The Consolation of Philosophy: Translation by H. R. James by Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius (Lulu.com) 4.0 Stars (24 Reviews)    Price verified 56 minutes ago

Consolation of Philosophy (Latin: Consolatio Philosophiae) is a philosophical work by Boethius, written around the year 524. It has been described as the single most important and influential work in the West on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity, and is also the last great Western work of the Classical Period. Anicius Manlius Severinus Boëthius, commonly called Boethius (c. 480-524 or 525 AD), was a philosopher of the early 6th century. He was born in Rome to an ancient and prominent family which included emperors Petronius Maximus and Olybrius and many consuls. His father, Flavius Manlius Boethius, was consul in 487 after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor. Boethius, of the noble Anicia family, entered public life at a young age and was already a senator by the age of 25. Boethius himself was consul in 510 in the kingdom of the Ostrogoths. In 522 he saw his two sons become consuls. Boethius was imprisoned and eventually executed by King Theodoric the Great, who suspected him of conspiring with the Eastern Roman Empire. While jailed, Boethius composed his Consolation of Philosophy, a philosophical treatise on fortune, death, and other issues. The Consolation became one of the most popular and influential works of the Middle Ages.

Walden, Walking & Civil Disobedience (Including The Life of Henry David Thoreau) by Henry David Thoreau (Musaicum Books) 4.4 Stars (2,383 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built in the woods near Walden Pond, Massachusetts. Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. Part memoir, part personal quest, the book is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, where Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Walking is a transcendental essay in which Thoreau talks about the importance of nature to mankind, and how people cannot survive without nature, physically, mentally, and spiritually, yet we seem to be spending more and more time entrenched by society. For Thoreau walking is a self-reflective spiritual act that occurs only when you are away from society, that allows you to learn about who you are, and find other aspects of yourself that have been chipped away by society. Civil Disobedience or Resistance to Civil Government is an essay by Thoreau in which he argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, surveyor, and historian. A leading transcendentalist, Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Firm Denial by Licia Flynn (Klar Marketing Communications) 4.2 Stars (15 Reviews)    Price verified 24 hours ago

Firm Denial, a follow-up to Firm Resolve, is a stand-alone novella. It's been years since Lana Hayaak, the exotic wife of a corrupt executive, disappeared. Daniel Petersen, a quirky detective, is determined to solve this mystery because he suspects that the man last seen with her, is lying. After all, Aaron Walker's version of events is an entirely different story. Excerpt: Two thin, but heavily wrinkled migrant workers rifled through mountains of garbage somewhere in northwest China. Working tirelessly in the heat while immune to the scent of rotting sewage, they occasionally paused to swat bloated flies or wipe drops of sweat from their leathery foreheads. The men persevered in the harsh conditions until seeing the soft contours of a human arm amid the sharp edges of rubble. "What's this?" the middle-aged worker exclaimed. His eyes widened. The older man asked, "Is it a body?" "Yes, a woman. The worker knelt down to analyze the naked woman. "Yeah, she's a laowai." "Indeed, look at her fair complexion." "Why is she here?" "She must be a prostitute?" "From Kazakhstan?" "Maybe, she looks foreign yet Asiatic." The younger laborer nodded and suggested, "She could be Russian." "Is she alive?" The older migrant worker's hands trembled and his forehead furrowed. The younger worker shook his head. "I don't think so." He leaned closer to observe her more carefully and analyzed her wrist, searching for a pulse. "She's not breathing. Look at the bruises, laceration, and burn marks." The older man nodded with disgust. "Rich people and their perversions." "And they look down on us!" "Some things never change," lamented the older man who had survived the Cultural Revolution, the Great Leap Forward, and extreme poverty. "What should we do with her body?" asked the younger man. "Add it to the pile for burning," the old man responded with a heavy sigh.

Du Bois: The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois (Musaicum Books) 4.7 Stars (2,695 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

"The Souls of Black Folk" is a cornerstone of African-American literary history. Published in 1903, this seminal book of essays incited many white supremacists who discredited it as "dangerous" and "imaginative." Drawing upon his own personal experiences of racism, Du Bois argued that African Americans are forced to wear a "veil" of color line, that is, they are forced to live their race every single day of their lives. This is why a strong political Black leadership must emerge from within the community and continue the fight for their rights. A century later, African Americans are still fighting these personal and political battles against racism and Du Bois' words have never run as true as they are now. W. E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, author, and editor. He was the first African American to earn a doctorate and to become a professor of history, sociology and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of the co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and a prominent the leader of the Niagara Movement, a group of African-American activists who wanted equal rights for blacks.

The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life by Émile Durkheim (e-artnow) 3.6 Stars (38 Reviews)    Price verified one day 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.
