Matson, Wallace
These incisive, witty, and completely accessible essays on a wide range of topics by historian of philosophy Wallace Matson admirably demonstrate that philosophy can still be based on careful reasoning and presented with clarity of expression. Against fashionable contemporary views, Matson asserts that philosophy is "the most important subject in the college curriculum," because it is the investigation into what rationality is. Getting the answer wrong to the question "What does it mean to be reasonable?" is the most catastrophic of errors. The motivation for most of the essays in this collection is his perception that this error is being widely committed and that received opinion on many topics is dead wrong. Accordingly, he takes issue with the following beliefs: bodily resurrection is possible; zombies are logically possible (as David Chalmers claims); John Rawls wrote a book on justice; religion is an aid to morality; Zeno and Parmenides tried to prove that nothing really moves; the actual world is only one out of an infinity of possible worlds; and much more. Also included are two essays on Matson's distinctions between high and low beliefs, four essays on Spinoza, and, in conclusion, 'The Study of Philosophy as a Prophylactic against Bullshit'.

Bryan, Liz
Liz Bryan explores and celebrates the amazing landscapes of British Columbia and traces the early history of this, Canada's western-most province. Through 18 picturesque country journeys, mostly in the Interior between the Rockies and the Coast Mountains, she takes readers through some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery in the country. British Columbia has everything: forests, rivers, lakes, grasslands, alpine peaks, sagebrush plateaus, desert valleys and badlands.This diversity can be explained in part by the province's remarkable geological history: it is not one land, but several, formed over time by unstoppable tectonic forces and modified by volcanic activity and glacial ice. In this title, much of the human history of the province, which closely follows the patterns of its geology, can be discovered along the network of roads stitching the province together. In this book, traces of the Native peoples' ancestral presence are found, along with those of the fur traders, explorers, gold miners, ranchers and homesteaders who settled here. This book offers an invitation to celebrate British Columbus' scenic heartland. Driving instructions and maps complement the text, and Bryan's colour photographs demonstrate the spectacular beauty of British Columbia. 190pp.
