'The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge' Independent on Sunday Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher, poet and cultural critic. He is best known for his controversial idea of 'life affirmation' that challenged traditional morality and all doctrines. Born in 1844 outside Leipzig, Germany, his teachings inspired people in all walks of life, from dancers and poets to psychologists and social revolutionaries. Here you will find insights from his greatest works. The Life Lessons series from The School of Life takes a great thinker and highlights those ideas most relevant to ordinary, everyday dilemmas. These books emphasize ways in which wise voices from the past have urgently important and inspiring things to tell us. 'thoroughly welcoming and approachable ... If the six books in the Life Lessons series can teach even a few readers to pay passionate heed to the world - to notice things - they will have been an unquestionable success' John Banville, Prospect 'there is a good deal to be learned from these little primers' Observer

One of Tallahassee's richest cultural entities, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FSU, has collected here an anthology of mostly true and some fictional stories and poems, all rich, warm and seasoned. You get tales: bird dogs sprayed yellow and sulfurous; a white girl walking dusty red clay Georgia back roads and meeting her first black woman alone; an offbeat mom zanier than Lucille Ball; a magical memory with hooting owls echoing across a Suwannee River of the past; the chilling monologue of an old man set on his last revenge. In a poem, the narrator talks about finding an old friend on line with whom she tests recipes “for rescue and disaster.” What's not to love about a renaissance of words from a generation which has navigated its way through one world war, the cheery ‘50s, change-happy ‘60s, groovy ‘70s, greedy ‘80s, rich ‘90s, and into the next century? They have plenty to show us here. Mary Jane Ryals Poet Laureate of the Big Bend Tallahassee, Florida

A compilation of quotations and proverbs from the most enlightened, intelligent, and forward thinkers in human history regarding the most important aspects of life. Compiled and arranged to give the reader a clear direction in their life based on their internal needs, wants, and desires. While no one on Earth is special, everyone is unique. Nobody past, present, or future has gone through or has had the same thoughts and experiences as you, nor will they in the future. As a result, you see the world in a completely unique way. Studying these volumes will guide your mind's eye in distinguishing the most significant passages to you and your being as well as reaffirming or contradicting what you already know and believe, by the wisest people throughout history. Out of the thousands of quotes and proverbs within these volumes, your personality will subconsciously pick out the most relevant quotes and proverbs to you and you alone. It would be a mistake to concentrate on only one topic because all the subjects are connected to aid you in reaching your own epiphany. Many of the most profound quotes and proverbs are recorded under various topics throughout the book. Though you may only be interested in "Success & Failure," many of the quotes and proverbs attributed to success can also be found under "Leadership," "Attitude," or even "Life, Purpose, & Growth," for example. The aim of this huge collection of human wisdom is enlightenment: to assist the readers in realizing what is truly important in life, as well as to find their true self; to shatter the illusions that everyone builds for themselves through false assumptions and stereotypes; to find their true inner being; to find purpose; and, most importantly, to discover what makes them and them alone happy. To receive the full benefit of these volumes and to fully immerse yourself in self-discovery, you must commit to studying the entire collection. If you only want to scratch the surface of what is important in life, then limit yourself to a single volume. But if you want to master your true purpose, then study all four volumes.

Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche

The first book on Nietzsche ever to appear in English, this examination by legendary journalist H. L. Mencken is still one of the most enlightening. Mencken wrote this book while still in his 20s, but his penchant for thoroughness was evident even at that young age—in preparation for writing this book, he read Nietzsche's works in their entirety, mostly in the original German. A brief biographical sketch is followed by clear and thorough explanations of Nietzsche's basic concepts and attitudes. Analyzed are Nietzsche's much-misunderstood concept of the superman, his concept of eternal recurrence, his rejection of Christianity, and his basic rationalism and materialism. Included are two essays on Nietzsche that appeared in Mencken's magazine The Smart Set subsequent to the publishing of the original edition of this book. Nearly a century after its original publication, this remains one of the clearest, most concise, and entertaining introductions to Nietzsche to date.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Geography of Bliss embarks on a rollicking intellectual journey, following in the footsteps of history’s greatest thinkers and showing us how each—from Epicurus to Nietzsche, Thoreau to Gandhi—offers practical and spiritual lessons for today’s unsettled times. We contemplate for the same reasons we travel: to see the world from a different perspective, to unearth hidden beauty and find new ways of being. We want to learn how to embrace wonder. Face regrets. Sustain hope. Eric Weiner, New York Times bestselling author of The Geography of Bliss, combines his twin passions for philosophy and global travel in a pilgrimage that uncovers surprising life lessons from philosophers around the world, from Marcus Aurelius to Arthur Schopenhauer, Confucius to Montaigne. Traveling by train (the most thoughtful mode of transport) he traversed thousands of miles, making stops in Athens, Delhi, Massachusetts, Coney Island, Frankfurt, and points in between, to recapture philosophy’s original purpose: teaching us how to lead wiser, more meaningful lives. From Socrates and ancient Athens to Simone de Beauvoir and twentieth century Paris, Weiner’s chosen places and thinkers provide important signposts as we navigate today’s chaotic times. In The Socrates Express, Weiner invites us to voyage alongside him on his life-changing pursuit of wisdom and discovery as he attempts to find answers to our most vital questions.
