But her life changes forever when she’s unwillingly recruited by a mysterious society called The Agency, a group of people that share her ability to see the supernatural. Zoey is whisked off to a strange place, where monsters and humans coexist, where leprechaun gangs, giant fairies and vampire bowling balls are the least of her problems.

The Seventh Sense Book Excerpt:

The Seventh Sense is the definitive study of the aesthetic theory of the great eighteenth-century philosopher Francis Hutcheson, arguably the founder of the modern discipline of aesthetics, and one of the most important figures of the Scottish Enlightenment. This new edition brings Peter Kivy's seminal work back into print, substantially expanded by the addition of seven essays, which deal primarily with Hutcheson's relation to other thinkers, and his influence on eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century aesthetics. Part I of The Seventh Sense presents a detailed analysis of Hutcheson's aesthetic theory. Part II traces the considerable influence of Hutcheson's theory up to the early years of the nineteenth century. Part III is a new and substantial addition to the original work, collecting Peter Kivy's essays on this topic since the first edition appeared, which deal primarily with Hutcheson, David Hume, and Thomas Reid. Philosophers of art, historians of philosophy, and historians working on eighteenth-century European art and culture will find this new edition an invaluable resource.

The Seventh Sense Book Excerpt:

Flashes of insight—the "Eureka!" moments that produce new and useful ideas in a single thought—are behind some of the world's most creative and practical innovations. This book shows how to cultivate more and better flashes of insight by harnessing the science and practice of the "seventh sense." Drawing from psychology, neuroscience, Asian philosophy, and military strategy, William Duggan illustrates the power of the seventh sense to help readers aspire to and achieve more in their personal and professional lives. His examples include Gandhi, Joan of Arc, Starbucks founder Howard Shultz, and executives and students he has taught in his classes. His book presents specific steps in the form of three practical tools to help prepare the mind, see and seize opportunity, and follow through on one's resolution. Based on Duggan's perennially popular Columbia Business School course, this book teaches the mental skills and discipline that power the seventh sense.

Endless terror. Refugee waves. An unfixable global economy. Surprising election results. New billion-dollar fortunes. Miracle medical advances. What if they were all connected? What if you could understand why? The Seventh Sense is the story of what all of today's successful figures see and feel: the forces that are invisible to most of us but explain everything from explosive technological change to uneasy political ripples. The secret to power now is understanding our new age of networks. Not merely the Internet, but also webs of trade, finance, and even DNA. Based on his years of advising generals, CEOs, and politicians, Ramo takes us into the opaque heart of our world's rapidly connected systems and teaches us what the losers are not yet seeing -- and what the victors of this age already know.

The Seventh Sense Book Excerpt:

For the past thirty years, the United States government has secretly trained a select corps of military personnel in the art of "remote viewing" -- the psychic ability to perceive the thoughts and experiences of others through the power of the human mind.... Now, for the first time, Lyn Buchanan -- a world-renowned expert on remote viewing and its potential -- tells the complete, candid story of his experiences. Assigned for nearly a decade to a clandestine U.S. Army intelligence group, Buchanan trained military personnel who utilized their inherent psychic abilities as a data-collection tool during the Iran hostage crisis, the Chernobyl disaster, and the Gulf War. In this incredible account, Buchanan tells how he was selected for his unique psychic abilities, and how he was transformed from an ordinary soldier into one of our nation's leading psychic spies. Working on top-secret government and military projects using "mental espionage" created permanent, life-altering changes within Buchanan. Now, after many years of analysis and interpretation, he reveals the techniques and mental exercises used to train remote viewers, and demonstrates that each of us carries a dormant psychic ability that we can explore and use ourselves. For anyone interested in a hard, scientific look at the reality of psychic covert operations in the world today, or anyone who has ever wondered if he or she could have the inherent skills to become a remote viewer, this fascinating chronicle of life as a psychic spy will reveal the answers.

Seven Universal Principles and the Seventh Sense Book Excerpt:

One of the main goals of modern physics is to realize a single theory that will be able to unify the various theories and describe the universe with all its known and unknown facets. In order to find a unifying theory we must observe the universe and try to understand the universal laws that regulate all its parts. It becomes obvious that chemistry and physics are not enough to solve the riddle or explain the full complexity of the physiology of the human body. It is only when we add the energetic dimension to chemistry and physics that we understand the full expression of human life in every dimension. In this book the author present a new theory based on seven laws that embrace the universe and unify the forces of physics, biology, physiology, religion and spirituality. A new paradigm that links different cultures and different disciplines, science with philosophy, physics with spirituality and arts with mathematics. ... He compare the quantum realm and spirituality and gives a practical method to develop the seventh sense by which we can have access to the spiritual world and quantum realm in order to obtain information directly from the patient without using our five senses which are limited in space and time. A new definition of the basic concepts in medicine such as homeostasis, well being, malaise and disease and give the basis for a new model of diagnosis and treatment, that increases the awareness of the psychological-physical connection, enhance each persons capacity for self-knowledge and self-care, and promote the development of higher states of harmony and wholeness in the complex mind-energy-body connection in order to feel fulfill and achieve happiness.

Summary of Joshua Cooper Ramo s The Seventh Sense Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 In 1942, a young Chinese scholar named Nan Huai-Chin left Chengdu and began walking to Eyebrow Mountain, a sacred Buddhist site in Sichuan province. He had trained his spirit to the highest level of sharpness, and when attacked, his spirit moved first. #2 Nan began his quest to sharpen his spirit by traveling from master to master in China, from monastery to university to rural Tibetan huts. He became known as one of the country’s most powerful families, and was invited to set up a private school. #3 The world we live in today is both exciting and unsettling. It is exciting because it is full of opportunities, but it is unsettling because it is full of problems that require solutions. The world we live in today is a network age, and we need to develop the instincts needed for a network age. #4 In the first part of the book, I will explain how our networks fit into the long history of human civilization. We must understand that we are not living in a normal moment, but rather one where we are constantly connected.

FAITH YOUR SEVENTH SENSE Book Excerpt:

Faith, Your Seventh-Sense We are at our best, and we are happiest when we totally engage our Seventh-Sense toward the realization of the goals and dreams that we have set for ourselves. It gives purpose and assurance to our efforts and peace of mind to our souls. It makes life worthwhile, worth living, wonderful and fulfilled. Your FAITH is your Seventh-Sense. Faith is a powerful sense-ability and motivational word combined. It is a tested truth and contains principles by which any one may succeed in any endeavor depending on your own definition of success. Faith is a success button. It is such an amazing gift that so many people neglect out of ignorance. Faith is the compass of the soul. Faith is the lifeline of all humans; without it, fear, doubt, anxiety, unbelief, sickness and failure are the alternatives. A strong faith is an antidote against stress, fear, sickness and failure. Faith is the mother of all achievements. Living a fulfilled life would be almost impossible without a well developed faith-ability. And you cannot overcome any of your fears; whether it is the fear of failure, death, poverty, sickness, criticisms, personal insecurities, etc., until you begin to apply the principles and powers of your faith. With the added advantage of a vibrant faith-ability you stand taller in the spirit than those who only rely on the five senses. You will discover the amazing power of your faith after reading this book. Your faith will rise to action-oriented and problem-solving levels. You will also receive a faith that potentially destroys fears, generates miracles, and changes situations. This is because faith is a developed ability and a conditioned state of mind to trust and not doubt. It is a life support and life sustainer in times of adversity. You could do more for yourself through the power of your faith than a million dollars would. You are richer than you think through faith and poorer than you imagined without it. Faith, your 7th Sense ability.

Taste and Experience in Eighteenth Century British Aesthetics Book Excerpt:

Taste and Experience in Eighteenth Century Aesthetics acknowledges theories of taste, beauty, the fine arts, genius, expression, the sublime and the picturesque in their own right, distinct from later theories of an exclusively aesthetic kind of experience. By drawing on a wealth of thinkers, including several marginalised philosophers, Dabney Townsend presents a novel reading of the century to challenge our understanding of art and move towards a unique way of thinking about aesthetics. Speaking of a proto-aesthetic, Townsend surveys theories of taste and beauty arising from the empiricist shift in philosophy. A proto-aesthetic was shaped by the philosophers who followed Locke and accepted that theories of taste and beauty must be products of experience alone. Francis Hutcheson, David Hume, Alexander Gerard and Thomas Reid were among the most important advocates, joined by others who re-thought traditional topics. Featuring chapters tracing its philosophical principles, issues raised by the subjectivity of the empiricist approach and the more academic proto-aesthetic formed toward the end of the century, Townsend argues that Lockean empiricism laid the foundations for what we now call aesthetics.

The Century of Taste Book Excerpt:

The Century of Taste offers an exposition and critical account of the central figures in the early development of the modern philosophy of art. Dickie traces the modern theory of taste from its first formulation by Francis Hutcheson, to blind alleys followed by Alexander Gerard and Archibald Allison, its refinement and complete expression by Hume, and finally to its decline in the hands of Kant. In a clear and straightforward style, Dickie offers sympathetic discussions of the theoretical aims of these philosophers, but does not shy from controversy--pointing out, for instance, the obscurities and inconsistencies in Kant's aesthetic writings, and arguing that they have been overrated.

After Taste Critique of insufficient reason Book Excerpt:

After Taste is an inquiry into a field of study dedicated to the reconsideration, reconstruction and rehabilitation of the concept of Taste. Taste is the category, whose systematic, historical and actual dimensions have traditionally been located in a variety of disciplines. The actuality and potential of the study is based on a variety of collected facts from readings and experiences, which materialize in the following features: One concept (figurative Taste), two thinking traditions (analytic and synthetic/continental) and three interrelated dimensions (systematic, historic and actual) are presented in three volumes. As such, the study presents a salient comprehensive companion for wider readership of humanities approaching conceptions of Taste for the first time. Moreover, After Taste is intended for anyone who hopes to make a further contribution to the subject. Since its appearance and apparently short triumph some 250 years ago, the concept of non-literary Taste remained the linchpin of aesthetic theory and practice, but also a category outreaching aesthetics. Taste as the personal unity of the production, theory and criticism of art and literature, which was still largely taken as a given in the eighteenth century, has meanwhile given way to a highly-differentiated art world, in which aesthetic discourse is placed in such a way that it can seemingly no longer have a conceptual or linguistic effect on general opinion making. The critical role of “Taste judges”, ratings and rankings in the feuilleton, politics and social media on the one hand and the responding search for new canons on the other have had a huge impact on the academic and popular discourse today. However, Taste’s impact on society is in fact all-encompassing and yet, without getting even close to the “magnetic North” of the academic compass. After Taste fills the gaps of systematic research by a comprehensive tracing of the emergence of the doctrines, discourses and disciplinary dimensions of Taste up to the peak of its systematic and historical trajectory in the eighteenth century and onwards into the present day. The guiding goal is a post-disciplinary rehabilitation of the contested category as a preparation for its productive usage in emerging academic and popular contexts. Three intertwined research hypotheses form the guiding goal of an overall study of the agencies of Taste, its institutionalizations and expert cultures: The (1) first part provides a missing systematic perspective on the concept of Taste as a key factor for understanding the human faculties, value theories and practices of valuating. The (2) second part traces the events at the peak of Taste’s systematic and historical trajectories up until the late eighteenth century and verifies the historiographical hypothesis about the instrumentality of Taste for the production, reception and distribution of culture. The (3) third part reconstructs the major moments in which the contested concept of Taste experiences its post-disciplinary rehabilitation, in preparation for its future productive usage in the academic and popular discourses and practices. It shows how the category of Taste became the foundation, legitimation and the catalyst for the emerging division of labour, faculties and disciplines, confirming the hypothesis of the immense impact and actuality of Taste in the contemporary world.

Design Unbound Designing for Emergence in a White Water World Volume 2 Book Excerpt:

Tools for navigating today's hyper-connected, rapidly changing, and radically contingent white water world. Design Unbound presents a new tool set for having agency in the twenty-first century, in what the authors characterize as a white water world—rapidly changing, hyperconnected, and radically contingent. These are the tools of a new kind of practice that is the offspring of complexity science, which gives us a new lens through which to view the world as entangled and emerging, and architecture, which is about designing contexts. In such a practice, design, unbound from its material thingness, is set free to design contexts as complex systems. In a world where causality is systemic, entangled, in flux, and often elusive, we cannot design for absolute outcomes. Instead, we need to design for emergence. Design Unbound not only makes this case through theory but also presents a set of tools to do so. With case studies that range from a new kind of university to organizational, and even societal, transformation, Design Unbound draws from a vast array of domains: architecture, science and technology, philosophy, cinema, music, literature and poetry, even the military. It is presented in five books, bound as two volumes. Different books within the larger system of books will resonate with different reading audiences, from architects to people reconceiving higher education to the public policy or defense and intelligence communities. The authors provide different entry points allowing readers to navigate their own pathways through the system of books.
