Essays of Montaigne

by Michel De Montaigne

The present publication is intended to supply a recognised deficiency in our literatureâ??a library edition of the Essays of Montaigne. This great French writer deserves to be regarded as a classic, not only in the land of his birth, but in all countries and in all literatures. His Essays, which are at once the most celebrated and the most permanent of his productions, form a magazine out of which such minds as those of Bacon and Shakespeare did not disdain to help themselves; and, indeed, as Hallam observes, the Frenchman’s literary importance largely results from the share which his mind had in influencing other minds, coeval and subsequent. But, at the same time, estimating the value and rank of the essayist, we are not to leave out of the account the drawbacks and the circumstances of the period: the imperfect state of education, the comparative scarcity of books, and the limited opportunities of intellectual intercourse. Montaigne freely borrowed of others, and he has found men willing to borrow of him as freely. We need not wonder at the reputation which he with seeming facility achieved. He was, without being aware of it, the leader of a new school in letters and morals. His book was different from all others which were at that date in the world. It diverted the ancient currents of thought into new channels. It told its readers, with unexampled frankness, what its writer’s opinion was about men and things, and threw what must have been a strange kind of new light on many matters but darkly understood. Above all, the essayist uncased himself, and made his intellectual and physical organism public property. He took the world into his confidence on all subjects. His essays were a sort of literary anatomy, where we get a diagnosis of the writer’s mind, made by himself at different levels and under a large variety of operating influences.
Of all egotists, Montaigne, if not the greatest, was the most fascinating, because, perhaps, he was the least affected and most truthful. What he did, and what he had professed to do, was to dissect his mind, and show us, as best he could, how it was made, and what relation it bore to external objects. He investigated his mental structure as a schoolboy pulls his watch to pieces, to examine the mechanism of the works; and the result, accompanied by illustrations abounding with originality and force, he delivered to his fellow-men in a book.
Eloquence, rhetorical effect, poetry, were alike remote from his design. He did not write from necessity, scarcely perhaps for fame. But he desired to leave France, nay, and the world, something to be remembered by, something which should tell what kind of a man he wasâ??what he felt, thought, sufferedâ??and he succeeded immeasurably, I apprehend, beyond his expectations…



War and Peace (Complete Version,Best Navigation, Free AudioBook) (A to Z Classics)

by Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy

War and Peace is a novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869 in Russkii Vestnik, which tells the story of Russian society during the Napoleonic Era. It is usually described as one of Tolstoy’s two major masterpieces (the other being Anna Karenina) as well as one of the world’s greatest novels.
War and Peace offered a new kind of fiction, with a great many characters caught up in a plot that covered nothing less than the grand subjects indicated by the title, combined with the equally large topics of youth, marriage, age, and death. Though it is often called a novel today, it broke so many conventions of the form that it was not considered a novel in its time. Indeed, Tolstoy himself considered Anna Karenina (1878) to be his first attempt at a novel in the European sense.



Real Communism: Democratic Local Self Government: Maximize Human Needs, not Corporate Profits

by Alan Strelzoff

There are problems in our existing capitalist system which I propose can only be solved by transitioning to real Communism. I define real Communism to be quite different than that which occurred in Russia where it ended up as a Dictatorship. This can not be what Marx had in mind when he described Communism as, “The Emancipation of Mankind”. Certainly emancipation has to be a totally democratic system. I propose a highly decentralized system of local self government. I describe how production can be matched with needs in the absence of money. There are many problems that arise such as shortages and incentive. I propose solutions to these problems and also discuss other important issues such as culture, religion, science, and other topics that make up a description of real Communism. I am opposed to an insurrection and propose to build a mass movement that can muster a vast majority of support before effecting the transition to Communism.

In the first chapter, I list all the problems in Capitalism and argue that they are all reflections of the profit system. I focus on racism as the main bulwark of our current Capitalist system. The US is drifting towards Fascism as racism and Xenophobic anti immigration intensify. I claim that automation and artificial intelligence make Capitalism completely untenable as jobs disappear.

In the second chapter, I present my views of Russian history and attempt to show where the Russian Communists went wrong. Essentially, they never really attempted to build Communism at all, but rather built another form of Capitalism.

In the third chapter, I outline my proposal for how real Communism could be built and how I believe it could work. Automation will work for us by eliminating
repetitive jobs that humans need not do. This will leave us free to do creative work like art, science, sports, and hobbies.

The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man (Free Audiobook) (A to Z Classics)

by James Weldon Johnson

One of the most prominent African-Americans of his time, James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938) was a successful lawyer, educator, social reformer, songwriter, and critic. But it was as a poet and novelist that he achieved lasting fame.
Among his most famous works, The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man in many ways parallels Johnson’s own remarkable life. First published in 1912, the novel relates, through an anonymous narrator, events in the life of an American of mixed ethnicity whose exceptional abilities and ambiguous appearance allow him unusual social mobility â?? from the rural South to the urban North and eventually to Europe.
A radical departure from earlier books by black authors, this pioneering work not only probes the psychological aspects of “passing for white” but also examines the American caste and class system. The human drama is powerful and revealing â?? from the narrator’s persistent battles with personal demons to his firsthand observations of a Southern lynching and the mingling of races in New York’s bohemian atmosphere at the turn of the century.
Revolutionary for its time, the Autobiography remains both an unrivaled example of black expression and a major contribution to American literature.



Games, Life, and Academia

by Michelle Deerwester-Dalrymple

Games, Life, and Academia is a fun book of essays on trends and issues found in the video game playing industry of the last 15 years. Some of the essays focus on the academics of game and gameplay, while others are concerned with the impact games have on life and family. Two essays focus on women in gaming; another on physical forms, specifically women’s bodies, as presented in video games. Another essay details the importance of games as platforms for speech, while another examines the potential for games to unify people as a whole. The last three essays deal with archetypes, celebrities, and the potential for education.



I AM the I AM: Know that you and God are one

by P.L. Hogan

Philosophers, throughout the ages, have delved into the relationship between God and Man. In general society has accepted the message put forth by the major religions and never looks under the cover for a truer meaning. Great thinkers have put forth their ideas and concepts giving us additional thoughts to ponder. You and I are individuals, and being one lets us form our own opinion on how we should celebrate our connection with spirit. There are over 7 billion individuals on this planet and there are over 7 billion paths to God. There is no cookie cutter version of religion that will fit every person, we must read and absorb as much as possible in order for us to make any type of educated decision. I hope that I can provide, in this book, a possible different way of reviewing and analyzing just what it is that you believe. Are you your own person and have your own mind or are your thoughts and deeds someone else’s? Namaste.
