9781502848277: Thirty Seven: Essays On Life, Wisdom, And Masculinity
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Quintus Curtius is an essayist and cultural observer. This collection of essays showcases his keen interest in philosophical and moral questions, achieving what one reviewer called “a perfect fluency in [a] dialogue with truth.” The unifying theme of the book is the nature of masculine identity, and how that identity has been manifested. The range of topics explored is diverse: the nature of human wisdom, courage in adversity, redemption through suffering, the endurance of hardships, educational development, character in history, the mystical experience, the fickleness of Fate, and the necessity of myths. These are just some of the varied themes treated in the author's passionate and probing search for truth. Drawing on examples from history and using sources in their original languages, the author combines lucid explanation and a probing intensity like few other writers. Erudite, thoughtful, and frequently moving, this unique book has been described as "inexplicably inspiring."

Biographie de l'auteur :

Quintus Curtius is an essayist and cultural observer. His writings deal primarily with historical, literary, philosophical, educational, and moral subjects, with an emphasis on masculinity and its contemporary meaning. His first book, "Thirty Seven", is a collection of essays characterized by a passionate search for the essence of the modern masculine identity, and how that identity can best be shaped. Drawing on the experience of thousands of years of history, Quintus codifies the essence of the male experience in a way that no other contemporary writer has attempted.
