Philip E. Muskett, former Surgeon Superintendent to the NSW government, wrote in 1893: “...our people live in direct opposition to their semi-tropical environment ... the consumption of butcher’s meat and tea is enormously in excess of any common sense requirements ..” The Art of Living in Australia offers advice for healthy living. In an effort to promote better eating-habits, Muskett presents a carefully researched picture of climate; of the history of cookery instruction in schools; of the value of salads; of problems and methods of management, current in 1893, in the fishing, oyster growing and wine making industries. The book was dedicated with “hope for the development of all the great natural food industries of our country”. Reading it today, we have a measure to show how far we have come. First published in 1893.

No writings of Epictetus himself are really known. His discourses were transcribed and compiled by his pupil Arrian (author of the Anabasis Alexandri). The main work is The Discourses, four books of which have been preserved (out of an original eight). Arrian also compiled a popular digest, entitled the Enchiridion, or Handbook. In a preface to the Discourses, addressed to Lucius Gellius, Arrian states that "whatever I heard him say I used to write down, word for word, as best I could, endeavouring to preserve it as a memorial, for my own future use, of his way of thinking and the frankness of his speech."

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this deeply considered meditation on aging in Western culture, Jan Baars argues that, in today’s world, living longer does not necessarily mean living better. He contends that there has been an overall loss of respect for aging, to the point that understanding and "dealing with" aging people has become a process focused on the decline of potential and the advance of disease rather than on the accumulation of wisdom and the creation of new skills. To make his case, Baars compares and contrasts the works of such modern-era thinkers as Foucault, Heidegger, and Husserl with the thought of Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Cicero, and other Ancient and Stoic philosophers. He shows how people in the classical period—less able to control health hazards—had a far better sense of the provisional nature of living, which led to a philosophical and religious emphasis on cultivating the art of living and the idea of wisdom. This is not to say that modern society’s assessments of aging are insignificant, but they do need to balance an emphasis on the measuring of age with the concept of "living in time." Gerontologists, philosophers, and students will find Baars' discussion to be a powerful, perceptive conversation starter. -- W. Andrew Achenbaum, author of Older Americans, Vital Communities
