Edgar Allan Poe Eureka and Scientific Imagination

Explores the science and creative process behind Poe’s cosmological treatise. In 1848, almost a year and a half before Edgar Allan Poe died at the age of forty, his book Eureka was published. In it, he weaved together his scientific speculations about the universe with his own literary theory, theology, and philosophy of science. Although Poe himself considered it to be his magnum opus, Eureka has mostly been overlooked or underappreciated, sometimes even to the point of being thought an elaborate hoax. Remarkably, however, in Eureka Poe anticipated at least nine major theories and developments in twentieth-century science, including the Big Bang theory, multiverse theory, and the solution to Olbers’ paradox. In this book—the first devoted specifically to Poe’s science side—David N. Stamos, a philosopher of science, combines scientific background with analysis of Poe’s life and work to highlight the creative and scientific achievements of this text. He examines Poe’s literary theory, theology, and intellectual development, and then compares Poe’s understanding of science with that of scientists and philosophers from his own time to the present. Next, Stamos pieces together and clarifies Poe’s theory of scientific imagination, which he then attempts to update and defend by providing numerous case studies of eureka moments in modern science and by seeking insights from comparative biography and psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and evolution. “Edgar Allan Poe, Eureka, and Scientific Imagination is the most comprehensive treatment of Eureka that has yet been published. It is staggeringly thorough in its analysis of Poe’s book, but it also shows how Poe’s theories of cosmogony and cosmology ramify into his fiction and poetry, especially the tales of ratiocination. Stamos takes Eureka seriously, and he does so with the empirical undergirding of vast amounts of scientific scholarship and literary criticism.” — James M. Hutchisson, author of Poe

My Journey is a true story of a young widow suddenly faced with the challenges of being alone in Cuba with forty-eight hours to leave the island with her two young sons and her husband’s casket. What began as an adventure in the US Navy turned into a life changing event, opening new doors that proved there are no chance happenings. The power of her childhood faith foundation allowed her to find comfort by visualizing the images of the stained glass windows from her hometown church. Her faith in God transformed her into being the little lost lamb in the arms of the Good Shepherd, where she found strength and courage on her journey. The silence and pain of being alone enabled her to connect to the Christ in Gethsemane. The journey changed the twenty-seven-year-old country girl into a stronger and more loving woman without breaking her spirit. Cry, laugh, celebrate, and become inspired! My Journey is not all gloom and doom; however, it is an honest glimpse into the events that lead this family into a new life. This is inspiration for anyone who has loved and lost. It offers hope and joy for all those brave enough to stand up and praise God and thank him for the challenges in life.

Ella ist vierzig Jahre alt, hat einen Ehemann, drei Kinder im Teenageralter und ein schönes Zuhause in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Eigentlich sollte sie glücklich sein, in ihrem Herzen breitet sich aber eine Leere aus, die früher von Liebe gefüllt war. Als Gutachterin für eine Literaturagentur taucht sie tief in einen Roman über den Sufi-Dichter und Mystiker Rumi und die vierzig ewigen, geheimnisvollen Regeln der Liebe ein. Trotz der Ansiedlung im 13. Jahrhundert scheint ihr der Roman immer mehr eine Spiegelung ihrer eigenen Geschichte zu sein. Zusehends distanziert von ihrem Ehemann, beginnt Ella, ihr bisheriges Leben zu hinterfragen. Sie besucht den Verfasser des Buches, Aziz Zahara, mit dem sie sich schriftlich schon rege und sehr persönlich ausgetauscht hat - und erfährt eine derart grundlegende persönliche Veränderung, wie sie es sich nie hätte ausmalen können.
