Download You Don T Have To Be Buddhist To Know Nothing books, Travel in mid-air, discover naught! Joan Konner brings us delightful little nothings packed in a vacuum: we now have the world's nothingness at our feet.-Philippe Petit, high wire artistA choice selection from language's higher vineyards, that almost makes you comfortable with the unthinkable.-Robert Kaplan, author of The Nothing That Is, and co-founder, with his wife Ellen, of The Math CircleThis is a book about Nothing. It is full of Nothing and I have learned more about Nothing from this book than I could have imagined-or could not have.-Edward Albee***'Nothing' is the forceThat renovates the World.-EMILY DICKINSONI love talking about nothing....It is the only thing I know anything about. -OSCAR WILDENothingness lies coiled in the heart of being-like a worm. -JEAN-PAUL SARTREWho in this world has not felt the power of this: a nothing!-VICTOR HUGOWhether a subject of dread or of fascination, nothing (often spelled with a capital N) has intrigued writers, philosophers, and scientists since ancient times. In this sound-bite history of the concept of nothing, distinguished journalist Joan Konner-author of the bestselling The Atheist's Bible-has created a unique anthology devoted to, well, ... nothing. The collection brings together, in one portable volume, the thoughts of well-known writers and philosophers, artists and musicians, poets and playwrights, geniuses and jokers, demonstrating that some of the finest minds explored, feared, confronted, experienced, and played with the real or imagined presence of nothing in their lives.Paradoxical? Yes, indeed. You Don't Have to Be Buddhist to Know Nothing shows that, like many Eastern sages, deep thinkers in the West also recognized and pondered nonexistence as an essential component and complement of existence itself. Organized in short topical chapters from Knowing Nothing to the Joy of Unknowing and Nothing is Sacred, the verbal snapshots captured in this collection create a coherent work of insight, wisdom, humor and wonder.You Don't Have to Be Buddhist to Know Nothing is compelling enough to be read all at once or in short bursts, as the spirit moves.Joan Konner (New York, NY) conceived and edited The Atheist's Bible, which became a national bestseller in 2007. She is Dean Emerita and Professor Emerita of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, as well as the former publisher and currently an honorary cochair of the Columbia Journalism Review.
