Today, we live and do business in a world where society gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom. It is a world of continuous revolution and change. Those who manage to find structure and exploit the power of ´Wild Knowledge´ -- ie, the untamed data, learnings and experiences that flourish in our lives and minds -- will come out the winners. This book presents a radical way of doing this.
The Power of Knowledge reveals the reality of ´´Knowledge,´´ the deeper spiritual mind within you which holds the key to finding your greater purpose and direction in life. Book 5 of the New Message from God contains 14 revelations given to present the reality of your spiritual nature, the crisis of living apart from your deeper nature and how you can escape this crisis and begin the journey of healing the division between your thinking mind with the mind of Knowledge within you. With this comes the possibility of following Knowledge in the now and in the future, leading you to a new life, new relationships and the fulfillment of your purpose for being in the world. Through this book, you have the opportunity to understand where Knowledge lives in your experience and to build a lasting connection to this deeper experience that has always been with you. The book Steps to Knowledge takes this further in the form of a daily practice you can begin to apply in your life. The journey of finding and following Knowledge will bring you back to your original purpose for being in the world, the memory of those who sent you and the greater contribution you are meant to provide to a world facing great and difficult change in the future. Here a sacred process begins that has the power to free you from the past and prepare you for a new and greater life in the future. Each chapter of The Power of Knowledge is a revelation given from the Source, compiled into this text by the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers. A New Message from God has come into the world. It is an expression of the timeless pure connection with God as it has existed throughout human history and since the beginning of the manifest universe. Humanity now has direct access to this pure experience, unobstructed by human misunderstanding, authority and corruption. It has now entered the world anew.
What is epistemology or ´´the theory of knowledge?´´ What is it really about? Why does it matter? What makes theorizing about knowledge ´´philosophical?´´ Why do some philosophers argue that epistemology--perhaps even philosophy itself--is dead? In this succinct, exciting, and original introduction to epistemology, Michael Williams explains and criticizes philosophical theories of the nature, limits, methods, possibility, and value of knowing. A coherent and progressive text, Problems of Knowledge covers both traditional and contemporary approaches to the subject, including foundationalism, the coherence theory, and ´´naturalistic´´ theories. As an alternative to these perspectives, Williams defends his own distinctive contextualist approach. Problems of Knowledge provides clear and engaging explanations of the theory of knowledge and why it matters, offering an excellent foundation for students in introductory epistemology courses.
Maps of physical spaces locate us in the world and help us navigate unfamiliar routes.

This book, from the author of Atlas of Science, describes the power of topical maps, providing readers with principles for visualizing knowledge and offering as examples forty large-scale and more than 100 small-scale full-color maps.

Michel Foucault has become famous for a series of books that have permanently altered our understanding of many institutions of Western society. He analyzed mental institutions in the remarkable Madness and Civilization; hospitals in The Birth of the Clinic; prisons in Discipline and Punish; and schools and families in The History of Sexuality. But the general reader as well as the specialist is apt to miss the consistent purposes that lay behind these difficult individual studies, thus losing sight of the broad social vision and political aims that unified them. Now, in this superb set of essays and interviews, Foucault has provided a much-needed guide to Foucault. These pieces, ranging over the entire spectrum of his concerns, enabled Foucault, in his most intimate and accessible voice, to interpret the conclusions of his research in each area and to demonstrate the contribution of each to the magnificent -- and terrifying -- portrait of society that he was patiently compiling. For, as Foucault shows, what he was always describing was the nature of power in society; not the conventional treatment of power that concentrates on powerful individuals and repressive institutions, but the much more pervasive and insidious mechanisms by which power ´´reaches into the very grain of individuals, touches their bodies and inserts itself into their actions and attitudes, their discourses, learning processes and everyday lives´´ Foucault´s investigations of prisons, schools, barracks, hospitals, factories, cities, lodgings, families, and other organized forms of social life are each a segment of one of the most astonishing intellectual enterprises of all time -- and, as this book proves, one which possesses profound implications for understanding the social control of our bodies and our minds.
