“Civilization rests on a series of successful conversations.” - Sam Harris

Neuroscientist, philosopher, podcaster and bestselling author Sam Harris, has been exploring some of the greatest questions concerning the human mind, society, and the events that shape our world.

Harris' search for deeper understanding of how we think has led him to engage and exchange with some of our most brilliant and controversial contemporary minds - Daniel Kahneman, Robert Sapolsky, Anil Seth and Max Tegmark - in order to unpack and understand ideas of consciousness, free will, extremism, and ethical living.

For Harris, honest conversation, no matter how difficult or contentious, represents the only path to moral and intellectual progress.

Featuring twelve conversations from the hit podcast, these electric exchanges fuse wisdom with rigorous interrogation to shine a light on what it means to make sense of our world today.

In The Map of Knowledge Violet Moller traces the journey taken by the ideas of three of the greatest scientists of antiquity - Euclid, Galen and Ptolemy - through seven cities and over a thousand years. In it, we follow them from sixth-century Alexandria to ninth-century Baghdad, from Muslim Cordoba to Catholic Toledo, from Salerno's medieval medical school to Palermo, capital of Sicily's vibrant mix of cultures, and - finally - to Venice, where that great merchant city's printing presses would enable Euclid's geometry, Ptolemy's system of the stars and Galen's vast body of writings on medicine to spread even more widely.

In tracing these fragile strands of knowledge from century to century, from east to west and north to south, Moller also reveals the web of connections between the Islamic world and Christendom, connections that would both preserve and transform astronomy, mathematics and medicine from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

Vividly told and with a dazzling cast of characters, The Map of Knowledge is an evocative, nuanced and vibrant account of our common intellectual heritage.

Charles Handy is one of the giants of contemporary thought. His books on management - including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management - have changed the way we view business. His work on broader issues and trends - such as Beyond Certainty and The Second Curve - has changed the way we view society. In his new book, Handy builds on a life's work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities the next generation faces. How will people cope with change in a world where the old certainties no longer apply? What goals will and should they set themselves? How will they find purpose and fulfilment in their lives? Clear-eyed and optimistic by turns, he sets out the questions that everyone needs to ask themselves, and points us in the direction of the answers.

The most prestigious and influential book on strategy and dealing with conflict, beautifully translated for clear, accessible reading.

In the words of Sun Tzu, 'To win without fighting is best.' This timeless Chinese classic captures the essence of military strategy used in ancient East Asia, with lessons on how to handle conflict confidently, efficiently, and successfully. The techniques and instructions discussed in The Art of War apply to competition and conflict on every level, from the interpersonal to the international. Its aim is invincibility, victory without battle, and unassailable strength through an understanding of the physics, politics, and psychology of conflict.

Thomas Cleary's translation is a breakthrough achievement that has been a gold standard among translations for three decades, offering the complete text in eminently readable prose with short commentaries by other ancient Chinese strategists and philosophers interwoven throughout.

Selected as a Book of the Year in The Times Literary Supplement 'This lucid and riveting new biography at once rescuses Kierkegaard from the scholars and shows why he is such an intriguing and useful figure' Observer Soren Kierkegaard, one of the most passionate and challenging of modern philosophers, is now celebrated as the father of existentialism - yet his contemporaries described him as a philosopher of the heart. Over about a decade in the 1840s and 1850s, writings poured from his pen analysing love and suffering, courage and anxiety, religious longing and defiance, and forging a new philosophical style rooted in the inward drama of being human. As Christianity seemed to sleepwalk through a changing world, Kierkegaard dazzlingly revealed its spiritual power while exposing the poverty of official religion. His restless creativity was spurred on by his own failures: his relationship with the young woman whom he promised to marry, then left to devote himself to writing, haunted him throughout his life. Though tormented by the pressures of celebrity, he deliberately lived amidst the crowds in Copenhagen, known by everyone but, he felt, understood by no one. When he collapsed exhausted at the age of 42, he was still pursuing the question of existence: how to be a human being in this world? Clare Carlisle's innovative and moving biography writes Kierkegaard's remarkable life as far as possible from his own perspective, conveying what it was like to be this Socrates of Christendom - as he put it, living life forwards yet only understanding it backwards.

'Smart, engaging and funny. It will make you question everything you think you know about what you want' Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women Be ambitious; find everlasting love; look after your health ... There are countless stories about how we ought to live our lives. These narratives can make our lives easier, and they might sometimes make us happier too. But they can also trap us and those around us. In Happy Ever After, bestselling happiness expert Professor Paul Dolan draws on a variety of studies ranging over wellbeing, inequality and discrimination to bust the common myths about our sources of happiness. He shows that there can be many unexpected paths to lasting fulfilment. Some of these might involve not going into higher education, choosing not to marry, rewarding acts rooted in self-interest and caring a little less about living forever. By freeing ourselves from the myth of the perfect life, we might each find a life worth living.

Slavoj Zizek shows how the answer is already stealing into sight, like a thief in broad daylight. What we must do is wake up and see it.

Into the Eyes of the Beloved is a unique spiritual and poetic guide on practical aspects and applications of the yoga philosophy and meditation according to yoga teacher Quinzell Vorster. Included in the guide is a collection of soul poems, woven into a guided instruction that celebrates life and the Beloved. Quinzell brings together over 13 years of sitting and yoga teaching in this reflective guide that invites awareness and inner stillness.
Over the years, her yoga practice has offered her not only physical exercises, but also moments to become spiritually centered and still on the mat. That stillness and centering slowly trickled through to her daily life as she practised to be mindful, and clear the mirror of her mind in order to be fully present to God - the Beloved - in her life. This practice ultimately deepened and became an integral part of her traditional faith.

Into the Eyes of the Beloved is 'n unieke spirituele en poëtiese gids oor die praktiese aspekte en toepassings van die jogafilosofie en meditasie volgens die joga-instruktrise Quinzell Vorster. Ingeweef by die gids is 'n versameling spirituele gedigte, wat die lewe en die Geliefde vier. Quinzell bring meer as 13 jaar se meditasie en joga onderrig byeen in hierdie reflektiewe gids wat op bewuswees en innerlike stilte gerig is.
Oor die jare het haar jogapraktyk haar nie net fisiese joga-oefeninge gebied nie, maar ook die geleentheid om spiritueel gesentreerd te raak en stil te word op die mat. Die stilte en gesentreerdheid het mettertyd na haar daaglikse lewe uitgebrei, namate sy geoefen het om bewustelik in die oomblik te leef, die spieël van haar gedagtes skoon te vee, en volledig beskikbaar te wees aan God - die Geliefde - in haar lewe. Uiteindelik het hierdie praktyk verdiep en 'n integrerende deel van haar tradisionele geloof geword.

'n Eeu-oue-debat is of die mens, veral mans, van nature magsugtig en gewelddadig is. Dié boek ondersoek die probleem vanuit 'n historiese en filosofiese perspektief.
Die skrywer aanvaar die tese oor die gewelddadige natuur van die mens. Maar ook: wat is in die geskiedenis gedoen om dié “natuur” teen te werk of vrede te bevorder?

Hy reken dat die mens ook 'n morele verbeelding het wat die droom van vrede bevorder. Nog 'n (moontlike omstrede) punt is dat hy ook meen dat die morele verbeelding 'n funksie van die brein is wat deur sogenaamde heilige tekste ingekleur word.
