The Big Questions PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Big Questions free pdf Professor Lou Marinoff's first book drew on the wisdom of the great philosophers to solve our everyday problems, launching a movement that restored philosophy to what it once was: useful in all walks of life. Now, in The Big Questions, he takes the concept to the next level, applying centuries of philosophy and great literature to help answer central questions of modern existence. Urging us not to accept victimhood as the by-product of modern life, Professor Marinoff uses specific case studies from his counselling practice to show how wisdom from the great thinkers can help us define our own philosophy, and thereby reclaim our sense of well-being. He asks questions that go to the heart of the human condition: How do we know what is right? What is love? How can we cope with change? Why can't we all get along? And most centrally, how can we use the centuries of wisdom that have come before us to help us answer these questions and feel at ease in the world?
