Grasp the important ideas that have served as the backbone of philosophy across the ages with this extraordinary 60-lecture series. This is your opportunity to explore the enormous range of philosophical perspectives and ponder the most important and enduring of human questions - without spending your life poring over dense philosophical texts. Professor Robinson guides you through more than 2,000 years of philosophical thinking and gives you a coherent, comprehensive, and beautifully articulated introduction to the great conversation of philosophy. Every lecture contains substance that can change your view of the world and its history. You'll journey from the early philosophical ideas of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle; chart the origins of Christian philosophy and investigate the Islamic scholars who preserved and extended Greek thought during the Middle Ages; and venture through Enlightenment contributions to philosophy, from Francis Bacon to Locke, Hume, Kant, Mill, and Adam Smith. Then shift your attention to the modern era, where you see groundbreaking ideas like psychoanalysis, pragmatism, and nihilism, as well as the collision between the inherently social understanding of meaning created by Wittgenstein, the vastly different estimation of human thought developed by the code-breaking genius Alan Turing, and the subtle response to him made by the American philosopher John Searle. While the lectures cover an enormous range of key thinkers and ideas, they always focus on the most important ideas. The result is a course that gives you everything you need to finally grasp humanity's exciting philosophical history - without years of intense academic study and piles of dense reading.

Loud rock, fast cars, and Cabo. This is the life of Sammy Hagar. For almost 40 years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the band Montrose to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, Sammy's powerful and unforgettable voice has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written - songs like "I Can't Drive 55", "Right Now", and "Why Can't This Be Love". In Red, Sammy tells the outrageous story of his tear through rock 'n' roll, detailing the backstage antics and nonstop touring that have made his voice instantly recognizable. Beginning with his musical coming-of-age in the blue-collar towns of California, Sammy traces his rough and determined rise to fame, working harder than anyone else out there and writing songs about the things he loved: fast cars, loud parties, and lots of good times. But solo success was just the start, a prelude to his raucous and notorious decade as the front man for Van Halen, one of the biggest-selling rock groups in history. Filled with behind-the-scenes stories from his time with the band, Red offers the Van Halen story as Sammy saw it, holding nothing back about the worldwide stadium tours, the tensions with Eddie, the messy parties, the divided friendships, and, of course, his controversial and widely disputed exit from the band. After Van Halen, Sammy changed directions again, throwing himself headfirst into the tequila business and creating Cabo Wabo, one of the most successful tequila brands in the world. And all the while he continued to rock, touring the country with his bands the Waboritas and Chickenfoot, and eventually reuniting with Van Halen for a tour that became both a box-office smash and a personal catastrophe.

Playing the Matrix is a master class for creating the life you want to live. Tried and true, delivered and perfected over a decade while being shared live with tens of thousands of students in 132 cities, in 34 countries, upon six continents. New Thought leader and New York Times best-selling author Mike Dooley brings to bear his advanced course on living deliberately and creating consciously. The concepts Mike shares here make up his most impactful, most transformational program ever. For the first time, these complete ideas are available in audiobook form. At the heart of the Matrix lies a simple yet highly unexpected concept for creating major life change, unlike anything shared by other teachers, past or present. It clearly reveals why "manifesting" sometimes works with incredible ease, why it sometimes doesn't work at all, and why, on occasion, it works and yet in hindsight we wish it hadn't. You'll not only learn about the "Bermuda Triangle of manifesting" that too often leads to heartbreak and loss, you'll discover how to navigate around it, under full sail, with new "aha!" moments as you come to understand: How to achieve clarity in purpose and desire How to avoid contradictions and self-sabotage How to fuel your dreams with passion while not attaching to unimportant details and outcomes How to plan and take action on your dreams without messing with the "cursed hows" And so much more Playing the Matrix lays out the actual physical and metaphysical mechanics of manifestation, including your role in the equation of reality creation, so that you can deliberately orchestrate the changes you most wish to see. Once you begin working with the Universe instead of unwittingly working against it, you will truly astound yourself.

In his best-selling books and hugely popular "Notes from the Universe" daily emails, Mike Dooley teaches that the first step in changing our lives is to understand the nature of our very presence here on earth - the truth about who we are, how we got here, and the power we wield. Ultimately, Mike teaches: we are divine, eternal creators for whom all things are possible, here by choice, and we shape all of our life's experiences through the focus of our thoughts, our words, and the actions we take. Yet there are nuances, clouded by history and warped by those with agendas, that, if not understood, can sabotage our progress and keep us stuck in circumstances that seem out of our control. Mike unpacks these subtleties in depth and detail, with all his trademark irrepressible humor and joy, in this new explorer's guide to what he calls "the jungles of time and space". Life on Earth probes the mysteries and magic of our reality, from past civilizations to modern times, with an eye to the immediate future, offering an insider's view of how we humans create our experience on Earth literally from the ground up, as Mike pulls back the curtain on: What it means to say that "thoughts become things" Religions, secret societies, and what the truth really is How to make sense of natural disasters and manmade tragedies How consciousness evolves as we discover first our power, then our divinity, and then our responsibilities to live deliberately and in harmony with our fellow co-creators The ultimate goal of life on Earth (it's simpler than you think) As one of the featured teachers in The Secret, Mike is an internationally recognized expert in the science of deliberate living and conscious creation, known for taking a rational approach to even the deepest mysteries. Life on Earth is filled with insight, inspiration, and practical tools for mastering the game of life and learning how to build a better world.

From the afterlife - a new perspective on your life: "I know this may come as a shock, and you know I'm not fond of using stale one-liners, but - 'reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.' I'm as alive now as I was on the day we met, except, maybe, more so." If the dead could speak, don't you wonder what they would say to those of us they've left behind? What would they tell us to soothe our sorrow, calm our fears of what happens when we die, and fire us up to live the best possible lives now? With wisdom, humor, and, yes, joy, New York Times best-selling author Mike Dooley explores our most pressing and profound questions about the afterlife - and this life - from the fresh perspective of those who have made the transition to the next phase. Revelations they share: We were ready; you are not. There's no such thing as a devil or hell. We're sorry for any pain we may have caused. Your pets are just as crazy, brilliant, and loving here as they were there. Nothing can prepare you for the beauty of the moment you arrive. In this audio program, you'll learn that our loved ones are not lost to us; that our time on earth is both a school and an adventure; and that we can reshape our own fortunes, starting today.
