Searching for Galileo
Price: $12.99 USD. Words: 185,910. Language: English. Published: June 9, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Travel » Road travel, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
On the surface Searching for Galileo is a travel book in which the author road trips once around the USA, but at its centre stands an exploration of the human brain. ‘How it thinks, what it thinks, and why it thinks what it thinks’. Searching for Galileo contains a message that could not be more perfectly timed, as the USA and the world go through yet another cycle of change that could well b
The End Of Philosophy: Tales Of Reality
Price: Free! Words: 116,930. Language: English. Published: May 17, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Psychology » Industrial & organizational psychology
The End Of Philosophy goes full circle from nihilistic desperation to farcical comedy. Twelve chapters dismantle everything you thought you ever knew – three others help you laugh at the resulting dilemma. A nonetheless serious theme is that we humans must transcend our current thought paradigms if we are not to prove too clever for our own good.

Eye Exams: A Book of Epigrams.
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 16,780. Language: English. Published: February 14, 2018 by Propertius Press. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
Epigrams can be stabs at thought, sudden insights, or summations of a life. The fact that they don’t parade in the best dress gives freedom to all types of garb; even so, occasional nakedness is exposed. Ultimately writing epigrams exposes the reader as well as the writer, and by extension all human nature -- broadening our observations of the species. The sole object is understanding.

We have very little understanding about the most fundamental aspect to our existence, our consciousness. Our consciousness is what makes us unique in the cosmos. What does it mean to be conscious? This book has been written to explore many of the questions around the nature of consciousness and perception.
Десет Цинични Есета (популярно мировъзрение) — Част Втора
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 38,510. Language: Bulgarian. Published: February 1, 2018. 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.
Topological (in) Hegel: Topological Notions of Qualitative quantity and Multiplicity in Hegel’s Fourfold of Infinities
Price: $55.00 USD. Words: 182,310. Language: English. Published: January 23, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy
The present study is interdisciplinary, involving the interrelations between philosophy and topology, where topology is understood in both meanings as mathematical discipline and rhetorical notions, and culminating to what I regard as topological philosophy or philosophical topology, based in particular on Hegel’s notion of multiplicity.
Десять Циничных Эссе (популярное мировоззрение) — Часть Вторая
Price: $2.49 $1.99 USD. (20% off until Jan. 1, 2020!) Words: 35,030. Language: Russian. Published: January 1, 2018. 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 Two
Price: $2.99 $2.49 USD. (17% off until Jan. 1, 2020!) Words: 43,440. Language: English. Published: December 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.
