CHANGE: Understanding the times we live in (iDISCOVER Book 1)

by Daniel Abodunde

You do not wait for things to happen, you either make them happen or they never happen. Therefore change is not a recipe book for change. It is written to stand alone as a collection of tactics and strategies for you to employ to increase your odds that the change you want is possible, through fruition, to “the way it is.”
Therefore, If you see a need or an opportunity to improve the long-term health of your attitude towards change , and you want to see your idea through, and you are willing to work at it, I believe that Change, as a coaching guide, can provide the key.

Signature Pieces: On the Institution of Authorship

by Peggy Kamuf

Some contemporary approaches to literature still accept the separation of historical, biographical, external concerns from formal, internal ones. On the borderline that lends this division between inside and outside its apparent coherence is signature. In Peggy Kamuf’s view, studying signature will help us to rediscover some of the stakes of literary writing beyond the historicist/formalist opposition. Drawing on Derrida’s extensive work on signatures and proper names, Kamuf investigates authorial signature in key writers from Rousseau to Woolf, as well as the implications of signature for the institutions of authorship and criticism.

filosofí solo se puede pensar éticamente si se piensa libremente (Spanish Edition)

by Ana Pinillos

Las discusiones éticas que se han generado a partir de los avances de la tecnología han abierto una posibilidad para que la relación entre filosofía e inteligencia artificial se complemente y fortalezca. Existe una relación entre ambas muy interesante e importante de reconocer. El siguiente ensayo tratará de mostrar por qué se debe partir y comprender la estructura del ser previo a iniciar una discusión ética., tomando de base la ontología fundamental del filósofo Martin Heidegger. Un proyecto de tecnología puede ser ético únicamente si tiene las condiciones de apertura y libertad. No debemos tener miedo o sentirnos inferiores ante las capacidades de la inteligencia artificial, sino involucrarnos y aprender. Entre ambas, filosofía e inteligencia artificial se puede motivar un pensar indeterminado, un pensar que deje pensar al otro.

Basic Karma Lectures (Basic Anthroposophy Book 4)

by Rudolf Steiner

In these introductory lectures on karma, as Steiner begins by explaining that, although it is not present in exoteric Christianity, in the inner circles of esoteric Christianity, karma was continuously taught. It was important that each of us go through at least one incarnation without awareness of reincarnation and karma, but as this is accomplished, the time will come when reincarnation and karma must be widely taught again.
The second lecture is devoted mostly to the karma of the temperaments. Good habits in one incarnation yield good health in the next, and vice versa. Materialism will have dire effects including universal, congenital nervousness if it is allowed to continue. This is one of the main reasons why the wise guides of humanity decided to begin revealing spiritual wisdom through theosophy.
The third lecture makes it clear that we can speak of karma only since the Luciferic intervention. Isn’t the law of karma terrible in its inevitability? No, like a businessman, we can always add good deeds to the positive side of the ledger. Karma is actually entirely in keeping with Christ’s redemptive death, through which He assisted the whole of humanity.
