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.

Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes.

Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests for the Golden Fleece. See Atalanta - who was raised by bears - outrun any man before being tricked with golden apples. Witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx and discover how Bellerophon captures the winged horse Pegasus to help him slay the monster Chimera.

Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of - at our worst and our very best.

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.

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.

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.

'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.

Political philosophy is a field of study which aims to clarify our most fundamental ethical questions as human beings living in societies under conditions of scarce resources and unequal power: How should we live? What does a good life look like? What kind of social and political arrangements are most conducive to living good lives? Puzzles in contemporary political philosophy shows the relevance of classical and contemporary thinkers to our own lives and the world we live in today. This introduction uses a wealth of real-world examples drawn from the South African context to explore some of these questions: We value freedom but where should the limits to our freedom lie? What do we mean by equality? Do we mean that we want people to be equally happy, or equally successful, or equally well fed? We think of democracies as places where citizens can enjoy a certain measure of justice, but what is meant by 'justice'? Is it a particular form of distribution of goods, of services, of opportunities? Is justice the same as 'equality' or is there a difference? Are some forms of inequality 'just'? Is justness the same as 'fairness'? Written in simple, jargon-free language, this introduction to some of the most important debates in contemporary politics is an essential guide for undergraduate South African students of political philosophy.

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.

'Any spiritual life must tremble with the anxiety of freedom, even in the most profound fulfillment of our aspirations ...' Would Heaven be boring? Do you want to live forever? If this is all there is, what should we do with it? Join the Swedish philosopher Martin Hagglund on an original inquiry into the deepest questions of existence. To truly embrace the freedom that life grants us, Hagglund argues, we must rid ourselves of two delusions. On the one hand, all the great religions try to persuade us that immortality is just around the corner. Yet capitalism, our other spiritual enemy, constantly beguiles us to steal it. Via profound engagements with some of the greatest philosophers and theologians in history.
