Meditations; Marcus Aurelius

KShs1,390.00

Written in Greek, without any intention of publication, by the only Roman emperor who was also a philosopher, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe.

Ranging from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the nature of moral virtue, human rationality, divine providence, and Marcus’ own emotions.

But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, in developing his beliefs Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection of extended meditations and short aphorisms that has been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers through the centuries.

    Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow book by yuval noah harari [Paperback]

     

    Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.

    Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century – from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

    War is obsolete
    You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict

    Famine is disappearing
    You are at more risk of obesity than starvation

    Death is just a technical problem
    Equality is out – but immortality is in

    What does our future hold?

  • The groundbreaking book that redefines what it means to be smart, with a new introduction by the author
     
    “A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial.”—USA Today

    Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman’s brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny.

    Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors, which include self-awareness, self-discipline, and empathy, add up to a different way of being smart—and they aren’t fixed at birth. Although shaped by childhood experiences, emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened throughout our adulthood—with immediate benefits to our health, our relationships, and our work.

  • Mayai waziri wa Maradhi na Hadithi Nyingine ni diwani inayojumlisha hadithi fupi zinazoakisi
    hall halisi katika jamii za Afrika Mashariki. Ni hadithi ambazo zinamfanya msomaji akereke na
    kuungulika kwa kuiona dhiki, unafiki na uovu uliotamalaki katika matendo ya waja. Ni hadithi
    zinazofichua uozo na uovu wa kisiasa, kiuchumi na kijamii; hadithi zinazokemea matendo

  • In this book, Kombani takes on the issue of gambling—a craze that has recently taken over the youth as a way of making quick money.

    Of Pawns and Players starts with a punch, literally. A man in a white Mercedes accosts a mutura (African sausage) vendor based in Gardenia Estate.

    The story then goes into the underground world of sports betting, exposing the corruption that riddles government agencies, the police, politicians and social media influencers.

    It lifts the veil that hides the sham about the winners of the jackpots. It makes you question why the winners are always poor people, and are never seen after they collect their winnings.
