  • The Power of Being Cheerfulby Orison Swett Marden

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 5.95

    The soul-consuming and friction-wearing tendency of this hurrying, grasping, competing age is the excuse for this book. Is it not an absolute necessity to get rid of all irritants, of everything which worries and frets, and which brings discord into so many lives? Cheerfulness has a wonderful lubricating power. It lengthens the life of human machinery,... more...

  • How to Do Itby Edward Everett Hale

    The Floating Press 2009; US$ 6.99

    C.H. Beck 2013; US$ 8.94

    Warum braucht der Mensch Moral, warum Ethik? Was unterscheidet die Moral von anderen Verbindlichkeiten menschlichen Handelns?

  • Liber memorialisby Ingemar König

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2012; US$ 35.75

Chr. geschrieben, unbekannt ist aber der Ort, wo er gelebt oder gelehrt hat. Überliefert ist von ihm nur ein einziges kleines Werk, der ?Liber memorialis?. Dieses ?Erinnerungs-? oder ?Gedächtnisbuch?... more...
