Publisher: London, Oxford University Press: 1974

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: 249339

ISBN: 0192500937

Condition: Good Condition


Francis Bacon, lawyer, statesman, and philosopher, remains one of the most effectual thinkers in European intellectual history. We can trace his influence from Kant in the 1700s to Darwin a century later. The Advancement of Learning, first published in 1605, contains an unprecedented and thorough systematization of the whole range of human knowledge. Bacon's argument that the sciences should move away from divine philosophy and embrace empirical observation would forever change the way philosophers and natural scientists interpret their world. 298 pages.

Image for A Nietzsche Reader

A Nietzsche Reader

By: Frierich Nietzsche [Selected and Translated by R. J. Hollingdale]

Price: $7.00

Publisher: Great Britain, Penguin Classics: 1978

Edition: Revised Edition

Seller ID: 249338

ISBN: 0140443290

Condition: Good Condition


The literary career of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) spanned less than twenty years, but no area of intellectual inquiry was left untouched by his iconoclastic genius. The philosopher who announced the death of God in The Gay Science (1882) and went on to challenge the Christian code of morality in Beyond Good and Evil (1886), grappled with the fundamental issues of the human condition in his own intense autobiography, Ecce Homo (1888). Most notorious of all, perhaps, his idea of the triumphantly transgressive ubermann ('superman') is developed in the extreme, yet poetic words of Thus Spake ... View more info

Ecco Homo: How One Becomes What One Is

Price: $7.00

Publisher: Great Britain, Penguin Classics: 1979

Seller ID: 249340

ISBN: 0140443932

Condition: Good Condition


In late 1888, only weeks before his final collapse into madness, Nietzsche (1844-1900) set out to compose his autobiography, and Ecce Homo remains one of the most intriguing yet bizarre examples of the genre ever written. In this extraordinary work Nietzsche traces his life, work and development as a philosopher, examines the heroes he has identified with, struggled against and then overcome - Schopenhauer, Wagner, Socrates, Christ - and predicts the cataclysmic impact of his 'forthcoming revelation of all values'. Both self-celebrating and self-mocking, penetrating and strange, Ecce Homo give... View more info

Price: $14.00

Publisher: New York, Dover Publications:

Seller ID: 240226

ISBN: 0486200701

Condition: Good Condition


Kakuzo Okakura, who was known in America as a scholar, art critic, and Curator of Chinese and Japanese Art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, directed almost his entire adult life toward the preservation and reawakening of the Japanese national heritage — in art, ethics, social customs, and other areas of life — in the face of the Westernizing influences that were revolutionizing Japan around the turn of the century. This modern classic is essentially an apology for Eastern traditions and feelings to the Western world — not in passionate, oversentimental terms, but with a charm and under... View more info

Reclaiming Epicurus

By: Luke Slattery

Price: $5.00

Publisher: Australia, Penguin Specials: 2013

Seller ID: 249347

ISBN: 0143570439

Condition: Very Good Condition


Epicureanism is not just for gourmands - journalist Luke Slattery argues that it can help us rethink out materialist ways and face the challenges of man-made climate change. Rather than appealing to altruism, or calling for economic revolution, the Epicurean philosophy counsels that genuine happiness comes from the quieting of desire- from less, not more. And that might just be the mindset we need to rein in unsustainable development. Could answers to the big questions faced in the twenty-first century be found on fragments of petrified scrolls in the Villa of the Papyri, buried along with Pom... View more info

Regarded as the Father of the Nation in India and globally as the most successful exponent of nonviolent civil disobedience, Mahatma Gandhi is known as a symbol of wisdom and compassion. Former High Court Justice Michael Kirby, himself a tireless advocate for non-discrimination and human rights, here shows the applicability of Gandhi's views on some of the world's most pressing current issues- women's rights, climate change, animal rights and sex and sexuality. Adapted from Kirby's 2013 University of New South Wales Gandhi Oration, What Would Gandhi Do? shows how remarkably useful Gandhi's ins... View more info
