Baruch Spinoza was one of the most important and controversial thinkers of the 17th century. He rejected both the mind-body dualism of Descartes and traditional religious views, which got him violently attacked for atheism while he was actually seeking to redefine God as the whole of the laws of Nature. His metaphysics are a brilliant attempt to reconcile human freedom with a belief in scientific explanation, and his Theological-Political Treatise, the first argument for democracy by a major philosopher, contributed as much as the Declaration of Independence or Thomas Paine's Common Sense to modern liberal, secular, and democratic thinking. Discover the gist of Spinoza's philosophy with this selection of 100 quotes taken among his most influential, in a practical and accessible format. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Spera.

This is a summary of Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, and George Spafford's The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win. Bill is an IT manager at Parts Unlimited. It's Tuesday morning and on his drive into the office, Bill gets a call from the CEO. The company's new IT initiative, code named Phoenix Project, is critical to the future of Parts Unlimited, but the project is massively over budget and very late. The CEO wants Bill to report directly to him and fix the mess in 90 days or else Bill's entire department will be outsourced. With the help of a prospective board member and his mysterious philosophy of The Three Ways, Bill starts to see that IT work has more in common with manufacturing plant work than he ever imagined. With the clock ticking, Bill must organize work flow, streamline interdepartmental communications, and effectively serve the other business functions at Parts Unlimited. In a fast-paced and entertaining style, three luminaries of the DevOps movement deliver a story that anyone who works in IT will recognize. Listeners will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they'll never view IT the same way again.

This is a summary of Ryan Holiday's The Obstacle is the Way. The book has become a cult classic, beloved by men and women around the world who apply its wisdom to become more successful at whatever they do. This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. While The Obstacle Is the Way is a book about philosophies in general, it is not an academic textbook on the subject. Instead, it is primarily a book to learn for yourself the basic tenets of Stoic philosophy and how to understand and apply them to daily life. "Obstacle" is the most frequently used word throughout the book, as well as a very important part of the title because it is all about how to manage the obstacles life throws at us. The central theme of the work is the belief that everyone is able to handle the obstacles that come with life even though we can't necessarily control everything about life. While we may not be in charge of the circumstances, it is possible to always be in command of ourselves and how we choose to respond to the challenges presented. Living by the principles of Stoicism means individuals deliberately control themselves in the face of obstacles which in turn strengthens willpower and confidence for difficult times in the future. This book almost never mentions the actual word "Stoicism." The author deliberately neglects to explain exactly what it is and barely mentions any philosophers of Stoicism from centuries ago - except Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Aurelius is written about more than anyone else because his thoughts written in Meditations inspired the author to write this book. Meditations provides a lot of informative ideas, but they are not quite complete. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Crooks.

Freudo-Marxism is a loose designation of several twentieth-century critical theory schools of thought that sought to synthesize the philosophy and political economy of Karl Marx with the psychoanalytic theory of Sigmund Freud. While the movement to integrate socialist and psychoanalytic theory has taken several forms, each arose during the middle of the twentieth century in the hope of answering this question: why did Fascism have mass appeal? The fact of that appeal confounded much of orthodox Marxist thought. The gist of the answer Freudo-Marxists gave to that question is that the masses have internalized their oppression as suppression. The internalization of the upper class in the minds of the lower class is the super-ego, in the same way that crowd psychology, in particular Freud, considered the leader to work as the masses' super-ego.
