Contra Socrates by Edward E. Rochon

A critique of Socrates, especially his trial and death. He claims to know nothing and blabs on about all sorts of things with presumption. Knowing nothing, what authority has he to call this or that good, foolish, etc.? He aided and abetted his own death. We see him as a death worshiping deceiver.
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.
