Can we have ethics without God? Is there such a thing as "atheist spirituality"? According to Comte-Sponville, we have allowed the concept of spirituality to become intertwined with religion and thus have lost touch with the nature of a true spiritual existence. In order to change this, however, we need not reject the ancient traditions and values that are part of our heritage; rather, we must rethink our relationship to these values and ask ourselves whether their significance comes from the existence of a higher power or simply from the human need to connect to one another and the universe.
Comte-Sponville offers rigorous, reasoned arguments that take both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions into account, and he uses his personal experience as a child raised in the Catholic church as an illuminating example of the loss of faith in God but not spirituality. Through his clear, concise, and often humorous prose, he offers a convincing treatise on a new form of spiritual life.

Une adoration : roman by Nancy Huston Book 30 editions published between and in 3 languages and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide In a legal hearing concerning the death of a man named Cosmo, many strange witnesses, including dead people and inanimate objects, give testimonies. Cosmo is revealed to be very empathetic, so gifted at mirroring others that he loses sight of himself.
As he lies in the dark of his hospital bed, voices from Milo's past and present--real and imagined--swirl about his head, each taking on the rhythm of his favorite Brazilian fight-dance, the capoiera. Seated next to him, Milo's partner, bumptious director Paul Schwartz, coaxes Milo through his life story, from the abuse he suffered as a foster child to his lost heritage--his beloved grandfather's priceless library. As Milo narrates, his story becomes the pair's final screenplay, the movie that will be their masterpiece.
With Milo's imagination in full flight, several generations of Noirlac ancestors--voices in French and English, German and Dutch, Cree and Gaelic--come to life. Shelves: canadian-literature , french-lit. Huston rate royalement son coup. C'est vrai qu'il y a des hommes blancs qui trompe leurs femmes blanches avec des femmes autochtones mais Mme. Si les Canadiens n'ont aucune tolerance pour des relations illicites entre blancs et autochtones, ils acceptant assez bien des marriages entre les deux. J'ai pas mal d'amis et de parents qui sont dans cette categorie. En somme, je trouve ce roman tres precheur.
En meme temps, il ne represente pas de tout ce qui se fait dans la vie de tous les jours la au Canada ou les blancs et les autochtons se cotoient. Une relecture, cette fois-ci. J'aime de plus en plus cette auteure, ses structures de phrase et son style. This story runs through four generations of the Sterling family, told by narrator Paula, as a reimagining of her grandfather Paddon's life. Apart from all my appreciation for the structure of the novel, it tells an absorbing story of a family, of the problems handed down one to another. These include adultery, physical abuse, emotional coldness, and the inability to achieve worldly success.
Even so, there are moments of happiness and peace in life. I admired how Huston was able to take the life This story runs through four generations of the Sterling family, told by narrator Paula, as a reimagining of her grandfather Paddon's life. I admired how Huston was able to take the life of such a man and make it so sympathetic and so interesting. The writing itself was a big attraction as well; it is accomplished and poetic. Full review here. The narrating in the book seems odd to me. The book is mainly telling his life to him along with her own reflections.
For instance I read a lot of "remember grandpa your were child and your dad did so and so to you I couldn't stop protesting on those moments that how do you know how he felt at the time. Narrating aside, the book was a good read for me, taking me to the journey of firs The narrating in the book seems odd to me.
Narrating aside, the book was a good read for me, taking me to the journey of first immigrants to Canada , their hardships, life, love, war and The romantic relationship of grandfather with Miranda was interesting; his intellectual abilities that isolated him and blurred his emotional problems were well written and captivating. Mar 03, Barbara Sibbald rated it liked it. The premise of this book is compelling: a young woman tries to trace her recently deceased grandfather's life. He's not a likeable man though, our Paddon; he's prone to anger and beating his kids up.
He refuses to accept responsibility for his failures, or to enjoy what life offers. UNTIL he meets the woman he is destined to love. It sounds like a Harlequin when I write it like this, but truth be told, that bit, the love story, is well done. His mistress is First Nations and the stories that she The premise of this book is compelling: a young woman tries to trace her recently deceased grandfather's life. His mistress is First Nations and the stories that she tells are the most interesting part of the book. They have a real and visceral quality. Apr 03, Mike rated it liked it.
A good look at a family saga following five generations. Also, an interesting view of early 20th century life in Western Canada. Still, there was something missing in this story for me. The fact that I didn't feel the frustration of Paddon as it was supposed to feel is probably the big drawback for me. He did not come through as a character that deserved the homage of a granddaughter, not because he was unlikable, but rather because he was slightly incomplete. Free Repair Manual 94 Suzuki Sidekick.
