The Philosophy of Selfness: Empower Your Thoughts

by Ian Timothy

My first book ‘Never Let Anything Worry You’ was in constant evolution. The later editions had become more philosophical and less ‘self-help’. I decided to rewrite the book, and when finished it warranted a new title.

‘The Philosophy of Selfness’ asks the reader to think about their environments in a clear-minded way. It is focussed on material security and emotional strength. If we are to survive in today’s fast-paced world, our choices should be based on critical thinking. Critical analysis helps guides us to see every aspect of a problem and makes solving it more natural.

Remove the limitation of ‘Confirmational Bias’ and success in any subject becomes a probability, not a possibility. Understanding why we dislike something is more important than knowing we like something. And this is the objective of this book. There is no doubt many will disagree with the philosophies and if they understand why this is so: they will benefit their lives.

The book is about success, material security, emotional stability and removal of fear. It guides the reader to be free from the constraints of society and the establishment. The Philosophy of Selfness asks the reader to accept they are their best friend, confident and success story.

If the desire is to be a winner and become secure ‘The Philosophy of Selfness’ may offer a few solutions.

Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives (Palgrave Socio-Legal Studies)

Drawing on new research material from ten European countries, Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives brings together a range of detailed accounts of the legal and bureaucratic processes by which asylum claims are decided. The book includes a legal overview of European asylum determination procedures, followed by sections on the diverse actors involved, the means by which they communicate, and the ways in which they make life and death decisions on a daily basis. It offers a contextually rich account that moves beyond doctrinal law to uncover the gaps and variances between formal policy and legislation, and law as actually practiced.

The contributors employ a variety of disciplinary perspectives – sociological, anthropological, geographical and linguistic – but are united in their use of an ethnographic methodological approach. Through this lens, the book captures the confusion, improvisation, inconsistency, complexity and emotional turmoil inherent to the process of claiming asylum in Europe.

Gentry: Social Change in Java: the Tale of a Family

by Umar Kayam

From their origin ‘in paddy mud’ during the final decades of the Dutch East Indies, to unimagined roles within the new structures of a modernising Indonesia, ‘Gentry’ is the saga of an extended Javanese family heroically pursuing its dream of betterment through a social leap. There was in that era, at the start of this story, a unique route by which an exceptionally determined peasant might attain the status of a ‘priyayi’–functionary gentry with a government salary, bureaucratic aristocrats with duties divorced from manual labour, bearers of noble principles of responsibility, figures infinitely esteemed by the illiterate masses below them. That road was education. In 1920s Java, as little as five years of primary schooling–when obtainable–could make the difference. Sastrodarsono’s epic begins in the dearth and misery fixed in the race-memory of his forebears, and too in an awareness of where history is tending. The good will of a local priyayi administrator gains for the young man sufficient schooling to qualify him for a position as a humble village-teacher. He has ‘mastered the sciences’, in the view of the astonished countryside from which he derives. Out of him will spring and extend a clan of such gentry: his children, who will now be born priyayi, shall go on to greater conquests, higher levels of education and prestige, to further consolidate their gentility. And as they do go forward–and Umar Kayam movingly and with wry humour describes the parade of those generations, progressing in joy and in sorrow to further their founder’s grand ideal–the immemorial stability of the Indies is unpredictably riven by war, invasion, a liberation struggle, rebellion and coup, and by the stresses consequent on an awakening country confronting modernity. Ultimately, ‘Darsono’s striving addresses to the reader and to all social humanity an inevitable question: have we any choice but to battle and endeavour? Kayam answers it as well as anyone can: One must go on, whatever the difficulties surrounding life; go on and take as many others as possible forward with oneself, in the spirit of duty to family, to nation, and to the human race. The simple ambitions of a Javanese peasant are in this book transformed into a philosophical quest of universal relevance.

Existence: Why Your Worldview Matters

by Ray F. Childers

One’s worldview is the framework within which one interprets the past, acts in the present, and prepares for the future. It determines one’s character and behavior — at work, and home, and with one’s neighbor. The reader is invited to consider their existence, purpose, and destiny in light of a number of worldviews — including Existential, Darwinian, and Biblical worldviews. The author had a career as a research and development scientist, whose own worldview of origins shifted from one of Darwinian evolution to Biblical creation after looking at the data around him and coming to know Jesus. Topics examined include theories of origins, intelligent design, fossils, measures of time, knowledge and information, good vs. evil, and the metaphysical.
