Little Atoms takes its final look at The Art of Living
series of books,
from Acumen Publishing.
The Art of Living - We live in a world where people are searching for new
insights and sources of meaning. Religion often seems questionable; work
and the consumer treadmill unbalanced; and self-help worthy but
simplistic. Philosophy is the great untapped resource of our generation.
From Plato to Russell philosophers have engaged wide audiences on matters
of life and death. The Art of Living series aims to invigorate philosophy
and open up the subjects riches to a wider public once again. Taking its
lead from the concerns of the ancient Greek philosophers, the series asks
the question "how should we live?" Authors draw on their own personal
reflections to write philosophy that seeks to enrich, stimulate and
challenge the reader's thoughts about their own life.
