The author offers a look at depression in which he draws on his own battle with the illness and interviews with fellow sufferers, researchers, doctors, and others to assess the complexities of the disease, its causes and symptoms, and available therapies. This book examines depression in personal, cultural, and scientific terms. He confronts the challenge of defining the illness and describes the vast range of available medications, the efficacy of alternative treatments, and the impact the malady has on various demographic populations, around the world and throughout history. He also explores the thorny patch of moral and ethical questions posed by emerging biological explanations for mental illness. He takes readers on a journey into the most pervasive of family secrets and contributes to our understanding not only of mental illness but also of the human condition.

Demonen van de middag is een ontroerend, persoonlijk, openhartig maar ook zeer informatief boek over depressie, dat de status van standaardwerk verwierf en dat het dus alleszins verdient om weer leverbaar te zijn. Andrew Solomon beschrijft niet alleen op prachtige wijze zijn eigen depressie, hij overstijgt het individuele perspectief door ook over het lot van anderen te schrijven de ervaringen van mensen in andere tijden en culturen. Solomon laat zien hoe moeilijk het is om depressie te definiëren. De verschillende soorten medicatie komen aan bod, evenals de therapeutische behandelmethoden en de effecten die de ziekte op een mensenleven kan hebben. Een belangrijk en adembenemend boek.

The noonday devil is the demon of acedia, the vice also known as sloth. The word “sloth”, however, can be misleading, for acedia is not laziness; in fact it can manifest as busyness or activism. Rather, acedia is a gloomy combination of weariness, sadness, and a lack of purposefulness. It robs a person of his capacity for joy and leaves him feeling empty, or void of meaning Abbot Nault says that acedia is the most oppressive of demons. Although its name harkens back to antiquity and the Middle Ages, and seems to have been largely forgotten, acedia is experienced by countless modern people who describe their condition as depression, melancholy, burn-out, or even mid-life crisis. He begins his study of acedia by tracing the wisdom of the Church on the subject from the Desert Fathers to Saint Thomas Aquinas. He shows how acedia afflicts persons in all states of life— priests, religious, and married or single laymen. He details not only the symptoms and effects of acedia, but also remedies for it.

In De emigranten volgt meesterverteller W.G. Sebald de levens van vier (half)joden die Duitsland verlieten om zich te vestigen in Zwitserland, Frankrijk, Engeland en de verre sprookjessteden New York en Jeruzalem. Sebald, zelf een Duitse emigrant die zich op jonge leeftijd in Engeland vestigde, blikt met de ogen van zijn helden op zijn vaderland terug. In de levensloop van de vier ballingen klinkt de fantoompijn van de herinnering door. 'Zo keren ze dus terug, de doden. Soms na meer dan zeven decennia komen ze uit het ijs en liggen daar aan de rand van de morene, een hoopje geslepen botten en een paar schoenen met spijkers.' Met trefzekere en fijngevoelige pen schildert Sebald - in een origenele literaire vorm, die misschien nog het best te omschrijven valt als documentaire fictie - een onvergetelijk portret van vergeten en verdwenen mensen.

How did Thomas Merton become Thomas Merton? Starting out from any one of his earlier major life moments--wealthy orphan boy, big man on campus, fervent Roman Catholic convert, new and obedient monk--we find ourselves asking how by his life's end he had grown from who he was then into a transcultural and transreligious spiritual teacher read by millions. This book takes another such starting point: his attempt in the mid-1950s to move from his abbey of Gethsemani, in Kentucky--a place that had become, in his view, noisy beyond bearing--to an Italian monastery, Camaldoli, which he idealized as a place of monastic peace. The ultimate irony: Camaldoli at that time, bucolic and peaceful outwardly, was inwardly riven by a pre-Vatican II culture war; whereas Gethsemani, which he tried so hard to leave, became, when he was given his hermitage there in 1965, his place to recover Eden. In walking with Merton on this journey, and reading the letters he wrote and received at the time, we find ourselves asking, as he did, with so much energy and honesty, the deep questions that we may well need to answer in our own lives.
