The Complete Essays by Michel de Montaigne (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.3 Stars (90 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Michel de Montaigne was one of the most influential figures of the Renaissance, singlehandedly responsible for popularising the essay as a literary form. In 1572, Montaigne retired to his estates in order to devote himself to leisure, reading and reflection. There he wrote his constantly expanding 'essays', inspired by the ideas he found in books from his library and his own experience. He discusses subjects as diverse as war-horses and cannibals, poetry and politics, sex and religion, love and friendship, ecstasy and experience. Above all, Montaigne studied himself to find his own inner nature and that of humanity. The Essays are among the most idiosyncratic and personal works in all literature. An insight into a wise Renaissance mind, they continue to engage, enlighten and entertain modern readers. Born in 1533, Michel de Montaigne studied law and spent a number of years working as a counsellor before devoting his life to reading, writing and reflection. He died in 1586.

Let's Get Rid of growth!: Moving Away from Capital-Led Globalization by Ariel Francais (Our Future World) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

We are at a dead end: growth has become unsustainable, it no longer generates jobs as in the past, it concentrates wealth in the hands of a tiny oligarchy and it is destroying our planet. Capital-led globalization is indeed behind this overall disaster, which will end with us if we do not react on time. But to do that we must have a project: an alternative to the deadly course that our world has taken. We must reverse our priorities; no longer expect from growth the solution to all our problems. We should rather prioritize our basic needs, the recovery of the environment, social conviviality and economic self-reliance. To do so, we must deliver a new world, which requires combating the ruling ideology, reinventing democracy, governing wisely and building fair societies. Intellectuals and activists have a special responsibility in this respect. This book is particularly intended for them. This is the overall project proposed by Ariel Fran├žais, a blueprint for changing our world, turning it more fair, convivial and sustainable.

HumanAlien by VIKA L COPPENS 5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

HumanAlien is a tetralogy, women fiction that invites you into the life of Vic, a half human half alien that explores life, feelings, Earth and the Universe. Take her hand, follow her path of healing and get ready to question everything you ever knew, starting with a heartbreak.. This story has so much more to offer than raising awareness about mental health; it is also related to subjects we all go through in our daily life that we all can relate to. Every chapter starts with a quote and a first paragraph that offers the reader to question their own life, their personal feelings and also let them questions about their own individuality. What makes this novel more special is that it is made of 4 smaller books named Dragonfly, Wolf, Goldfish and Honeybee. They all represent their own element and all have their different vibe, but together they make one full story.

A Preface to Philosophy: Exploring Truth, Doubt, and Ethics by Philip Wik (A Blue Kitten Book) Price verified 10 hours ago

In A Preface to Philosophy, I tackle the most perplexing questions that we've asked ourselves since we left the caves. At almost 170,000 words, this is one of my longest books. And yet when I consider all that has been written and can be written about the big questions of life, I look at my book as not even a teaspoon in the ocean of knowledge -- a preface at how I look at the profound questions of epistemology, skepticism, and ethics. We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. T.S. Eliot

Re-Inventing Africa's Development: Linking Africa to the Korean Development Model by Jong-Dae Park (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This open access book analyses the development problems of sub-Sahara Africa (SSA) from the eyes of a Korean diplomat with knowledge of the economic growth Korea has experienced in recent decades. The author argues that Africa's development challenges are not due to a lack of resources but a lack of management, presenting an alternative to the traditional view that Africa's problems are caused by a lack of leadership. In exploring an approach based on mind-set and nation-building, rather than unity - which tends to promote individual or party interests rather than the broader country or national interests - the author suggests new solutions for SSA's economic growth, inspired by Korea's successful economic growth model much of which is focused on industrialisation. This book will be of interest to researchers, policymakers, NGOs and governmental bodies in economics, development and politics studying Africa's economic development, and Korea's economic growth model.
