At the end of the Year of 2017 in a Facebook feed, Jason Silva open his luggage and share a taste of his
favorite books with his audience. There's no argument that books are ones most, loyal companions. We recognize him from the show National Geographic, Brain Games. Also, we had enjoyed multiple times and been awakened by his Youtube videos from Shots of Awe. His philosophical approach to his live monologues streamed in social media, had an obvious base and as we can learn he embraces the habit of reading. We should learn from his love for wisdom and to ask ourselves the small and big questions even just to make practical life decisions.
Let's begin with the title:
THE DENIAL OF DEATH
by Ernest Becker
Details: Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie -- man's refusal to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than twenty years after its writing.
A portable edition of the famous Red Book text and essay.
The Red Book, published to wide acclaim in 2009, contains the nucleus of C. G. Jung’s later works. It was here that he developed his principal theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality. As Sara Corbett wrote in the New York Times, “The creation of one of modern history’s true visionaries, The Red Book is a singular work, outside of categorization. As an inquiry into what it means to be human, it transcends the history of psychoanalysis and underscores Jung’s place among revolutionary thinkers like Marx, Orwell and, of course, Freud.” The Red Book: A Reader’s Edition features Sonu Shamdasani’s introductory essay and the full translation of Jung’s vital work in one volume.
