What makes a human being like one thing, one person and dislike others? Could our body cells and our souls come with all this information? Could souls look for each other, over and over, life after life? The story of Luke and Kate can be told only on this life, but if you have an open mind, you can consider the possibility that they are meeting again. Their love is real and strong and will be tested beyond their imagination. Kate thought she had finally found true love with Luke, but an accident turns her world upside down, and again she needs to conquer what she thought was already hers. Luke was every woman's dream: handsome, rich, and a good person. But when he thinks he has it all, he loses everything. Another life and lesson show them that life is just a journey, and this life is just a stop on the way to a final destiny.

Talks on the Stories of Chuang Tzu. OSHO revitalises the 300-year-old Taoist message of self-realization through the stories of the Chinese mystic, Chuang Tzu. He speaks about the state of egolessness, "the empty boat"; spontaneity, dreams and wholeness; living life choicelessly and meeting death with the same equanimity . Available in a beautiful new edition, this series overflows with the wisdom of one who has realized the state of egolessness himself.

In Almost Over, F. M. Kamm presents a wide-ranging philosophical discussion of the moral, legal, and medical issues related to aging, dying, and death. She begins by considering different views about whether and why death is bad for the person who dies and what these views imply about the death of humanity. She then considers whether there are conditions under which it might make sense to deliberately bring a person's death about, given the processes of aging and dying that precede it. In the opinion of some it is not only serious illness but ordinary aging that may give rise to this question and Kamm pays particular attention to the various ways in which aging could affect the distribution of "goods" and "bads" in a particular life. Specifically, she considers how the limitations and changes due to aging and the dying process affect meaning in one's life, and whether the absence of meaning affects the reasonableness of not resisting or even seeking one's death. Kamm explores these questions not only as they relate to individuals' decisions but also as they relate to public policy and state action. Recently attempts have been made to help the general public think about end-of-life issues by devising questionnaires and conversation guides; Kamm evaluates some of these resources and articulates the moral implications of the assumptions they make about aging, dying, and value. She also takes up the issue of physician-assisted suicide as a way of ending one's life, considering its moral permissibility and whether or not it ought to be legalized as a matter of public policy. In doing so, she examines arguments from discussions about capital punishment concerning state action and also methods of balancing costs and benefits (including cost effectiveness analysis). In her analysis, Kamm engages with the views of such prominent philosophers, medical doctors, and legal theorists as Shelly Kagan, Susan Wolf, Atul Gawande, Ezekiel Emanual, and Neil Gorsuch, among others, shedding new light on conversations about the moral complexities and consequences of aging, dying, and death.

Here is a book of 88 poems, written in about last eight months by the poet on various themes. These include his varied feelings, ideas, moods, realization and so on. Again, some of the poems read like a series of soliloquy of his mind. The topics are spread over arenas like economic, social, cultural, and emotional spheres. Issues from the national and international fields sometimes haunt him though, he rather consciously avoid speaking on political agenda. His political belief is rather unpronounced in his poems, although he has definitely some areas of conviction. His religious feelings denote that he has a pantheistic turn of mind and his humanistic faith is sometimes forcefully expressed. Certain poems show a similarity with Tagore's belief in the God of Life. The form as well as language of the poems is quite simple; their contents are expressed in a matter-of-fact way, with little scope of ambiguity. It seems the poet does not believe much in experimentation. Like his first book from the Partridge, it is expected that this present volume will also be critically appreciated by the readers of poetry in the international literary arena.

Canonical but controversial works of radical modernism, John Dos Passos' novels continue to intrigue readers and challenge literary critics with their unique styles and provocative messages. This book offers an insightful and refreshing perspective on his fictional world, exploring the historical vision and utopian aspirations of his early novels in light of their dialectical politics in narrating modern American society. History and Utopian Disillusion convincingly shows that Dos Passos' epic-scale project is a radical hymn of faith dialectically inspiring the utopian resolution of American history by presenting entropic despair and disillusionment.

Pluralism and Liberal Politics

In this book, Robert Talisse critically examines the moral and political implications of pluralism, the view that our best moral thinking is indeterminate and that moral conflict is an inescapable feature of the human condition. Through a careful engagement with the work of William James, Isaiah Berlin, John Rawls, and their contemporary followers, Talisse distinguishes two broad types of moral pluralism: metaphysical and epistemic. After arguing that metaphysical pluralism does not offer a compelling account of value and thus cannot ground a viable conception of liberal politics, Talisse proposes and defends a distinctive variety of epistemic pluralism. According to this view, certain value conflicts are at present undecidable rather than intrinsic. Consequently, epistemic pluralism countenances the possibility that further argumentation, enhanced reflection, or the acquisition of more information could yield rational resolutions to the kinds of value conflicts that metaphysical pluralists deem irresolvable as such. Talisse’s epistemic pluralism hence prescribes a politics in which deep value conflicts are to be addressed by ongoing argumentation and free engagement among citizens; the epistemic pluralist thus sees liberal democracy is the proper political response to ongoing moral disagreement.
