It not only seeks an answer to the biggest philosophical question of all “why is there anything at all” but more importantly recognizes that” Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty!” The House on the Hill is an illusionary place were potential profound ideas become actualized and realized. It is the unification of philosophy, art, religion, quantum mechanics, science, music, literature, mathematics, and the mind merged into one collective system known as The Glass Bead Game. It is my Metaphysics of Being. What does it mean to be truly free?” Mark Megna

Glass Bead Game from the Author: Alka Macwan. Glass Bead Game (1943) describes a journey of a boy, who rises to the highest post 'Magister Ludi', in a pedagogic province called Castalia to the real world to serve the larger culture. He understands the essence of history which helps him to be free from the bondage of that rule - driven system. The philosophical analysis of characters' chapter-wise development in this novel and the importance of events for describing human development pattern delineates how Hermann Hesse, 'a writer of man's interior' presents his hero undertake self exploration within himself and into the world he lives. This book proclaims that Hesse's thinking alludes to the interior of an individual journey than the exterior of it. His views provide a deep revelation about all the aspect of human life.

Cybersemiotics from the Author: Soren Brier. A growing field of inquiry, biosemiotics is a theory of cognition and communication that unites the living and the cultural world. What is missing from this theory, however, is the unification of the information and computational realms of the non-living natural and technical world. Cybersemiotics provides such a framework. By integrating cybernetic information theory into the unique semiotic framework of C.S. Peirce, Søren Brier attempts to find a unified conceptual framework that encompasses the complex area of information, cognition, and communication science. This integration is performed through Niklas Luhmann's autopoietic systems theory of social communication. The link between cybernetics and semiotics is, further, an ethological and evolutionary theory of embodiment combined with Lakoff and Johnson's 'philosophy in the flesh.' This demands the development of a transdisciplinary philosophy of knowledge as much common sense as it is cultured in the humanities and the sciences. Such an epistemological and ontological framework is also developed in this volume. Cybersemiotics not only builds a bridge between science and culture, it provides a framework that encompasses them both. The cybersemiotic framework offers a platform for a new level of global dialogue between knowledge systems, including a view of science that does not compete with religion but offers the possibility for mutual and fruitful exchange.

From West To East And Back Again from the Author: Peter Roberts. Of all the great Western novelists of the twentieth century, the German writer Hermann Hesse is arguably one of the most important for educationists. Paying particular attention to Hesse’s last novel, The Glass Bead Game, and its immediate predecessor, The Journey to the East, this book suggests that Hesse was a man of the West who turned to the idea of ‘the East’ in seeking to understand himself and his society. From these later texts a rich, complex theory of educational transformation emerges. From West to East and Back Again examines the role of dialogue and uncertainty in the transformative process, considers utopian and ritualistic elements in Hesse’s work, and explores the notion of education serving as a bridge between life and death. Hesse’s novels address philosophical themes and questions of enduring significance, and this book will appeal to all who share an interest in human striving and growth.
