This eBook edition of "Sentimental Education" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
Sentimental Education is an autobiographical novel. The story focuses on the romantic life of a young man at the time of the French Revolution of 1848. The novel describes the life of a young man (Frédéric Moreau) living through the revolution of 1848 and the founding of the Second French Empire, and his love for an older woman. Flaubert based many of the protagonist's experiences (including the romantic passion) on his own life. The novel's tone is by turns ironic and pessimistic; it occasionally lampoons French society. The main character, Frédéric, often gives himself to romantic flights of fancy. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) was an influential French writer who was perhaps the leading exponent of literary realism of his country. He is known especially for his debut novel, Madame Bovary and for his scrupulous devotion to his style and ...

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on May 23, 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881-82 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality -- as seen in Long John Silver -- unusual for children's literature now and then. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders. The Mysterious Island (French: L'Île mystérieuse) is ...

What is the point of studying philosophy?
And what is philosophy, anyway? Isn't it just a bunch of crazy people who think that reality doesn't exist and we can't know for sure whether we are conscious? Moreover, since there are many competing philosophies out there, is there some way to actually determine the truth, or does one's life philosophy always end up being just a matter of opinion?
In this engaging, informative, and often lively book, Tom Blackstone seeks to answer these as well as many more important philosophical questions. Drawing upon its history from Ancient Greece to modern times and through an analysis of its central questions, Blackstone argues that philosophy can provide us with objective knowledge of the truth and is of vital importance to human life.
Philosophy: What It Is and Why We Need It Includes:
Philosophy and Religion: How human beings first created religion to make sense of the world around them. Why religion was so valuable in ancient times and yet ...
