Beyond Feelings Book Excerpt:

Bishnupada Sethi's third volume "Beyond Feelings" carries forward the search with which he began his poetic journey in his first volume "Where Shall I Go!" Here questions of home and destiny keep eluding the poet as he realizes that both of them ever keep changing their places or merging one with the other. Finding that he has "no desire to move away from (home)" he carries it in him wherever he goes. And the idea of home for the poet is not a definite place where he lives but the places and situations where he has been. The pillars of strength of Sethi's poetry are fulfilling filial relationship, childhood innocence and participation in cultural activities. Yet it is the scientist in him that brings about a just equilibrium; "Like the particles in air/and clay in waters/ in my mind, the heavier matters/ are all settling down." Fine residues they are. Once conflicting matters "settle" down to the bottom of one's understanding one does not have to grope for, as Sethi shows, answers to the ever bugging questions like "Where was I?" or "Where am I heading?" Above all, the poet's distancing from the objects of desire has enabled him to achieve a lucidity which becomes the watermark of his poetry. The volume could not have been titled better.

The God Conspiracy Book Excerpt:

Not believing, but only experiencing, says Osho in this inspiring book, is a way of finding truth and meaning. While Nietzsche's declaration that "God is dead, therefore man is free" was an incredible step in understanding, he argues, it is in itself a negative solution and does not bring freedom. Simply removing God is not enough. In The God Conspiracy, Osho offers a solution beyond Nietzsche — meditation, a direct connection with existence itself. Here he shows how Zen and meditation allow us to find meaning and significance, creativity, receptivity, and a path to freedom. Zen has no God, but it has a tremendous power to transform our consciousness, to bring so much awareness that committing evil becomes inconceivable. This book argues persuasively that transformation cannot be imposed, but must come from one’s innermost being and understanding.

Find a Good Man and Keep Him Book Excerpt:

A lady once said that finding a good man is like looking for a needle in a haystack. This is not and should not be the case. True love is all around you if earnestly you desire it. The book suggests functional approaches to true love as an alternative to the hit-and-miss approach that almost always ends in divorce or heartbreak. The book is for the married or single woman. It is for the married woman who, perhaps, already has a good man and necessarily must keep him. It is for the single woman who now is in search of a good man for a lifetime of joyful romance and companionship. The book examines the good man's qualifying attributes, the meaning of romantic love, the concrete manifestations of love and, importantly, how you recognize and sustain true love when it comes your way. Find a Good Man and Keep Him is a practical guide that leads you through and away from the hurtful tumbles and stumbles of a failed relationship onto the path of manifest love with a good man.

The Road to Social Transcendentallism Book Excerpt:

Here, at length, is a loose quartet of books comprising author John O'[Loughlin's collected multigenre philosophical writings, all of which originally date from the early 1980s and embrace, besides essays and disalogues (rather antithetically), what he calls aphorisms and maxims, whether or not also dubbed 'notational', thereby combining all such genres on a more collectivized basis than was originally the case, and with reference to what gradually developed into the ideological philosophy of Social Transcendentalism, as discussed more comprehensively as one proceeds along the metaphorical 'road' through each of the individual books of this substantive volume towards its culmination and effective philosophical apotheosis.

The Story of Warden El Book Excerpt:

Warden El is the story of a journey-one woman's journey to enlightenment and to freedom from the chains of her subconscious mind. Leila, a woman of the world, is initially unaware of her subconscious, still less of its effect on her conscious actions and her entire life. The story follows Leila as, under the tutelage of the guiding spirit Warden El, she comes to understand how the events of her life, even those now unrecalled, weave a web that binds her mind until she learns to break free. Although it is told as a fable, Warden El brings together the science and the mystery of the subconscious to offer an original insight into the workings of the human mind that will resonate in your own life.

Faith in Life Book Excerpt:

“A significant contribution to Dewey scholarship that adds an important element to our understanding of late 19th century philosophy in America.”?Scott L. Pratt, University of Oregon This is the first book to consider John Dewey’s early philosophy on its own terms and to explicate its key ideas. It does so through the fullest treatment to date of his youthful masterwork, the Psychology, revealing that the received view, which sees Dewey’s early philosophy as unimportant in its own right, is deeply mistaken. In fact, Dewey’s early philosophy amounts to an important new form of idealism containing a new logic of rupture, which allows us to achieve four things: • A focus on discontinuity that challenges all naturalistic views, including Dewey’s own later view • A space of critical resistance to events that is at the same time the source of ideals • A faith in the development of ideals that challenges pessimists like Schopenhauer and Nietzsche • A non-traditional reading of Hegel that invites comparison with cutting-edge Continental philosophers such as Adorno, Derrida, and Zizek, and even goes beyond them in its systematic approach In making these discoveries, the author forges a new link between American and European philosophy, showing how they share similar insights and concerns. He also provides an original assessment of Dewey’s relationship to his teacher, George Sylvester Morris, and to other important thinkers of the day, giving us a fresh picture of the man and the philosopher in the early years of his career. Readers will find a wide range of topics discussed, from Dewey’s early reflections on Kant and Hegel to the nature of beauty, courage, sympathy, hatred, love, and even death and despair, in a book for anyone interested in the thought of John Dewey, American pragmatism, Continental Philosophy, or a new idealism appearing on the scene.

Building on the legacy of the groundbreaking first edition, the Editors of this unique volume have selected more than 100 leading emotion researchers from around the world and asked them to address 14 fundamental questions about the nature and origins of emotion. For example: What is an emotion? How are emotions organized in the brain? How do emotion and cognition interact? How are emotions embodied in the social world? How and why are emotions communicated? How are emotions physically embodied? What develops in emotional development? At the end of each chapter, the Editors--Andrew Fox, Regina Lapate, Alexander Shackman, and Richard Davidson--highlight key areas of agreement and disagreement. In the final chapter--The Nature of Emotion: A Research Agenda for the 21st Century--the Editors outline their own perspective on the most important challenges facing the field today and the most fruitful avenues for future research. Not a textbook offering a single viewpoint, The Nature of Emotion reveals the central issues in emotion research and theory in the words of many of the leading scientists working in the field today, from senior researchers to rising stars, providing a unique and highly accessible guide for students, researchers, and clinicians.

Developing Leadership Book Excerpt:

What kind of a leader do you want to become? The role of business schools in developing future managers and leaders has long been scrutinised and critiqued. This has been exacerbated by the recent financial crisis and many books have been written that condemn business schools for producing leaders who graduate without the ability to respond to the changing world around them, innovate, or act in a responsible way. By way of remedy this provocative book takes the critique and debate further, proposing a number of ethical and spiritual resources including Heiggarian philosophy, classical Greek philosophy, and the Maori notion of wairua. It explores existing teaching practices and suggests ways that business schools can: Encourage a greater understanding of different world views Introduce different perspectives such as the arts, philosophy and spirituality Encourage the practice of responsible and ethical leadership Nurture innovation and creativity. Developing Leadership is accompanied by filmed seminars exploring the central debates, and interviews with the expert team of contributors. The conversation continues at www.ethicalleadership.org.uk 'A rare thing, this book gives more than the label promises. The title is about "questions", yet each chapter gives us answers to why important issues are not addressed in business schools – and what to do about it. This is a manifesto for reform, and the next big question is what will you, reader, do about it?' - Professor Jonathan Gosling, Director, Centre for Leadership Studies, University of Exeter, UK, and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD, France
