Philosophy for Heroes introduces you to the foundation of philosophy and the tools necessary to understand the world—the theory of language and the scientific method. Based on this knowledge, the second part of the series looks at the world as a continuum, from physics (quantum theory) to biology (evolution and the origin of life). These ideas are applied in the third part of the series to clarify what exactly is the inner voice and our consciousness.
The Philosophy for Heroes book series is a scientific inquiry into question: what constitutes a leader—a hero—and how can we become one?
We are each heroes in the making. How can this be? Because we can reflect on our actions. We have the potential to become heroes in every aspect and every action of our lives...
Being a hero is much more than committing a heroic act. One does not magically morph into a "hero" as a result of circumstance: the just-in-time rescue, rising up in the midst of a crisis, or even leading others out of a catastrophe. Becoming a hero is more than even these courageous acts. It requires deep insight—the type of philosophical investigation that the greatest minds throughout history have pondered.
With his book series Philosophy for Heroes, Clemens Lode bridges the gap between coding, science, philosophy, and, ultimately, leadership. In Philosophy for Heroes: Knowledge, he takes the reader on a journey, examining the foundations of knowledge. What is the basis of our understanding of the world? How does society define a "hero"? How do basic skills, such as language and mathematics, train our way of thinking and reasoning?
Becoming a hero requires more than courage. It requires speaking up, stepping forward from the sidelines, and taking action. For all of this, a deep insight into philosophy is the first, and most important, step.
Philosophy for Heroes connects the wisdom of the ages to today's real world.
