  • "We live in Social Space: A window to a new science"

    by Fred Emil Katz
    The physical sciences have produced remarkably successful science about physical space -- enabling us to go to outer space, and more. We do not have a comparable science about social space -- where we actually live our lives. Developing a viable science is crucial if our species is to survive. Don't forget, this past century, we humans killed over 100 million of our fellow human beings. Obviously we are not in control of our social space. My book is an effort to jump start a real scienc... more

  • Perceptions

    by Sam Mansourou
    The book criticizes vacant religious concepts and the complex appearing veils theologians attempt to conceal the vacancy with. Rather than criticize the three main religions for a general beleif in God, the way most "new athiest" books do, this book criticizes the influence of the religious masses. Please dont let highly religious readers review the book.I already know what they think of the book before they even read it. Sam Mansourou

    SEIZING THE ESSENCE is about the dynamics of Value that form man´s concept of reality.

  • Great Objectives

    by Robert D. Finch

The examples of great objectives that Mill cites include power, fame, and money. One wonders how seriously Mill was actually endorsing such aims to be the overarching objectives of living or whether he was simply expressing his finding that many people actually do take such aims as these for life. The contention is th... more
