Antárctica - A Nomadic Eye
Amyr Klink (Prefácio), Marina Klink
Marina managed something different for a travel photographer in relation to dominating a time-scale that goes beyond a professional camera’s settings, and the skills required to use it. She created movements captured not at 24 frames per second, but at 360 frames per year, thousands per decade. Over consecutive years she went to places we all love and registered not only their movement, but their transformation. Eventually she discovered, among the photos she went taking, a nomadic eye with its own dimension where spontaneity and competence meet.
All the originality and brightness of one of the greatest architects of the 20th century is beautifully portrayed through the lens of photographer Leonardo Finotti. An edition containing all the details regarding Oscar Niemeyer’s architectural works that is worthy enough for all those who love his immortal work.

Maria José da Costa
One third of life
Wanderley Oliveira (medium) e Ermance Dufaux (spirit)
The emancipation of the soul bares the deepest truths about being. Leaving the body every night is the same as looking in the mirror of reality so that we don’t forget our deepest needs. The nocturnal activity that occurs outside of matter accounts for a third of life in the physical body, and is considered by us as the richest period in terms of spirituality, opportunity, and hope. What would be of man's health in the physical body without the vital energy absorbed during sleep? Undoubtedly, while the body sleeps the soul awakens.
Wanderley Oliveira (medium) e Pai João de Angola (spirit)
God is greater than any magic. In the absence of self-love lies the basis of all phenomena of negative influences. Self-protection from energy, the real interference of magic in our lives, toxic emotions and obsession, stress and energy pockets, the opening of ways, inner improvement and closed body; these are all intimately linked to the fragility caused by the absence of love for ourselves. Our protection and autonomy are built with legitimate moral force, capable of leading to well-being, growth and spiritual health, all of which, however, are based on our faith.
Seven ways to self-love
Wanderley Oliveira (medium) e Pai João de Angola (spirit)

By using didactic content and practical exercises, learners realize the importance, depth and benefits of an inner relationship of strong affection, admiration and respect for themselves. Therapists and psychic and emotional specialists conduct the approaches, making it clear that mental health and emotional balance depend on knowing how to develop an inner relationship that is rich with self-love.
Earth's spiritual future
Samuel Gomes (médium) e André Luiz (spirit).
The mechanisms of the new era are undergoing a profound change. Human life will be transformed to consolidate the evolution of the spiritual aspects that the planet will present in the future. Everything will change dramatically. Needs, perispiritual and neuropsychic structures, work, time, social characteristics, and the very resources of material nature will become much more subtle. What we call regeneration is precisely this mutation of the world’s realities that go from material prototypes to those of spiritual conditions.
The redemption of an exile
Samuel Gomes (médium) e André Luiz (spirit).
So that we can understand the occurrences that have hit Earth during this transitional period, wedraw upon the memories we have of similar experienceswe lived, thousands of centuries ago, on our planetary abode that is part of the Coal Constellation. One of the planets of the Chapel System also faced the spiritual cleansing which this orb is passing through now, purging millions of spirits who were distracted from the higher goals that were set for the improvement and moral development of that humanity.
Not everything is karma, but everything is a choice
Adriana Machado (médium) e Ezequiel (spirit).
All are free-will bearers and for this reason we are able to change our divine schedule at any time. If it were not so, we would say that due to the lack of freedom we would not have to take responsibility for our choices. And this is not true, we are totally responsible for them and, as a result, there are alternative paths. Life is a set of opportunities that will lead us to choose better ways.

The Man of Taste and the Logical Egoist – A Critical Introduction to Kant’s Aesthetics
Is there any accounting for tastes? There are matters we discuss seriously, but with minimum expectation or question of reaching an agreement. One of them is beautifulness. It approaches a paradox because we might engage in a discussion as if we were able to communicate our sense of pleasure, but we know our discussion isn't objective. We impute the agreement but we don't know why others should agree. Even so, we want others to agree with our opinion. Would man be a logical egoist? This seems to be the main question of Kant's Aesthetics. This monographic work tries to deal with Kant's theory of beautifulness step by step.
Bioethics in the Twenty-first Century. Yearnings, Fears and Reveries
William Saad Hossne, Leo Pessini, Christian de Paul de Barchifontaine
This text is written by several authors, moral friends who have been studying bioethics questions together for more than two decades. They have distinct backgrounds in terms of knowledge, scientific education and professional work. Far from these differences causing friction, along this period of time they have nurtured a harmony and synchrony in bioethical matters and the humanized care in the health system sphere and the practice of different health professions. Human and professional condition thus typifies the fundamental characteristic of bioethics: knowledge of inter-, multi- and trans-disciplinary character.
Human Condition and Self-esteem Education in Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Claudio A. Dalbosco
Jean-Jacques Rousseau is considered the founder of modern pedagogy. Paradoxical thinker, holder of a penetrating spirit and a shrewd observation ability, he meticulously researched several dimensions of human knowledge. In this book, the author tries to study problems that border both philosophy and education, with the Second Discourse and Émile by Rousseau as its principle references. The starting point is the existence of the deep overlap between educational theory and philosophical anthropology. Allowing himself to be inspired by current interpretations of Rousseau's thought – by Frederick Neuhouser and Axel Honneth – the author defends the idea that the founder of the modern theory of acknowledgement is Rousseau, not Hegel.
The Art of Helping – Fundamental Attitudes in Pastoral Counselling
Alexandre Awi Mello
The complexity of the modern world upsets us when it is time to establish a relationship of effective help. Personal monitoring — better known as counselling — is defined as "the art of helping others to help themselves". When this relationship of help is provided by pastoral agents and integrates the fields of faith and religious experience, uniting spiritual and psychological resources, it is designated the term "Spiritual Monitoring". This book gathers the wisdom of a great master of Spiritual Monitoring, Father Joseph Kentenich, and confirms it in light of the established experience of Carl Rogers.
The Praxis-like Social Character of Theology. Theological Epistemology Fundamental Topics
Francisco de Aquino Júnior
Taking the theological method developed and partially delineated by the Vatican Council II as starting point, this book approaches three fundamental epistemological presuppositions of theological action: 1. the subject of theology; 2. the praxis-like character of theology; 3. the social dimension and place of theology, as well as its connection with social sciences. This work insists on the fundamentally "praxis-like" character of theology. After all, theology is a theory of salvation. As such, it is inserted into the process of its historical accomplishment and also interferes with the historical processes.

AT THE BASE OF THE LIGHTHOUSE THERE IS NO LIGHT culture, education and freedom
Mauro Maldonato | Danilo Santos de Miranda
This book examines subjects such as politics, culture, education, ethics, freedom, and alterity, questioning the present in regard to: the new roles of history, the citizen, and the democratic state; the relations between rationality, morality, and emotions; the banalization of education confronted with the excesses of the information society; the function of intuition in the construction of scientific thought; human conscience, the unconscious, and the processes of creation; and the future and the risks for freedom.

A rabbit dreamed deeply. He dreamed a lot about an entire world, he even dreamed about things that were not yet understood. He dreamed until the doubt arose: was he the one who dreamed about other worlds or was it the other worlds that dreamed about him? This story reminds us of the wisdom of Chinese philosopher Chuang-Tsu, who, in the fourth century BC, imagined a man who dreams that he is a butterfly, and when he wakes up he no longer knows whether he’s a man who dreams about being a butterfly or a butterfly who dreams about being a man. A delicate and philosophical work for readers of all ages. In addition to the pleasure of the first reading, the illustrations by Anabella Lopez (winner of Jabuti 2015) sharpen the reader's perception for other readings that arise from the intersection between text and image.

THE ISSUE OF HOUSING IN THE OUTSKIRTS OF AMAZONIAN CITIES
Joana Valente Santana / Anna Carolina Gomes Holanda / Aldebaran do Socorro Farias de Moura

STILL: ON JOURNEY
Age de Carvalho
The poems in Still: on Journey confirm the aesthetic and existential restlessness of the author’s previous works, this time focusing on several issues related to travelling (into the body, the family, places, and essentially through the passage to death). Manuel da Costa Pinto states that Age’s travels, a paraense settled in Europe, reach larger dimensions: “A double exile – geographical and poetic – distinguishes this writer’s trajectory as one which dwells on the fringes of Brazil’s main literary currents, thus bringing fresh energy into Brazilian poetry”.
Path to Marahu
This book probably contains the author’s finest poems. In the preface, critic Davi Arrigucci Jr. states that “it seems that Max had been constantly tuning his words in a personal direction towards an intimate investigation: an ascetically cut language in its rare condensation as to give meaning to the world’s inward conundrums, especially those which arise from feelings of love in its playful and grave knots, thus resulting in an unexpected transcendence, which almost reaches the ineffable silence”. Path to Marahu is part of the complete works of Max Martins, a collection organized by Age de Carvalho.
ENCHANTMENT OF WORDS
João de Jesus Paes Loureiro
Some of the themes conveyed in other works by Paes Loureiro, such as Amazonian man, myths, nature, and religion, reappear in this book, in which the poet is in search of senses and meanings for his verse. The focus of both his theoretical and artistic writing, the enchanted words in this volume aim to be the language which, as a metaphor of the real world, veil and unveil it. In this poetic dimension, Enchantment of Words is the existence and the image in the verses that cast and uncast the spell carried by words.

Is nature challenging the man or it is the man who is challenging nature? Is there only pain or, on the contrary, is there hope in these endless narratives that won’t stop sprouting?

Mariana Daiha Vidal
By changing her career as a lawyer for the world of gastronomy, Mariana Daiha Vidal confirmed what she had been suspecting for some time: cooking for her was not a matter of choice, it was a calling. However due to her former job, the author felt the need to write, something she solved by creating a blog where she combined her two greatest pleasures: writing and cooking. This was the beginning of the path that, facilitated by her passion for the city, led her to write Savoring Rio. Thus, through 35 recipes richly illustrated with Isabel Becker's photos, the author compiles her memoirs inspired by dishes that left an imprint on her life. From restaurants, family or friendsthe recipes are followed to the letter (not always, however). In rebuilding her memories, Mariana often lends her own interpretation which further enriches this delightful walk through Rio de Janeiro. Because Rio de Janeiro is a city of foreigners who become "local", the book is bilingual (Portuguese and English) so that the largest number of readers can have their stories or relive sensations when savoring this city of many flavors. Version in English included.

What Freud said about women
José Artur Molina

Coffee with design: the art of drinking coffee
Miriam Gurgel, Eliana Relvas
Even with the changing of circumstances, interests, and target audience, coffee continues to cast its fascination. Coffee houses were once privileged places, where intellectuals met and discussed the politics of the nation. There is no doubt the architecture and design of these environments, merged with their customers’ habits, always were and continue to be the basic magic ingredients. Cafés are places where people interact, talk, exchange information and discuss ideas. They are also places of socialization and culture and – why not? – a work environment offering Wi-Fi connection and becoming a real office. Bringing together these different aspects of today’s life means giving the customer a true aesthetic trip, full of flavor. Published by Senac São Paulo, Coffee with design: the art of drinking coffee invites to its universe not only coffee lovers – as the book has some recipes and tips on classic and exotic harmonies that can be experienced with the drink –, but also all lovers of art, architecture, design, and new technologies.

Miriam Gurgel, José Marcio Fernandez Cunha

With photos of significant bars and pubs from Germany, Australia, Belgium, France, England, Ireland, the Czech Republic and Brazil, this book deals with the history and production of beer and presents design aspects of these successful local establishments, such as ergonomics, functionality, color schemes, environment, climate and visual appeal, without missing the importance of service and the quality of beer.

Walt Disney: from Marceline to the world
In order to understand Disney’s legacy, the author Claudemir Oliveira has studied the trajectory of this creative pioneer: his family background, where he lived, his career choices, and the philosophy in his creative work and projects. Therefore, the author spent more than two decades on researching, interviewing relatives, fans and experts, and traveling by train –like Disney had traveled– to all the cities where the genius had lived. As a persistent entrepreneur, Walt Disney always invested in the quality of his work, which at first lowered his profit margins but assured better results. Such care earned him more credibility in business. He never abandoned the belief that the higher the learning and dedication, the better the results. Today Disney’s brand is perceived as a point of reference in quality management, both by employees and by the public.
