Десет Цинични Есета (популярно мировъзрение) — Част Първа by Chris Myrski
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 36,050. Language: Bulgarian. Published: November 1, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Bulgarian. Това е философска книга, но тя е популярна и без особени термини, така че е достъпна за всички. В определена степен цинизмът е мировъзрение, което не чете морал (даже обратното), и не идеализира нещата, но, независимо от това, предлага сериозен поглед за света. Според мен тя би трябвало да е интересна за всички млади хора (а и за възрастните), но все пак не е развлекателно четиво.
Десять Циничных Эссе (популярное мировоззрение) — Часть Первая by Chris Myrski
Price: $2.49 USD. Words: 33,030. Language: Russian. Published: October 1, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Russian. Это философская книга, но она популярная, без особых терминов, так что доступная для всех. В определенной мере цинизм это мировоззрение, которое не читает мораль (а даже напротив), и не идеализирует вещи, но, тем не менее, дает серьезный взгляд на мир. По моему она должна быть интересной для всех молодых людей (а и для взрослых), но все таки не для развлекательного чтения.

Ten Cynical Essays (Popular Worldview) — Part One by Chris Myrski
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 40,560. Language: English. Published: September 1, 2017. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
This is philosophical book, but it is popular and without special terms so that is accessible for all. To a certain extent the cynicism is worldview that does not preach moral and does not idealize the things, but, still, gives serious look about the world. In my view it must be interesting for all young people (and for the older, too), but nevertheless it is not entertainment reading.

Ίσως έτσι να νιώθει κανείς, όταν μετά από ένα ευκαταφρόνητο χρονικό διάστημα υπερνικά τα εμπόδια κι οδηγείται στην αυτοολοκλήρωση. Ίσως πάλι όμως, εκείνο το κενό που κρατά ο καθένας για το αύριο να μην πρέπει να καλυφθεί από κανέναν και για κανένα λόγο. Ίσως πρέπει πάντα να υπάρχει ένα κενό μέσα μας που να μας ωθεί προς το ολόκληρο...
