Product Description
Customer Reviews
The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer is best known for his 1818 work ‘The World as Will and Idea’, which characterises the phenomenal world as the product of a blind and insatiable metaphysical will. Proceeding from the transcendental idealism of Kant, Schopenhauer developed an atheistic metaphysical and ethical system that is viewed by many as an exemplary manifestation of philosophical pessimism. His works on aesthetics, morality and psychology would exert a major influence on existential philosophy and Freudian thinking. This comprehensive eBook presents Schopenhauer’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Feminist ideology has seeped into every aspect of our society. This book is a sobering true story of tragedy, suicide, and murder directly caused by feminism. It not only chronicles true stories that show feminism's discrimination against men, it's backed by peer-reviewed research. Additionally, it includes investigative journalism that proves feminism was never about equality. The reality is that feminism doesn't just victimize men. It also victimizes women, children, families, and communities.

<h2> Use these powerful meditation secrets to immediately eliminate stress, anxiety, and even cure depression today! </h2><br />Have you ever wondered how it is that some people can go through their lives with relatively little stress while others seem to be able to handle all the stresses that life seems to throw at them? There’s no trick to it. What it takes is a little understanding and meditation helps you to gain that understanding. This book is written for beginners to help them to get on the road to recovery.<br /><br />Meditation not only makes you calmer, but it also helps you to be able to face the world with a new inner strength. If you think that it may be the answer for you, think on this. 40 million other people in the United States were treated for stress related illnesses in the last year. Although you may think that medical science should be able to keep up with this trend, what’s happening is that traditional medicines are failing. You want proof? You only have to look at the increase in stress related illnesses and you can see that something isn’t working.Meditation gives you an alternative that works. It has been used since before Christ was born and little by little has made its way into the lives of millions of people helping them to find answers for themselves. <b> You need this book </b> <br /><br /><h2> Here is a preview on what you will learn... </h2><br /><ul> <li> Why You Meditate </li> <li>Learning to Relax</li> <li>Preparing Yourself for Meditation</li> <li>Meditating </li> <li>Working on Your Depression</li> </ul><br /><b> Take action now and get this kindle book for only $2.99! </b><br />

First transcribed and published in print in 1963, the present volume is made up of three lectures given by J.G. Bennett to a public audience the same year. They are supplemented by the addition of a fourth public lecture given ten years later, also in London. Prior to the publication of the first three lectures, very little had been written about Gurdjieff or was generally available. Gurdjieff’s first series “Beelzebub’s Tales to his Grandson” had been published in 1950, but the few people who had read it had made little reference in print to the text or to the ideas. His second series “Meetings with Remarkable Men” was published for the first time a year before these talks were given. Ouspensky’s “In Search of The Miraculous” does not at any point refer to Gurdjieff by name, and is formed from an account of personal meetings over a four year period at the beginning of Gurdjieff’s teaching period, but at that time was the fundamental source material for students of Gurdjieff. <br /><br />John Godolphin Bennett (1897-1974) was a British mathematician, technologist, linguist and spiritual teacher. He is known as a leading exponent of the work of his teacher G.I. Gurdjieff. At the time of his death, Bennett was the Director of the International Academy for Continuous Education, Gloucestershire UK, a residential school based on the principles of Gurdjieff. <br /><br />Published by the J.G. Bennett Foundation, a family owned non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and publication of John Bennett’s written work and phonographic recordings.

Are natural explanations always superior to supernatural explanations for observed phenomena of the world? Miracles, it is said, can be explained by science. Demonic oppression is really just mental illness. The resurrection of Christ was a hoax or a product of wishful thinking on the part of his overly zealous followers. The origins of life, even the existence of the world, can be explained without God. But does the mere offering of such "natural" explanations automatically mean they are true? Many philosophers and scientists think not. In this short essay of 2400 words, the author suggests that "God" explanations can be valid, often working in harmony with science.
