24 Holt, Jim WHY DOES THE WORLD EXIST?: AN EXISTENTIAL DETECTIVE STORY
Liveright 2013 0871403595 / 9780871403599 Paperback Very Good 
"I can imagine few more enjoyable ways of thinking than to read this book." â??Sarah Bakewell, New York TimesBook Review, front-page review Tackling th e "darkest question in all of philosophy" with "raffish erudition" (Dwight Garner, New York Times), author Jim Holt explores the greatest metaphysical mystery of all: why is there something rather than nothing? This runaway b estseller, which has captured the imagination of critics and the public ali ke, traces our latest efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. Holt ad opts the role of cosmological detective, traveling the globe to interview a host of celebrated scientists, philosophers, and writers, "testing the con tentions of one against the theories of the other" (Jeremy Bernstein, Wall Street Journal). As he interrogates his list of ontological culprits, the b rilliant yet slyly humorous Holt contends that we might have been too narro w in limiting our suspects to God versus the Big Bang. This "deft and consu ming" (David Ulin, Los Angeles Times) narrative humanizes the profound ques tions of meaning and existence it confronts.

ASSHOLES: A THEORY, James, Aaron
26 James, Aaron ASSHOLES: A THEORY
Anchor 2014 0804171351 / 9780804171359 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. What does it mean for someone to be an asshole? The answer is not obvious, despite the fact that we are often stuck dealing with people for whom there is no better name. We try to avoid them, but assholes are everywhere--at w ork, at home, on the road, in the public sphere--and we struggle to compreh end why exactly someone should be acting like that. Asshole management begins with asshole understanding. Finally giving us the concepts to discern why assholes disturb us so, philosopher Aaron James presents a provocative theory of the asshole to explain why such people exist, especially in an age of raging narcissism and unbridled capitalism. We get a better sense of when the asshole is best resisted and best ignored--a better sense of what is, and what is not, worth fighting for.

VIRTUES OF AUTHENTICITY, Nehamas, Alexander
36 Nehamas, Alexander VIRTUES OF AUTHENTICITY
Princeton University Press 1998 0691001782 / 9780691001784 Paperback Very Good++ 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: The eminent philosopher and classical scholar Alexander Nehamas presents he re a collection of his most important essays on Plato and Socrates. The pap ers are unified in theme by the idea that Plato's central philosophical con cern in metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics was to distinguish the authenti c from the fake, the original from its imitations. In approach, the collect ion displays Nehamas's characteristic combination of analytical rigor and s ensitivity to the literary form and dramatic effect of Plato's work. Togeth er, the papers represent Nehamas's distinct and original contributions to s cholarship on Plato and Socrates and serve as a comprehensive introduction to the thought of these two philosophers. In the book's opening section, Nehamas discusses Plato's representation of Socrates as a model of authentic human goodness, showing that Plato's Socrates is a more skeptical, troubling, and individualistic thinker than is usually supposed. The papers in the second section form a sustained defense of a new and important understanding of Plato's theory of the forms and the evolution of that theory in Plato's later writings. The third section examines Plato's contention that popular entertainment--by which he meant Greek epic and tragic poetry--misleads its audience into a debased life, an argument Nehamas relates to modern anxieties about television and other forms of popular culture. The collection also includes a discussion of Plato's use of the dialogue form in his representation of Socrates and carefully examines the combination of literary and philo

38 Palmer, Donald D. SARTRE FOR BEGINNERS
For Beginners 2007 1934389153 / 9781934389157 Paperback As New 
Sartre For Beginners is an accessible yet sophisticated introduction to the life and works of the famous French philosopher, Jean Paul Sartre. Sartre was a member of the French underground during WWII, a novelist, a playwrigh t, and a major influence in French political and intellectual life. The book opens with a biographical section, introducing the significant eve nts in the life of the man who coined the term "existentialism." Then it examines Sartre's early philosophical works. Ideas from Sartre's ot her fictional and dramatic works are discussed, but the greatest part is th e presentation of the main concepts from Sartre's Being and Nothingness (19 43). These include the topics of consciousness, freedom, responsibility, ab surdity, "bad faith," authenticity, and the hellish confrontation with othe r people. Finally, the book deals with Sartre's modification of his early existential ism to compliment his conversion to a kind of "existential" Marxism. Sartre For Beginners summarizes the work of the most renown philosopher of the 20th Century.
