Detail - The idea that certain objects can be cursed or even possessed by evil spirits is as old as mankind. In this book we will look at a few of the world's most dangerously cursed items such as Robert the Doll and Annabelle, The Basano vase is an item that has killed almost everyone who purchased it. Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen tomb is believed to have been responsible for a number of deaths. The Ark of the Covenant is regarded as an intrinsically holy object in the Jewish faith and a physical manifestation of the presence of God among his people is also perhaps the most dangerous item in existence to those not of this faith. What you have seen in movies like Raiders of the lost Ark only hint at the power that this item contains. The Thomas Busby's Chair also called the Dead Man's Chair is an oak chair which is said to be cursed by a murderer Thomas Busby. People who sit in this chair die, as many as 63 deaths. So many have died that the it can only be displayed to the public by suspending it from wires above the museum floor so that no one will be able to sit in it. In this book we will also explore how to identify and dispose of cursed items safely.

Detail - A Layperson's Guide to Non-Thing Theory: This book presents a radical breakthrough in the understanding of the true nature of negative phenomena which makes all concepts of actual evil obsolete. It also validates the 'all-positives' observations of states of ecstasy while simultaneously reconciling them with the common-sense observations of negatives. This explanation holds true regardless of whether the ecstasy is spontaneous, religious, produced by fasting and meditation or induced by drugs like MDMA or LSD and remains logically consistent even after the ecstatic state has passed.

Detail - The code of conduct for a leading tech company famously says "Don't Be Evil." But what exactly is evil? Is it just badness by another name--the shadow side of good? Or is it something more substantive--a malevolent force or power at work in the universe? These are some of the ontological questions that philosophers have grappled with for centuries. But evil also raises perplexing epistemic and psychological questions. Can we really know evil? Does a victim know evil differently than a perpetrator or witness? What motivates evil-doers? Satan's rebellion, Iago's machinations, and Stalin's genocides may be hard to understand in terms of ordinary reasons, intentions, beliefs, and desires. But what about the more "banal" evils performed by technocrats in a collective: how do we make sense of Adolf Eichmann's self-conception as just an effective bureaucrat deserving of a promotion? Evil: A History collects thirteen essays that tell the story of evil in western thought, starting with its origins in ancient Hebrew wisdom literature and classical Greek drama all the way to Darwinism and Holocaust theory. Thirteen interspersed reflections contextualize philosophical developments by looking at evil through the eyes of animals, poets, mystics, witches, librettists, film directors, and even a tech product manager. Evil: A History will enlighten readers about one of the most alluring and difficult topics in philosophy and intellectual life, and will challenge their assumptions about the very nature of evil.

Economics of Good and Evil : The Quest for Economic Meaning from Gilgamesh to Wall Street

Detail - Tomas Sedlacek has shaken the study of economics as few ever have. Named one of the "Young Guns" and one of the "five hot minds in economics" by the Yale Economic Review, he serves on the National Economic Council in Prague, where his provocative writing has achieved bestseller status. How has he done it? By arguing a simple, almost heretical proposition: economics is ultimately about good and evil. In The Economics of Good and Evil, Sedlacek radically rethinks his field, challenging our assumptions about the world. Economics is touted as a science, a value-free mathematical inquiry, he writes, but it's actually a cultural phenomenon, a product of our civilization. It began within philosophy--Adam Smith himself not only wrote The Wealth of Nations, but also The Theory of Moral Sentiments--and economics, as Sedlacek shows, is woven out of history, myth, religion, and ethics. "Even the most sophisticated mathematical model," Sedlacek writes, "is, de facto, a story, a parable, our effort to (rationally) grasp the world around us." Economics not only describes the world, but establishes normative standards, identifying ideal conditions. Science, he claims, is a system of beliefs to which we are committed. To grasp the beliefs underlying economics, he breaks out of the field's confines with a tour de force exploration of economic thinking, broadly defined, over the millennia. He ranges from the epic of Gilgamesh and the Old Testament to the emergence of Christianity, from Descartes and Adam Smith to the consumerism in Fight Club. Throughout, he asks searching meta-economic questions: What is the meaning and the point of economics? Can we do ethically all that we can do technically? Does it pay to be good? Placing the wisdom of philosophers and poets over strict mathematical models of human behavior, Sedlacek's groundbreaking work promises to change the way we calculate economic value.
