The first collection of short stories from novelist R. W. Hershey, The Philosopher's Stoned attempts to capture the role of adversity in creating personal change. Adversity comes in many forms, and we can overcome it or be overcome by it. When you read the story of Bonnie, or of the unfortunate prostitute facing her past, you might be reminded that adversity is only as strong as one's own weaknesses. I hope you're inspired to challenge adversity when you read of Shinjiro fighting to regain his legs, Pietro learning a bit more than he's supposed to, Berend Botje rising from turf farmer to legend, or the Little Champs standing tall against their tormentors. Perhaps you'll think twice about the true Blessings of Madness, embrace the marriage of higher and lower in one's own Entheogenic Engagement, and guard against the trappings of Unlightenment. Perhaps you'll be inspired to pity the King of Everything trapped inside his angry dominion, wonder at the twisted mind behind Project Grudge's effort of revenge, and bemoan sufferers of the Harvard Syndrome. All are facing the fire of adversity in their own way, some consumed by it, others rising above it, and it's a matter of interpretation whether the subjects are better or worse for their experiences. Remember that everyone has a story, everyone has a past. Some will overcome this past, some will harness it and be empowered, and some will be devastated by it. If we allow it to, adversity can have a purifying effect, and can help us understand its influence on others. After all, sometimes you find the Philosophers' Stone, and sometimes you find the Philosopher's stoned.

From Sartre to Springsteen -- all you need to transform your inner philosopher. The purpose of philosophical thinking is to inspire deep thoughts with new perspectives on the paradoxes of all time. The Philosopher's Stoned engenders personal transformation and purpose with profound potent quotes. Pondering the paradoxes of the world and finding perspective is one of the most sublime pursuits when consciousness is awakened and altered. There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who are fine with not knowing. And those who cannot bear not knowing. They Kant stand it. They are the Earth School students who will boldly venture into realms of human knowledge. They will take part in the grand tradition of examined living. "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" (Mary Oliver)

This is a book for those who have finally accepted the insanity of our human situation. That means anyone who understands that our finest insights often appear in moments of complete surrender, such as when we laugh. It is then that we allow cracks to form in the brittle shell of certainty that hides the light of reality. The Philosopher's Stoned makes no claim to offer answers for any spiritual seekers among you. What it does offer is an out-of-kilter view of the world that may offend some and delight others. Above all, it strives to lay waste to our lazy assumptions about life. In doing so, it targets universal themes that should resonate with anyone's experience.

World, Class, Women begins the extraordinarily important task of bringing a postcolonial, feminist voice to critical pedagogy and, by extension explores how current debates about education could make a contribution to feminist thought. Robin Truth Goodman deftly weaves together the disciplines of literature, postcolonialism, feminism, and education in order to theorize how the shrinking of the public sphere and the rise of globalization influence access to learning, what counts as knowledge, and the possibilities of a radical feminism.

This book is stoned. This book is high. This book is the product of an illegal mind, the spawn of an outlawed consciousness. Separately these stories, essays, poems, and jokes don't mean much. So I cleaned them up, dumped them out onto paper, and then rolled up a big joint of words. And this is the result. It smolders with imaginative horror, mystical speculation, hyper-vivid dreams, disconnected humor, and nebulous memories. There are words all over the place, stray lines and ideas leading no where, weird scenes flaming up and then dying down, characters drifting in, and then stumbling out amidst swirling poems and rambling psychedelic thought-talk. That's why I call it The Book of Smoke.

The Comedy of Mind is a readable philosophical essay on the relationship between philosophy and laughter. Taking themes from the world of comedy such as wonder, folly and madness, paradox, and nonsense, Glasgow examines the limits of human thought and reason as put forth by philosophers through the ages. He pays special attention to Socrates, Plato, Kant, Hegel, Marx and Nietzsche among others. In his concern with the limits of human reason, he also explores various forms of mysticism and considers questions raised by modern logic and science. Glasgow's study brings together comic drama and literature with philosophical texts in a way that is original and provocative but also accessible to a wide audience.

The teachings of Jesus Christ, as presented in the Bible, are familiar to millions, but do we really understand them? Keith Ward argues that, by scrutinising the Gospels through the lens of contemporary philosophy, we can discover a profound teaching that is not always apparent in traditional church teaching. Ward's analysis of what Jesus really said uncovers four central themes: - that the Gospel is for everyone (but not necessarily everyone will be saved); - that the Second Coming will lead to a future in the spiritual realm, not a physical world; - that Jesus presents a moral ideal for life rather than a literal set of rules; - that God is expressed initially through the incarnation of Jesus, but ultimately through the whole of creation.
