Book Alert: Rainstorm of Tomorrow (Renyuan Dong)
Released for pre-order this week, Rainstorm of Tomorrow by Renyuan Dong.
Rainstorm of Tomorrow: The Ever-Flowing Banquet of Philosophy dexterously weaves the storied philosophical themes of truth, ethics, and aesthetics together with the theories of relativity, quantum mechanics, neuroscience, epigenetics, social Darwinism, utilitarianism, evolutionary psychology, and modern art—from the soberest rationality to the wildest conjecture—to generate provocative or even alienated discourse on topics that readers might otherwise regard themselves as being familiar with, and challenge them into rethinking any settled positions that are taken for granted. Such provocative insights are represented by the three parts on truth, ethics, and aesthetics respectively:
(I) A reversed worldview—the tree growing into the soil with its roots buried in the air.
(II) The complexity of ethical behaviors—the conformity to utilitarianism by anti-utilitarian events and the violation of utilitarianism by seemingly utilitarian events.
(III) The establishment of universal aesthetics—memory inheritance through “the encephalic waterpipe.”
Book can be pre-ordered from Barnes & Noble and msipress.com/shop.
