How Proust Can Change Your Life, Alain De Botton
1 Alain De Botton How Proust Can Change Your Life
Picador 230814 Great Britain 1998 0330354914 / 9780330354912 Softcover Good Condition The starting point of How Proust Can Change Your Life is that a great novel can be nothing less than life-transforming. This is an unusual claim: our education system, while stressing that novels are highly worthwhile, rarely investigates why this is so. How Proust Can Change Your Life takes Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time as the basis for a sustained investigation into the power and significance of literature. Proust's novel, almost a byword for obscurity and irrelevance, emerges as an invaluable source of insight into the workings of love, society, art and the meaning of existence. The book reveals Proust's thoughts on how to revive a relationship, choose a good doctor, enjoy a holiday, make friends and respond to insult. A vivid portrait of the eccentric yet deeply sympathetic author is built up out of extracts from his letters, essays and fiction and is combined with a commentary on the power of literature to change our lives. A self-help book like few others. 215 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Philosophy; Philosophy; ISBN: 0330354914.

Freedom Evolves, Daniel C. Dennett
6 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.

The text is not cluttered with Chinese names and the pages are not weighed down with footnotes but the references are there for those who want them, with suggestions for further readings.

The Secret Power of Beauty: Why Happiness is in the Eye of the Beholder, John Armstrong
15 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.
