    A timeless volume to be treasured, The Stone Reader provides an unparalleled overview of contemporary philosophy. Once solely the province of ivory tower professors and college classrooms, contemporary philosophy was finally emancipated from its academic closet in 2010, when the Stone was launched in the New York Times. First appearing as an online series, the column quickly attracted millions of readers through its accessible examination of universal topics like the nature of science, consciousness, and morality, while also probing more contemporary issues such as the morality of drones, gun control, and the gender divide. The Stone Reader presents 133 meaningful and influential essays from the series, placing nearly the entirety of modern philosophical discourse in the listener’s reach. The audiobook, divided into four broad sections: Philosophy, Science, Religion and Morals, and Society, opens with a series of questions about the scope, history, and identity of philosophy. What are the practical uses of philosophy? Does the discipline, begun in the West in ancient Greece with Socrates, favor men and exclude women? Does the history and study of philosophy betray a racial bias against nonwhite thinkers, or geographical bias toward the West? These questions and others form a foundation for listeners as the audiobook moves to the second section, Science, where some of our most urgent contemporary philosophical debates are taking place. Will artificial intelligence compromise our morality? Does neuroscience undermine our free will? Is there a legitimate place for the humanities in a world where science and technology appear to rule? Should the evidence for global warming change the way we live or die? In the book’s third section, Religion and Morals, we find philosophy where it is often at its best, working through the arguments provoked by competing moral theories in the face of real-life issues and rigorously addressing familiar ethical dilemmas in a new light. Can we have a true moral life without belief in God? What are the dangers of moral relativism? In its final part, Society, The Stone Reader returns to its origins as a forum to encourage philosophers who are willing to engage closely, critically, and analytically with the affairs of the day, including economic inequality, technology, and racial discrimination. In directly confronting events like the September 11 attacks, the killing of Trayvon Martin, and the Sandy Hook School massacre, the essays here reveal the power of philosophy to help shape our viewpoints on nearly every issue we face today.

    The author of the international bestseller Happiness makes a passionate case for altruism—and why we need it now more than ever. In Happiness, Matthieu Ricard demonstrated that true happiness is not tied to fleeting moments or sensations but is an enduring state of soul rooted in mindfulness and compassion for others. Now he turns his lens from the personal to the global with a rousing argument that altruism—genuine concern for the well-being of others—could be the saving grace of the twenty-first century. It is, he believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and environment in the long term. Ricard’s message has been taken up by major economists and thinkers, including Dennis Snower, Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz, and George Soros. Matthieu Ricard makes a robust and passionate case for cultivating altruistic love and compassion as the best means for simultaneously benefitting ourselves and our society. It’s a fresh outlook on an ardent struggle—and one that just might make the world a better place.

    Discover—or rediscover—your passion for life. What inspires passion in your life and what defeats it? How do you lose it and how do you get it back? In this exuberant and compelling book, Gregg Levoy, bestselling author of Callings, explores how you can cultivate not just a specific passion, but passion as a mindset that helps bring vitality to all your engagements, from work and relationships to creativity and spiritual life. Vital Signs examines the endless tug-of-war between passion and security, the wild and the tame, our natural selves and our conditioned selves, and shows us how to stay engaged with the world and resist the downward-pulling forces that can drain our vitality. Vital Signs also encourages courageous inquiry into our dispassion—where we’re numb, depressed, stuck, and bored in our lives—so that we can rework these tendencies in ourselves and claim our rightful inheritance of vitality.

    New York Times bestselling author William J. Bennett uses stories, essays, historical vignettes, and contemporary profiles to explore and explain what it means to be a man. Fashioning men has never been easy, but today it seems particularly tough. Boys need heroes to embody the everlasting qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. Without such role models, boys will naturally choose perpetual childhood over the rigors of becoming a man—as many women, teachers, coaches, employers, and adults in authority can quickly attest. Too many boys and men waste time in pointless and soulless activities, unmindful of their responsibilities, uncaring in their pursuits. Have we forgotten how to raise men, how to lead our boys into manhood? In The Book of Man, Bennett charts a clearer course, offering a positive, encouraging, uplifting, realizable idea of manhood, redolent of history and human nature, and practical for contemporary life. Like his classic The Book of Virtues, Bennett uses profiles, stories, letters, poems, and myths to bring his subject to life, defining what a man should be, how he should live, and to what he should aspire in several key areas of life.

    What are the most common dreams, and why do we have them? What does a dream about death mean? What do dreams of swimming, failing, or flying symbolize? First published by Sigmund Freud in 1899, The Interpretation of Dreams considers why we dream and what it means in the larger picture of our psychological lives. Delving into theories of manifest and latent dream content, the special language of dreams, dreams as wish fulfillment, the significance of childhood experiences, and much more, Freud, widely considered the “father of psychoanalysis,” thoroughly and thoughtfully examines dream psychology. Encompassing dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, this landmark text presents Freud’s legendary work as a tool for comprehending our sleeping experiences.

    Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time, including Thomas Edison, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Joseph Stalin, Theodore Roosevelt, F. W. Woolworth, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, William H. Taft, and Woodrow Wilson. Twenty years later, in 1928, Hill’s Philosophy of Achievement was offered as a formula for rags to riches success and was published as The Law of Success. This life changing guide of sixteen lessons has sold millions of copies for nearly three-quarters of a century and was his first master work before Think and Grow Rich, one of the bestselling books of all time.  Now you can hear twenty-four hours of the incredible philosophy upon which personal success is built, including: • The Master Mind: who can profit most by the law of success philosophy and your six most dangerous enemies• A Definite Chief Aim: instructions for applying its principles• Self-Confidence: heredity, the self-confidence formula, and the power of habit and discontentment• The Habit of Saving: walls of limitation, the slavery of debt, mastering the fear of poverty, “I have made a million dollars but I haven’t got a cent,” and opportunities that come to those who save• Initiative and Leadership: the penalty of leadership and intolerance• Imagination: how it relates to success• Enthusiasm: how it affects you and others, the psychology of good clothes and the seven deadly horsemen• Self-Control: why poverty is the richest experience that can come to a child• The Habit of Doing More Than Paid For: the law of increasing returns• Pleasing Personality: three different plans• Accurate Thought: the principles involved in accurate thinking and a chief aim• Concentration: persuasion vs. force• Cooperation: power through cooperation and your standing army• Failure: the turning points to opportunity• Tolerance: the plan• The Golden Rule: the power of prayer

    This daily digest of intellectual challenge and learning will arouse curiosity, refresh knowledge, expand horizons, and keep the mind sharp Millions of Americans keep bedside books of prayer and meditative reflection―collections of daily passages to stimulate spiritual thought and advancement. The Intellectual Devotional is a secular version of the same―a collection of 365 short lessons that will inspire and invigorate the reader every day of the year. Each daily digest of wisdom is drawn from one of seven fields of knowledge: history, literature, philosophy, mathematics and science, religion, fine arts, and music. Impress your friends by explaining Plato’s Cave Allegory, pepper your cocktail party conversation with opera terms, and unlock the mystery of how batteries work. Daily readings range from important passages in literature to basic principles of physics, from pivotal events in history to images of famous paintings with accompanying analysis. The book’s goal is to refresh knowledge we’ve forgotten, make new discoveries, and exercise modes of thinking that are ordinarily neglected once our school days are behind us. Offering an escape from the daily grind to contemplate higher things, The Intellectual Devotional is a great way to awaken in the morning or to revitalize one’s mind before retiring in the evening.
