In a vivid, contemporary style he surprises us with entertaining quotations; he moves swiftly from thought to thought, often digressing from an idea only to return to it triumphantly, having caught up with it elsewhere, and in so doing leads the reader along the criss-cross paths of a journey of discovery. Montaigne set out to discover himself. What he discovered instead was the human race.

That there was need of a book on the subject, of which this treats, will be evidenced to those who examine its contents. Whether this book meets the need, it is for those to decide who its readers are. Because of the obvious gain in lying in times of extremity, and because of the manifest peril or cost of truth-telling in an emergency, attempts have been made, by interested or prejudiced persons, all along the ages, to reconcile the general duty of adhering to an absolute standard of right, with the special inducements, or temptations, to depart from that standard for the time being. It has been claimed by many that the results of a lie would, under certain circumstances, justify the use of a lie.

How are serial killers made? Perhaps, if someone could answer this question, then the police and the community would be able to prevent people from killing in the first place. As it is, this question remains unanswered though many different hypothesis are put forward by the experts. Until a method for preventing crimes before they are committed is developed then all the authorities can do is be reactive in the case of serial killers. This is of course exactly what plays into the hands of those who commit such heinous crimes. Being a concerned citizen though is certainly a weapon that we can all employ in the fight against serial killers. In this book, you will discover 7 killers who stopped at nothing to feel invincible. From those that had problems in their childhood to those that had a loving parent. Those that had a certain incident that set them off to those that just did it to see if they could get away with it – not all serial killers can be pigeon holed unfortunately for law enforcement officials.

Genre: Philosophy
Publish Date: 30 December 1899

Seller: Public Domain

Beyond Good and Evil is a book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting Judeo-Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectivistic nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. In it he exposes the deficiencies of those usually called "philosophers" and identifies the qualities of the "new philosophers" imagination, self-assertion, danger, originality, and the "creation of values".

The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes. The Apology begins with Socrates saying he does not know if the men of Athens (his jury) have been persuaded by his accusers. This first sentence is crucial to the theme of the entire speech. Indeed, in the Apology Socrates will suggest that philosophy begins with a sincere admission of ignorance; he later clarifies this, dramatically stating that whatever wisdom he has, comes from his knowledge that he knows nothing.

The true story, Defining Moments: A Father’s Journey Into His Son’s Addiction, drives readers into an Oxy deal intended to save a young man’s life, walks them through the history of the father who would perpetrate it, climaxes with the disastrous immediate consequences, and ultimately, reveals the healing of an entire family. This story has drama and action, but it also has some real education: The drugs our kids do are different than the drugs we did. Even drug-savvy parents are unprepared for what’s tempting today’s teens. In 2008, half a million people used Oxycodone for non-medical purposes for the first time. In 2009, one in ten high school seniors abused narcotic painkillers. Today, the numbers are even higher, as Oxy remains one of the only illicit drugs experiencing an increase in popularity and use, and death from drugs has surpassed even auto accidents as a cause of death in the US.

What the second duty is no one has as yet discovered. Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attractiveness of others. If the poor only had profiles there would be no difficulty in solving the problem of poverty. Those who see any difference between soul and body have neither. A really well-made buttonhole is the only link between Art and Nature. Religions die when they are proved to be true. Science is the record of dead religions. The well-bred contradict other people.

An examination on the cold, hard realities of maintaining power, Machiavelli's The Prince is both a meditation on history and a philosophical guide to politics. Machiavelli examines the successes and failures of all sorts of societies, criticizing the idealized concept of a morally pure leader in favor of a more realist approach. But is it really encouraging amorality, or is it a satire against the abuse of power? Rarely has a book been interpreted in so many contradictory ways and yet remained so influential.

MURDER IN THE FAMILY. MURDER BY DADS, MOMS, KIDS & SPOUSES.       The family home is supposed to be a place where family members find a safe haven from the stress of outside life. A place where they feel protected and loved. Yet for many this is simply not the case.       The true stories in this short book demonstrate that the family environment can be a very dangerous place indeed. Not just for children suffering from child abuse, but also for mothers, fathers, wives and husbands. In the United States, one of the most treacherous places for a woman is in her own home. Women may be afraid of strangers, but it's a husband, a lover, a boyfriend, or someone they know who is most likely to hurt them and they are at the highest risk of suffering violence or murder when they are divorcing or separating from a partner. Men too can suffer abuse from their wife or partner but the difference in physical size and strength puts a woman at greater risk than a man.       For children, the greatest danger is not an unknown stranger, but their immediate families.       Is your family safe?

Along with his critique of the civilized world, Thoreau examines other issues afflicting man in society, ranging from economy and reading to solitude and higher laws.

Just as the worst slave-owners were those who were kind to their slaves, and so prevented the horror of the system being realised by those who suffered from it, and understood by those who contemplated it, so, in the present state of things in England, the people who do most harm are the people who try to do most good" while preserving the system.

All natural phenomena affect the activities of man. It has been repeatedly observed that the number of crimes of assault and murder increases in the summer months and fluctuates with extreme heat or a cooler temperature. The nervous system of man is responsive to all sorts of physical and psychological influences, and criminologists take these into account in considering crime, as doctors take them into account in treating disease. Man is influenced by substantially all the things that affect other structures and by many things that do not.

The Problems of Philosophy (1912) is one of Bertrand Russell's attempts to create a brief and accessible guide to the problems of philosophy. Focusing on problems he believes will provoke positive and constructive discussion, Russell concentrates on knowledge rather than metaphysics: If it is uncertain that external objects exist, how can we then have knowledge of them but by probability. There is no reason to doubt the existence of external objects simply because of sense data. Russell guides the reader through his famous 1910 distinction between "knowledge by acquaintance and knowledge by description" and introduces important theories of Plato, Aristotle, René Descartes, David Hume, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, G. W. F. Hegel and others to lay the foundation for philosophical inquiry by general readers and scholars alike.

This is a famous but very controversial piece by Bertrand Russell. It was a lecture delivered in 1927 at National Secular Society, London. Later in 1957 it was part of a book with the same title and reached international fame. He examines one by one several highly regarded arguments for the existence (or necessity) of God. His main point however is the possibility of morality based on another principle than God. It is quite a challenging reading and one we must all face, regardless of our belief or lack of it, thereof. Enjoy!

Hume's comprehensive effort to form an observationally grounded study of human nature employs John Locke's empiric principles to construct a theory of knowledge from which to evaluate metaphysical ideas. A key to modern studies of eighteenth-century Western philosophy, the Treatise considers numerous classic philosophical issues, including causation, existence, freedom and necessity, and morality.

In this interesting piece; the author argues that Richard Dawkins has failed in his attempts to put a good rational argument for atheism. The professor uses the rather feeble approach of setting up straw men only to dismantle them with great relish. These repeated mischaracterizations of faith do the atheist camp no favours. All it does is betray a vitriolic personal agenda. It is argued that The God delusion has helped to perpetuate two major modern myths. First that religion and science contradict each other and second that Theists are unthinking drones. If Aristotle, Augustine, Plotinus, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, Einstein, Collins and thousands of other genius's are unthinking drones -this would make Richard Dawkins intelligence amoeba like. A rational case for Theism is proposed.

Poet-Philosopher and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan's Wheel of Life Mantra is a poetic expression of the Bhavacakra, an ancient mandala that presents the most significant wisdom teachings of Buddhism. It is used to contemplate the causes and conditions of suffering, and as a guide to non-dual wisdom, loving kindness, compassion, and equanimity. The Wheel is constructed of four concentric circles around a hub, each circle representing different areas of human experience and awareness. Beginning with the innermost circle and moving outward they represent dimensions of anguish, consequences, psychological experience, and the workings of consciousness. The wheel itself is an expression of the essential Buddhist teachings of no-self (nothing exists as a separate entity), impermanence (everything changes), and co-dependent origination (all phenomena arise simultaneously in reality in the present moment). The Wheel, like all Buddhist teachings, is an encouragement for finding the way to peace, love, and light.

From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of the Prince, in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".

The strangest figure that meets us in the annals of Oriental thought is that of Confucius. To the popular mind he is the founder of a religion, and yet he has nothing in common with the great religious teachers of the East. We think of Siddartha, the founder of Buddhism, as the very impersonation of romantic asceticism, enthusiastic self-sacrifice, and faith in the things that are invisible. Zoroaster is the friend of God, talking face to face with the Almighty, and drinking wisdom and knowledge from the lips of Omniscience. Mohammed is represented as snatched up into heaven, where he receives the Divine communication which he is bidden to propagate with fire and sword throughout the world. These great teachers lived in an atmosphere of the supernatural. They spoke with the authority of inspired prophets. They brought the unseen world close to the minds of their disciples. They spoke positively of immortality, of reward or punishment beyond the grave. The present life they despised, the future was to them everything in its promised satisfaction. The teachings of Confucius were of a very different sort. Throughout his whole writings he has not even mentioned the name of God. He declined to discuss the question of immortality. When he was asked about spiritual beings, he remarked, “If we cannot even know men, how can we know spirits?”

The proposal gives a wonderful glimpse into Campbell’s pedagogical philosophy, but also into his approach to his chosen field. Included is one of the most-requested downloads from the Joseph Campbell Foundation's website: the reading list that Campbell used in that Introduction to Mythology course. <br /><br />These pieces, along with nine other essays ranging in subject from the numerology implicit in the Goddess mythologies to the erotic irony of modern novelist Thomas Mann, is included in the collection <i>The Mythic Dimension</i>.

It is very difficult for someone who has not experienced the terror of an abusive relationship to comprehend such a life. Those on the outside listen to the horror stories of emergency room visits, terrifying ordeals in the middle of the night, and frightened children forced to witness the violence. And sooner or later, one of the most commonly asked questions is verbalized. "If things are so bad, why don't you just leave?" Has that question ever crossed your mind? You may have a friend or family member who has finally mustered the courage to tell you physical violence has been an ongoing reality in her marriage. She tries to communicate her fears of further injury, her concerns for the safety of the children, and her anxieties about leaving. You pray with her, counsel her to seek safety, and do your best to provide resources to assist. Yet you encounter a puzzling and continual hesitation. What's going on? "Why Women Stay in Abusive Relationships" was written to answer such questions. Contained within its pages are some of the typical reasons women are so reluctant to leave an abusive relationship. While by no means an exhaustive list, the book does provide those on the outside with a glimpse into the world of relationship violence. And by understanding the complexities of the struggles battered women face, readers will be better equipped to offer insightful, compassionate, and effective counsel and intercession.

This selection of his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last work, Parerga and Paralipomena. He depicts humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil, each individual absolutely free within a Godless world in which art, morality and self-awareness are our only salvation. This innovative and pessimistic view proved powerfully influential upon philosophy and art.

Søren Kierkegaard & David F Swenson
Genre: Philosophy
Publish Date: 14 December 2012
Publisher: Simon Yee
Seller: Simon Yee

The thought of the prolific 19th century Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) continues to interest and impress many. Kierkegaard has been interpreted and re-interpreted over the decades; as a devout Lutheran, an existentialist, a postmodern prophet, and many more. His works have exerted a tremendous influence on contemporary thought. Kierkegaard is well known for his aesthetic "pseudonymous" works, such as Either/Or, Fear and Trembling, Philosophical Fragments, and The Concept of Anxiety, and these works claim a pseudonym as its author. Accompanying these works, however, Kierkegaard authored several ethical-religious discourses written under his own name, as well as longer sustained ones in his later work. He called them discourses not sermons because Kierkegaard believes he has no authority to preach; but only to help others enlighten or 'edify' or 'upbuild' themselves. Kierkegaard's aim for these discourses was to make his readers aware of the religiousness of Christianity. The first discouse, "Man's Need of God Constitutes his Highest Perfection" examines the nature of faith, God’s gifts and prayer. The discourse was written and published in August 1844, a few months after The Concept of Anxiety. "What it Means to Seek God: On the Occasion of a Confessional Service" examines wonder, stillness, and seeking God. The discourse was written and published in April 1845, a day before the publication of Stages on Life's Way. Scholars contend that this discourse is a complement to Stages' "In Vino Veritas" banquet speech on erotic love.

Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future

Genre: Philosophy
Publish Date: 07 December 2009
Publisher: The Project Gutenberg
Seller: Scott Reid

Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

Genre: Family & Relationships
Publish Date: 13 December 2008
Publisher: The Project Gutenberg
Seller: Scott Reid

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. It premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 21 December 1879, having been published earlier that month. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint." Its ideas can also be seen as having a wider application: Michael Meyer argues that the play's theme is not women's rights, but rather "the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she really is and to strive to become that person." In a speech given to the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in 1898, Ibsen insisted that he "must disclaim the honor of having consciously worked for the women's rights movement," since he wrote "without any conscious thought of making propaganda," his task having been "the description of humanity."

Richard Lighthouse
Genre: True Crime
Publish Date: 19 March 2017
Publisher: Richard Lighthouse
Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

Rev2A - Brief list of 34 government patents are provided on inventions achieving some form of mind control. This list is just an introduction – there are many more inventions that are referenced from this initial list, and that can be found on google patent search, or on the US Patent Office (USPO) website. What is not covered in this list, are thousands of patents that have been issued, but were hidden for “national security” issues. The Federation of Scientists has a recent tally of more than 5,135 patents that are subject to a secrecy order in the United States. Some of the patents on this list were issued under the CIA's MK-Ultra project. This secret program performed grisly electroshock and torture methods on hundreds of unsuspecting CIA victims from the 1950's to 1970's. A lawsuit was filed in Canada representing some of the victims, and the CIA admitted the program's existence. One victim of Dr Ewen Cameron's grisly treatment was deliberately overdosed with insulin and placed into a coma for 21 days, where they severely electroshocked him many times – erasing his conscious memory. He didn't know his name, his family, or anything about himself. Then repetitive messages were used, over hundreds of hours, to “reprogram” his personality. Dr Cameron even bragged that he could turn an ordinary person into a vicious serial killer, using these methods. This is the Manchurian Candidate method that was described in the book of the same title. There is evidence that this CIA program continues today, under a different name, in spite of Congressional orders to shut it down. The CIA continues to fund research and pursue political targets using mind control. One possible recent example, is when Russian leader Putin, recently dismissed 18 senior military generals – this may have occurred because these Generals had been compromised by subliminal targeting. This is a new technology that targets people while sleeping and employs specific frequencies (carrier frequency approx. 3900 MHz) and techniques using geostationary satellites. When these satellites were designed in the 1980's, only the US military had a signal analyzer that could reach to 3900 MHz - which made it very difficult to detect. Now, many commercial analyzers can detect this signal, and countermeasures can be developed. A number of recent government whistleblowers have described this new technology, and its ability to elicit specific statements and responses from targeted persons. Although it cannot be called complete mind control, these subliminal messaging systems apparently have the ability to elicit specific statements from someone, without physically touching them, and this is a disturbing development. This material is relevant to Targeted Individuals. Four symptoms of subliminal mind control, which generally takes weeks to months to alter a personality; (1) sleeping more than 12 hours per day - messaging is done while napping or asleep, (2). Development of a split personality, (3) Statements and beliefs that are clearly out of character for the person. (4) Arguementative behavior. Again, the best subliminal protection is repeating the phrase, "I will only react to constructive suggestions." Revision 2A – added material from Dr Daniel Lebowitz, M.D., Presentation submitted to the Senate Hearing on “The State of Civil and Human Rights in the United States,” Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - which provides specific research on Subliminal Mind Control.

The Protagoras, like several of the Dialogues , is put into the mouth of Socrates, who describes a conversation which had taken place between himself and the great Sophist at the house of Callias. Lombardo and Bell have translated this important early dialogue on virtue, wisdom, and the nature of Sophistic teaching into an idiom remarkable for its liveliness and subtlety. Michael Frede has provided a substantial introduction that illuminates the dialogue's perennial interest, its Athenian political background, and the particular difficulties and ironic nuances of its argument.
