Part memoir, part study, The Making of a Philosopher is the self–portrait of a deeply intelligent mind as it develops over a life on both sides of the Atlantic. The Making of a Philosopher follows Colin McGinn from his early years in England reading Descartes and Anselm, to his years in the states, first in Los Angeles, then New York. McGinn presents a contemporary academic take on the great philosophical figures of the twentieth century, including Bertrand Russell, Jean–Paul Sartre, and Noam Chomsky, alongside stories of the teachers who informed his ideas and often became friends and mentors, especially the colorful A.J. Ayer at Oxford. McGinn's prose is always elegant and probing; students of contemporary philosophy and the general reader alike will absorb every page.

Includes 25 adapted historic recipes.Prompted by a serendipitous visit to a bookstore, an epiphany leads Paula and her husband, Harvey, to southern Maine where they both fall in love with the General Ichabod Goodwin House--affectionately called Old Fields. Built at the end of the eighteenth century, the historic house still has its original nine-over-six windows, early Georgian moldings, and wide-plank painted wood floors. But it was the keeping room with its eight-foot wide, five-foot high hearth that captured their imaginations. After they sign the deed, the author begins to diligently research the house's first inhabitants, taking us back into early American history. Paula's research continues as she undertakes the challenge of furnishing the eight rooms in the original part of the house. Trying to evoke an eighteenth-century atmosphere, Paula and Harvey visit historic house museums and build a library on early American décor. Most helpful were the two inventories the author found in the collection of Goodwin family papers at Dartmouth--those of the first two Goodwins to head Old Fields, a father and son, both named Ichabod.Once the house is furnished, Paula's favorite pastime becomes imagining the lives of those first two Ichabods and their families over 250 years ago, not only their daily routines, but how their lives intertwined with larger historic events that helped shape America. Aside from having a passion for early American history, Paula's avid interest in the culinary arts leads her to research and recreate historic recipes, which are woven throughout the text. Another wonderful addition to this story is the discoveries from the archaeological dig in progress outside their front door. Based on the myriad items unearthed since 2011, many details about the chronology of the property and the house have come to light.This book is for anyone who lives in a historic house; who loves archaeology, early American history, and historic cooking; or for those armchair adventurers who will enjoy the Bennetts journey as they "cultivate a slower, less technology-based existence, cherry-picking from the past" and incorporating those pickings into their twenty-first-century lifestyle.

I was born in 1926 in a town in Silesia, Germany’s south eastern Province bordering Poland to the east and Czechoslovakia to the south. That is how it was for 2000 years until 1945 when Hitler’s war ended, and our ‘Heimat Schlesien’ no longer existed. The peace treaty demanded that Silesia be annexed to Poland meaning the eviction of our people. Six months after my 17th birthday, shortly before Christmas 1943, I was called up to military service and after my training sent to Italy, where five months later, on Sunday 4th June 1944 I was captured by the U.S. Army just outside Rome. They brought us to Norfolk Virginia from where a train journey took us to a POW camp in Oklahoma, moving soon to Fort Bliss, El Paso. In autumn 1945 fifty POWs travelled by bus to the Napa Valley to pick tomatoes, prunes, and work in the vineyards, and after New Year 1946 south to pick cotton. In early March 1946 we received black-dyed U.S. Army uniforms, boarded a troop ship in Oakland and were sent back to Europe via the Panama Canal, to arrive three weeks later in Liverpool, UK. From there we travelled by train to the north of Scotland where now over sixty years later, I continue to live. My book will tell my journey.
