Summary

In May 1908 William James, a gifted and popular lecturer, delivered a series of eight Hibbert Lectures at Manchester College, Oxford, on “The Present Situation in Philosophy.” These were published in 1909 as "A Pluralistic Universe."

In “A Pluralistic Universe” James captures a new philosophic vision, at once intimate and realistic. He shares with his readers a view of the universe that is fresh, active, and novel. He defends the mystical and anti-pragmatic view that concepts distort rather than reveal reality. 
The message conveyed is as relevant today as it was in his time.

    Hello, grown-ups of all ages! In this book, you’ll find bite-sized bursts of advice and quirky illustrations celebrating your status as an adult, no matter how long you’ve officially been one.

    From an Emmy Award–winning comedy writer: “An absolute must for every parent who needs to laugh so they don’t cry.” —Bunmi Laditan, author of Confessions of a Domestic Failure 
     
    From the comedian behind the popular parenting blog The Ugly Volvo comes a refreshing spin on the baby milestone book. Instead of a place to lovingly capture the first time baby sleeps through the night, this book commemorates baby’s first poop explosion; first time baby says a word you didn’t want her to say; and first time you forget the details of childbirth enough to consider having a second kid. 
     
    Accompanied by distinctive illustrations, these one hundred rarely documented but all-too-realistic milestones provide comfort, solidarity, and comic relief for exhausted and terrified new parents.

    When dermatologist Peter Wisch learned how to channel higher wisdom, he wondered whether that ability would be able to help his patients as well. Both he and many of his patients had longed to find answers to mystifying questions regarding more profound reasons for illness. Remarkably, what he found proved to be both surprising and revelatory. The knowledge he discovered was quite different, albeit not invalidating, than what he had been taught in medical school. Beneath all the biological, chemical, physiological, and other physical causes for disease exist emotional, mental, and spiritual ones. The messages he received not only resonated with patients, but its advice when passed along and heeded, seemed to help heal their conditions. What began as innocent curiosity revolutionized his way of understanding and treating illness that does not discredit the field of medicine, but instead holds great potential to enhance it. In Revelations on Healing, Dr. Wisch describes how you too can take control of your own health by applying fundamental metaphysical tenets to awaken the healer within you and manifest your own well-being.
