Description


Finding inspiration in both the old eastern practices and the simplicity of everyday life, this guide explores accepted philosophical conventions, including projecting the prophet's vital experiences onto another person, such as Nietzsche did with Zarathustra and Plato with Socrates. The opening metaphor also explores a well-known tale--that of the man who, at the time of his death, decides to return to the place that he saw at birth, passing on he communicates his teachings and instructions before he leaves. Encontrando su inspiracion tanto en antiguas fuentes orientales como en la simplicidad de lo cotidiano, esta guia explora reconocidas convenciones filosoficas, incluyendo la proyeccion de las experiencias vitales del profeta a otra persona, tal como lo han hecho Nietzsche con Zaratustra o Platon con Socrates. La metafora principal tambien explora un cuento familiar--la del hombre que, a la hora de su muerte, decide regresar al sitio que lo vio nacer, comunicando sus ensenanzas y consignas antes de ir.
