Brilliant Minds. Big Ideas.

My first thought in the morning is more likely to be "What's for breakfast?" than "Does the universe really exist or is it something akin to a hologram?"

Thankfully, there are people to help me with the heavy thinking:
  • Søren Kierkegaard: In Spiritual Writings, Oxford theologian George Pattison translates and selects Søren Kierkegaard's previously neglected writings on spirituality—works that greatly deepen our understanding of the influential thinker.
  • E.F. Schumacher: Small Is Beautiful is a call to end excessive consumption and an eminently logical agrument for building our economies around the needs of communities—not corporations.
  • Arthur Schopenhauer: I was surprised that there wasn't an English-language anthology of Scopenhauer's works. Now, there is The Essential Schopenhauer—edited by Wolfgang Schirmacher, president of the International Schopenhauer Association.
  • Adam Bly: In Science Is Culture, Adam—founder of Seed magazine—brings together a unique collection of conversations between prominent scientists, artists, novelists, philosophers and other thinks who are tearing down the wall between science and culture.

You'll find more big ideas in our Philosophy catalog.
