This book was released on 2020-12-10 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why did the Lebanese state, the most open and democratic political system in the Middle East, break down between 1967 and 1976? In this major contribution to the debate, Fazel el-Khazen rejects the standard explanations of the Lebanese Civil War and argues instead that the causes were due to the official state ideology, which recognized diversity, dissent and a highly pluralistic population, and then specific external factors: pressures from the Arab-Israeli Conflict, inter-Arab rivalries, and the Palestine Liberation Organization's close connection to Lebanese politics. Using an historical analysis, el-Khazen sheds light on the political situation of the country in the lead up to the conflict and the major role Lebanon's neighbours had in the events. The detailed and comprehensive account uses interviews with the key protagonists in the civil war and analysis of unpublished sources to reveal how and why the breakdown took place.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Breakdown By: Anthony Ciotti III The Breakdown gives a clear and concise explanation of the various political, economic, linguistic, and psychological systems which govern our everyday lives. It speaks openly and honestly about the lies and misrepresentations that everybody is indoctrinated to since birth and that are taught in schools. It also covers how many prestigious academics speak about these problems, yet the information is not disseminated to the general populace in an effective manner, for various reasons. The Breakdown starts at the most base level with language: how it is misused by the majority and clears up what every language is at its most base level. The book then moves up to the concepts of Freedom, governance, economics, and goes into the philosophical outlook of what groups of people strive to be. If a person knows the mechanics of a car, a repair mechanic cannot con them into unnecessary repairs. Once you know the mechanics of the various systems that control our lives, another human won’t be able to con you into supporting lies and snake oil.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Combines historical research and philosophical analysis to cast light on why and how Cartesianism failed as a complete metaphysical system. Far more radical in its conclusions than his 1966 study The Downfall of Cartesianism (a slightly revised version of which forms the main body of the current work), Watson argues that Descartes's ontology is incoherent and vacuous, his epistemology deceptive, and his theology unorthodox--indeed, that Descartes knows nothing.

This book was released on 2000-08-15 with total page 508 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: National Book Award Finalist: “This man’s ideas may be the most influential, not to say controversial, of the second half of the twentieth century.”—Columbus Dispatch At the heart of this classic, seminal book is Julian Jaynes's still-controversial thesis that human consciousness did not begin far back in animal evolution but instead is a learned process that came about only three thousand years ago and is still developing. The implications of this revolutionary scientific paradigm extend into virtually every aspect of our psychology, our history and culture, our religion—and indeed our future. “Don’t be put off by the academic title of Julian Jaynes’s The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. Its prose is always lucid and often lyrical…he unfolds his case with the utmost intellectual rigor.”—The New York Times “When Julian Jaynes . . . speculates that until late in the twentieth millennium BC men had no consciousness but were automatically obeying the voices of the gods, we are astounded but compelled to follow this remarkable thesis.”—John Updike, The New Yorker “He is as startling as Freud was in The Interpretation of Dreams, and Jaynes is equally as adept at forcing a new view of known human behavior.”—American Journal of Psychiatry
