Review from goodreads.com by Wilde (GoodReads user published 2017-12-18 ) 1 of 1 people found this review helpful This book provides an overview of Eastern Philosophy.

Review from goodreads.com by Harry (GoodReads user published 2013-05-13 ) 1 of 1 people found this review helpful A book written in a cartoon style to inform the reader on complex themes. It works very well to get the difficult concepts over in an entertaining way without trivialising them.
101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life... — 101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life by Roger-Pol Droit... Condition: Like New “What more can I say beyond "Like new". It really, really is very much like new condition” Narrative Type: Non-Fiction Publication Year: 2003 Author: Roger-Pol Droit Subjects: Philosophy ISBN: 9780571212064 Format: Paperback Language: English Publisher: Faber & Faber Topic: Popular Philosophy, Literary Theory Number of Pages: 224 Pages Product Information In 101 short examples, Roger-Pol Droit invites us to reconsider our most ordinary actions as unexpected philosophical events. Peeling an apple, trying to lie in a hammock, watching someone sleep, hearing your voice on an answering an answering machine, playing with a small child - activities that, when considered outside of their routine, invite us to experience the familiar in startling new ways. Droit encourages us to go further: pretend to be an animal of your choice, create a wall with your hands, try to walk around your room in total darkness, spend time in the subway system - and observe your oddity. Paperback edition first published in 2003 Say your name aloud to yourself in a quiet room. Imagine peeling an apple in your mind. Take the subway without trying to get anywhere. The simple meditations in this book have the potential to shake us awake from our preconceived certainties: our own identity, the stability of the outside world, the meanings of words. At once entertaining and startling, irreverent and wise, this book will provoke moments of awareness for readers in any situation and in all walks of life. Enter the space of your favourite painting. Watch someone sleeping. The world won't look the same again. Story rated it it was amazing Shelves: how-to-live, philosophy Thought provoking and fun. A book to be savoured and dipped into from time to time. I've been practicing "See the Stars Below You" as I fall asleep at night. Dazzling!
The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain de Botton ... — The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain de Botton (Paperback, 2000) Item specifics Condition: Very Good “Generally excellent condition all round.” Brand: Penguin Publication Year: 2000 Narrative Type: Non-Fiction Topic: Popular Philosophy Subjects: Philosophy ISBN: 9780241140116 Format: Paperback Language: English Author: Alain De Botton Publisher: Penguin Books LTD Number of Pages: 272 Pages The Consolations of Philosophy In Ancient Greece or Rome, philosophers were seen as natural authorities on the most pressing questions. However, since then, the idea of finding wisdom from philosophy has come to seem bizarre. Enter a university department today and ask to study wisdom, and you will politely but firmly be shown the door. The Consolations of Philosophy sets out to refute the notion that good philosophy must be irrelevant and gathers together six great philosophers who were convinced of the power of philosophical insight to work a practical effect on our lives. Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche are read for the light their work can shine on certain great universal problems, among them, unpopularity, poverty, inadequacy, lovelessness and timidity. The book amounts to a guide to wisdom – as well as to the practical utility of philosophy. Nov 08, 2007Keegan rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: everyone Shelves: philosophy Now, you may laugh, but I thought this was one of the best philosophy-related books I've ever read. I recognize that it's pretty basic, a little silly, etc., but for some reason it did it for me. It's short and sweet and it humanizes otherwise esoteric knowledge. After I blazed through this book one evening, I went on to read the actual writings of Epicurus, Nietzsche, and Montaigne. It was the spark I needed to get me reading philosophy again. I heartily recommend it. :-)
Junk Mail by Will Self (Paperback, 2006) Conditio... — Junk Mail by Will Self (Paperback, 2006) Condition: Acceptable “The bottom edge got wet somewhere at some time, (can't remember how!) So, there is now a stain which gradually diminishes as you read your way through the 431 pages. By half way it is barely noticeable.” Author: Will Self Publication Year: 2006 Narrative Type: Non-Fiction ISBN: 9780747582274 Format: Paperback Language: English Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing Topic: Literary Theory Number of Pages: 448 Pages About this product Product Information Everything that makes Will Self' s fiction so arresting and original is in evidence here in this collection of his best articles, book reviews, and interviews from the Observer , the Guardian , the Independent , the Evening Standard , and many more. Whether describing penis operations, narcotics or merely pondering the nature of slacking, these pieces are as witty and acerbic as one would expect from one of our foremost contemporary satirists. Junk Mail by Will Self 3.60 · Rating details · 374 ratings · 16 reviews Will Self is one of the most important British novelists of his generation, and he is as acclaimed in the UK for his outstanding, daring journalism as he is for his fiction. Now finally available in America, Junk Mail is an original selection of pieces from Self's nonfiction and journalism that will introduce American readers to Self as a literary journalist par excellence. Animated by the scathing brilliance and unflinching determination to walk the road less travelled, Junk Mail is an often irreverent trawl through a landscape of drugs, culture, art, literature, and current events — topics Self illuminates with a keen and entirely original eye. We follow Self into the operation of an upstanding crack dealer, behind the myth of the "pragmatist" approach to drug legalization on the streets of Amsterdam, and to lunch with Indian author Salman Rushdie. Whether he is writing about bad boy British artist Damien Hirst, how literary renegade William Burroughs has changed our outlook on art and intoxication, or what the current state of transsexuality has to say about gender for all of us, this is a lively and necessary anthology from one of the defining voices of our times.

Jul 07, 2009Z rated it it was amazing Recommended to Z by: a beautiful place called the local library I've never been able to relate to a book as much as I have with this one. It has created a base for all my thoughts and ideas. To give a brief review, this book is a very thorough explanation of the Bhagadad-Gita. It breaks down section by section of the Bhagavad-Gita and really interprets each passage in detail. With each page I find a question that I could never find the answer to solved in just a simple, yet informative, paragraph or two. A great read for people with open minds and an interest in the lifestyles of different cultures.
