“From the interview guests themselves and their work to the classic quotes of ancient Greeks and influential modern philosophers, it’s a phenomenal book…. an ideal addition to the collection of anyone with a passion for deep thought and a belief that the world can be made better with intelligent, compassionate decision-making.” – The U.S. Review of Books full review >>
“An endlessly engrossing catalog of philosophical conversations.” Kirkus Reviews full review >>
This unique new book combines classic and incisive quotations with interesting interviews conducted by Jason Merchey. It aims to address big-picture topics such as values, virtues, ethics, and wisdom. The interviewees are learned, eloquent individuals who engage in questions and answers on the big questions of life. The goal is to encourage original and critical thinking about enlightenment, personal growth, progressivism, and more. The book extols the power of philosophy and of learning to make one’s life better—more interesting, more profitable, more livable, more meaningful. This impressive work covers many subtopics — from economics to politics, from philosophy to personal growth. Capitalism, liberty, character education, progressive politics, and integrity are but a few of the subtopics explored.
All books are signed by the author and are returnable if you do not find value in them.
