“Must we not acknowledge………that in each of us there are the same principles and habits which there are in the State; and that from the individual they pass into the State?”

What does it mean to be good? What enables us to distinguish right from wrong? And how should human virtues be translated into a just society? These are questions that Plato sought to answer in this monumental work of moral and political philosophy, a book surpassed only by the Bible in its formative influence on two thousand years of Western thought.

In the course of its tautly reasoned Socratic dialogues, The Republic accomplishes nothing less than an anatomy of the soul and an exhaustive description of a State that both mirrors and enforces the soul’s ideal harmony. The resulting text is at once mystical and elegantly logical and may be read as a template for the societies in which most of us live today.

Have you ever asked, “WHO AM I?”, “WHAT IS HAPPINESS?”, or “WHAT IS ART?” Although most people ask philosophical questions, few of us really understand philosophy. The Philosophy’s Handbook is an introduction to Western philosophy through the words of its most enlightened minds. What did Nietzsche say about art? What did Leibniz decide about justice? What did Descartes think about God? Expert editors have collected excerpts from the most important writings of Western philosophers and provided insightful introductions to their lives and ideas.
The Philosopher’s Handbook includes readings from:
Religion and the Making of Nigeria By Olufemi Vaughan
In Religion and the Making of Nigeria, Olufemi Vaughan examines how Christian, Muslim, and indigenous religious structures have provided the essential social and ideological frameworks for the construction of contemporary Nigeria. Using a wealth of archival sources and extensive Africanist scholarship, Vaughan traces Nigeria’s social, religious, and political history from the early nineteenth century to the present. During the nineteenth century, the historic Sokoto Jihad in today’s northern Nigeria and the Christian missionary movement in what is now southwestern Nigeria provided the frameworks for ethnoreligious divisions in colonial society. Following Nigeria’s independence from Britain in 1960, Christian-Muslim tensions became manifest in regional and religious conflicts over the expansion of sharia, in fierce competition among political elites for state power, and in the rise of Boko Haram. These tensions are not simply conflicting over religious beliefs, ethnicity, and regionalism; they represent structural imbalances founded on the religious divisions forged under colonial rule.

In No Future Without Forgiveness, Desmond Tutu argues that true reconciliation cannot be achieved by denying the past. But neither is it easy to reconcile when a nation “looks the beast in the eye.” Rather than repeat platitudes about forgiveness, he presents a bold spirituality that recognizes the horrors people can inflict upon one another, and yet retains a sense of idealism about reconciliation. With a clarity of pitch born out of decades of experiences, Desmond Tutu shows readers how to move forward with honesty and compassion to build a newer and more humane world.

    “In its sober depiction and searing indictment of evil and in its never-maudlin advocacy of love, this is a masterpiece.”
                                            -KIRKUS REVIEWS

DESMOND TUTU: recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, retired as Archbishop of Capetown, South Africa, in 1996. He is active as a lecturer throughout the world and recently was a visiting professor at Emory University in Atlanta.

    “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa has out the spotlight on all of us……..In its hearings Desmond Tutu has conveyed our common pain and sorrow, our hope and confidence in the future.”

In 1974, when the first edition of this book was published, Dr. Ogbu Kalu (1942-2009) was a young, devout Presbyterian minister and scholar who believed that the unity of the Church of Nigeria was not only possible but necessary. Indeed, an ecumenical movement had seen a similar need for unity and predicted that this unity would occur in December of 1965. The vision was to create not multiple churches of many denominations, but rather one complete, unified church composed of Anglicans, Methodists, and Presbyterians. However, this was not to be, due to inner negotiations breaking down. Dr. Kalu thus took it upon himself to write a study about the impulses and arguments toward unity and why unity is the true intention of God. This second edition’s publication honors Dr. Kalu’s call to unity, and it allows the modern reader to ponder what unity means in the twenty-first century and the current Church of Nigeria.

The People vs Muhammad - Psychological Analysis By J.K Sheindlin
Is Islam a "religion of peace"? Was Muhammad the true and final prophet of God? Is the Quran the fulfilment of the Bible, and legitimately continuing the traditions of the Judeo-Christian scriptures?

Perhaps one of the most audacious, shocking, unthinkable and highly controversial ideas to ever be conceived, The People vs Muhammad places the founding father of Islam on trial for crimes against humanity, and to challenge his self-proclaimed authority. With the growing threat of home-grown Muslim jihadist terrorist attacks and the ominous cataclysm of a global holy war, there's no doubt Islam has become a burdensome issue which has our own western governments perplexed.

This book series intends to investigate the true ideology of Islam, to ascertain with reason and logic the legitimacy of Muhammad's claim and core teachings of his cult. Throughout this series, author J.K Sheindlin carefully analyses the Quran and the Islamic texts legalistically to expose the shocking truth pertaining to Muhammad's advocation for:
Pedophilia, honor killings, sex slavery, prostitution, racism, extortion, murder, psychological
indoctrination, intellectual terrorism, censorship, grand larceny, racketeering, domestic violence, gender inequality, and much more!

In this powerful series, the first installment Psychological analysis delves deep into Muhammad's past and uncovers disturbing facts which undoubtedly prove to be the origins of his multiple psychopathological disorders. Using entirely the Islamic sources in reference to contemporary psychiatric-medical archives, J.K Sheindlin details Muhammad's extensive catalogue of mental illnesses which include:
Psychopathy, Gynophobia, Napoleon Complex, Schizophrenia, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Messiah-God Complex, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Athazagorophobia, Oedipus Complex,
Sex-addiction, Pedophilia, and Necrophilia.

Furthermore, the author also hypothesizes a convincing argument based on medical science, which
debunks Muhammad's first revelation. These external factors being:
Volcanic gas inhalation, sensory deprivation, starvation, dehydration, brain damage and Syphilis.

Written to provoke a rational response from both Muslim and western readers, the verdict is ultimately decided by the public to determine if Muhammad's claim to prophethood is legitimate.
