ISBN: 1584209488


NEW - published 01/18 "Philolaus was essentially a Presocratic, but it is also my view that Philolaus was privy to some of Pythagoras’ secret doctrines, including the heliocentric theory and that of the harmony of the spheres, as well as most of his scientific, mathematical, geometric, musical, and astronomical discoveries. It is my further judgment that he plagiarized most of these features from Pythagoras and adapted them in order to reveal a new and ma... View more info

ISBN: 0863153240


This bright, deep, meditative jewel-like study brings Heraclitus to life in a new way, and shows him to be one of the principal sources of Western mystical thinking. From Geldard's point of view, the study of Heraclitus is not just an academic matter but, on the contrary, presents us with very real existential and phenomenological challenges. The book includes new translations of all the essential fragments. Geldard, through his exploration of Heraclitus, shows ... View more info

Seller ID: 12367

ISBN: 1584201215


Empirical knowledge is only one side of "reality." Empirical knowledge is all about the "outside," the surfaces of objects, the matter we can see and touch. It does not speak to the "insides," the unconscious inner reality, subjectivity, feelings, and meaning that humans contribute to the world of objects we experience in our day-to-day lives. The New Enlightenment looks at the inside from that place phenomenologist Edmund Husserl termed "the ... View more info

"Interpreting the final drawing from the Child Artist is for me the beginning of an exploration into the meaning of this exquisite gift he placed in my hands. As in the Gnostic myth, it involves a polarity. The Good and the Evil present themselves in their balanced capacity. Humanity meets the devouring monster and can slay it only after many painful sojourns into the depth of the Earth. On the horizontal plane, the domain of darkness, cacophony, and false gods, the ...

The view of most contemporary thinkers is that there is no purpose or value in the universe, or in nature. Following on from the success of "Does It Matter?" Graham Martin sets out to show this viewpoint to be false. He addresses several big issues, including the problem of evil, the mystery of the afterlife, and evidence for a spiritual dimension to human experience. Ultimately, he argues that our human intuitions give genuine hope of a moral and rational order ... View more info

“Philosophy has to proceed comparatively. The best we can do is to develop the rival alternative conceptions in each important domain as fully and carefully as possible, depending on our antecedent sympathies, and see how they measure up. That is a more credible form of progress than decisive proof or refutation.” —Thomas Nagel, American philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), the Austrian founder of Anthroposophy, is frequently viewed by...

For most people Intelligence is a beloved talent, a capacity to be proud of. At school it is one of the first things to be examined. There are diverse tests to measure the IQ quantitatively. Besides, human intelligence is the example for artificial intelligence. However ingenious this artificial intelligence may become, there is not even a remote possibility of its replicating human intelligence via some technical ‘living’ artificial intelligence. Even the si... View more info

"If a science of thinking is to rise again for humanity, it cannot be the science of discourse. At each moment it must light up out of the idea from which it is born; it must not limit itself to identifying with its conceptual elaboration." - Massimo Scaligero The Logic against Humanity is considered by many to be Massimo Scaligero’s most important work. It examines the difficulties faced by modern-day philosophers and scientists who employ “... View more info

'What was important for Steiner was less the body of his ideas themselves than the transformation they can bring about in the reader by opening the mind to the real nature of the spiritual world. Philosophy, properly regarded, is not the intellectual solution of abstract questions not being asked, but an activity that helps to resolve the questions which arise in the course of life itself. It must therefore itself become organically alive.' (From the Preface.) The object... View more info
