EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Chocolate... sex... volunteer work... sport... art... spiritual rapture You cannot turn off the pleasure impulse. Better to join it - with discipline. In an eclectic mix of personal anecdote, psychological insight and philosophical musings, James Bampfield shines a new light on the role of pleasure in life. The whole spectrum of pleasure is explored and given meaning through his typology of ego pleasure, simple pleasure, soul pleasure and spirit pleasure. His suggestion is that we move away from a rigid truth perspective - characterized either by an over-focus on duty and obligation or on suffering and sacrifice - and prioritize enjoyment. Bouncing off thinkers such as Epicurus and Freud and spiritual figures such as the Buddha and the Dalai Lama, the author argues that pleasure offers a feminine balance to the exaggerated masculine pursuit of truth which has brought the world as much misery as 'progress'. As Eckhart Tolle did in The Power of Now, Bampfield introduces us to a new way of thinking about happiness, one that will lead us to greater personal fulfilment and, he believes, a more peaceful society.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"I have often wondered for what good end the sensations of Grief could be intended." -- Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson suffered during his life from periodic bouts of dejection and despair, shadowed intervals during which he was full of "gloomy forebodings" about what lay ahead. Not long before he composed the Declaration of Independence, the young Jefferson lay for six weeks in idleness and ill health at Monticello, paralyzed by a mysterious "malady." Similar lapses were to recur during anxious periods in his life, often accompanied by violent headaches. In Jefferson's Demons, Michael Knox Beran illuminates an optimistic man's darker side -- Jefferson as we have rarely seen him before. The worst of these moments came after his wife died in 1782. But two years later, after being dispatched to Europe, Jefferson recovered nerve and spirit in the salons of Paris, where he fell in love with a beautiful young artist, Maria Cosway. When their affair ended, Jefferson's health again broke down. He set out for the palms and temples of southern Europe, and though he did not know where the therapeutic journey would take him or where it would end, his encounter with the old civilizations of the Mediterranean was transformative. The Greeks and Romans taught him that a man could make productive use of his demons. Jefferson's immersion in the mystic truths of the Old World gave him insights into mysteries of life and art that Enlightenment philosophy had failed to supply. Beran skillfully shows how Jefferson drew on the esoteric lore he encountered to transform anxiety into action. On his return to America, Jefferson entered the most productive period of his life: He created a new political party, was elected president, and doubled the size of the country. His private labors were no less momentous...among them, the artistry of Monticello and the University of Virginia. Jefferson's Demons is an elegantly composed account of the strangeness and originality of one Founder's genius. Michael Knox Beran uncovers the maps Jefferson used to find his way out of dejection and to forge a new democratic culture for America. Here is a Jefferson who, with all his failings, remains one of his country's greatest teachers and prophets.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was the third United States President (1801-9) and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. An advocate of republicanism, he envisioned America as an 'Empire of Liberty' that would strive to promote freedom around the world. First published in 1853-4, this nine-volume edition of Jefferson's writings shows the breadth of his intellectual and political interests. His autobiography, letters, diaries and political memoranda reflect a life lived at the centre of pivotal events, including the French and American Revolutions, and the founding of a new nation. Through them we discover his contribution to the pursuit of world peace, the evolving relationships between the United States and the European powers, and the development of the American constitution and judicial system. Volume 2 continues with Jefferson's correspondence during his 1784-9 mission to Europe, which offers revealing accounts of the development of his political ideas.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book examines the revival of antique philosophy in the Renaissance as a literary preoccupation informed by wit. Humanists were more inspired by the fictionalized characters of certain wise fools, including Diogenes the Cynic, Socrates, Aesop, Democritus, and Heraclitus, than by codified systems of thought. Rich in detail, this study offers a systematic treatment of wide-ranging Renaissance imagery and metaphors and presents a detailed iconography of certain classical philosophers. Ultimately, the problems of Renaissance humanism are revealed to reflect the concerns of humanists in the twenty-first century.
