The beginning and the end: Nicolas Berdyaev
A life not based on philosophy is just a random set of activities with no deeper meaning and purpose. Philosophy lends meaning and purpose to life and more importantly it helps one to make sense of the complex nature of human life.
Nicolas Berdyaev in this book explores some of the most important questions of life – the nature of reality, mind, thoughts, different schools of thought etc. This book is a fascinating and informative read to understand complex problems of life.
The beginning and the end explores thoughts and ideas of various great philosophers. Nicholas uses his impeccable logical and reasoning skills to dissect different philosophical thoughts to reveal insights that are both practical and real.
Although slightly circulative and a little difficult to read, the book for sure answers some important questions. His philosophical understanding is deep rooted in spirituality and the inner nature of man which makes it all the more practical and useful.
