Ignorance is bliss, or so hopes Antoine, the lead character in Martin Page?s stinging satire, How I Became Stupid?a modern day Candide with a Darwin Award?like sensibility. A twenty-five-year-old Aramaic scholar, Antoine has had it with being brilliant and deeply self-aware in today?s culture. So tortured is he by the depth of his perception and understanding of himself and the world around him that he vows to denounce his intelligence by any means necessary?in order to become ?stupid? enough to be a happy, functioning member of society. What follows is a dark and hilarious odyssey as Antoine tries everything from alcoholism to stock-trading in order to lighten the burden of his brain on his soul.

Are you relentlessly curious and creative, always willing to rock the boat in order to get things done . . . extremely energetic and focused, yet constantly switching gears . . . intensely sensitive, able to intuit subtly charged situations and decipher others' feeling? If these traits sound familiar, then you may be an Everyday Genius--an ordinary person of unusual vision who breaks the mold and isn't afraid to push progress forward. . . . As thought-provoking as Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence, psychologist Mary-Elaine Jacobsen's Gifted Adults draws on a wide range of groundbreaking research and her own clinical experience to show America's twenty million gifted adults how to identify and free their extraordinary potential. Gifted Adults presents the first practical tool for rating your Evolutionary Intelligence Quotient through an in-depth personality-type profile. Demystifying what it means to be a gifted adult, this book offers practical guidance for eliminating self-sabotage and underachievement, helping Everyday Geniuses and those who know, love, and work with them to understand and support the exceptional gifts inherent in these unique personality traits.

The present translation is based on the German original, which has been edited by Professor S. Strasser and published. in Husse1' liana-Edmund H usserl, Gesammelte We1'ke. A uj Grund des N ach lasses ve1'ojjentlicht vom Husse1'l-Archiv (Louvain) unlet' Leitung vonH. L. Van Breda, vol. I (The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 1950), pages 3-39. Both my translation of the Paris Lectures and the Introductory Essay had been completed before the appearance of two sub stantial scholarly achievements: Dorion Cairns' faithful trans lation of Husserl's difficult Cartesianische Meditationen and Herbert Spiegelberg's detailed and comprehensive two-volume work, The Phenomenological Movement. I have since collated most carefully Professor Cairns' translation with my own in those passages which are similar in the German of the Carte sianische Meditationen and the Pariser Vorlriige. As a result I was able to make several useful changes. Also, I have incorporated some material which had been unavailable to me prior to the publication of Professor Spiegelberg's work. However, I did not have the benefit of Dorion Cairns' Guide /0'1' Reading Busserl, which, at this writing, is not yet available in print. I would like to express my gratitude to the publishers as well as to Dr. Herman Leo Van Breda, Rudolf Boehm, and to the Husserl Archives for their patience, encouragement, help, and suggestions.
