Existential Aspirations affirms that active, continuous learning is what makes life worthwhile. Thoughtful living can create meaning anywhere you look. In this collection of provocative essays, author Charles Hayes gives close examination to subjects that we often take for granted. He explores the value of thinking for yourself, taking responsibility as a citizen in a democracy, and overcoming bias to pursue the better argument. Topics range from memories, movies, gullibility, and self-help culture to honor, war, capitalism, and justice; from rethinking the pursuit of happiness to coming to terms with our own mortality. Known for his astute wisdom, Hayes includes a treasure of aphorisms as a bonus.

A existential continuation of the philosophical thought of Albert Camus in his "Myth of Sisyphus" from the perspective of acceptance of nihilism as the only sound and valid morality available in Technological Society. Whereas the work of Camus and the work of most existential thought tries to avoid nihilism, this author accepts it and argues Acceptance of it as a means for the individual soul to find value in Technological Society. This work contains several essays dealing with meaning in life existentially and conceptually and pragmatically for solving conceptual problems in Technological Society.

This book is a collection of essays on topics concerning the existence of humankind on Earth to aid readers in personal reflection and transformation. Essay authors have been chosen to write personal essays on areas of their expertise or interest. It is broken into four sections: Self, Humankind, Religion and Earth. It is very personal, subjective and it challenges readers to do their own Deep Dive to come up with their own conclusions on the various topics. It is not a political book, about politics nor should it viewed from a political lens. How did we get here?Why are we here?What are we/me doing here?Where are we going from here?These are existential questions worth exploring. They all have to do with our existence on Earth. Will we definitively answer them for you?No. That's impossible-for many reasons.But we will try to help you answer them for yourself.How we got here, why we are here, and where are we going from here, is merely conjecture. Atheists (those who do not believe in God) will say that our being here is merely the confluence of chance, matter, and time.Theists (those who believe in God) believe that we are human manifestations in the image of God, the creator of all things.Their differences of opinion are a matter of debate for another forum, so we will leave those questions for scientists, philosophers, and religious scholars.We will focus on what we are doing here, because that is the most answerable by using provable, factual data. We have a pretty good idea of what we are doing here, because our collective, human actions have historical imprints and attendant consequences. Those actions, over time, also result in verifiable change: change to humankind, the planet Earth, and all living things on Earth. Those changes are often referred to as evolution. But, contrary to popular belief, human evolution is not on a vertical line of continual improvement, since there are periods of growth and decline over millions of years. While scientific evolution is incremental (built upon previous knowledge), human evolution is not, because the human experience is an ongoing experiment.Maybe the better question is: Why are we doing what we are doing here?Another way to phrase that is asking the question: What is our collective purpose? Then, Diving Deeper, we occasionally ask ourselves about our individual purpose. Our book is, therefore, a Self-Socratic Endeavor-an exploration of ourselves by questioning the choices we make in our lives.A byproduct of "What is mankind doing and why?" is "What are the impacts of what we are doing here on Earth?"We will be discussing both- our individual purpose and impact and our collective, societal purpose and impact. These questions led to the idea for this book, which I am writing for my kids and their kids: Never stop exploring. Always be curious. Seek adventure. Work together. The essays in this book will discuss those issues and components of human nature, behavior, relationships, emotions, motivations, and contexts.

The book is an attempt to bring together what are often seen as incommensurable scientific and philosophical positions. Its core argument is that a main reason for the divisions about what constitutes scientific knowledge relates to disagreements on philosophical issues. The book explores what these disagreements are about, and discusses whether they can be overcome. Taking a historical perspective, the book traces the divides in science back to three main philosophical traditions: realism, idealism, and scepticism. It maps how these have inspired three main current positions in science: logical empiricism, phenomenology, and sociology of scientific knowledge. The book is intended for a general audience concerned with today’s debates on scientific knowledge and society. It will be useful for students and researchers studying philosophy of science, sociology of scientific knowledge, realism, phenomenology, positivism, logical empiricism, analytical philosophy, and sustainable scientific knowledge.
