Damaris Cudworth Masham (1658-1708) was one of the very first English women to publish philosophical writings. Like all women of her period she was denied access to higher education, but she grew up accustomed to philosophical discourse as the daughter of Ralph Cudworth, the leading Cambridge Platonist. In 1685 she married Sir Francis Masham and went to live with him at Oates, Essex. For many years she was an intimate friend of John Locke; she also corresponded on philosophical topics with Leibniz. Lady Masham's two main philosophical works, A Discourse Concerning the Love of God (1696) and Occasional Thoughts in Reference to a Vertuous or Christian Life (1705) were published anonymously and caused a considerable stir. Both books have now become extremely rare, and Thoemmes Press here presents them in a single volume, prefixed by James G. Buickerood's new introduction.

If you're interested in working in movies or making music and you were not privileged to be born the son or daughter of an already established named actor, writer, or musician that can open the door for you, then this book is your guide. Should you decide to take that leap from the normal to what everyone else considers the abnormal career choice the advice in this book can not only save you months and years of getting that first background artist job, but can also save you hundreds and thousands of dollars that you do not need to spend in pursuit of the entertainment industry as a career. Consider this book a basic training manual, a no punches pulled guide to the obstacles that you are guaranteed to face while pursuing entertainment as the industry of your choice. The main focus of this book is to educate those that wish to pursue show business regardless of one's area of interest within the performing arts, whether one wants to be an actor, or writer, producer or director, songwriter or recording artist. They all have one ugly thing in common and that is the con-artist. They will promise you the world just to empty the contents of your wallet and bank account. They will prey upon your dreams so that their gain is your nightmare. Let this book be your shield for those that will use unscrupulous and unethical tactics against you. While pursuing the entertainment industry as a career, you will also be confronted with more obstacles, walls, and closed doors, that will be just as disappointing as getting ripped off. One thing you will find is that if you can't handle rejection and do not have thick skin then the entertainment industry definitely isn't for you. However if you can keepgetting back on that horse no matter how many times it throws you then this book will help you keep dusting yourself off and staying in the saddle. Consider me as your wagon master guiding you through dangerous territory, with all of its unpleasantness and uncertainties, although I can't guarantee the success of your journey through show business, as can no one, I can at least point you in the right direction so you won't be lured off the beaten path by the bandits that hide and wait for you. There will be those that will tell you that you will not succeed, but in my opinion if your only goal is to work in movies and you only work as a movie extra then you have succeeded, as success itself has many levels and one has to start somewhere. Trust me some of today's big names were also once told, "go home you'll never make it" and now they have a net worth of over $600,000,000.00. You may never become the $600,000,000.00 man or woman but no matter, follow your heart do what you love and love what you do.

In The Power of the Actor, a Los Angeles Times bestseller, premier acting teacher and coach Ivana Chubbuck reveals her cutting-edge technique, which has launched some of the most successful acting careers in Hollywood. The first book from the instructor who has taught Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Elisabeth Shue, Djimon Hounsou, and Halle Berry, The Power of the Actor guides you to dynamic and effective results. For many of today’s major talents, the Chubbuck Technique is the leading edge of acting for the twenty-first century. Ivana Chubbuck has developed a curriculum that takes the theories of the acting masters, such as Stanislavski, Meisner, and Hagen, to the next step by utilizing inner pain and emotions, not as an end in itself, but rather as a way to drive and win a goal. In addition to the powerful twelve-step process, the book takes well-known scripts, both classic and contemporary, and demonstrates how to precisely apply Chubbuck’s script-analysis process. The Power of the Actor is filled with fascinating and inspiring behind-the-scenes accounts of how noted actors have mastered their craft and have accomplished success in such a difficult and competitive field.

Two of the biggest musical-theatre stars working today answer questions submitted by the public on a wide range of theatrical topics. A message from Louise and Mark... This is the book for anyone who's seen a show and thought: 'That could be me...' That's what we used to think growing up, dreaming of working in musical theatre. Now, after years of hard work, we've been lucky enough to star in some amazing shows, including Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Ghost: The Musical, Evita and Cats. We've picked up lots of tips from other performers, and have developed our own strategies and solutions too. In this book, using this knowledge and our experiences, we want to draw back the curtain and shine a spotlight onto how you can follow in our footsteps. What makes our book really different (and useful) is that we asked our fans worldwide to submit questions – and thank you to the hundreds of you who did. Dozens of these questions are featured here, covering every aspect of the industry: 'What is it like training at drama school?' 'How can I improve my vocal range?' 'How do I prepare for an audition?' 'How should I find and select an agent?' 'How do I deal with rejection?' 'How can I progress from the ensemble to a leading role?' This is a tough and competitive business, but passion, determination, a clued-up approach – and this book – will help see you through. Read it to discover the secrets you need to know, and we hope that one day soon, up on stage, it will be you.
