How To Think More About Sex, Alain De Botton
1 Alain De Botton How To Think More About Sex
MacMillan 234597 Great Britain 2012 1447202279 / 9781447202271 Softcover Very Good Condition In this rigorous and supremely honest book Alain de Botton helps us navigate the intimate and exciting - yet often confusing and difficult - experience that is sex. Few of us tend to feel we're entirely normal when it comes to sex, and what we're supposed to be feeling rarely matches up with the reality. This book argues that 21st-century sex is ultimately fated to be a balancing act between love and desire, and adventure and commitment. Covering topics that include lust, fetishism, adultery and pornography, Alain de Botton frankly articulates the dilemmas of modern sexuality, offering insights and consolation to help us think more deeply and wisely about the sex we are, or aren't, having. One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched May 2012: How to Stay Sane by Philippa Perry How to Find Fulfilling Work by Roman Krznaric How to Worry Less About Money by John Armstrong How to Change the World by John-Paul Flintoff How to Thrive in the Digital Age by Tom Chatfield How to Think More About Sex by Alain de Botton 142 pages.

Freedom Evolves, Daniel C. Dennett
3 Daniel C. Dennett Freedom Evolves
Viking 226806 USA 2003 First Edition 0670031860 / 9780670031863 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Can there be freedom and free will in a deterministic world? Renowned philosopher Daniel Dennett emphatically answers "yes!" Using an array of provocative formulations, Dennett sets out to show how we alone among the animals have evolved minds that give us free will and morality. Weaving a richly detailed narrative, Dennett explains in a series of strikingly original arguments-drawing upon evolutionary biology, cognitive neuroscience, economics, and philosophy-that far from being an enemy of traditional explorations of freedom, morality, and meaning, the evolutionary perspective can be an indispensable ally. In Freedom Evolves, Dennett seeks to place ethics on the foundation it deserves: a realistic, naturalistic, potentially unified vision of our place in nature. 347 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

University of California 226833 USA 1984 0520052951 / 9780520052956 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket This book provides a critical overview of the entirety of Marcuse's work and discusses his enduring importance. Kellner had extensive interviews with Marcuse and provides hitherto unknown information about his road to Marxism, his relations with Heidegger and Existentialism, his involvement with the Frankfurt School, and his reasons for appropriating Freud in the 1950s. In addition Kellner provides a novel interpretation of the genesis and structure of Marcuse's theory of one-dimensional society, of the development of his political theory, and of the role of aesthetics in his critical theory.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale, James B. South [Editor]
11 James B. South [Editor] Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale
Open Court 234354 USA 2004 0812695313 / 9780812695311 Softcover Very Good Condition Twenty-three essays by young professional philosophers examine crucial ethical and metaphysical aspects of the Buffyverse (the world of Buffy). Though the show already attracted much scholarly attention, this is the first book to fully disinter the intellectual issues. Designed by Whedon as a multilevel story with most of its meanings deeply buried in heaps of heavy irony, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has replaced The X-Files as the show that explains to Americans the nature of the powerful forces of evil continually threatening to surge into our world of everyday decency and overwhelm it. In the tradition of the classic horror films Buffy the Vampire Slayer addresses ethical issues that have long fascinated audiences. This book draws out the ethical and metaphysical lessons from a pop-culture phenomenon. 335 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Film::Film and TV; Film, Radio & Television; Philosophy. ISBN: 0812695313. ISBN/EAN: 9780812695311. Inventory No: 234354. Paperback

The Secret Power of Beauty: Why Happiness is in the Eye of the Beholder, John Armstrong
12 John Armstrong The Secret Power of Beauty: Why Happiness is in the Eye of the Beholder
Penguin Books 232329 Great Britain 2005 0140294724 / 9780140294729 Softcover Very Good Condition The notion of beauty is elusive: we love the things we find beautiful, and yet we are inarticulate when we try to communicate this love, or describe its essence. We are aware of people, paintings and houses that are universally recognized as beautiful, and yet we know also that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In defining beauty and our response to it, we are often caught between the concrete and the sublime. We wish to categorize beauty, to clearly label its parts, and yet we wish also to celebrate its mysterious and at times mythical power. Armstrong's response is a discursive and graceful journey through various and complementary interpretations, leading us from Hogarth's belief that the essence of beauty lies in shapely curves, to Kant's discourses on the meaning of pleasure. In this lucid and lyrical exploration John Armstrong aims to deepen our response both to beauty and to happiness. As he shows, the ability to truly recognise the beauty that surrounds us in the everyday could enable us to deepen the enjoyment of our lives. 172 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
