Book Details

Bad is the plan that never can be changed - Syrus


This book is intended to assist people to understand and reason on their present belief systems. Many of our opinions, beliefs and stereotypes have been derived from childhood, peer pressures, group dynamics, and religious training. Such beliefs are generally held tenaciously without ever taking the time to question such beliefs or to insure they are based on solid reasoning and thought our personal values. This book presents a consolidation of information from modern sources as well as historically relevant insights from such authors as Nietzsche, Amiel, Stirner, Epicurus, Ortega, etc. It is the intent that this information will provide the guidance and motivation needed for personal change. The author has striven to provide the basic tools of reasoning so as to be able to examine one’s life to facilitate growth and a more rewarding life style. Are your values truly your own? Is there anything to be fearful of in examining accepted opinions and beliefs? As Montaigne aptly wrote, “wind works for a man (or woman) who has no direction.” What changes, if any, are needed for you to insure that your life is currently headed in the right direction?
