    1. Colin Wilson

      Colin Henry Wilson was born and raised in Leicester, England, U.K He left school at 16, worked in factories and various occupations, and read in his spare time When Wilson was 24, Gollancz published The Outsider 1956 which examines the role of the social outsider in seminal works of various key literary and cultural figures These include Albert Camus, Jean Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, Hermann Hesse, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, William James, T E Lawrence, Vaslav Nijinsky and Vincent Van Gogh and Wilson discusses his perception of Social alienation in their work The book was a best seller and helped popularize existentialism in Britain Critical praise though, was short lived and Wilson was soon widely criticized.Wilson s works after The Outsider focused on positive aspects of human psychology, such as peak experiences and the narrowness of consciousness He admired the humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow and corresponded with him Wilson wrote The War Against Sleep The Philosophy of Gurdjieff on the life, work and philosophy of G I Gurdjieff and an accessible introduction to the Greek Armenian mystic in 1980 He argues throughout his work that the existentialist focus on defeat or nausea is only a partial representation of reality and that there is no particular reason for accepting it Wilson views normal, everyday consciousness buffeted by the moment, as blinkered and argues that it should not be accepted as showing us the truth about reality This blinkering has some evolutionary advantages in that it stops us from being completely immersed in wonder, or in the huge stream of events, and hence unable to act However, to live properly we need to access than this everyday consciousness Wilson believes that our peak experiences of joy and meaningfulness are as real as our experiences of angst and, since we are fully alive at these moments, they are real These experiences can be cultivated through concentration, paying attention, relaxation and certain types of work.

    1. It was pretty good, it starts off slow but it goes quicker eventually, but it is just one big build up for the 4th and final? book. not a ton of action in it. you are only gonna like this book if your a fan of the series and even then, definitely the weakest in the series.


    2. Probably the best book in the Spider World series for me. I enjoyed the murder mystery angle, and the problems Niall has to go through as the new ruler of the spiders. I also enjoyed the insights into the spider mentality and culture. It was a nice, quick read.
