'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.

Should we believe in God? In this new book, written for a new generation, the brilliant science writer and author of The God Delusion, explains why we shouldn't.

Should we believe in God? Do we need God in order to explain the existence of the universe? Do we need God in order to be good? In twelve chapters that address some of the most profound questions human beings confront, Dawkins marshals science, philosophy and comparative religion to interrogate the hypocrisies of all the religious systems and explain to readers of all ages how life emerged without a Creator, how evolution works and how our world came into being.

For anyone hoping to grapple with the meaning of life and what to believe, Outgrowing God is a challenging, thrilling and revelatory read.

A radical new way to think about racism and an inspiring treatise for what to do about it from the Winner of the National Book Award 2016 and founding Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center.

Not being racist is not enough. We have to be antiracist.

In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows that when it comes to racism, neutrality is not an option: until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem.

Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos that so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality.

In the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism - what it is, where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.

Why does one smoker die of lung cancer but another live to 100? The answer is 'The Hidden Half' - those random, unknowable variables that mess up our attempts to comprehend the world. We humans are very clever creatures - but we're idiots about how clever we really are. In this entertaining and ingenious book, Blastland reveals how in our quest to make the world more understandable, we lose sight of how unexplainable it often is. The result - from GDP figures to medicine - is that experts know a lot less than they think. Filled with compelling stories from economics, genetics, business, and science, The Hidden Half is a warning that an explanation which works in one arena may not work in another. Entertaining and provocative, it will change how you view the world.

Get a good education, be successful, get married, have kids and look after your health. This is what we're told will make us happy. But what if these stories are doing more harm than good?

In Happy Ever After, bestselling happiness expert Professor Paul Dolan draws on groundbreaking research and data to bust the common myths about happiness and show that the path to fulfilment is actually far more unexpected than we thought. With straight-talking wisdom, he invites us to reappraise our values, free our minds from the 'narrative traps' of conventional wisdom and write our own version of the good life, based on maximising positive, meaningful experiences that can generate new social benefits - not least greater tolerance for different ways of life.

Happiness isn't what you're told. It's what you do.

'Die titel van Anton van Niekerk se boek, Die dood en die sin van die lewe, dui daarop dat die twee temas wat in die titel opgeneem is, in hierdie boek met mekaar in verband gebring word. Nadenke oor die een onderwerp veronderstel nadenke oor die ander. Dink ons oor die dood, dan kom die vraag na die sin van die lewe ook by ons op en ook andersom. Saam met die titel op die voorblad word Chris Jones aangehaal volgens wie hierdie boek “ongetwyfeld die invloedrykste denke ooit in Afrikaans” oor die onderwerp bied. Ek glo Jones is reg: hierdie is 'n belangrike teks wat tydig verskyn het in 'n jaar waarin sterwe en dood inderdaad 'n groter tema is onder die Afrikaanse leserspubliek. Hierdie toedrag van sake is natuurlik veral toe te skryf aan die invloedryke werke van Karel Schoeman, soos Slot van die dag, en uiteraard ook sy selfdood op 1 Mei 2017 en die gesprek wat dit in die media gestimuleer het. Van Niekerk verwys self ook hierna, en sy boek is deel van 'n hele paar tekste wat tans verskyn, soos Schoeman se werk, wat tereg 'n taboe uitdaag.' - CAS WEPENER

Prof. Anton van Niekerk skryf oor iets waaroor daar in Afrikaans nog bitter min buite die teologie geskryf is. Hy praat openhartig oor die vrae waarmee ons worstel by die afsterf van geliefdes en verduidelik beide persepsies van die dood oor eeue heen sowel as die nuutste denkstrome. Omstrede kwessies soos bystanddood en selfdood kom ter sprake. Uiteindelik is dié boek 'n oproep om elke oomblik ten volle te leef.

Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity.
The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet.
From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake: their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their eighties, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others.
Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life.

Oor Gode En Afgode is 'n herdruk van 'n vyftal essays van die Suid-Afrikaanse filosoof Marthinus Versfeld.
Die bundel het oorspronklik reeds in 1948 verskyn, maar die kwessies wat hierin bespreek word, is vandag steeds aktueel. Versfeld se groot bekommernis hier is dat die Westerse mens se opvatting van redelikheid en sy verhouding met die wêreld om ons, sedert die Verligting baie verskraal het.

Klip en klei is 'n herdruk van die Suid-Afrikaanse filosoof Marthinus Versfeld se bekendste en mees geliefde opstelle. Hy skryf op 'n meesleurende en dikwels humoristiese manier oor konkrete dinge en die betekenis wat hulle vir ons lewens het. In die eerste opstel, 'Oor huise', beskryf hy hoe hy self 'n huis van klip in die Kouga gebou het. So 'n huis moet by die bewoners daarvan pas, beweer Versfeld, en dit hang af daarvan of jy met jouself tuis is.
