Librivox: Stoicism by Stock, St. GeorgeJoin Now to Follow

This short book is part of the Philosophies Ancient and Modern series, which attempts to make Western philosophy more accessible to the general public. In this volume, George Stock provides a concise primer on Stoicism, the ancient philosophy that maintained that the universe is governed entirely by fate, and that humans can achieve happiness only by cultivating a calm acceptance of the vicissitudes of life. Among the Stoics of the Greek and Roman world were its founder, Zeno, the former slave Epictetus, and the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. George Stock discusses not only the Stoic ethics, but also less well-known aspects of Stoicism, such as its division of the branches of philosophy, its account of logic, and its natural philosophy.

Een avonturenroman vol mysteries - met zeerovers, struikrovers, schipbreuken, moord en doodslag - afgunst, wraak en rampspoed afgewisseld door humor en liefde. Ferdinand Huyck, de zoon van de hoofdschout in Amsterdam, keert na een jarenlange reis terug in Nederland. Onderweg ontmoet hij Henriette Blaek, die hij al snel niet meer uit zijn gedachten kan zetten. Nog voor hij Amsterdam kan bereiken wordt hij echter bij Naarden overvallen en beroofd door struikrovers. Een geheimzinnige man, die zich Bos noemt, redt hem zijn leven. Wie is die heer Bos, die zich, met zijn mooie dochter Amelia, verschuilt voor de politie? En hoe moet Ferdinand zich eruit redden als Henriette hem toevallig ziet in gezelschap van Amelia, en zijn vader de hoofdschout ook hoe langer hoe meer achterdochtig wordt over zijn gedrag? Hij kan de waarheid niet vertellen, omdat hij beloofd heeft om de heer Bos en zijn dochter niet te verraden… Dit is het begin van een aaneenschakeling van avonturen. Laat je niet afschrikken door de wat droge inleiding - de actie begint direct in hoofdstuk 1![samenvatting door Anna Simon] A book filled with mysterious adventures - pirates, bandits, shipwrecks and murder - jealousy, revenge and disaster mixed with humor and love.Ferdinand Huyck returns to Amsterdam after a two years’ journey. Before he reaches his destination, however, he is mugged and robbed. A mysterious man, who calls himself ‘Bos’, saves his life.

Librivox: Young Americans Abroad by Choules, J. O.Join Now to Follow

It’s 1851 and the Crystal Palace Exhibition is on in England. English American the Reverend Dr. Choules leaves Newport, Rhode Island with three teenaged students - James Robinson, George Vanderbuilt, and Weld French, who are forced to leave the fourth member of their blue-blooded quartet at home - and all four travelers promise to write to “Dear Charley”, Charles Duston, of later fame. The boys meet the Duke of Wellington, travel down the Rhine, and meet many friends along the way. While the letters are filled with some prejudice against the Catholic religion, they are a product of their time - a sometimes ignorant, but often dazzling, period of our history.
