Download or read book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Philosophy, 2E PDF or another Format written by Jay Stevenson PhD and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2002-02-01 with total page 342 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A revised edition to a solid performing book, with expanded content on various philosophers and ideas. -- The current edition has sold over 61,000 since its release in November of 1997. -- Existing content is great, but needs to be added to in order to more effectively compete with Philosophy for Dummies, which, at 360 pages, is 100 pages over our current edition. -- By its very nature, philosophy is not subject to a great deal of change over time, and therefore can be expected to continue to perform at or above current levels. Philosophy is all about being, knowing, and acting. It poses daring questions such as what exists, what counts as knowledge, and how do we know things? And, as life becomes more and more complicated, people turn to philosophy to help themselves better understand the world around them-politics, religion, family, the environment, and more. The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Philosophy, Second Edition will continue the first edition's success in exposing beginners to the world of philosophy, its ideas, and its philosophers. It will contain expanded content on existing ideas and philosophers covered in the first edition, but it will also introduce new philosophers whose ideas were not included in the first edition, but whose contributions to the world of philosophy are perhaps now less obscure.

This book was released on 2013-10-29 with total page 145 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The vampires, werewolves, faeries, and other supernatural creatures that call Bon Temps, Louisiana home aren't universally accepted around town. Sweet-talking, bible-thumping Steve Newlin is their self-appointed nemesis. In his demented field guide, Steve has recorded all he knows about these Creatures of Satan, and that's a lot: their strengths, their weaknesses, their bylaws, and, of course, how to kill them. Sadly for Steve—but luckily for True Blood fans everywhere—his journal was stolen by Fangtasia vampires Pam and Eric, who have defaced it in a most disrespectful and snarky manner. A cunningly written ebook, and a hilarious read, The Field Guide to Vampires is packed with untold insight into our favorite TV characters, along with photos, letters, postcards, handwritten notes, and Steve's own idle doodles in a way that perfectly captures the tongue-in-cheek camp that makes True Blood the most widely watched show on HBO.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A promise made in blood cannot be undone…. Those are the words that have royally effed up my entire life. The promise my mother made to the coven before she died and the one the witches are hell bent on me fulfilling. They think they own me. Nobody, I repeat, NOBODY owns me. Not the GRIMMS who want me to be their obedient little soldier. If they knew who I really was, I’d be next on their hunting list. Certainly not the coven who has some crazy agenda to use me as a pawn against the GRIMMS. They already have the shifters on their side, and now vampires. These witches want a war. Supernaturals against humans, you know, the usual story. I don’t want any part of it. I just want my freedom. To get it, I’ll have to make a deal with the werewolf mafia so they can help me locate the only thing more powerful than both the witches and the GRIMMS—a wizard. When their help leads to a vampire attack, a dead witch, and a dead end, Javi and my friends (including the infuriatingly hot and cold Grayson) swoop in to save the day. But can I risk their lives to save my own? When they find out my real identity, will they still be on my side? I’ve already lost my parents, I can’t lose them too. Vampires and Werewolves is the second book in an upper YA Urban Fantasy/Paranormal academy series set in the Inner World universe filled with snark (sometimes swearing), lots of supernatural beings, and a low steam romance.
