Philosophy for Polar Explorers by Erling Kagge

Book Description

What they don't teach you at school What's better? A bird in your hand or two in the bush? Jump the fence at the lowest or highest point? And what does that have to do with Harry Potter, Tenzing Norgay, Paris Hilton and Aristotle? Are you and Tony Soprano searching for the same things as Socrates did? And what does a Swedish punk rock band have in common with the philosopher Spinoza? It's about dreams, ups and downs and motivation. Mainly, it's not only about becoming someone, but how important it is just to be on your way. And don't forget that everyone can surprise him or herself, and do something unique and special in their lives. It might not be as difficult as you think.

Author Biography - Erling Kagge

Erling Kagge, born in 1963, is one of the world's most accomplished living explorers. He was the first in history to achieve the hat trick of the North Pole, the South Pole and the summit of Mount Everest. He has sailed across the Atlantic, around Cape Horn, to the Antarctic and to the Galapagos Islands. Kagge is also a major collector of Russian icons and contemporary art. He spent nineteen years at school and in university, but this book is not about what he learned at school. Philosophy for Polar Explorers is a bestseller in Norway. Erling Kagge draws on experience from his own expeditions, the art world, the publishing industry, and family life. He uses references from popular culture, the history of philosophy, surfing, famous adventures and the world of contemporary art.
