Following the huge success of THE MEANING OF THINGS and THE REASON OF THINGS, a third collection of bestselling essays from Britain's top philosopher. 'Human genius has done much, and promises much, in the way of removing the mystery from many things in our world; at the same time it recognises and honours the mystery in things too.' In this collection A.C. Grayling extends the range of his previous two books to show how much understanding people can gain about themselves and their world by reflecting on the lessons offered by science, the arts (including literature) and history. Covering subjects as diverse as Jane Austen's EMMA, the Rosetta Stone, Shakespeare, the Holocaust, quantum physics, Galileo, and even alien abductions, A..C. Grayling's latest collection is a rich source for reflection and contemplation over the mysteries of life.

The Mystery At The Heart Of Things

The ten sermons contained in this volume take up the challenge of honoring both mind and heart; recognizing that our minds and our hearts are inextricably entwined, that we are made of both. They do this while also recognizing that traditional religion is in trouble-resurgent fundamentalism notwithstanding-and that much of it fails to address the realities of where we live intellectually and emotionally. Here are sermons that do not gloss the hard questions that arise from hard experience; that recognize God is to be sensed, often most crucially, in the midst of difficulty; that God is ultimately a mystery we may not grasp, but rather a mystery that grasps us. Phillip S. Washburn, a minister in the United Church of Christ, is a graduate of Dickinson College and Duke Divinity School and the author of several librettos for musical dramas for performance in worship. He has served churches in Dumfries, Scotland; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Hamden, Connecticut; and lastly, for twenty-four years as Senior Minister at the Scarsdale Congregational Church, in Scarsdale, New York. Retired as of June, 2007, he currently resides in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Revised and Expanded Edition of The Secret of Shakespeare Reveals the full scope of Shakespeare's plays as sacred visionary dramas, illuminating the bard's greatest works and the man behind them • Reveals how, through the use of esoteric symbol and form, Shakespeare's plays mirror the inner drama of the journey of all souls • Conveys a heightened understanding of the plays through examining the theatrical rendering of their texts Through his study of such plays as Hamlet, Othello, MacBeth, and King Lear, Lings supplies expert and inspiring guidance to the beautifully wrought words and worlds of William Shakespeare. Lings's particular genius lies in his ability to convey, as perhaps no one else has ever done, the theatrical renderings of these texts, leaving readers with deep and lasting impressions not only of these masterpieces of dramatic artistry, but of the extraordinary man behind them as well.

A. C. Grayling's lucid and stimulating books, based on the idea that philosophy should engage with the world and make itself useful, are immensely popular. The Challenge of Things joins earlier collections like The Reason of Things and Thinking of Answers, but this time to collect Grayling's recent writings on the world in a time of war and conflict. In describing and exposing the dark side of things, he also explores ways out of the habits and prejudices of mind that would otherwise trap us forever in the deadly impasses of conflicts of all kinds. Whether he is writing about the First World War and its legacy, free speech, the advantages of an atheist prime minister or the role of science in the arts, his essays are always enlightening, enlivening and hopeful.
