The Nicomachean Ethics is the Aristotle's best-known work on ethics. The work, which plays a pre-eminent role in defining Aristotelian ethics, consists of ten books, originally separate scrolls, and is understood to be based on notes from his lectures at the Lyceum. The theme of the work is a Socratic question previously explored in the works of Plato, Aristotle's friend and teacher, of how men should best live. In his Metaphysics, Aristotle described how Socrates, the friend and teacher of Plato, had turned philosophy to human questions, whereas pre-Socratic philosophy had only been theoretical.

Capital by Karl Marx is a foundational theoretical text in materialist philosophy, economics and politics.

Tales From the Mall is a great book. It s touching and emotional and part of a new form of literary storytelling. It s worth reading, worth loving. James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces
Ewan Morrison captures beautifully the point at which anecdote becomes urban myth and reportage slides into fiction. This feels like a really important step towards a literature of the 21st century. Claire Armistead, Books Editor, The Guardian
Morrison continues Ballard's tradition of locating menace beneath the sleekness and shine of postindustrial life. You also learn a lot along the way. A truly interesting book. - Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X

William McDougall was an early 20th century psychologist who wrote a number of highly influential textbooks, and was particularly important in the development of the theory of instinct and of social psychology in the English-speaking world. He was an opponent of behaviourism and stands somewhat outside the mainstream of the development of Anglo-American psychological thought in the first half of the 20th century; but his work was very well known and respected among lay people.

Aristotle (384-322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."

There are an infinite number of poignant dramas... infinite horrors and heroines and tragic figures and heroic figures and demonic and angelic people. There are all of the characters beyond imagining, and they are all God. This is the way God continues not just experiencing Himself, but experiences Himself as multiple.
We are all God, each acting our part, but, being human, forgetting who we are and fully identifying with our characters. The part of ourselves who is God, She knows She is God still. She knows She's God... playing all these parts.
Life, Experience, That Which Is is perfect in its seeming imperfection. It is fantastic and wonderful. Ultimately, as Sathya Sai Baba said, All of Reality is God's divine leela or play. More than anything else, Existence is fun.
