Introduction

What is philosophy? Translated literally from the Greek, it means “love of wisdom”. It has been around for approximately 3000 years in the West. The world’s first known,remembered philosopher is Confucious of China over 1000 years before remembered Greek philosophers.  Another simple way to understand what philosophy is to describe it: the subject that tries to answer some of the questions in life that are hardest to answer. Philosophy takes more effort to practice than it does to just think about. For adult readers, the most obvious way you have seen this is whenever you have taken a new job. The company often gives you a small flier. One paragraph of the flier gives you the philosophy. They give it to you with the Mission Statement and the Vision so that you understand core principles of the organization. The entire business functions daily – and its all in an effort to implement that little bit of philosophy.

Five Big Questions in Life

Yesterday, we looked into what is Uranian, and what is Uranian Fiction.  Today, we rejoice because instead of radioactive fallout there is a Uranian Nonfiction book release.  However, since this is Uranian Fiction that makes this event more like…

Uranian nonFiction   … If you see what I mean.

Courtesy of Wilder Publishing and Amazon.com, Five Big Questions in Life has been birthed as a little book with ‘a real publisher’ and not simply ‘an indie project’.

This book is for people who love philosophy, but may not want a degree in it.  It is for people who are curious about life, who see some of the big questions like: Is there a God?  and Are good & evil real … and things of this nature.  The book is geared for thinkers who are also doers, who are apt to be interested in practicing philosophy as actively as some people garden as a real hobby.  Designed to be practical and applied, and accessible while leaving readers to think for themselves, this is a great beginner’s book for philosophy from a Western traditional perspective.
