Friedrich Nietzsche. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (/ˈniːtʃə/[1] or /ˈniːtʃi/;[2] German: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈvɪlhɛlm ˈniːt͡sʃə]; 15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, composer and Latin and Greek scholar.

He wrote several critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor[3] and irony. Nietzsche's key ideas include perspectivism, the will to power, the death of God, the Übermensch and eternal recurrence. One of the key tenets of his philosophy is "life-affirmation", which embraces the realities of the world in which we live over the idea of a world beyond.

Nietzsche began his career as a classical philologist—a scholar of Greek and Roman textual criticism—before turning to philosophy. In 1869, at age 24, he became the youngest-ever occupant of the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel. As his caretaker, his sister assumed the roles of curator and editor of Nietzsche's manuscripts. The Tao. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra.

True, many maps — including some of the ones on this list — don’t really tell you anything you can use in your life in a meaningful way. You’re just not going to find a practical use for knowing which countries have names that end in the letter A, or which American lake is the home to a mythical eel pig, or whether or not Coloradans hate the LA Lakers.

On the other hand, maps can transmit immensely important political and cultural information. How does culture shift over time? Which areas will be the worst off if sea levels rise? How many countries recognize Palestine as a sovereign state? I’m of the opinion that all knowledge — useful or otherwise — is worth knowing, so both types are on this list. 1. 2.

A paradox is a statement or problem that either appears to produce two entirely contradictory (yet possible) outcomes, or provides proof for something that goes against what we intuitively expect.

Paradoxes have been a central part of philosophical thinking for centuries, and are always ready to challenge our interpretation of otherwise simple situations, turning what we might think to be true on its head and presenting us with provably plausible situations that are in fact just as provably impossible. Confused? You should be. The Paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise is one of a number of theoretical discussions of movement put forward by the Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea in the 5th century BC. It begins with the great hero Achilles challenging a tortoise to a footrace. To keep things fair, he agrees to give the tortoise a head start of, say, 500m.

Imagine that a family has two children, one of whom we know to be a boy. A crocodile snatches a young boy from a riverbank. Confused? 20+ Unusual Animal Friendships That Are Absolutely Adorable. Friendship is great. Animals are great. Animal friendship? You guessed it – it's great. This list is for those wonderful animal friends who look beyond each others' (often considerable) differences and see the wonderful souls beneath the surface.

When their life isn't a struggle to survive (which often is the case in captivity), some predators can even potentially look at prey animals as friends, not as food. Most of our readers probably don't keep lions or elephants, but if you've got some adorable pics of animal friendship, we'd love to see them. And vote for your favorite animal buddies, too!

Consider the knowledge you already have — the things you really know you can do.

They are the things you have done over and over; practiced them so often that they became second nature. Every normal person knows how to walk and talk. But he could never have acquired this knowledge without practice. For the young child can’t do the things that are easy to older people without first doing them over and over and over. Most of us quit on the first or second attempt. But the man who is really going to be educated, who intends to know, is going to stay with it until it is done. Any normal child, at about the age of three or four, reaches the asking period, the time when that quickly developing brain is most eager for knowledge.

The Metaphysical Law of Human Radiation recognizes that each person is basically a powerful energy source that radiates a karma of thoughts and feelings, emotions or “vibes,” if you will.

In a philosophical way, we are both living magnets and power sources of human energy–a yin and yang in oriental thinking. This law teaches us that as we radiate out our unique energy, we attract into our lives those people and circumstances that are in tune with our unique thoughts. For years you have heard that you are what you eat. With this metaphysical law of attraction in mind, obviously you want to be very positive and optimistic in your outlook so that you will attract those developments in your life. 2. 3. 4.
