Starting from the premise that philosophers' deaths have been as interesting as their lives, Simon Critchley looks at the strange circumstances in which some philosophers have died and then confronts the big themes - in this case, what 'a good death' means and how to live with the knowledge of death. The book consists of short entries on various philosophers, cataloguing the manner of their demises and linking this to their central ideas, from the Pre-Socratics to Rousseau, Kant and Nietzsche among many others. The book concludes with Critchley's thoughts on the ideal of the philosophical death as a way of denouncing contemporary delusions and sophistries, what Francis Bacon saw as the Idols of the Tribe, the Den, the Market-Place and the Theatre (incidentally, Bacon died in a particularly cold winter in London in 1626 from a cold contracted after trying to stuff a chicken with snow as an experiment in refrigeration).

Questions such as 'Is being dead like sleeping?', 'Why do people have to die?' and 'Where do dead people go?' are answered simply, truthfully and clearly to help adults explain to children what happens when someone dies. Prompts encourage children to explore the concepts by talking about, drawing or painting what they think or feel about the questions and answers. Suitable for children aged 4+, this is an ideal book for parents and carers to read with their children, as well as teachers, therapists and counsellors working with young children.

How do you know what you feel? Why are some bad habits so hard to shake? Why do people do what they are told? Are we players or puppets? What is 'society'? These are some of the questions that new undergraduate student Mila begins to ask as she sets out on her journey to find out what sociology is and why it matters. This is a novel of ideas, a textbook in which we follow Mila and her friends as they grapple with sociological ideas and problems. It offers refreshingly clear explanations of the most important aspects of sociology and exposes students to social theory and how it relates to our everyday experiences. Through Mila's thoughts and actions, and the events in her social and family life, students are encouraged to engage critically and personally with sociological ideas, and in the process learn how to interpret, use and reshape them. Bringing the subject to life with humour, storytelling and doodles, this revised second edition of Dead White Men and Other Important People remains the ideal introduction to sociological thinking for students at all levels.

Harassed by a tic-tac bureaucracy that makes the Soviet Union look free and easy, these bases are filled with highly neurotic individuals who use their free time playing mind games with one another.
