DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
What does Christianity tell us about Nietzsche's aphorisms? Can philosophical anthropology throw light on Christian belief? With a chain of its metaphorical expressions, aphorisms, and psychological arguments, Zura Shiolashvili's The Prelude of Divine Wisdom in the Art of Aphorism sets out a fascinating picture of the science of the soul on this point, in contrast to Nietzsche's merely corporeal wisdom, which Shiolashvili denounces as clever idiocy.
This book plumbs the immeasurable depth of the spiritual aesthetics of the Christian religion and impels readers to meditate upon the eternal nature of thought as a phenomenology of spiritual beauty. Shiolashvili has authored a brilliant masterpiece on spiritual aesthetics which has few rivals, if indeed any, within the worlds of theology or philosophy.
Author, Zura Shiolashvili a Georgian Philosopher. The entirety of his life has been devoted to researching the Christian idea of nature. His writing has been featured in The Philosopher, one of the world's oldest and most respected philosophy journals. (The Journal of the Philosophical Society of England) where he had been Aesthetics Editor (2006-2011).
'Aphorisms can be seen as an art: making the best connection between existing knowledge so as to reveal some truth through the shortest expression. Very few philosophers have tried to use this approach in their philosophy, although it was certainly there in the Ancient tradition of the Chinese sages, as well as in the writings of Parmenides and other Ancients. More recently, Nietzsche and Wittgenstein seemed to write almost in aphorisms. Here Zura Shiolashvili sets out to prove the case.'
