Wie findet man das wahre Glück? Wie lässt sich Erfolg wirklich bemessen? Und wie geht man mit den Herausforderungen des Alltags wie Wut, Trauer und der Frage nach dem Sinn des Ganzen um? Was große Geister wie George Washington, Friedrich der Große, Weltklassesportler oder Top-Performer längst für sich entdeckt haben, liegt mit "Der tägliche Stoiker" erstmals gesammelt vor. New York Times-Bestsellerautor Ryan Holiday und Stephen Hanselman haben das Wissen der Stoiker in 366 zeitlose Lektionen verpackt und zeigen, dass die Philosophie des Stoizismus nicht nur zeitlos, sondern gerade für unsere hektische und unsichere Zeit ein Segen ist. Weisheit, Mut, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Selbstbeherrschung sowie Gelassenheit lassen sich erlernen und helfen uns, in der zunehmenden Komplexität unserer Welt zu bestehen. Die uralten Weisheiten der Stoiker, gesammelt und kommentiert, unterstützen bei diesen alltäglichen Herausforderungen.

Auf der Suche nach der Wahrheit - der Ex-FBI-Direktor klagt an

Die Erinnerungen von Ex-FBI-Chef James B. Comey sind aktuell, brisant und spannend wie ein Krimi. 2017 von Präsident Trump gefeuert, schreibt Comey einen fesselnden Insider-Bericht über politische Machenschaften und das von Donald Trump korrumpierte System. Ein Sachbuch wie ein Kriminalroman der Extraklasse: James Comeys brisante Erinnerungen an die vergangenen 20 Jahre im Zentrum der Macht zeigen ihn als unbeugsamen Ermittler, der gegen die Mafia, gegen CIA-Folter und NSA-Überwachung, und zuletzt im Wahlkampf 2016 gegen Hillary Clintons Umgang mit dienstlichen Emails und Donald Trumps Russland-Verbindungen vorgegangen ist. Der Weg des parteilosen New Yorker Vorzeigejuristen gleicht einer politischen Achterbahnfahrt: stellvertretender Justizminister unter George W. Bush, zum FBI-Direktor ernannt von Barack Obama und gefeuert von Donald Trump wegen angeblicher Illoyalität. Sein Buch ist ein eindrückliches Lehrstück über den aufrechten Gang in einer verantwortungslosen Regierung.

Anarchie, Staat, Utopia

Dieses Buch wendet sich gegen den uns immer mehr bedrohenden und wuchernden Moloch Staat. Es enthält eine aufsehenerregende philosophische Herausforderung an die verbreitetsten politischen und sozialen Auffassungen unserer Zeit, sowohl die liberalen, sozialistischen als auch konservativen. "Anarchie, Staat, Utopia" widerspricht der heute vorherrschenden Meinung, daß das Wohl der Menschen nur durch ein Mehr an Staat erreicht werden kann. Der Autor deckt einen Widerspruch unserer Gesellschaft auf, die einerseits soziale Sicherung durch den Staat fordert und andererseits ein Höchstmaß an individueller Freiheit beansprucht. Mit zwingender Logik, gedanklicher Tiefe und außerordentlichem Scharfsinn legt Nozick schonungslos dar, welcher Illusion unsere Gesellschaft erliegt, wenn sie der Maschinerie unseres Staates immer mehr Aufgaben aufbürdet, in der Erwartung, daß nur Bürokratie und Verwaltung in der Lage wären, die Probleme der Menschen zu lösen. Dieser scheinbar unaufhaltsamen Entwicklung stellt Nozick seine These eines Minimalstaates entgegen: Der Staat ist laut Nozick nur gerechtfertigt, wenn er streng auf die Funktion des Schutzes gegen Gewalt, Diebstahl, Betrug und Durchsetzung von Verträgen beschränkt wird. Jedes weitergehende staatliche Eingreifen würde, wie Nozick glänzend darlegt, notwendigerweise die Rechte des einzelnen verletzen. Daraus ergeben sich zwei bemerkenswerte Folgerungen, denen ausführlich nachgegangen wird: ”Der Staat darf seinen Zwangsapparat nicht dazu einsetzen, einige Bürger dazu zu bringen, anderen zu helfen oder jemandem um seines eigenen Wohles oder Schutzes willen etwas zu verbieten.
