects of Egyptian theology and cosmography more thoroughly than what is presented in the more widely read Book of the Dead.

Derrida, an Egyptian by Peter Sloterdijk

Derrida, an Egyptian by Peter Sloterdijk
Requirements: .PDF reader, 552 Kb
Overview: Shortly before his death in 2004, Jacques Derrida expressed two paradoxical convictions: he was certain that he would be forgotten the very day he died, yet at the same time certain that something of his work would survive in the cultural memory. This text by Peter Sloterdijk – one of the major figures of contemporary philosophy – makes a contribution of its own to the preservation and continuation of Derrida’s unique and powerful work. In this brief but illuminating text, Sloterdijk offers a series of recontextualizations of Derrida’s work by exploring the connections between Derrida and seven major thinkers, including Hegel, Freud and Thomas Mann. The leitmotif of this exploration is the role that Egypt and the Egyptian pyramid plays in the philosophical imagination of the West, from the exodus of Moses and the Jews to the conceptualization of the pyramid as the archetype of the cumbersome objects that cannot be taken along by the spirit on its return to itself.

‘Egyptian’ is the term for all constructs that can be subjected to deconstruction – except for the pyramind, that most Egyptian of edifices, which stands in its place, unshakeable for all time, because its form is the undeconstructible remainder of a construction that is built to look as it would after its own collapse.

Ancient Egyptian Furniture. Vol I by Geoffrey Killen

Ancient Egyptian Furniture. Vol I by Geoffrey Killen
Requirements: .PDF reader, 20,2 Mb
Overview: This revised second edition examines the common forms of furniture used in ancient Egypt, so much of which has been preserved by the dry Egyptian climate and has long been admired for the quality of its design and construction. The story begins with the earliest known pieces and ends with the spectacular discoveries from the 18th dynasty represented mainly by the magnificent furniture from the tomb of Tutankhamun. The insight which Dr Killen brings in the detailed explanations of the materials, techniques and designs of the master craftsmen of ancient Egypt, gives this book a special significance. There is a catalogue of known pieces from museums around the world, classified by type – beds, stools, chairs and tables – with detailed analyses of the materials, tools and joinery. The splendid photographs and drawings illustrate each piece and technique.
