Book Description :

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of ‘We can have it all’ and ‘I have to do everything’ and replacing it with the pursuit of ‘the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.

Book Description :

Real Essentialism presents a comprehensive defence of neo-Aristotelian essentialism. Do objects have essences? Must they be the kinds of things they are in spite of the changes they undergo? Can we know what things are really like – can we define and classify reality? Many if not most philosophers doubt this, influenced by centuries of empiricism, and by the anti-essentialism of Wittgenstein, Quine, Popper, and other thinkers. Real Essentialism reinvigorates the tradition of realist, essentialist metaphysics, defending the reality and knowability of essence, the possibility of objective, immutable definition, and its relevance to contemporary scientific and metaphysical issues such as whether essence transcends physics and chemistry, the essence of life, the nature of biological species, and the nature of the person.

Essentialism by Greg McKeown | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review Preview: Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less is a self-help book by Greg McKeown. The book outlines a minimalist approach to tasks and obligations by focusing on truly important goals and learning to turn down opportunities that do not directly contribute to meeting those goals. The modern fixation with multitasking and having it all has paradoxically resulted in accomplished, motivated people doing many relatively unimportant things poorly while neglecting their true goals because they are afraid of refusing any request… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Book Description :

Expecting a gentle baby tiger to inevitably grow up to be ferocious, a young girl growing up in a household of boys to prefer princesses to toy trucks, or that liberals and conservatives are fundamentally different kinds of people, all reflect a conceptual commitment to psychological essentialism. Psychological essentialism is a pervasive conceptual bias to think that some everyday categories reflect the real, underlying, natural structure of the world. Whereas essentialist thought can sometimes be useful, it is often problematic, particularly when people rely on essentialist thinking to understand groups of people, including those based on gender, race, ethnicity, or religion. This Volume will bring together diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives on how essentialist thinking about the social world develops in childhood and on the implications of these beliefs for children’s social behavior and intergroup relations more generally. This volume draws on diverse theoretical perspectives from psychology, philosophy, and linguistics, and empirical work from experiments with children and cross-cultural studies to provide a comprehensive view of how social essentialism develops. This volume addresses the link between cognition (essentialist beliefs) and social behavior, with implications for prejudice, morality, the justice system, and inter-group relations. By drawing on a diverse evidence base, this volume addresses how beliefs emerge from the interplay among children’s conceptual biases and their social experiences.

Book Description :

J. N. Mohanty is one of America's leading interpreters of Husserl's phenomenology and the phenomenological movement for which Husserl's work was the impetus. This collection of essays traces the themes of essentialism and transcendentalism as they have appeared in the development of phenomenology from Husserl to Derrida. Beginning with Husserl's major phenomenological themes--essence, meaning, transcendental subjectivity, and life-world--Mohanty examines the tensions within phenomenology in general and within Husserl's phenomenology in particular. The accessibility of these essays, coupled with Mohanty's consideration of lesser-known phenomenologists (Ingarden, Scheler, Hartmann, et. al.) mark this as a major updating of phenomenology for a contemporary audience.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

In "The Philosophy of Nature," Brian Ellis provides a clear and forthright general summation of, and introduction to, the new essentialist position. Although the theory that the laws of nature are immanent in things, rather than imposed on them from without, is an ancient one, much recent work has been done to revive interest in essentialism and "The Philosophy of Nature" is a distinctive contribution to this lively current debate. Brian Ellis exposes the philosophical and scientific credentials of the prevailing Humean metaphysic as less than compelling and makes the case for new essentialism as an alternative metaphysical perspective in lucid and unambiguous terms. This book develops this alternative metaphysic and considers the consequences for philosophy, and for some other areas of investigation, of working with such a metaphysic. Ellis argues that these consequences are profound and that a new essentialism provides a comprehensive new philosophy of nature for a modern scientific understanding of the world.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

In this book, Vasilis Politis argues that Plato's Forms are essences, not merely things that have an essence. Politis shows that understanding Plato's theory of Forms as a theory of essence presents a serious challenge to contemporary philosophers who regard essentialism as little more than an optional item on the philosophical menu. This approach, he suggests, also constitutes a sharp critique of those who view Aristotelian essentialism as the only sensible position: Plato's essentialism, Politis demonstrates, is a well-argued, rigorous, and coherent theory, and a viable competitor to that of Aristotle. This book will appeal to students and scholars with an interest in the intersection between philosophy and the history of philosophy.

Book Description :

Against Essentialism presents a sociological theory of culture. This interdisciplinary and foundational work deals with basic issues common to current debates in social theory, including society, culture, meaning, truth, and communication. Stephan Fuchs argues that many mysteries about these concepts lose their mysteriousness when dynamic variations are introduced. Fuchs proposes a theory of culture and society that merges two core traditions--American network theory and European (Luhmannian) systems theory. His book distinguishes four major types of social observers--encounters, groups, organizations, and networks. Society takes place in these four modes of association. Each generates levels of observation linked with each other into a culture--the unity of these observations. Against Essentialism presents a groundbreaking new approach to the construction of society, culture, and personhood. The book invites both social scientists and philosophers to see what happens when essentialism is abandoned.

Book Description :

Everybody is running up and down, busy and striving hard to do more so as to achieve more. Yet, the most successful achievers always seem to have a lot of time on their hands. Every other person on the planet is trying to put their hands in many pies at once yet the most remarkably successful personalities have very few endeavors at once. They focus more on what must be done rather than the things they feel they want to do. That is the most common denominator running through the lives of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Nikolai Tesla, Elon Musk and Reverend Martin Luther King. They focus on the most essential things and requirements and shun every other thing. Essentialism is key to huge success and contentment but it is even much more effective when paired with minimalism. Essentialism and minimalism are two sides of the same coin; two peas in the same pod. They dovetail and complement each other perfectly without any conflict. Essentialism says; "Do less," minimalism screams; "Have less." Together, they can help you focus on your objectives, eliminate uncertain needs and derive the maximum from your potentials, strengths and opportunities. By conserving your artillery for the big and important occasions, you can ensure that you produce beyond expectations. Most especially, you will also attain great contentment, happiness and an inexhaustible supply of satisfaction and confidence. The latest book in my essentialism series, this book; - Convinces you further to jettison the consumerism principle - Further explains what essentialism is and what it is not - Gives you reasons to embrace essentialism as a life choice - Explains why society's idea of happiness is wrong - Teaches you to prioritize and stay true to your priorities - Redefines happiness and contentment - Demystifies minimalism - Defines the boundaries of minimalism - Gives you the reasons why minimalism is such a good idea - Shows the link between essentialism and minimalism - Advocates for why you can be a better essentialist by becoming minimalist - Provides compelling reason for you to join essentialism and minimalism - Shows you how to combine essentialism and minimalism - Provides a stepwise guide to building the right mindset for becoming an essentialist minimalist - Lays down the framework for adding minimalism to essentialism - Serves to prepare you for my next blockbuster bestselling book on essentialism GET YOUR COPY NOW!

Book Description :

INTRODUCTIONDo you usually say, "I have to do it / I should do it", instead of freely choosing if you want to do a certain activity? If you answered yes, then you are not following the path of essentialism. This book, written by Greg McKeown, studies essentialism, a systematic discipline that seeks to locate the most essential tasks of a particular activity. This approach allows for a more planned and easier execution of your routine, since it will eliminate everything that is unnecessary. The aim of the author is to help us discover what is fundamental, essential, a thought that will allow us to have a more useful and productive life.If we define essentialism in a few words, we would say that it is the art of doing less but with a better outcome. In other words, the idea is to do the essentials and make smarter use of your time, energy and resources. Essentialism seeks to achieve few but significant achievements, instead of having many of little relevance. But how do we distinguish between the relevant and the irrelevant, the necessary from the unnecessary? We must learn to simplify our lives.It may seem like an unrealistic postulate, but let's reflect a little on this. To work in current societies and achieve a good standard of living with better opportunities, peoples work schedules tend to be excessive. We are bombarded with this idea of abundance, resulting in our feeling that we must have everything, but can we? Evidently, not. We cannot know everything, and we cannot have all the tools and if we did, it doesnt mean that we would be happy. If we analyze this thought of abundance, you will see that there are many things or activities that become unnecessary, simply because you do not have the time to make use of them. For this reason, it is better that we focus on what we should do, on what is fundamental to our happiness and our success.These arguments are based on McKeown's background as a business coach and his own personal experiences. He proposes that if we focus on "less, but better" our progress will be huge, because we will be directing our efforts in one direction, instead of dividing it into thousands of directions. In this text you will learn to identify the essential things in your life and how you can eliminate unnecessary activities. This process seems very simple and trivial, but it will allow you to develop a greater mental and emotional strength, and an attitude that will greatly improve your performance. In addition, focusing only on the essentials allows us to be clearer in our objectives and our decision making is better. Although it seems hard to believe, our decision-making ability is undermined by the overwhelming feeling of having too much to do. And this path leads to one place: having a life full of passivity.ABOUT GREG MCKEOWN: AUTHOR OF THE ORIGINAL BOOKGreg McKeown (born in London, England, in 1977) is a public speaker, a leadership and business consultant, and also an author.He is the founder and CEO of THIS, Inc., a leadership and strategy design agency based in Silicon Valley.In 2012, the World Economic Forum introduced McKeown to the Young Global Leaders Forum.His project Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, is a business and self-help book that deals with how to lead a more meaningful and successful life.McKeown earned an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business after studying communications and journalism at Brigham Young University.Originally from England, he is now a US citizen and lives in Menlo Park, California.

Book Description :

Essentialism is the idea that certain categories, such as "dog," "man," or "intelligence," have an underlying reality or true nature that gives objects their identity. Where does this idea come from? In this book, Susan Gelman argues that essentialism is an early cognitive bias. Young children's concepts reflect a deep commitment to essentialism, and this commitment leads children to look beyond the obvious in many converging ways: when learning words, generalizing knowledge to new category members, reasoning about the insides of things, contemplating the role of nature versus nurture, and constructing causal explanations. Gelman argues against the standard view of children as concrete or focused on the obvious, instead claiming that children have an early, powerful tendency to search for hidden, non-obvious features of things. She also attacks claims that children build up their knowledge of the world based on simple, associative learning strategies, arguing that children's concepts are embedded in rich folk theories. Parents don't explicitly teach children to essentialize; instead, during the preschool years, children spontaneously construct concepts and beliefs that reflect an essentialist bias. Essentialist accounts have been offered, in one form or another, for thousands of years, extending back at least to Aristotle and Plato. Yet this book is the first to address the issues surrounding essentialism from a psychological perspective. Gelman synthesizes over 15 years of empirical research on essentialism into a unified framework and explores the broader lessons that the research imparts concerning, among other things, human concepts, children's thinking, and the ways in which language influences thought. This volume will appeal to developmental, cognitive, and social psychologists, as well as to scholars in cognitive science and philosophy.
