9781467902854: Principa The Pleasure of Common Sense

Principa: The Pleasure of Common Sense Humankind, the universe, and the connections between them inspired author Robert Walker’s immersion in the process of self-observation, one which he intends both to provide an enhanced insight into and one that he believes is the underpinning of understanding all we perceive. A groundbreaking marriage of psychology, quantum physics, and astrophysics allows Walker to break out from the preconceived notions of previous generations to consider a world far more integrated than previously imagined. Centered on the use of critical thinking, Walker demonstrates how necessary it is as a tool for understanding life’s experiences, our personal relationships, and the cultural implications that avail themselves to us through its application. Accompanied by maps and diagrams that illustrate the various relationships among one’s feelings, experiences, and thought processes, Walker takes a new, divergent approach to the idea of human creation. Delivering the positive message that human beings are uniquely special and our potential for creating a healthy, sane, and empathetic society has yet to be tapped, Principa: The Pleasure of Common Sense is an uplifting message of hope and wonder, and is a bracing tonic of good cheer at a time when it’s needed most.

About the Author:

Robert A. Walker served the people of New York City for nearly three decades in three different agencies during the last 16years with the New York City Police Department before retiring in 2008. He helped design telecommunications systems for firms such as White Weld, First Hanover, and Source Securities, and was responsible for the design, implementation, and distribution of mobile communication devices for the entire N.Y.P.D.

From Kirkus Reviews:

   Walker’s debut posits that the key to personal enlightenment and happiness lies at the crosshairs of psychology, science and rational thought.
   As a philosopher, Walker doesn’t resemble a wayward new-age religious leader, a trained psychiatrist or a noted scientist. Yet his understanding of such topics forms a workable theory of enlightenment, one that is best utilized one strand at a time. The author begins by asserting the importance of rational thought in harnessing control over one’s life and in achieving global understanding. Walker urges the reader to be open-minded as he advises against proceeding further if you aren’t open to a variety of possibilities. Having laid his logical foundation, Walker next takes up the metaphysics of existence, relying equally on philosophical tenets and
quantum mechanics as a guide. A road map of the human experience starts as a simple collection of spheres marked for physical, emotional and mental states of being. As the chapters pass, the map morphs into a well-illustrated diagram of a challenging, typical life. Walker deconstructs the thinking of such luminaries as Einstein, Plato, Freud and Darwin, among others, in an attempt to illustrate a “unified theory” of how all the divergent parts of existence come together. He also makes allowances for morality and religion, and use technology as a great comparative device to discuss emotional and physiological responses. The book is written in matter-of-fact and easily accessible prose, considering its heady nature. Although the author repeatedly insists that this work is not a self-help guide, readers will be unable to deny Walker’s good-natured attempts to encourage the implementation of his useful system of beliefs.
   An inspiring read for those looking for enlightenment beyond the standard questions and answers.
