Stoicism: A Definitive Beginners Guide to Apply Stoicism Philosophy in Everyday Life. Gain Wisdom and Improve your Confidence, Resilience and ... by John Harper 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

Would you like to never fall into reaction to emotions? Wouldn't it feel nice to instead maintain a sense of logic and rationality at all times? When the winds of passion blow, you would stand firm against them, holding tight to what makes sense, resisting emotions as temporary and misleading. If you are unfamiliar with Stoic philosophy then it entails all this, this mindset can come across as cold, but within Stoic philosophy, it is admirable. Maintaining one's calm, Stoics believe, is a point of pride. Just as Stoic philosophers reject unnecessary excitement, they reject desire and fear outright as well. Anything that tilts the mind or sways the spirit, anything that could prejudice someone against reason, it is all bad. There is no gray area here for Stoics, who view desire and fear as tainting forces, evils that separate us from virtue. If we are to live right, then we must make ourselves aware of desire and fear as they arise and then put them away, leave them in their ...

The Way of the Stoic Epictetus: A Short Introduction by Gary W Cross 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

Epictetus was an ancient Greek Stoic philosopher. Arrian (Epictetus's biographer) tells us that Epictetus 'had no other purpose than to move the minds of those listening to what is best', and that to achieve the best is to be calm, happy and free. This book offers a short introduction to Epictetus' way to achieving these - including the problems that Epictetus identifies as the reasons for us not achieving these; the directions that Epictetus offers to help us to achieve these; and finally, the strategies that Epictetus offers to help us to overcome the problems, to successfully follow his directions and ultimately to be calm, happy and free. This book is part of the series 'Ways of the World' in which I explore the different ways of the world that have helped to shape my mind, and I suggest, the minds of many in the world today. The series already includes a book on Epictetus, namely, 'Exploring the Way of Epictetus', in which I allow Epictetus to explain in detail the way of the ...

You And What Army? How to Neutralize Conflict and Negotiate Justice For the Totally Outgunned, Inwardly Timid, Burnt Out or Socially Defunct by Lisa Bracken (New Flight Books newflightbooks.com) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

From newflightbooks.com: In a world fraught with conflict - sometimes hostile conflict - where access to justice can be politically, even physically barred, negotiation can be a powerfully viable avenue toward resolution. Negotiation, however, implies a compromising process of 'give and take' from those who are relatively equitably situated. For those in gravely unbalanced situations and facing enormous odds, rebalancing the field demands a greatly enhanced degree of insight, planning and persistence... evolving adversaries and conditions while simultaneously securing vital interests. With the capacity to be summoned toward a long-range campaign, negotiation, as a tool of equity and transformation, can fulfill an extraordinarily targeted and disciplined role in illuminating truth; paving access toward justice; and, facilitating sound social evolution, all the while serving short-term needs. Developed in such a way, negotiation demands broad situational analysis; the design and ...

NEXT 2020: Avoiding Reality Choosing the Wrong One (Trump Card Book 7) by W Lawrence Lipton 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 13 hours ago

"The Emperor's New Clothes is a classic tale of how people will ignore the evidence of their own eyes, ignore reality, rather than face the condemnation of others too fearful of public opinion to address reality."Those words were published on 8 April 2017, as the title of chapter 5 in book one of this series -- entitled: "No Trump Card: The First Fifty-six Days After Babylon the Great City Fell". They served as a warning to what was to come, and in December 2019, the world witnessed those who praise the Emperor's Clothes (the impeachment propagandist assertions) defend a case with no clearly defined charges or any factual evidence which could be easily enumerated. But, while they condemned Trump's for incompetence, stupidity, and dishonesty, within 30 minutes they were also taking credit for and boasting about his USMCA. Espouse the lies of Schiff and Nadler, but recognize the accomplishments in trade relations and improvements that will strengthen the economy.

The Eight pillars of prosperity by James Allen 4.2 Stars (60 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation. Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realization of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to, nay it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue. The moral virtues are the foundation and support of prosperity as they are the soul of greatness. They endure forever, and all the works of man which endure are built upon them. Without them there is neither strength, stability, nor substantial reality, but only ephemeral dreams. To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful and free.

Death Over Life: Secret of Revelation: A Prophecy of America’s Destruction by W. Lawrence Lipton (Kindle Direct) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

Published concurrent with the Crimean takeover, Death Over Life correctly predicted the Obama response, and the result of America's 2014 Midterm Election. Looking forward from its March 2014 publication, it foresaw 2015/16 as the next period of interest. As with many books written over the author's nearly 40-year writing career, this work explores the possibility that there is a rational basis for ancient prophecy, one which was lost during the period of superstition which marked the medieval era. In his analysis, the author adopts an open-minded scientific attitude to the possibility that there is a basis for long-range predictive analysis of human and environmental interactions which has been classified by properties associated with the term "prophecy." The author rejects religious "End-of-Times" forecasts of global annihilation and treats the "End-of-Times" concept as simply meaning a period of significant and lasting change.

The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.6 Stars (37 Reviews)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

"The Romance of the Forest", first published in 1791, is a gothic classic, a style popularised by writers like Ann Radcliffe. They were often set in castles or great houses, involved a mystery, supernatural elements, a 'damsel in distress' and typically an overpowering male figure. They were very popular during the Romantic period of British literature. Rich in allusions to aesthetic theory and to travel literature, "The Romance of the Forest" is also concerned with current philosophical debate and examines systems of thought central to the intellectual life of late eighteenth-century Europe. Set in a Roman Catholic Europe of violent passions and extreme oppression, the novel follows the fate of its heroine Adeline, who is mysteriously placed under the protection of a family fleeing Paris for debt. They take refuge in a ruined abbey in south-eastern France, where sinister relics of the past - a skeleton, a manuscript, and a rusty dagger - are discovered in concealed rooms. Adeline ...

ON EVOLUTION BY COMPETITION. THE LAW OF LIFE, KNOWLEDGE AND THE UNIVERSE. by Ray Harvey Price verified 8 hours ago

FORWARD EVOLUTIONARY TRUTH NEEDS TO PREVAIL FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE. This thought-provoking book contends competition is the fundamental of Evolution. Originating from our cosmos, where force yields to greater force causing domination. That we evolved from that system of competitive energy. Ray Harvey contends, that not only did humans need to win physical fights in the war of nature, but those more ably evolved with abilities to keep the team together, had more chance of keeping the team alive. Harvey contends, 'good' and all it embodies, evolved out over millions of years, because it improves co-operation, enhancing the chances of survival. That 'good' is still a force today, because it gives those understanding human groups, more chance of having an elevated platform of well-being. Harvey argues this well-being is not a class, culture, religious or colour privilege, but a matter of truth and honesty. Based on the simplest Evolutionary principle. That is, 'treat each other how ...

The Pink Doughnut Phenomenon: Corporate America's Attack On Traditional Masculinity by JD McGuigan 4.5 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

The American Dream of working 40 years for one company was never an appealing proposition, but it was once a reliable and respectable way to secure a prosperous today and tomorrow, for oneself and a once healthy family unit. Sadly it is no longer reliable nor lucrative, and there is very little incentive to succeed. When you render most women incompatible and unsuitable, thereby also removing children from a man's aspirations, why should he go to work everyday? This situation continues to deteriorate rapidly. The fix is in, and while work used to be a refuge from political activism, today Corporate America is fully in on it. The corporate world of 9-5 is designed to break down a man's masculine spirit, in a western civilization overrun by the politically correct hysteria of identity politics and third wave feminism, which has compromised Corporate America to form an unholy power structure of ruthless misandry. Gillette, AngelSoft, and Dove are among the many corporations who've ...

FROM THE PREFACE OF THE AUTHOR: "This book comes from the reflections and experience of more than forty years spent in court. Aside from the practice of my profession, the topics I have treated are such as have always held my interest and inspired a taste for books that discuss the human machine with its manifestations and the causes of its varied activity. I have endeavored to present the latest scientific thought and investigation bearing upon the question of human conduct. I do not pretend to be an original investigator, nor an authority on biology, psychology or philosophy. I have simply been a student giving the subject such attention as I could during a fairly busy life. No doubt some of the scientific conclusions stated are still debatable and may finally be rejected. The scientific mind holds opinions tentatively and is always ready to reexamine, modify or discard as new evidence comes to light. Naturally in a book of this sort there are many references to the human mind and ...

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 ...

The labors of those who have edited these volumes are not only finished as far as this work extends, but if three-score years and ten be the usual limit of human life, all our earthly endeavors must end in the near future. After faithfully collecting material for several years, and making the best selections our judgment has dictated, we are painfully conscious of many imperfections the critical reader will perceive. But since stereotype plates will not reflect our growing sense of perfection, the lavish praise of friends as to the merits of these pages will have its antidote in the defects we ourselves discover. We may however without egotism express the belief that this volume will prove specially interesting in having a large number of contributors from England, France, Canada and the United States, giving personal experiences and the progress of legislation in their respective localities.

Female Suffrage by Susan Fenimore Cooper (GIANLUCA) Price verified 6 hours ago

"... The natural position of woman is clearly, to a limited degree, a subordinate one. Such it has always been throughout the world, in all ages, and in many widely different conditions of society. There are three conclusive reasons why we should expect it to continue so for the future. First. Woman in natural physical strength is so greatly inferior to man that she is entirely in his power, quite incapable of self- defense, trusting to his generosity for protection. In savage life this great superiority of physical strength makes man the absolute master, woman the abject slave. And, although every successive step in civilisation lessens the distance between the sexes, and renders the situation of woman safer and easier, still, in no state of society, however highly cultivated, has perfect equality yet existed. This difference in physical strength must, in itself, always prevent such perfect equality, since woman is compelled every day of her life to appeal to man for protection, and ...

How to Get on in the World - A Ladder to Practical Success by Major A.r. Calhoon 4.4 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

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. Keep your temper. Employ leisure in study, and always have some work in hand. Be punctual and methodical in business, and never procrastinate. Never be in a hurry. 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.

Weary Warriors: Power, Knowledge, and the Invisible Wounds of Soldiers by Pamela Moss (Berghahn Books) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 23 hours ago

As seen in military documents, medical journals, novels, films, television shows, and memoirs, soldiers' invisible wounds are not innate cracks in individual psyches that break under the stress of war. Instead, the generation of weary warriors is caught up in wider social and political networks and institutions -- families, activist groups, government bureaucracies, welfare state programs -- mediated through a military hierarchy, psychiatry rooted in mind-body sciences, and various cultural constructs of masculinity. This book offers a history of military psychiatry from the American Civil War to the latest Afghanistan conflict. The authors trace the effects of power and knowledge in relation to the emotional and psychological trauma that shapes soldiers' bodies, minds, and souls, developing an extensive account of the emergence, diagnosis, and treatment of soldiers' invisible wounds.

Making Moral Judgments: Psychological Perspectives on Morality, Ethics, and Decision-Making by Donelson Forsyth (Routledge) 4.2 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 23 hours ago

This fascinating new book examines diversity in moral judgements, drawing on recent work in social, personality, and evolutionary psychology, reviewing the factors that influence the moral judgments people make. Why do reasonable people so often disagree when drawing distinctions between what is morally right and wrong?

Examining the sources of this variety, the author expertly explores morality using ethics position theory, alongside other theoretical perspectives in moral psychology, and shows how it can relate to contemporary social issues from abortion to premarital sex to human rights. Also featuring a chapter on applied contexts, using the theory of ethics positions to gain insights into the moral choices and actions of individuals, groups, and organizations in educational, research, political, ...

Cow Care in Hindu Animal Ethics (The Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Series) by Kenneth R. Valpey (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 23 minutes ago

This open access book provides both a broad perspective and a focused examination of cow care as a subject of widespread ethical concern in India, and increasingly in other parts of the world. In the face of what has persisted as a highly charged political issue over cow protection in India, intellectual space must be made to bring the wealth of Indian traditional ethical discourse to bear on the realities of current human-animal relationships, particularly those of humans with cows. Dharma, yoga, and bhakti paradigms serve as starting points for bringing Hindu -- particularly Vaishnava Hindu -- animal ethics into conversation with contemporary Western animal ethics. The author argues that a culture of bhakti -- the inclusive, empathetic practice of spirituality centered in Krishna as the beloved cowherd of Vraja -- can complement recently developed ethics-of-care thinking to create a solid basis for sustaining all kinds of cow care communities.

A Man of High Character: How and Why a Christian Should Live by Mitchell White 4.8 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Limited Time Only - Special Pricing for eBook. The call of a Christian is to aim for righteousness, yet so few of us ask, "What is right? What is the ideal that we ought to aim for?" Ecclesiastes states there is a time for all things: "A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing... a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace." Yet, it is a rare man who will dare to ask, "When should I love and when should I hate? When should I forgive and when should I go to war?" Most prefer the simplicity of always choosing one, but the Christian is committed to pursuing righteousness. This book is a fierce dive into the depths of righteousness. It is not for those who prefer simplicity and easy living, but for those who are willing to bear the responsibility of righteousness.

Who Will Be the Next President?: A Guide to the U.S. Presidential Election System (Springerbriefs in Law) by Alexander S. Belenky (Springer) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book addresses the peculiarities of the current presidential election system not yet addressed in other publications. It argues that any rules for electing a President that may have a chance to replace the current ones should provide an equal representation of states as equal members of the Union, and of the nation as a whole. This book analyzes the National Popular Vote plan and shows that this plan may violate the Supreme Court decisions on the equality of votes cast in statewide popular elections held to choose state electors. That is, the National Popular Vote plan may violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The book proposes a new election system in which the will of the states and the will of the nation as a whole are determined by direct popular elections for President and Vice President in the 50 states and in D.C. This system a) would elect President a candidate who is the choice of both the ...
