Philosophy (138 Books)


Philosophy as a category is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means "love of wisdom".

Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

General Concept of World Creation : Volume 45

By: Yuri Poludyonnyy

The book presents the author’s ideas about the structure of world creation. It is the attempt to combine religious and scientific knowledge. The mechanism of genesis and development of the matter is under consideration; it is viewed as a circle of energy and information transformation. The model of the world creation and the cycle of Universe existence based on the Set Theory are presented in the article. Proof by contradiction is used for grounding artificial genesis of the matter.

无政府主义在中国的历史研究 : 无政府主义在中国的历史研究

By: 夜伤鹰 夜伤鹰 夜伤鹰; 俞小明 俞小明 俞小明

政治: 无政府主义者认为任何政权都无法能够长久持续的保障人民的利益,相反人性对权力的崇拜有可能会导致国家动荡、经济萧条和人为灾难,政权的存在或多或少都会产生独裁的根源,这种独裁根源有可能会影响到每个人自由选择生活的方式,从而影响社会的意识形态,所以无政府主义者认为任何政权的存在都不可能真正为大多数劳苦大众服务,即便是为大多人服务也是一时的,不代表可以长期可持续的。

政治: 无政府主义者认为任何政权都无法能够长久持续的保障人民的利益,相反人性对权力的崇拜有可能会导致国家动荡、经济萧条和人为灾难,政权的存在或多或少都会产生独裁的根源,这种独裁根源有可能会影响到每个人自由选择生活的方式,从而影响社会的意识形态,所以无政府主义者认为任何政权的存在都不可能真正为大多数劳苦大众服务,即便是为大多人服务也是一时的,不代表可以长期可持续的。 社会: 在社会方面,无政府主义者倾向社会结构应该实现高度自治,自治的目的是为了更好的管理国家,而不是服从国家或者某个政党,无政府主义者对于社会的理想状态是地球是一个地球村,人类不应该有国家和国界,但是在人类还没达到高度公民社会的前提下,这种理想只是既有一种空用梦想的情怀,短期内是无法实现的,所以夜伤鹰提出,无政府主义者应该在长期一段时间内认同国家的存在,认为国家的存在和高度自治并不矛盾,高度自治应该是建立在各类社交媒介上,自治应该率先实现社团的“物以类聚人以群分”的理念,根据不同人的思想意识和价值观实现自由组合,组成社团家庭,然后在国家体制下,由无数个社...

El Pensador Cuántico : Ideas fragmentadas ordenadas al azar

By: Nacho Frades

Este libro es una recopilación de pensamientos azarosa, de ahí su nombre “cuántico”, que no tiene que ver con la física de partículas más allá de su impredecibilidad. Está pensado para leer en cualquier orden. Su intención no es ninguna, salvo si acaso servir como divertimento acerca de disciplinas varias. Espero que sirva a su propósito, que no es ninguno en especial.

"Vida" Hasta que el pensamiento no se transforma en un acto, no vale nada.

Cartografía Crítica. : El Quehacer Profesional de la Filosofia en...

By: Sr. José Santos Herceg

“El libro de José Santos es un registro panorámico y complejo de la situación de la filosofía y su enseñanza, de la investigación filosófica, de la escritura filosófica y su a veces inhabilitación crítica en Chile. Por razones diversas y de diversa envergadura el libro de Santos es necesario y oportuno” (Álvaro García).

“La relevancia de este libro me parece fundamental, y replicable además como ejercicio en otras disciplinas y otras latitudes. Tiene especial relevancia histórica el poder hacer este análisis en nuestro contexto chileno de reforma educacional, justamente en el momento en que han de pensarse el quehacer de los ‘intelectuales’ y ‘académicos’” (Valentina Bulo).

Army Reserve Medic : My Experience with the 691st Medical Team (fo...

By: Victor T. Chambers

This book is an introspective look at the influence war, love and religion has on man.

I have come to believe: what it is to be a man is not something rigid. Every generation has its war and every thousand has its God. For every new generation, babies are born from union and raised in every variation. The boy becomes man by culture, tradition, religion or war. Some men become so by choice and some do not live to become men at all. These men may grow and progress through life yet find themselves trapped in the shadows listlessly searching for something they cannot even name.

Vipassana II : Trials of a Wannabe Buddha, A Novel Experience, Vol 2

By: Anonymous

Following on from ‘Confessions of a Serial Meditator’, the trials of living with a new girlfriend, her pre-teen daughters, and her dying mother, pose the stiffest test any Vipassana yogi and wannabe Buddha could ever hope to face. When the equanimity slips, where do you run to? Who will come to help? Would modern-day asceticism be ‘the way’ (out)? What adventures could possibly await an aspiring Buddha with itchy feet and a desire to ‘keep ‘em laughing’? The battle within continues…

Flare: Opinions (Law, Human Rights and Politics)

By: Ankur Mutreja

Opinions are like flare, which can turn either way: they can spread like wild fire or encapsulate themselves within the bounds of personal integrity, and thus illuminate. I started writing opinions in the late 2008 through my blogs. I admit at times I did go wild with unsubstantiated accusations and surmises, leading to risky speculations and irresponsible opinions. Recently, I published a comprehensive book of my writings entitled "Writings @ Ankur Mutreja", and the pre...

Light : Philosophy

By: Ankur Mutreja

What is Philosophy? Is it the exclusive domain of those who dream in abstract? Or is it the manifestation of the struggle of those who practice in material? Does it originate in the minds of professors like a Ganges flowing out from the hair-locks of "Lord" Shiva? Or is it rustic and puerile, evolving into maturity through the experiences of common men. I started writing philosophy without actually knowing that I was writing one. To start with, it was an outlet to projec...
