A Wayside Tavern tells the story of a Suffolk drinking place from the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, until the present day. The Roman veteran, crippled and left behind, worshipped Mithras, so the place became known as the One Bull and down through the centuries it became a clearing house for contraband, a miniature Hell Fire Club, a fashionable hotel, a mere pub. Across the yard, was the church of St Cerdic, king and martyr, who fought the Danes and was famous for the miracles performed at his shrine. His remains were lost in the Reformation but something remained. Inside the inn, despite all external changes, one passion raged – to retain possession. 1. Language: English.

The author defends nonconceptualism, the claim that perceptual experience is nonconceptual and has nonconceptual content. Continuing the heated and complex debate surrounding this topic over the past two decades, she offers a sustained defense of a novel version of the view, Modest Nonconceptualism, and provides a systematic overview of some of the central controversies in the debate. An explication of the notion of nonconceptual content and a distinction between nonconceptualist views of different strengths starts off the volume, then the author goes on to defend participants in the debate over nonconceptual content against the allegation that their failure to distinguish between a state view and a content view of (non)conceptualism leads to fatal problems for their views. Next, she makes a case for nonconceptualism by refining some of the central arguments for the view, such as the arguments from fineness of grain, from contradictory contents, from animal and infant perception, and from concept acquisition. Then, two central objections against nonconceptualism are rebutted in a novel way: the epistemological objection and the objection from objectivity. Modest Nonconceptualism allows for perceptual experiences to involve some conceptual elements. It emphasizes the relevance of concept employment for an understanding of conceptual and nonconceptual mental states and identifies the nonconceptual content of experience with scenario content. It insists on the possibility of genuine content-bearing perceptual experience without concept possession and is thus in line with the Autonomy Thesis. Finally, it includes an account of perceptual justification that relies on the external contents of experience and belief, yet is compatible with epistemological internalism. Eva Schmidt is a Research Assistant at the Department of Philosophy at Saarland University, Germany, and a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Luxembourg. Her areas of specialization include philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of perception. She has published several papers on nonconceptual content and other issues in the philosophy of perception.
Summary, analysis, and review of Ryan Holiday´s and Stephen Hanselman´s The Daily Stoic by Instaread. Preview: The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman is an introduction to the practical application of Stoic philosophy in the format of a daily devotional. Often derided as discouraging emotion, Stoicism is a philosophy that encourages discipline, fortitude, and control of perceptions. The greatest possession of a Stoic is reasoned choice, which cannot be taken away. There are three disciplines in the practice of Stoicism. Perception is the first discipline; it focuses on the need for accurate and unbiased observation of the world. This requires clarity of thought free from external influences or extreme emotions. This internal peace is reflected in the Stoic´s externally calm demeanor. A Stoic must be self-aware and have an unbiased perception of himself or herself. Action is the second discipline of Stoicism. Stoics act in the best interest of the self and others according to their values and the character they want to cultivate....

True happiness is an ´´inside job´´. Look at a happy person´s life and you don´t see any magic or unicorns. There´s nothing in them that isn´t also in you. Though external realities can certainly play a role, happiness doesn´t spring from what you have, what happens to you, the situation you are in, where you are, or anything else. In fact, if it was easy to be happy, this book would be a very short one! Happiness doesn´t have much to do with money, with achievement, or with possessions, because plenty of people have all three and are still not happy. In this guide, we´ll approach happiness not as something you have, but something you actively do, each and every day. The 7 Habits of Exceptionally Happy People will help you to: Understand and apply the key principles of living a happy life in an easy step-by-step way Let go of things, thoughts, behaviors, and people that do not serve you anymore Identify and use your unique strengths and virtues Realize that ´´huffy fluffy´´ concepts such as forgiveness, gratitude, and mindfulness are actually extremely powerful ...and much more inside! Learn how to love your life and become a happier person today! Are you ready? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Francie Wyck.

As children, we´re asked, ´´What do you want to be when you grow up?´´ As adults we´re asked, ´´What do you do for a living?´´ We identify with our jobs, they define us. We´re often so busy with our jobs, there´s little time to question our chosen paths. That is, until life steps in. The Great Recession of 2008 left hundreds of thousands feeling lost and insecure; a similar but much bigger event occurred in 1929. When such events occur, we could fall into despair or perhaps it could be the time to re-evaluate what we really want out of life. What is most important to you? Most of you would say that you´d like to be better, happier people. In their pursuit of happiness people have defined themselves by their careers, their money, their possessions. They have acted as though their self-esteem, their self-worth, could be bought. Material acquisition became a way of life. Bigger and more is better. And then in a nanosecond it all can disappear. Wealth vanishes, careers and jobs are wiped out. Then what? This paradigm could be referred to as living life outside in. Defining oneself by stuff that lies outside of our control, by how things appear on the outside, as though happiness and self-worth can be bought, is living outside in. This book focuses on a different paradigm: living inside out. Rather than defining oneself by titles, wealth, possessions, acquisitions, and other things, this model requires a look inside of ourselves to discover who we really are. It creates an empowering model that places individuals in control of their life, their personal value, and their happiness, rather than placing external circumstances in control of how we feel about ourselves. Religious thinkers, philosophers, secular humanists have for centuries argued that the pursuit of the ´´golden calf´´ will not provide ultimate happiness. 1. Language: English.

Three thousand years ago the Mongolian Kingdom of Shilla, under the leadership of a group of monks, developed an elaborate new system of hand-foot combat called Soo Bak. The skill and style was unique and it was important to ensure that this pure form was not corrupted or allowed to fall into the wrong hands. In an almost hidden labyrinth of caves far from the capital Tungka, the artists drew life-sized murals on the large cave walls of people practising all manner of early martial arts. Over the decades tombs were laid down. It is said that the ancient spirits watched over them, but all was not well. The Soo family; rulers of the small Soo kingdom, had long plotted to destroy the Shilla dynasty and secure the ancient parchments. They were determined to take possession of the ancient writings and drawings by any means. It was imperative to get the scribes work into trusted hands. In order for these chosen ones to leave the cave and carry the parchments into safe hands, someone from the outside world must open the external cave. However, as each half millennium passed, the power of the figures to materialise in this way diminished, and the year 1999 would mark the last chance... Enter friends Sam and Jim, who find themselves in the right time, at the right place...
Within every person, there is a longing that no amount of food, no career accomplishment, no possession can ever fill, for this is a longing of the spirit: the ever-present reminder that we are each blessed with a vast potential. In Appetites, best-selling author Geneen Roth looks beyond her 15 years of pioneering work with women, food, and body image to ask the greatest of questions: What truly nourishes the human spirit? Through the lens of her own life experience, Roth examines the core of spirituality and the feelings and behaviors that can mask it. What happens when deep inner need is answered only with external ´´satisfaction´´? Why is it that we are still left feeling empty, no matter how much we try to accomplish in a day? Appetites shows that beneath the frustration and unaccountable hunger you feel lies a reservoir of strength and courage, waiting to direct you to the true nourishment that you seek. 1.
