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.

The American dream unfolds before your eyes as you read this compelling saga of a bright, young black man who left the hills of West Virginia because he dreamed of a better life. In Wheeling, West Virginia, Bill Burrus knew that racism and discrimination would plague his life forever because of the color of his skin, so he ventured to Cleveland, Ohio, at the age of twenty-one. From there, Bill takes you on a phenomenal journey from his first day as a postal employee through his gradual rise to becoming the first African American ever elected by the membership as the president of an international labor union. It is a journey that took him all over the world and gave him power and influence reserved for the highest offices in the land. Becoming president of the American Postal Workers Union did not occur overnight; this journey with Bill takes you through his trials and tribulations, along with the post office and national union politics that got him to the presidency. Bill Burrus is honest, forthright, and even self-criticizing as he chronicles details inside the American Postal Workers Union, where you can see both accomplishments and failures. My Journey is candid. —Louis “Lou” Stokes, Congressman, Retired

The Power of Love, Living From Our Heartsis the first in a series of books designed to elevate an individual into a state of awareness. It is a transformational process of our choosing to use our conscious awareness in each moment to come from love instead of fear. The purpose of this book is to assist in remembering the truth of our magnificence. This process occurs by becoming self-realized: The self-realization that we create our reality through our thoughts, words, and actions. When our mental, emotional, and physical bodies align with unlimited love, there is no lack or self-imposed limitations. Everything is possible. The function of this book is to provide spiritual information with effective practical tools. The information demonstrates how to integrate a spiritual life style within a successful current reality. It bridges the gap between religious and non-religious individuals. This book contains seven Universal Truths and several practical tools successfully applied by many clients, family members and other professionals, along with my personal journey of self-discovery. Tremendous wisdom is gained learning from many of life's challenges, such as morbid obesity (weighing at one point 428 lbs.), financial bankruptcy, childrearing as a result of sibling death, and divorce.
