Ideas about the soul and the afterlife, of sin and God's purpose have shaped human thinking for thousands of years. Religious rituals remain embedded in the major events of our lives. In this thought-provoking series, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins asks what happens if we leave religion behind. He explores what reason and science might offer to inspire and guide our lives in religion's place. Can science bring understanding in the face of death, help us tell right from wrong, or reveal the meaning of life?

The Arts and the Definition of the Human: Toward a Philosophical Anthropology (repost)

The Arts and the Definition of the Human: Toward a Philosophical Anthropology by Joseph Margolis
English | Sep 10, 2008 | ISBN: 0804759545 | 200 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

The Arts and the Definition of the Human introduces a novel theory that our selves—our thoughts, perceptions, creativity, and other qualities that make us human—are determined by our place in history, and more particularly by our culture and language. Margolis rejects the idea that any concepts or truths remain fixed and objective through the flow of history and reveals that this theory of the human being (or "philosophical anthropology") as culturally determined and changing is necessary to make sense of art.

The Templars: The History and the Myth: From Solomon's Temple to the Freemasons (Repost)

Michael Haag "The Templars: The History and the Myth: From Solomon's Temple to the Freemasons"
Harper Paperbacks | English | September 8, 2009 | ISBN: 0061775932 | 384 pages | azw, epub, lrf, mobi | 3,8 mb

This book gives a very good narration about the history of The Crusades fron the First Crusade to the 13th. The explanation about the crusades, from the causes, the principal actors etc is very comprehensive but written in an easy to understand style. On the other hand, the history about The Templars is also written comprehensively, but only fills about 30 - 40 % of the book's content, so most of this book's contents is more about the history of The Crusades.
