The Bible Unveiled by M. M. Mangasarian (e-artnow) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

To make it possible for a man to be as honest in his religion as he would like to be in his business; to make him as unafraid in church as he aims to be anywhere else, and to help make him as impatient of a lie on Sunday as he is on any other day of the week, is the object of these studies on the Bible. In this book Mangasarian presents numerous evidences which prove that the Bible is not an authentic book but a compilation of older myths and legends.

Creative Mind: Lessons and Speeches on Mental and Spiritual Law by Ernest Holmes (e-artnow) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Creative Mind displays what each soul must discover for himself, that he stands in the midst of an eternal creative power which presses itself around his own thought, and casts back to him glorified all that he thinks. If it awakens within the consciousness of one single individual the realization that the mind of the Universal (which is the only mind that there is) is his own mind that the creative power of this mind is his also; that the manifestation of this mind is his own individuality; that the love and power and peace of this mind is within himself, it will not be written in vain. May it then do much in simplifying and bringing to light some of the deeper mysteries and meanings of life.

REQUIEM FOR THE WEST by Robert Trainor 4.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

NOTE: This book can also be purchased with seven other novels of mine for $3,99 in an anthology entitled Eight Novels. Requiem for the West is also contained in 5 Novels, which is another anthology of mine that sells for $2.99. An apocalyptic poem entitled "Requiem for the West" is at the center of this tale, which has equal elements of pervasive mockery, offbeat romance, doomsday premonitions, and Dilbert-like farce. Larry Zane is a professor of English who is appointed to a committee that is running a poetry contest where the hundred-thousand-dollar first prize will be given to the poem that most resembles "The Raven," by Edgar Allan Poe. Also on the committee are Jaden Graves, the chain-smoking President of the college, Julian Mendoza, the sexual-predator Provost, and Mariah Rhodes, an attractive woman lawyer. Meanwhile, as the committee becomes lost in waves of cigarette smoke, sexual innuendos, and contemptuous insults, Larry becomes disillusioned with the relationship that he ...

The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life by Émile Durkheim (e-artnow) 3.4 Stars (33 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Elementary Forms of Religious Life analyses religion as a social phenomenon. Durkheim attributes the development of religion to the emotional security attained through communal living. His study of totemic societies in Australia led to a conclusion that the animal or plant that each clan worshipped as a sacred power was in fact that society itself. According to Durkheim, early humans associated such feelings not only with one another, but as well with objects in their environment. This, Durkheim believed, led to the ascription of human sentiments and superhuman powers to these objects, in turn leading to totemism.

WORDS: The way feelings control our mind by Gyozo Margoczi 4.2 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Looking at words, in a way that has never been done before... Words form the basis of human thinking. During its history, humankind has been using words without being aware of what words are, what the process of thinking in words looks like and what its pitfalls are. As a result, sometimes we use meaningless words to make meaningless sentences which build up meaningless theories, in a good case, but which, in a bad case, can also build up theories that ruin the lives of millions of people. And all this is not without 'beautiful' consequences: the history of humankind is a sequence of unending plots, genocides, bloody wars and economic crises. While the development of sciences soars uninterruptedly, human studies are struggling in the dust like a bird without wings. Why? Because of words. Or more precisely, because there is an undiscovered, mysterious world where words are rooted and through and in which they live. What to do? Is there a way out? These are the questions this book ...

The Prince: Political Treatise by Niccolò Machiavelli (e-artnow) 4.4 Stars (2,793 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

The Prince is a political treatise by the Florentine philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli, written c. 1513. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. Machiavelli dedicated The Prince to the ruling Medici of the time, leading some today to still speculate whether the book was a satire. Niccolò Machiavelli asserted that The Prince (president, dictator, prime minister, etc.) does not have to be concerned with ethics, as long as their motivation is to protect the state. It is this questionable belief that in many ways had lead to the modern world as we know it. His assertion was that the head of state must protect the state no matter the cost and no matter what rules he or she breaks in the process.

Matter and Memory by Henri Bergson (e-artnow) 3.7 Stars (30 Reviews)    Price verified 26 minutes ago

Matter and Memory presents an analysis of the classical philosophical problems concerning this relation. Within that frame the analysis of memory serves the purpose of clarifying the problem. Matter and Memory was written in reaction to the book The Maladies of Memory by Théodule Ribot, which appeared in 1881. Ribot claimed that the findings of brain science proved that memory is lodged within a particular part of the nervous system; localized within the brain and thus being of a material nature. Bergson was opposed to this reduction of spirit to matter. Defending a clear anti-reductionist position, he considered memory to be of a deeply spiritual nature, the brain serving the need of orienting present action by inserting relevant memories. The brain thus being of a practical nature, certain lesions tend to perturb this practical function, but without erasing memory as such. The memories are, instead, simply not 'incarnated', and cannot serve their purpose.

The Boys of East Precinct: A True Story of Police Harassment and Cover-up by Michael L. Eads (Red San Publishing, LLC) 1.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 19 hours ago

George Floyd, Terrence Crutcher, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and the list goes on and on. We Americans are so used to unarmed citizens being approached (under questionable circumstances) by the police, that we have become apathetic. How many more people have to die before the citizens of this country wake up and collectively do something about the abuse of law enforcement? The Boys of East Precinct is a true story of police harassment and cover-up. It also identifies the need for the federal government to intervene on innocent citizen's behalf against out-of-control officers of the law who inflict unnecessary and excessive use of punitive force stemming from emotion and anger. In other words, it's time to get the bully cops who think they're above the law off the streets before more innocent citizens are harassed, beaten or killed.

The Illusion of Self: The Ego and its Influence by Guy Stanley 4.1 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

The Illusion of Self opens the reader to challenge the perception the Ego creates within the physical mind. From birth we form our concept of self through ideas, actions and reactions of the life experience. It is a composite of all the influences of our lifetime; our struggles, our likes, dislikes, our wants and desires. It continues to develop through life's challenges, creating in itself the illusions of an idea of "what is." In reality, it's all an illusion of how we observe life. The Illusion of Self exposes these perceptions and directs the reader to consider Truth and its meaning.

Fading Foundations: Probability and the Regress Problem (Synthese Library Book 383) by David Atkinson (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 18 hours ago

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book addresses the age-old problem of infinite regresses in epistemology. How can we ever come to know something if knowing requires having good reasons, and reasons can only be good if they are backed by good reasons in turn? The problem has puzzled philosophers ever since antiquity, giving rise to what is often called Agrippa's Trilemma. The current volume approaches the old problem in a provocative and thoroughly contemporary way. Taking seriously the idea that good reasons are typically probabilistic in character, it develops and defends a new solution that challenges venerable philosophical intuitions and explains why they were mistakenly held. Key to the new solution is the phenomenon of fading foundations, according to which distant reasons are less important than those that are nearby. The phenomenon takes the sting out of Agrippa's Trilemma; moreover, since the theory that describes it is general and abstract, it is ...

Sharpen your mind, reframe your perspectives, and unleash your full human potential RD Laing presented madness as a voyage of discovery that could open out onto a free state of higher consciousness, or hypersanity. But if there is such a thing as hypersanity, then mere sanity is not all it's cracked up to be, a state of dormancy and dullness with less vital potential even than madness. We could all go mad, in a way we already are, minus the promise. But what if there was another route to hypersanity, one which, compared to madness, was less fearsome, less dangerous, and less damaging? What if, as well as a backdoor way, there was also a royal road strewn with petals and sprayed with perfume? This is a book about thinking, which, astonishingly, is barely taught in formal education. Our culture mostly equates thinking with logical reasoning, and the first few chapters examine logic, reason, their forms, and their flaws, starting with the basics of argumentation. But thinking is also ...

The human condition is one riddled with complexities about the path we yearn for, who we are and what we believe. We have become so dogmatic in our own beliefs that when they don't come to fruition or we find them to be a hoax, our journey can come crashing down with doubt, fear, and uncertainty. Many individuals think they know why they are doing what they do, where they will end up, or who they wish to be in 3 to 7 years until a catastrophic event called life occurs. We dream to live adventurously but the fear of change confines us to only existing, which is to survive in the fog of society thus creating a disoriented/invisible sensation. The unknown causes our thoughts to imprison us as we ponder if we will ever be content or if we will forever be in debt paying bills. We work hard to be accepted instead of acknowledged. We wonder about our next occupation or what comes after retirement. We worry about things we can't control then suffer from anxiety. Our breath is limited by ...

Existence & Consciousness: A Theory of Naturalistic Idealism by Richard Lucido (East Detroit Educational Press) 4.6 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Existence and Consciousness presents us with a world without space, a world that consists only of information, consciousness, and time. It offers a theory of idealism from an existentialist perspective. Matter, energy, and space are viewed as holding on to no existence outside of their essence (i.e., their defining properties). This is what precludes them from objectively persisting in time. Only consciousness, broken down into its smallest units, is capable of existing beyond its essence. This is what makes it a necessary constituent of reality, for without it the world would be merely an abstraction. Free of new age spiritualism, Existence and Consciousness is a sober and naturalistic attempt at conceptualizing a reality whose primary constituent is consciousness. The book presents its original insights within a broad multidisciplinary backdrop where ideas from contemporary analytical philosophy, existential philosophy, and ancient philosophy are related to empirical findings from ...

Politics and Media in Society: Discovering the Truth in an Era of Deceit and Disinformation by William M. Fraser (Chestnut Treehouse Publishers LLC) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

Given the flawed world we live in -- political discourse has never exactly been a bastion of peace and harmony. Yet, in recent times we have seen political polarization increase considerably. Whether one supports Republicans, Democrats, Liberal, Conservative, Left or Right -- all too often, we find ourselves backed into a corner fighting for "our team." Now political views, rather than defining some abstract thought or theory, seems to define our very being, or who we are as a person. How did this happen? Like an autopsy on the current state of affairs, this book seeks to examine the factors that brought about the death of civility in our society. Many say that the media has only fanned these flames of discontent. Is it true? Have mainstream news networks sacrificed truth and integrity on the altar of ratings? With an open mind and an objective perspective, we dive deep to discover the truth in an era of deceit and disinformation!

Dad, Why Are You Still Talking About Saul Alinsky, He's Been Dead Since 1972?: Socialism and the Deep State's War on Our Constitution by Steve Borovay 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

To the up and coming generations, we've reached a crisis point in our nation's history. The last this severe was the Civil War when brother fought brother. Our Constitution has been brutally assault-ed by forces seen and unseen. The 1st, 4th, and 5th amendment rights only apply to those who control the levers of power and not those they target and seek to destroy. This book serves as a history lesson as our past is a guide to the present, and then to the future. In world history, there has never been a socialist country where promises made were promises kept. The picture painted is socialism leads to fairness or "More Hope and More Change." The reality is it never has been that way and only leaves the masses destitute, empowering a few to control all. It's time for all to put your social media aside and pay attention to what is going on in this country as your freedoms are at stake. My one wish is that, hopefully, this book opens your eyes to what is happening to our country and ...

Near-death experience (NED) is a recognized universal phenomenon. Is it bringing us closer to the meaning of life itself? Find out in the over 20 cases in this collection of NDE. Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! The expression "near-death experience" can be incredibly evocative.

The Epistles of Abu Amir by Abu Amir (Mitanni Publishing) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified one hour ago

What follows is a series of epistles and missives (letters) sent to a friend of mine explaining Islam (to a degree). Upon editing the letters I realized that they may as well be of use to those intrigued with the thoughts of a Muslim in today's society. Islam is a holistic deen (way of life) that is intended to restore the natural order of inner peace in the human soul. It is referred to as a fitra religion. Meaning, it appeals to the natural disposition of the human being in relation to his creator. It is a simple way of life predicated on simple deeds done purely for the sake of Allah (God) and the natural order he ordained for the universe and the myriad of microcosmic universes inside of the larger universe. In wake of the recent episodes of terroristic mayhem that has plagued the planet; the publication of these epistles became more imperative and conducive to interfaith dialogue as well as providing the transparency needed for those seeking to understand what Islam truly is and ...

Where Einstein had failed: A compendium of New Physics by Claus Birkholz (BookRix) 3.8 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 26 minutes ago

Einstein's revolutionary ideas had been suffering from his rudimentary mathematical knowledge beyond the domain of differential geometry. Thus, he never recognised the invariants of his General Relativity, and he never had been able to formulate his "World Formula". Hence, his basic equation remained somewhat blurry and fuzzy, touching just one of his invariants; the additional ones fully escaped his notice. His description of physics close to big values of heavy masses went completely wrong: the rotation of stars about the galactic centre of the Milky Way is contradicting his equation. Neither did he succeed in describing a black hole. For compensation, cosmologists invented their concept of "dark matter" later on. "Dark energy", accidentally, had been made possible by Einstein's "cosmological constant". Nevertheless, he had been unaware that his "constant" is a variable. Its origin and composition remained enigmatic to him and to his followers until to-day. His conviction of ...

Socialism: An Essential Review by Shawn Henry Potter (Renatus Press®) Price verified 23 hours ago

All across America, political candidates for federal, state, and local office are proclaiming the principles of socialism.

Inconceivable Effects: Ethics through Twentieth-Century German Literature, Thought, and Film (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought) by Martin Blumenthal-Barby (Cornell University Press and Cornell University Library) Price verified 23 hours ago

In Inconceivable Effects, Martin Blumenthal-Barby reads theoretical, literary and cinematic works that appear noteworthy for the ethical questions they raise. Via critical analysis of writers and filmmakers whose projects have changed our ways of viewing the modern world -- including Hannah Arendt, Franz Kafka, Walter Benjamin, the directors of Germany in Autumn, and Heiner Müller -- these essays furnish a cultural base for contemporary discussions of totalitarian domination, lying and politics, the relation between law and body, the relation between law and justice, the question of violence, and our ways of conceptualizing "the human." A consideration of ethics is central to the book, but ethics in a general, philosophical sense is not the primary subject here; instead, Blumenthal-Barby suggests that whatever understanding of the ethical one has is always contingent upon a particular mode of presentation (Darstellung), on particular aesthetic qualities and features of media. ...

Dignity in the 21st Century - Middle East and West is unique and insightful for a range of reasons. First, the book is co-authored by scholars from two different cultures (Middle East and West).

Thus, the book is designed to be accessible to a general readership, which is further facilitated because it is published with full open access. Third, the book does not defend one superior theory of dignity, but instead presents six Western approaches and one based on the Koran and then asks whether a common ...

The Oldest Vocation: Christian Motherhood in the Medieval West by Clarissa W. Atkinson (Cornell University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 18 hours ago

According to an old story, a woman concealed her sex and ruled as pope for a few years in the ninth century. Pope Joan was not betrayed by a lover or discovered by an enemy; her downfall came when she went into labor during a papal procession through the streets of Rome. From the myth of Joan to the experiences of saints, nuns, and ordinary women, The Oldest Vocation brings to life both the richness and the troubling contradictions of Christian motherhood in medieval Europe. After tracing the roots of medieval ideologies of motherhood in early Christianity, Clarissa W. Atkinson reconstructs the physiological assumptions underlying medieval notions about women's bodies and reproduction; inherited from Greek science and popularized through the practice of midwifery, these assumptions helped shape common beliefs about what mothers were. She then describes the development of "spiritual motherhood" both as a concept emerging out of monastic ideologies in the early Middle Ages and as a ...

How do American intellectuals try to achieve their political and social goals? By what means do they articulate their hopes for change? John McGowan seeks to identify the goals and strategies of contemporary humanistic intellectuals who strive to shape the politics and culture of their time. In a lively mix of personal reflection and shrewd analysis, McGowan visits the sites of intellectual activity (scholarly publications, professional conferences, the classroom, and the university) and considers the hazards of working within such institutional contexts to effect change outside the academy. Democracy's Children considers the historical trajectory that produced current intellectual practices. McGowan links the growing prestige of "culture" since 1800 to the growth of democracy and the obsession with modernity and explores how intellectuals became both custodians and creators of culture. Caught between fears of culture's irrelevance and dreams of its omnipotence, intellectuals pursue ...

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. "Marginality" is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.?

The Topography of Modernity: Karl Philipp Moritz and the Space of Autonomy (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought) by Elliott Schreiber (Cornell University Press and Cornell University Library) Price verified 26 minutes ago

Karl Philipp Moritz (d. 1793) was one of the most innovative writers of the late Enlightenment in Germany. A novelist, travel writer, editor, and teacher he is probably best known today for his autobiographical novel Anton Reiser (1785-90) and for his treatises on aesthetics, foremost among them Über die bildende Nachahmung des Schönen (On the Formative Imitation of the Beautiful) (1788). In this treatise, Moritz develops the concept of aesthetic autonomy, which became widely known after Goethe included a lengthy excerpt of it in his own Italian Journey (1816-17). It was one of the foundational texts of Weimar classicism, and it became pivotal for the development of early Romanticism. In The Topography of Modernity, Elliott Schreiber gives Moritz the credit he deserves as an important thinker beyond his contributions to aesthetic theory. Indeed, he sees Moritz as an incisive early observer and theorist of modernity. Considering a wide range of Moritz's work including his novels, ...

Empire’s Labor: The Global Army That Supports U.S. Wars by Adam Moore (Cornell University Press) 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

In a dramatic unveiling of the little-known world of contracted military logistics, Adam Moore examines the lives of the global army of laborers who support US overseas wars. Empire's Labor brings us the experience of the hundreds of thousands of men and women who perform jobs such as truck drivers and administrative assistants at bases located in warzones in the Middle East and Africa. He highlights the changes the US military has undergone since the Vietnam War, when the ratio of contractors to uniformed personnel was roughly 1:6. In Afghanistan it has been as high as 4:1. This growth in logistics contracting represents a fundamental change in how the US fights wars, with the military now dependent on a huge pool of contractors recruited from around the world. It also, Moore demonstrates, has social, economic, and political implications that extend well beyond the battlefields. Focusing on workers from the Philippines and Bosnia, two major sources of "third country national" (TCN) ...

She sheds light on the history of "voice" as a narrative strategy and as a means of attaining social power. She considers the dynamics in personal voice in authors such as Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, Zora Neale Hurston, and Jamaica Kincaid. In writers who attempt a "communal voice" -- including Mary Wollstonecraft, Elizabeth Gaskell, Joan Chase, and Monique Wittig -- she finds innovative strategies that challenge the conventions of Western narrative.

In this book, conceived and written for the general reader as well as the specialist, Robert Edelman uses a case study of peasant behavior during a particular revolutionary situation to make an important contribution to one of the major debates in contemporary peasant studies. Edelman's subject is the peasantry of the right-bank Ukraine, and he uses local and regional archives seldom available to Western scholars to give a detailed picture of the ways in which the inhabitants of one of Russia's most advanced agrarian regions expressed their discontent during the years 1905-1907. By the 1890s, the landlords of Russia's Southwest had organized a highly successful capitalist form of agriculture, and Edelman demonstrates that their peasants responded to these dramatic economic changes by adopting many of the forms of political and social behavior generally associated with urban proletarians.

"Not of woman born, the Fortunate, the Unborn" -- the terms designating those born by Caesarean section in medieval and Renaissance Europe were mysterious and ambiguous.

Bringing together medical treatises and texts as well as hitherto unexplored primary sources such as manuscript illuminations, she provides a fresh perspective on ...

Lift Us Up, Don't Push Us Out!: Voices from the Front Lines of the Educational Justice Movement by Mark R. Warren (Beacon Press) 4.1 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Parents, young people, community organizers, and educators describe how they are fighting systemic racism in schools by building a new intersectional educational justice movement. Illuminating the struggles and triumphs of the emerging educational justice movement, this anthology tells the stories of how black and brown parents, students, educators, and their allies are fighting back against systemic inequities and the mistreatment of children of color in low-income communities.

Above Life’s Turmoil by James Allen 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 hours ago

We cannot alter external things, nor shape other people to our liking, nor mould the world to our wishes but we can alter internal things, our desires, passions, thoughts, we can shape our liking to other people, and we can mould the inner world of our own mind in accordance with wisdom, and so reconcile it to the outer world if men and things.

It would be well for every young man, eager for success and anxious to form a character that will achieve it, to commit to memory the advice of Bishop Middleton: Persevere against discouragements.

Preserve self-possession, and do not be talked out of a conviction. Rise early, and be an economist of time. Maintain dignity without the appearance of pride; manner is something with everybody, and everything with some. Be guarded in discourse, attentive, and slow to speak. Never acquiesce in immoral or pernicious opinions.
