A Calendar of Wisdom
Language: en
Pages: 384
Authors: Leo Tolstoy
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-05-11 - Publisher: Simon and Schuster
This is the first-ever English-language edition of the book Leo Tolstoy considered to be his most important contribution to humanity, the work of his life's last years. Widely read in prerevolutionary Russia, banned and forgotten under Communism; and recently rediscovered to great excitement, A Calendar of Wisdom is a day-by-day guide that illuminates the path of a life worth living with a brightness undimmed by time. Unjustly censored for nearly a century, it deserves to be placed with the few books in our history that will never cease teaching us the essence of what is important in this world.

Authors: Roger Walsh

Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-01-01 - Publisher: SUNY Press
Surveying spiritual and philosophical traditions, this volume revives the search for wisdom for modern times. What is wisdom and how is it cultivated? These are among the most important questions we can ask, but questions that have been routinely ignored in modern times. In the twentieth century, the search for wisdom was replaced by a search for knowledge as science and technology promised answers to life’s ills. However, along with scientific achievements came disasters, particularly the devastation of the planet through the accelerating use of modern technology. In an era drenched in data, a desire for wisdom has been reborn. Where can we go to learn about wisdom? The answer is clear: to the world’s great religions and their accompanying philosophies and psychologies. The World’s Great Wisdom makes these treasuries available. Practitioners from each of the great religions—as well as from Western philosophy and contemporary research—provide summaries of their traditions’ understandings of wisdom, the means for cultivating it, and its implications for the modern world. This book offers distillations of the world’s accumulated wisdom—ancient and modern, religious and scientific, philosophical and psychological. It is a unique resource that for the first time in history brings together our collective understanding of

Seeing the World and Knowing God
Language: en
Pages: 423
Authors: Paul S. Fiddes
Categories: Philosophy
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-07-25 - Publisher: Oxford University Press
How can we relate to the world without attempting to dominate and control it? Attempts to master the world by human reason have often ended in damaging it and other people. This book explores ideas about the relation between the human self and the world as they are presented by two groups of thinkers - writers of ancient wisdom literature in Israel and Alexandria, and philosophers of our late-modern age. Out of this conversation, the book develops a Christiantheology which combines a practical wisdom of handling the world with a wisdom of living 'in tune' with the world around, and finally with God as creator and sustainer of the world. Out of careful exegesisof ancient texts, and engagement with contemporary thinking, the book claims that participating in the life of a relational, triune God addresses problems which are presented by a dominating self.
