Go Wild in a Book

‘The Art of Joy’ is a book that can’t be fit into a mold. Cheers!

We promise a book of surprises, with a surprise on almost every page, and sometimes several on a single page.

Chronologically, 'The Art of Joy' takes place between 1900 and 1940 in Sicily. Readers witness two world wars, the Spanish Flu pandemic, fascism’s rise to power in Italy, aristocratic families and poor, simple people, and the mobilization of a communist organization, mainly by young intellectuals outside Sicily and its infiltration into the island, devout Christian conservatism, Mafia resonances [...]

Stanisław Lem

The Solarist

100 years since the birth of Stanisław Lem – anyone who reads Solaris might think that the cobwebs are being cleaned from deep recesses of their brain.

Solaris is cataloged as science fiction, only because of our need to classify things. Disregard the classification and read the book. Dr. Aaron Hauptman has retranslated the Solaris from Polish to Hebrew, simply because he was captivated with the book’s extraordinary qualities. We asked him to write this article and he gladly agreed, again because [...]

“Full of sound and fury signifying nothing” (William Shakespeare)

The limits of human cognition, and especially mysterianism. That is, the unknown.

It is no coincidence that we have returned to Noam Chomsky’s book, What Kind of Creatures Are We? The trigger? Not only reality, but also a relatively recent article in which Idan Lando, who translated the book into Hebrew, interviews Noam Chomsky.

In the ninth decade of his life, Noam Chomsky wrote What Kind of Creatures Are We? as an attempted synthesis between various scientific theories and philosophical conceptions. The result is fascinating. From the height of interdisciplinary knowledge, Chomsky reaches the point where question marks stop us, as human beings, from seeing “beyond.” Noam Chomsky is [...]

This book should not be read – just sample a few pages and take a rest. Why? Because of the tension, the stormy reaction to reading it, and especially because of the unbelievable revelations – truth that is stranger than fiction – but which actually happened.

Digital Colonialism

“One can resist the invasion of armies; one cannot resist the invasion of ideas.” Victor Hugo

“I chose to come here of my own accord and to answer these questions about how a liberal, gay twenty-four-year-old Canadian found himself part of a British military contractor developing psychological warfare tools for the American alt-right.” Thus begins a Christopher Wylie’s fascinating book! “Fresh out of university, I had taken a job at a [...]

Thoughts To Myself

Once you purchase the book Thoughts To Myself, I am almost convinced you’ll be grateful for the recommendation. The book is, in fact, a diary, the thoughts of a wise, humble man, with wide application to our lives as human beings. This person—a Roman emperor, from the second century CE (121-180 CE)—is Marcus Aurelius. The [...]
