Verificar a presença do mestre de Viena em Portugal, desde o início do século até à comemoração do centenário do seu nascimento, impunha calcar os diversos caminhos que o conhecimento percorreu neste meio século. Se não tão forte na opinião pública representativa, já nas camadas intelectuais e científicas, especialmente nas congéneres da psicologia e psiquiatria, encontramos ecos de uma marca muito importante e de valor cientificamente sólido, tendo em conta o interesse dos escritos existentes certificados, aliás, pela excelente qualidade dos nossos pensadores, tantas vezes esquecidos. Neste contexto, aumentar a compreensão do fenómeno Freud, enquanto matéria de receção intelectual, científica, diagnóstica e terapêutica, é a intenção desta reflexão, conduzida com total proximidade aos textos dos nossos cientistas que, da forma mais apaixonada e competente, deram corpo a este tema neste nosso muito especial País. This study traces the history of Freud’s presence in Portugal from the start of the 20th century until the commemoration of the centenary of his birth half a century later. While his presence was not strongly felt amongst the general public, writings of the period suggest that he had some influence on intellectual and scientific circles of the day (particularly in psychology and psychiatry). In this context, this work sheds light on the intellectual, scientific, diagnostic and therapeutic reception of Freud in Portugal, drawing upon relevant texts by respected Portuguese scientists.

“A romance and an adventure, a rumination on royalty and religion in 18th-century Portugal and a bitterly ironic comment on the uses of power.” —The New York Times Portugal, 1711. The Portuguese king promises the greedy prelates of the Church an expansive new convent, should they intercede with God to give him an heir. A lonely priest works in maniacal solitude on his Passarola, a heretical flying machine he hopes will allow him to soar far from the madness surrounding him. A young couple, brought together by chance, live out a sweet, if tormented, romance. Meanwhile, amid the fires and horrors of the Inquisition, angry crowds and abused peasants rejoice in spectacles of cruelty, from bullfighting to auto-da-fe; disgraced priests openly flout God’s laws; and chaos reigns over a society on the brink of disaster. Weaving together multiple storylines to present both breathtaking fiction and incisive commentary, renowned Portuguese writer and winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Literature, José Saramago spins an epic and captivating yarn, equal parts historical fiction, political satire, religious criticism, and whimsical romance. Hailed by USA Today as “an unexpected gem,” Baltasar and Blimunda is a captivating literary tour de force, full of magic and adventure, exquisite historical detail, and the power of both human folly and human will.

1941. Klaus Felsen, forced out of his Berlin factory into the SS, arrives in a luminous Lisbon, where Nazis and Allies, refugees and entrepreneurs, dance to the strains of opportunism and despair. Felsen's assignment takes him to the bleak mountains of the north where a devious and brutal battle is being fought for an element vital to Hitler's bliztkrieg. There he meets the man who plants the first seed of greed and revenge that will grow into a thick vine in the landscape of post-war Portugal. Late 1990s. Investigating the murder of a young girl with a disturbing sexual past, Inspector Ze Coelho overturns the dark soil of history and unearths old bones from Portugal's fascist past. This small death in Lisbon is horrific compensation for an even older crime, and Coelho's stubborn pursuit of its truth reveals a tragedy that unites past and present. Robert Wilson's combination of intelligence, suspense, vivid characters, and mesmerizing storytelling richly deserves the international acclaim his novel has received.

The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon, an international bestseller, is an extraordinary novel that transports listeners into the universe of Jewish Kabbalah during the Lisbon massacre of April 1506. Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal were dragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many of these New Christians persevered in their Jewish prayers and rituals in secret and at great risk; the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, a mystical sect of Jews, continued as well. One such secret Jew was Berekiah Zarco, an intelligent young manuscript illuminator. Inflamed by love and revenge, he searches, in the crucible of the raging pogrom, for the killer of his beloved uncle Abraham, a renowned kabbalist and manuscript illuminator, discovered murdered in a hidden synagogue along with a young girl in dishabille. Risking his life in streets seething with mayhem, Berekiah tracks down answers among Christians, New Christians, Jews, and the fellow kabbalists of his uncle, whose secret language and codes by turns light and obscure the way to the truth he seeks. A marvelous story, a challenging mystery, and a telling tale of the evils of intolerance, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon both compels and entertains.

O quarto apogeu da História de Portugal já começou.Está escrito na história e no Zodíaco: Portugal vai voltar a estar no centro do mundo. O Euro de Eder ou a Eurovisão de Salvador foram apenas os primeiros sinais.No dia 13 de Maio de 2017 o Papa Francisco canonizava em Fátima os pastorinhos Francisco e Jacinta. A milhares de quilómetros dali, na Ucrânia, outros dois irmãos (um “Salvador” e a sua irmã) subiam vitoriosos ao palco do Festival Eurovisão da Canção... Simples coincidência? João Medeiros garante que não. O astrólogo tem lido, no Zodíaco, nos mitos e nos ciclos do nosso país, evidências reveladoras de que estamos a viver uma fase única e potencialmente gloriosa: o início do Quarto Apogeu da História de Portugal.João Medeiros, autor de A Carta, apresenta agora uma obra sobre o destino coletivo da nação: O Zodíaco de Portugal. Recorda mitos como o sebastianismo, os Templários ou o Quinto Império e relaciona-os com o presente; analisa os nossos ciclos históricos, desde a fundação à república.E conclui: Portugal, e os portugueses, podem desempenhar um papel absolutamente fulcral no futuro da humanidade, que atravessa um momento crítico. Voltaremos a ser o centro do mundo, mas agora a nível espiritual, científico e cultural. É esse o nosso desígnio, que cumpriremos se para tal tivermos visão, coragem e iniciativa.

Este livro resulta de um percurso de investigação terminado em Outubro de 2003 no âmbito de uma dissertação de mestrado em Relações Interculturais, na Universidade Aberta, orientado pela Professora Doutora Natália Ramos. Pretendeu efectuar um diagnóstico da situação sociodemográfica da população imigrante ucraniana – residente em Portugal - que recorre aos serviços de saúde portugueses; clarificar e relacionar o processo de aculturação com a sociedade de acolhimento em que se encontram; detectar as principais solicitações e dificuldades deste grupo de imigrantes nessa fase de aculturação; e compreender alguns dos mecanismos que interferem no estabelecimento da relação imigrante ucraniano e profissional de saúde. Com o decorrer do trabalho de campo, com as dificuldades sentidas e as soluções encontradas, a nossa pesquisa apropriou-se de características que de algum modo se enquadram no tipo de estudo etnográfico, “field research” ou método etnográfico. Foram constituídas duas amostras, uma de Imigrantes Ucranianos formada por cento e dois indivíduos, aos quais foi aplicado um questionário, outra de Profissionais de Saúde formada por oitenta e quatro indivíduos, submetidos também a um inquérito por questionário. Os resultados obtidos permitem-nos pronunciar acerca da questão de investigação inicial: Imigrantes ucranianos e cuidados de saúde em Portugal: Qual a situação? Que relação?”A construção de um cuidado de saúde culturalmente competente passa pela capacidade do profissional de saúde analisar a cultura do outro, mas também analisar essa cultura enquanto processo de integração na sociedade de acolhimento, é um cuidado de saúde construído em processo.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the texts that, according to legend, Padma-Sambhava was compelled to hide during his visit to Tibet in the late 8th century. The guru hid his books in stones, lakes, and pillars because the Tibetans of that day and age were somehow unprepared for their teachings. Now, in the form of the ever-popular Tibetan Book of the Dead, these teachings are constantly being discovered and rediscovered by Western readers of many different backgrounds--a phenomenon which began in 1927 with Oxford's first edition of Dr. Evans-Wentz's landmark volume. While it is traditionally used as a mortuary text, to be read or recited in the presence of a dead or dying person, this book--which relates the whole experience of death and rebirth in three intermediate states of being--was originally understood as a guide not only for the dead but also for the living. As a contribution to the science of death and dying--not to mention the belief in life after death, or the belief in rebirth--The Tibetan Book of the Dead is unique among the sacred texts of the world, for its socio-cultural influence in this regard is without comparison. This fourth edition features a new foreword, afterword, and suggested further reading list by Donald S. Lopez, author of Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West. Lopez traces the whole history of the late Evans-Wentz's three earlier editions of this book, fully considering the work of contributors to previous editions (C. G. Jung among them), the sections that were added by Evans-Wentz along the way, the questions surrounding the book's translation, and finally the volume's profound importance in engendering both popular and academic interest in the religion and culture of Tibet. Another key theme that Lopez addresses is the changing nature of this book's audience--from the prewar theosophists to the beat poets to the hippies to contemporary exponents of the hospice movement--and what these audiences have found (or sought) in its very old pages.
