Genre: Philosophy

Beginning with a clear account of the historical setting for The Abolition of Man and its place within C.S. Lewis' corpus of writing, Contemporary Perspectives on C. S. Lewis' The Abolition of Man: History, Philosophy, Education and Science assesses and appraises Lewis' seminal lectures, providing a thorough analysis of the themes and subjects that are raised. Chapters focus on the major areas of thought including: philosophy, natural law, education, literature, politics, theology, science, biotechnology and the connection between the Ransom Trilogy. Drawing on Lewis' central ideas, they tackle questions such as, is The Abolition of Man hostile to scientific inquiry? Does Lewis provide an adequate rational defense of natural moral law? Do the lectures address the philosophical questions of the 21st century as Lewis sought to provide answers to philosophical questions of the 20th century? Dealing with themes across multiple areas of human inquiry, the authors bring expertise from their respective fields to bear on the core issues raised in Lewis' lectures. The result is an interdisciplinary approach that offers the first comprehensive scholarly treatment of The Abolition of Man, one of the most debated of Lewis' works.

Die beste Suchmaschine ist unser Geist Seit 2007 bietet Google seinen Mitarbeitern ein Programm für persönliches Wachstum an: »Search inside yourself«. Den Anstoß dazu gab Chade-Meng Tan, ein Google-Ingenieur, der diesen Acht-Wochen-Kurs zusammen mit renommierten Wissenschaftlern wie Jon Kabat-Zinn und Daniel Goleman entwickelte. »Search inside yourself« bietet ein Achtsamkeitstraining, um emotionale Intelligenz zu erlernen, mit dem Ziel, zufriedener, gelassener, kreativer und schließlich auch erfolgreicher zu werden. Es umfasst Übungen und Meditationen, um die Konzentration zu verbessern, die Selbstwahrnehmung zu erhöhen und nützliche mentale Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln. Bei Google ist dieses Trainingsprogramm äußerst beliebt und nachgefragt. Chade-Meng Tan macht es nun erstmals öffentlich zugänglich. Mit Leichtigkeit und Witz, und dabei stets wissenschaftlich fundiert (er ist ja Ingenieur!) zeigt er einen etwas anderen, jedoch sehr vielversprechenden Weg zu Kreativität und Lebensglück. Und wenn das bei Google funktioniert – warum nicht auch bei uns?
