RISING SUN, DISTANT MOUNTAIN FOR SCHOLARS

eBook (PDF), 145 Pages
(6 Ratings)
Price: $5.00
As an intellectual exercise, RISING SUN, DISTANT MOUNTAIN represents a particular, and long neglected, way of exploring ideas and identifying new relationships between them. In much the same way the story is about a different way of making crucial decisions, the process which created the book is a different method of scholarship. Said directly, it's the use of the imagination to solve problems or answer questions. And in that sense, this book is a continuation of an historical conversation between concerned and questioning individuals who have discovered that it is the process of inquiry itself that, usually, moves knowledge forward. I hope you find something useful here.

    "creative and intelligent" The novel, by itself, is creative and moving. It carries the themes of human experience that we all love to read about. But there's more: an intellectual agenda is hidden within the characters, within the story. The novel not only tells a story, but argues for a theory; more specifically, a non-linear decision-making theory. And in case you missed all this, look to the commentary (for scholars), which is an intellectual adventure in itself. The author takes you along for the ride; his discoveries become your own. I have never read a piece of argumentation that was so personal and involved. If the author's intention was to "make ideas come alive," I think the novel and commentary are quite successful.
