Our lives become so filled with stress and activities; we sometimes forget the little wonders of joy that fill our day. We become so entangled in "stuff" that we may miss the realization that life is a gift. In Life 101, Mark S. Vian inspires us to reflect on our existence.Vian encourages us to stop and think about our chosen place in life, both in the past and in the present. Only we can make the decision to live happy and fulfilling lives. No matter what has happened in the past, our perspective of life and the future should become our focus and ultimate reality.The many poems, inspirational quotes, and readings carry positive messages of hope and encouragement. The title poem summarizes the book's theme of living life fully: "Life blossoms for those who seek expression/goodness, and fulfillment/Life flounders for those who, in their arrogance/feel life owes them expression, goodness, and fulfillment."In today's world of high expectations and differing perspectives of right and wrong, society is starving for a simpler and more understanding life. The messages in Life 101 move us toward that goal.

Handbook of Philosophical Logic

It is with great pleasure that we are presenting to the community the second edition of this extraordinary handbook. It has been over 15 years since the publication of the first edition and there have been great changes in the landscape of philosophical logic since then.

The main logic artiele in the Encyelopaedia Britannica 1999 has described the first edition as 'the best starting point for exploring any of the topics in logic'. We are confident that the second edition will prove to be just as good. ! The first edition...

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts / Gegenwart, Note: 1,0, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Von Gustave Flaubert ist der Ausspruch überliefert, er wolle am liebsten einmal „ein Buch über nichts“ schreiben. Das „nichts“, das dem Schriftsteller dabei vorschwebte, war in Wirklichkeit freilich kein „Nichts“, sondern „etwas“ - etwas Bedeutungsloses, etwas, das wegen seiner Alltäglichkeit bis dahin üblicherweise außerhalb des literarischen Interesses lag. In diesem Sinne wird das Wort „nichts“ im Alltag ständig verwendet: Es bezeichnet nicht die vollständig...

W. V. Quine

The most influential philosopher in the analytic tradition of his time, Willard Van Orman Quine (1908-2000) changed the way we think about language and its relation to the world. His rejection of the analytic/synthetic distinction, his scepticism about modal logic and essentialism, his celebrated theme of the indeterminacy of translation, and his advocacy of naturalism have challenged key assumptions of the prevailing orthodoxy and helped shape the development of much of recent philosophy. This introduction to Quine's philosophical ideas provides philosophers, students, and generalists with an authoritative analysis of Quine's lasting contributions to philosophy. The major themes covered inc...

Im vergangenen Jahr feierte das Selbstkontrollgremium sein 50-jähriges Bestehen1, begleitet von Glückwünschen verschiedenster Seiten, Medien, Justiz, Politik. Überflüssig ist der Rat noch lange nicht; die Frage, ob sich ethisches Handeln nicht längst im Bewusstsein der Journalis...

Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was one of the greatest writers and German philosophers of the nineteenth century. His work influenced figures as diverse as Wagner, Freud and Nietzsche.

Beginning with an overview of Schopenhauer's life and work, he introduces the central aspects of his metaphysics fundamental to understanding his work as a whole: his philosophical idealism and debt to the philosophy of Kant; his attempt to answer the question of what the world is; his account of science; and ...
