            The Art Of Rhetoric
              

            The Art Of Rhetoric (EPUB ebook)

            By Aristotle

            In The Art of Rhetoric, Aristotle demonstrates the purpose of rhetoric-the ability to convince people using your skill as a speaker rather than the validity or logic of your arguments-and outlines its many forms and techniques. Defining important philosophical terms like ethos, p...athos, and logos, Aristotle establishes the earliest foundations of modern understanding of rhetoric, while providing insight into its historic role in ancient Greek culture.Aristotle's work, which dates from the fourth century B.C., was written while the author lived in Athens, remains one of the most influential pillars of philosophy and has been studied for centuries by orators, public figures, and politicians alike.HarperTorch brings great works of non-fiction and the dramatic arts to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

            The Art Of War (EPUB ebook)

            By Tzu, Sun

            This ancient Chinese military text dissects thirteen aspects of warfare from an strategical and intellectual point of view. Deploring the use of excess force causing economic and civilian losses while discussing strategies that are still relevant to modern warfare, the text conti...nues to resonate with readers around the world and has been considered fundamental in military doctrine for over two thousand years.The Art of War was first translated for the Western world in the late eighteenth century. The work is attributed to the ancient writer Sun Tzu (Sun Wu) and is thought to have been originally recorded at the end of the sixth century, B.C.E. However, due to its age Chinese historians contest whether or not the version of The Art of War we have today is a revised version of the original treatise.HarperTorch brings great works of non-fiction and the dramatic arts to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

            The first complete account of the ideas and writings of a major figure in twentieth-century intellectual life Walter Kaufmann (1921-1980) was a charismatic philosopher, critic, translator, and poet who fled Nazi Germany at the age of eighteen, emigrating alone to the United State...s. He single-handedly rehabilitated Nietzsche's reputation after World War II and was enormously influential in introducing postwar American readers to existentialism. Stanley Corngold provides the first in-depth study of Kaufmann's thought, showing how he speaks to many issues that concern us today. Kaufmann was astonishingly prolific until his untimely death at age fifty-nine, writing some dozen major books, all marked by breathtaking erudition and a provocative essayistic style. Corngold introduces Kaufmann to a new generation of readers, vividly portraying the intellectual life of one of the twentieth century's most engaging and neglected thinkers.

            Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. ...Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are. Inspired by the myth of a man condemned to ceaselessly push a rock up a mountain and watch it roll back to the valley below, The Myth of Sisyphus transformed twentieth-century philosophy with its impassioned argument for the value of life in a world without religious meaning.
