Critique of Religion and Philosophy
Critique of Religion and Philosophy
von Walter Kaufmann
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 23,62

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book on religion and Christianity, 25. November 1999
Kaufmann was one of the most profound critics of Christianity. Unlike other philosophers who brandish external criticisms like the verification principle of meaning Kaufmann concentrates on internal flaws. He points out how theologians gerrymander the Biblical text to get it to mean anything they want. They can do this because the Bible is irreduciably ambiguous coming down squarely on both sides of every question.
There is a lot of interesting material on existentialism.
The book is cleary written and is characterized by Kaufmann's bubbling wit which reminds one of Russell at his best.


Nietzsche and Jung: Sailing a Deeper Night (Contemporary Existentialism)
Nietzsche and Jung: Sailing a Deeper Night (Contemporary Existentialism)
von Patricia E Dixon
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, 25. November 1999
This is one of the best books on Nietzsche and Jung. It argues very effectively that Nietzsche was not a simple atheist but had his own religious quest. The book is very clearly written despite the difficulty of its subjects. The scholarship is luminous on every page. I've studied Nietzsche and Jung for over twenty years but found myself learning many new things. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in either Nietzsche and Jung. Despite the high price of the book it will be a splendid addition to your library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb introduction to history of the Occult, 8. August 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Black Arts (Perigee) (Taschenbuch)
This is a well-written and entertaining book that wears its very real scholarship lightly. It is a high level introduction to occult practices. A very enjoyable read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction. Interesting and Original., 24. Juli 1999
Robin Le Poidevin's book is a great introduction to some of the central problems of Philosophy of Religion. He concentrates on theism, the view that there is a benevolent creator of the World. His approach is fresh and original. Unlike other books he considers non-cognitive approaches to theism. As an added bonus, he includes an interesting chapter on death and time. While introductory, the book contains information that will interest more advanced students. This book should be a book of choice for courses on the Philosophy of Religion and for anyone interested in pursuing the question of God's existence in a thinking way.


Starship Troopers
Starship Troopers

  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 7,30

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, full of ideas!, 16. November 1997
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Starship Troopers (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed the movie and it led me to reread the book after 30 years. It is a great book filled with ideas that force one to think and yet is still enjoyable fiction, a superb story, well told. The book is much much better than the movie. It this kind of book that got me interested in science fiction in the first place.
