An unreligious and unusual response to Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" which largely discusses ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche and Buddhism. This book invites atheism in a direction that... More > has not been yet been widely trodden with regards to its fundamental arguments, giving it in an unexpected and refreshingly unusual challenge. The philosophical root of atheism is challenged in a manner that Dawkins breezes over that he implicitly subscribes to and does not discuss at great length, which is an old philosophical standpoint that has interested philosophers for hundreds, if not thousands of years before Dawkins. Be prepared to never look at sanctity in the same way again as Jenman makes a highly strange, unethical and entertaining romp through the current foundations of human belief systems under the fire of modern scientific excellence, without claiming that Dawkins has made any real errors or arguing for the existence of any metaphysical or supernatural reality.< Less

With lucid style and characteristic wit, Ms Fields deftly interweaves the past, the present and the future, science and spirituality, the East and the West, earth and space, and prose and poetry to produce a rich tapestry studded not only with gems of stupefying similes and mesmerising metaphors, but also drenched with the distilled wisdom of the ages infused with original inspirational insight.

A Theory of Moral Objectivity By Robert M. Ellis
Paperback: $41.44
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book was originally written as an accredited Ph.D. thesis - but one that broke all the usual rules. Rather than focusing on a small area like most theses, this is a inter-disciplinary... More > philosophical treatise that attempts to establish a new approach to the whole question of objectivity, especially in ethics.
