SOLARIS HIBERNIA: A Philosophising Beau-Ideal

· Richard Mc Sweeney

About this ebook

An enriching 21st century work of original philosophical fiction ideal for throwing some light on various philosophical concerns of the individual; encouraging group discussion and inviting scholarly exploration.

Clearly you are someone who is looking for meanings to life. In your search for them you have perhaps been spending an inordinate amount of time strolling and basking in say the company of Tolle, Dyer, Chopra, Winfrey, Coelho, Meyer, Jakes, O'Donohue, Glenstal, Byrne and Nietzsche and even the Dalai Lama. Howsoever, of late you have been feeling the need to be on the look out for possible alternatives; alternatives that would be edging out of the ordinary, if not in fact hovering outside it for extended periods of time. If such is the case, then you owe it to yourself to give this present contemplative work some serious consideration. Assuredly, it will not disappoint for here is an exceptional book; a virtual cornucopia of original accumulated wisdom; a treasure trove of creative philosophical allegories that you will greatly enjoy delving into. You will be looking forward to reading Solaris Hibernia by degrees; needing you to but read from it a few passages a day for a sagely takeaway.

The fonts and page numbering in this ebook correspond to the 2019 hardback edition.
