Although instances of deliberate skin-cutting are recorded as far back as the old and New Testaments of the Bible the behavior has generally been regarded as a symptom of various mental disorders. With the publication of Bodies Under Siege, a book described in the New York Times Magazine (July 17, 1997) as "the first to comprehensively explore self-mutilation," Dr. Armando Favazza has pioneered the study of the behavior as significant and meaningful unto itself. Drawing from the latest case studies from clinical psychiatry he broadens our understanding of self-mutilation and body modification and explores their surprising connections to the elemental experiences of healing, religions, salvation, and social balance. Favazza makes sense out of seemingly senseless self-mutilative behaviors by providing both a useful classification and examination of the ways in which the behaviors provide effective but temporary relief from troublesome symptoms such as overwhelming anxiety, racing thoughts, and depersonalization. He offers important new information on the psychology and biology of self-mutilation, the link between self-mutilation and eating disorders, and advances in treatment. An epilogue by Fakir Musafar, the father of the Modern Primitive movement, describes his role in influencing a new generation to "experiment with the previously forbidden 'body side' of life" through piercing, blood rituals, scarification, and body sculpting in order to attain a state of grace. The second edition of Bodies Under Siege is the major source of information about self-mutilation, a much misunderstood behavior that is now coming into public awareness.

Vincent van Gogh continues to fascinate more than a century after his death in 1890. Yet how much of what is commonly known about this world-renowned artist is accurate? Though he left thousands of works and a trove of letters, the definitive Van Gogh remains elusive. Was he a madman who painted his greatest pieces in a passionate fury or a lifelong student of art, literature and science who carefully planned each composition? Was he a loner dedicated only to his craft or an active collaborator with his contemporaries? Why is he best known for self-mutilation and "The Starry Night"? This book has biographers, scriptwriters, lyricists, actors, museum curators and tour guides, among others, presenting diverse interpretations of his life and work, creating a mythic persona that may, in fact, help us in the search for the real Van Gogh.

As a five year old I encountered a picture of a young man in a rakish hat and a yellow coat, on the wall of a large classroom. There was something instantly intriguing about the image, but it was also puzzling because it represented neither politician nor prince, the usual fare for Australian school decorations. I was eventually told that this was a reproduction of a painting, the artist was Vincent van Gogh, and that the subject was some young Frenchman. On special days we assembled in that room and during the next several years I found myself gazing beyond visiting speakers at the fellow in the yellow jacket. It was almost another fifty years before I felt properly conversant with the portrait and realized that van Gogh's subject, Armand Roulin, was seventeen at the time ofthe original painting and had died at seventy-four during my schoolboy contemplations. In the interim my enjoyment of the works of the Impressionists and Post Impressionists had grown and I occasionally ran into the name of Dr. Gachet, Vincent's last attending physician, in books and catalog essays. The doctor was my entree to the overlapping charms of medical and art histories. In 1987 I had the good fortune to participate as a biochemist in the centenary celebration of the Pasteur Institut in Paris.

When completed in 1973, the museum was opened by Queen Juliana of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In 1999, a new wing designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa was added, with an irregular oval shape. In 2015, a glass curtain was added to two buildings, which is the entrance to the museum.

In 2017, the number of visitors reached a record 2.26 million,becoming the most visited museum in the Netherlands, the huge flow of people caused trouble for the Van Gogh Museum. The museum has taken a series of measures to reduce the number of tourists, mainly by increasing fares.

The number will increase to 19 Euros in 2019, the number of tourists will continue to decline. Van Gogh was determined to become an artist when he was 27 years old. In just 10 years of creative career, he left 860 paintings, more than 1,200 drawings, sketches in letters, watercolors and other works on paper and 820 letters. Due to the lack of money to invite models, Van Gogh painted a lot of self-portraits, the most famous of which is "Self-Portrait after Cutting Ear". Van Gogh's work was kept by Van Gogh's younger brother Dio and later sold to the Dutch government for millions of dollars. The condition is the establishment of the "Van Gogh Foundation", which is controlled by the Van Gogh family, and a "Van Gogh Museum" in Amsterdam. Yellow is Van Gogh's representative color. Van Gogh's self-portrait is hung in the center of the entire yellow wall of the museum. Upon entering, rent an audio guide for five euros per person. The guide has multiple languages ​​including Chinese, but the English explanation is more detailed, and the introduction information of multiple languages ​​is only simplified version in Chinese. To protect paintings, photography is not allowed in the museum's exhibition area. The museum has four floors, displaying works from low to high according to Van Gogh's life, visitors walk through Van Gogh's life vertically from bottom to top. On March 30, 1853, Vincent Van Gogh was born in Zindert, a small town in the Brabant region of the Netherlands. At the age of 11, he transferred to a boarding school in Zevenbergen. At the age of 13, he attended Tilburg Middle School and dropped out halfway through the second school year. At the age of 16, he joined the Gubir International Art Company as an apprentice. Van Gogh was transferred to Paris in 1875 and fired in 1876. After leaving Gubir, Van Gogh returned to the UK to work as a voluntary teaching assistant at a boarding school in Ramsgate. At the end of 1876, Van Gogh returned to Brabant, the Netherlands, but did not return to Britain. Dutch period (1880-1885) In October 1880, Van Gogh moved to Brussels and began to study painting skills. Since there was no longer a steady income, his younger brother Dio helped him from time to time. In the spring of 1881, Van Gogh moved to Eton, Brabant, to live with his parents. On Christmas day in 1881, Van Gogh left home after a quarrel with his father went to The Hague to find a distant cousin, the then-known painter Anton Muff learned painting. In early 1882, Van Gogh met Sean and became his model and lover. Sean had fallen into dust, was pregnant in Rokko, and had a five-year-old daughter. The two rented a room, and the family was able to live in. The two eventually broke up. In December 1883, Van Gogh moved back to Nuenen to live with his parents again. Van Gogh's father died at the end of March 1885. "Potato Eater", completed between April and May 1885, was Van Gogh's first large-scale figure painting, and he was very satisfied. At the end of the year, Van Gogh decided to go to the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium, said goodbye to his native Netherlands, and never returned. Paris period (1886 – 1888) At that time, the Paris art market was popular with Japanese Ukiyo-e prints. He had never been to Japan's Van Gogh and loved Ukiyo-e. His style was influenced by Ukiyo-e. One of them was "The Sower". At that time, Ukiyo-e woodcut prints cost only a few cents. Van Gogh bought 660 pieces held an exhibition in an attempt to resell the profits, but only sold more than a hundred copies, about 500 of which have been circulating to this day. Arles (1888 – 1889) On February 20, 1888, Van Gogh took a day and a night train to Arles, a small town on the Long River, and began his creative heyday. He lived in Arles, southern France, and established the "Southern Studio." Van Gogh invited Gauguin, his long-cherished favorite, to live in a yellow house. The yellow house became Van Gogh's painting "The Yellow House." Van Gogh used his paintings to decorate the yellow house. Five versions of "Sunflower" were born inside the house. The first "Sunflower" appeared in the house in August 1888. "Sunflower" did not bring Van Gogh's fame and fortune, his letter to his younger brother Dio on October 25, 1888 was pessimistic. "If my paintings don't sell, I can't do anything about it, but that day will come. People will realize that these paintings are more valuable than pigments and our spent livelihoods." Gauguin and Van Gogh had many creative sparks. In tribute to Van Gogh, he drew a painting "Vinson Painting a Sunflower. Van Gogh". Unexpectedly, this painting became the fuse of Van Gogh and Gauguin, which eventually caused a bloody case because of different painting concepts. On December 23, 1888, Gauguin had a fierce quarrel with Van Gogh, Gauguin threatened to leave, which led to the recurrence of

A tribute to the parts we can live without... or can we? This book sheds light on human body parts once considered extraneous but now – with modern medicine and modern medical paraphernalia – shown to play an important role in our healthful survival. With wit and research-honed wisdom, health writer Carol Ann Rinzler explains in layman's language why we need “bonus” body parts such as: The appendix, once discarded as “the worm of the intestines,” but now believed to play an important role in our immune system The coccyx, a.k.a. the “tailbone,” once considered the remnant of a human tail, but now considered the keystone of the boney pelvic arch when muscles meet and stabilize our seating Wisdom teeth, that “extra” set of molars for which many “evolved” human jaws lack accommodating space but still remain in place where we higher primates still follow a basic “hard”diet that require extra chew power On the other hand, having highlighted the still-important parts, Rinzler adds a chapter on dispensables: parts with which we can indeed happily dispense. Along the way, Rinzler weaves in Darwin’s theories of evolution and shares insights on what the human body may be like millennia from now.
