Item description for Maat Revealed: Philosophy Of Justice In Ancient Egypt by Anna Mancini...

Download DescriptionCatgories: Egyptology, philosophy of law, history of religions Maat Revealed, Philosophy of Justice in Ancient Egypt Unlike ancient Rome, Egypt did not transmit any legal system to us, but rather an idea of justice our modern minds can hardly understand. In the ancient Egyptian world, almost all the texts and inscriptions speak of justice. All the texts of wisdom teach that one has to conform to Maat, an obscure and omnipresent concept that Egyptologists have translated into the expression "Goddess of Truth and Justice". Egyptian justice is so different from ours that Egyptologists and historians of religions believe they have not yet fully understood its meaning. They regret this fact because understanding Maat would be a gateway to a deeper understanding of the ancient Egyptian world. As for lawyers, they have limited themselves to the Greco-Roman sources on the philosophy of Justice and the discoveries of Egyptologists in this philosophical field remain thoroughly ignored. Thanks to her experience in ancient history of law and her ability to understand ancient symbols, the author provides Egyptology with the missing pieces that were needed to form a coherent image of Maat. Once revealed, Maat sheds a new and unexpected light on the whole of Egyptian civilization. As a bridge between traditionally separate fields of academic research, this book is a useful and groundbreaking contribution to Egyptology, the history of religions and the modern philosophy of law.

More About Anna Mancini

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Anna Mancini, francaise d'origine italienne, vit a Paris et est ecrivain, coach et conferenciere. Stimulee par sa culture familiale, elle s'interesse aux reves depuis sa petite enfance. Plus tard, alors qu'elle ecrit sa these de doctorat sur le droit des brevets d'inventions, un grand reve change sa vie. Ce reve special et tres clair lui donne la solution d'une enigme de l'ancien droit romain que de nombreux chercheurs partout dans le monde ne parviennent pas a resoudre. Contre toute attente, au lieu d'etre accueillie avec enthousiasme par le milieu universitaire, cette decouverte, dont elle ne mentionne pas l'origine onirique, lui vaut d'etre exclue de l'universite et d'etre bloquee par son directeur de these pour sa carriere de juriste. C'est ainsi qu'elle choisit alors de se consacrer entierement a la recherche et a l'experimentation sur le processus onirique. Elle a observe pendant de nombreuses annees les reves mais aussi les reveurs, et fait des experiences pour comprendre quelle est l'influence de leur environnement et de leur hygiene de vie sur le contenu de leurs reves. Pour ses recherches, elle a aussi tire parti d'anciens enseignements meconnus sur la psyche humaine qui sont parvenus jusqu'a nous a travers les vestiges d'anciens systemes juridiques. Grace a cette facon originale de travailler sur les reves et a l'aide de ses propres reves qui l'ont guidee tout au long de ses recherches, elle a pu: -mettre au point une methode novatrice et efficace d'interpretation du langage onirique; -une technique qui permet de poser des questions a notre subconscient et d'en obtenir des reponses quel que soit le domaine; -comprendre quelles sont les conditions favorables et les conditions defavorables a la survenance de reves creatifs; -et bien d'autres choses qui facilitent la vie eveillee et augmentent la vitalite des reveurs. Elle a cree en 1995 l'association de recherche Innovative You, basee a Paris, au sein de laquelle elle a pu experimenter avec d'autres, les techniques de travail sur les reves qu'elle a mises au point apres de longues recherches personnelles. Anna Mancini a ecrit de nombreux livres dont vous trouverez une liste sur son site internet: Elle anime des ateliers, donne des conferences et enseigne ses techniques de creativite onirique en France et a l'etranger, notamment dans les departements de recherche et d'innovation des entreprises.

Anna Mancini was born in 1958.

Reviews - What do customers think about Maat Revealed: Philosophy Of Justice In Ancient Egypt?

Excellent discourse  Mar 8, 2006
Academic in form, Mancini's book is able to strip Maat of its mystique and provide the evidence as to what it really amounted to among ancient Egyptians. At the same time she shows (for this reader at least) the profound value this concept had and how it can easily be seen as a proto-philosophic system in its own right. Well done.
