The cartoons offer a rare blend of spirituality, philosophy and humour, with a Buddhist tone. The humour is based on a 'how not to' approach o spiritual practice, as the young novice Bodhi stumbles into every pitfall along the path to enlightenment, highlighting the foibles and universal tangles that people recognise in their own lives.

The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work
Botton, Alain de
ISBN: 0241143535
Pantheon Books July 2009  2009 
  8vo hardcover in d/w. 352pp near fine. We spend most of our waking lives at work - in occupations often chosen by our unthinking sixteen-year-old selves. And yet we rarely ask ourselves how we got there or what it might mean for us. Equally intrigued by work's pleasures and its pains, Alain de Botton here heads out into the under-charted worlds of the office, the factory, the fishing fleet and the logistics centre, ears and eyes open to the beauty, interest and sheer strangeness of the modern workplace. Along the way he tries to answer some of the most urgent questions we can ask about work: Why do we do it? What makes it pleasurable? What is its meaning? And why do we daily exhaust not only ourselves but also the planet? Characteristically lucid, witty and inventive, Alain de Botton's 'song for occupations' is a celebration and exploration of an aspect of life which is all too often ignored and yet as central to us as our love lives.

History and Subjectivity: The Transformation of Marxist Theory
Gottlieb, Roger S.
ISBN: 0877224943
Temple Univ Press 1987  1987 
  8vo hardcover 318pp index, b/w illus. very good+ / very good d/w. Can Marxism still serve the American left? History and Subjectivity answers this question by synthesizing the conflicting perspectives of traditional Marxism, Western and neo-Marxism, socialist-feminism, and various minority political movements into a comprehensive and original social theory. nnIn the last seventy years, social change and the failure of leftist movements have made it necessary to transform Marxist theory. Undermined by its own theoretical success, traditional Marxism mistakenly assumed that Marx's understanding of competitive capitalism could be the model for theories of any society. Roger Gottlieb argues convincingly that the transformation of Marxist theory requires a fundamentally new understanding of social primacy. nnGottlieb draws on resources from virtually all areas of contemporary radical social theory. This interdisciplinary approach results in a sweeping synthesis of existing Marxist thought and an original and compelling social theory. nnFrom the PublishernAn original social theory synthesizing conflicting perspectives of Marxism

The muse in the machine : computers and creative thought

London Fourth Estate 1994  1994 
  8vo hardcover 211pp index. very good+ / very good+ d/w. Designed for a wide audience, this book claims that the standard approach to human thought is wrong in fundamental ways. The author challenges, in particular, the views of Daniel Dennett ("Consciousness Explained") and Roger Penrose ("The Emperor's New Mind"): first, emotion is a necessary part of thought and so a thinking computer will not be possible until a feeling computer is possible; second, reasoning, logic and analysis are only part of the way we think - there are also other kinds of thinking, such as poetic and religious; third, the nature of thought is intertwined with the nature of art. He also discusses philosophy, psychology, technology, art and literature, in particular the poetry of Wordsworth, Blake, Keats and the Bible.

  8vo softcover 395pp index. very good+. Peter Singer's remarkably clear and comprehensive Practical Ethics has become a classic introduction to applied ethics since its publication in 1979 and has been translated into many languages. For this second edition the author has revised all the existing chapters, added two new ones, and updated the bibliography. He has also added an appendix describing some of the deep misunderstanding of, and consequent violent reaction to, the book in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland where the book has tested the limits of freedom of speech. The focus of the book is the application of ethics to difficult and controversial social questions: equality and discrimination by race, sex, ability, or species; abortion, euthanasia, and embryo experimentation; the moral status of animals; political violence and civil disobedience; overseas aid and the obligation to assist others; responsibility for the environment; the treatment of refugees. Singer explains and assesses relevant arguments in a perspicuous, non-doctrinaire way. He structures the book to show how contemporary controversies often have deep philosophical roots; and he presents an ethical theory of his own that can be applied consistently and convincingly to all the practical cases. The book's primary readership remains teachers and students of ethics whether in philosophy or some other branch of the humanities or social sciences. However, such is the clarity of the book's style and structure that it should interest any thinking person concerned with the most difficult social problems facing us as we approach the twenty-first century.

Conversations with Anthony Giddens; Making Sense of Modernity (Polity Conversations Series)
Giddens, Anthony,
ISBN: 0745620493
Polity Press, Oxford, 1998. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. Anthony Giddens has been described as 'the most important English social philosopher of our time'. Over twenty-five years, and even more books, he has established himself as the most widely-read and widely-cited social theorist of his generation. His ideas have profoundly influenced the writing and teaching of sociology and social theory throughout the English-speaking world. In recent years, his writing has become much more explicitly political, and in 1996 he took up his high-profile appointment as Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. It is in this new position and with these new political ideas that he has been described as the key intellectual figure of New Labour in Britain. Following the astonishing success of Labour in the 1997 General Election, his ideas have been the focus of intense interest. In this series of extended interviews with Chris Pierson, Giddens lays out with customary clarity and directness the principal themes in the development of his social theory and the distinctive political agenda which he recommends. – rear panel blurb Size: Trade Paperback.

Deleuze and Philosophy; The Difference Engineer (Warwick Studies in European Philosophy)
Pearson, Keith Ansell – editor,
ISBN: 0415142709
Routledge, London, 1997. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. The work of Gilles Deleuze has had an impact far beyond philosophy. He is among Foucault and Derrida as one of the most cited of all contemporary French thinkers. Never a student 'of' philosophy, Deleuze was always philosophical and many influential poststructuralist and postmodernist texts can be traced to his celebrated resurrection of Nietzsche against Hegel in his "Nietzsche and Philosophy", from which this collection draws its title. This searching new collection considers Deleuze's relation to the philosophical tradition and beyond to the future of philosophy, science and technology. In addition to considering Deleuze's imaginative readings of classic figures such as Spinoza and Kant, the essays also point to the meaning of Deleuze on 'monstrous' and machinic thinking, on philosophy and engineering, on philosophy and biology, on modern painting and literature.– rear panel blurb the book is 2nd hand, it is free of annotation, and there is no damage to describe.

There is no clairvoyance. How, then, can we have parlayed this meager sensory input into a full-blown scientific theory of the world? This is itself a scientific question. The pursuit of it, with free use of scientific theory, is what I call naturalized epistemology. The Roots of Reference falls within that domain. Its more specific concern, within that domain, is reference to concrete and abstract objects: what such reference consists in, and how we achieve it.– rear panel blurb Size: Trade Paperback. 168 pages.
