Fragmented Philosophy approaches the self-help genre through a philosophical study that encourages readers to investigate, think boldly, and challenge their worldviews.
Fragmented Philosophy does not emulate other self-help books. This book does not address issues of money, health, personal image, daily frustrations, religious dogmatism, or the craving for success. Fragmented Philosophy is a call to self-discovery, an unorthodox map towards perfection through the use of 300 polemic phrases that seek to generate thought and consciousness. It is a painting that exhibits many colors and addresses a myriad of disciplines and human concerns—from art, history, and the social sciences to romantic relationships, the origin of evil, spirituality, and much more.
This book uses a philosophical, non-narrative format. Fragmented Philosophy invites readers to renounce conformity, invest in themselves, and leave their mark on the world. Without a doubt, it is a stimulating and provocative purpose.
Fragmented Philosophy is divided into nine chapters, each of which is headed by its corresponding maxims. In their entirety, the 300 maxims thread the chapters together to create an atlas, or library, of human thought. Each chapter unfolds a set of themes that analyze different subjects related to philosophy, sociology, morality, history, and other disciplines. There is no common thread that unifies a single discussion from the first page to the last. This characteristic works in this book’s favor, given that the different subjects assemble themselves to create a unity that is in keeping with a vast universe of thought that is neither linear nor unidirectional. Friendship, the relationship between good and evil, passion, envy, trust and creativity are some of the themes that are addressed in this book. This unfolds from the inside to the outside, blurring the limits and thus subjecting readers to a constant scrutiny of their being.
This book morally confronts the readers and makes them reflect on the meaning of emotions: friendship, passion, the scope of evil, warmongering, and adversity, among other topics. The little things also acquire a leading role, as in the case of creativity in relation to the greater work, or the role of trust in greatness. This book unfolds different themes that reflect on the material aspects that are present in both our interior and our exterior, while also touching on essential subjects such as truth and the value of life.
In the work, we can find an attempt at deconstructing human traits in order to reflect on the matters that bring us together as a species and which have served as the pillars upon which civilization has been erected.
