The Two Fundamental Problems of Ethics: Essay on the Freedom of the Will, the Basis of Morality by Arthur Schopenhauer
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 310 MB
Overview: The essays in The Two Fundamental Problems of Ethics have a rather special place in Schopenhauer’s work, both being written as entries to Scandinavian philosophy competitions, one in Norway and one in Sweden.
‘Essay on the Freedom of the Will’ was Schopenhauer’s response to the question posed by the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences in 1839: ‘Is it possible to demonstrate human free will from self-consciousness?’ In a clear and confident response, the 51-year-old philosopher, then living in Frankfurt, laid out his views, under headlines such as ‘What is Freedom’, ‘The Will and the Self-Conscious’, ‘The Will and the Consciousness of Other Things’, ‘Predecessors’, ‘Conclusion’ and ‘A Higher View’. The essay won.
The following year, Schopenhauer produced a second work on ethics. The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences proposed the question: ‘Is the fountain and basis of Morals to be sought for in an idea of morality which lies directly in the consciousness (or conscience), and in the analysis of the other leading ethical conceptions which arise from it? Or is it to be found in some other source of knowledge?’ In answer Schopenhauer presented ‘The Basis of Morality’, arguing that morality stems from compassion, but it was denied the prize, though his was the only entry! Despite this unexpected result, Schopenhauer published both works in 1841 under the present title – with characteristic bombast declaring that one had won and the other had not!
Together, these two works offer a compact and accessible account of Schopenhauer’s approach to ethics. ‘Essay on Freedom’ is translated by Konstantin Kolenda. ‘The Basis of Morality’ is translated by Arthur Broderick Bullock.

Act Two (Magnolia Steele Mystery #2) by Denise Grover Swank
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 278.5 MB
Overview: For as long as Magnolia Steele can remember, the past has had its hooks in her. Her time as a Broadway actress in New York City was an escape that ended in public humiliation, but now that she’s back home in Franklin, Tennessee, she’s feeling the grip of the two incidents that stole her innocence. The first was the disappearance of her father when she was a teen, who left home for a meeting and never came back. The other incident . . . well, her memories have returned, but it’s best left where it belongs-in the past. Hoping for closure, Magnolia decides to look into her daddy’s cold case. Though the town gossips are convinced he ran away with his client’s wife and money, she has always suspected foul play. Talking to a few of his old acquaintances seems harmless enough-until the man she’s arranged to meet turns up dead. There’s evidence someone murdered him to keep him quiet, and she realizes that whatever conspiracy her father was mixed up in is far from over; it’s entering its second act.

Double Homicide: Two Tales of True Crime by John Coston
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.6 Mb
Overview: Two riveting true crime sagas-of a mother who murdered her two sons, and a sex-crazed serial killer who terrorized Montana-together in one volume.
In this terrifying collection, veteran reporter and former Wall Street Journal editor John Coston recounts the disturbing crimes of Ellen Boehm and Wayne Nance, two seemingly ordinary citizens who killed for the most twisted and selfish reasons.
Sleep, My Child, Forever: Single mom Ellen Boehm appeared to be a devoted mother. But in reality, she was unequipped for motherhood, financially strapped, and desperate. Within a year of each other, her sons, ages two and four, died mysteriously, and Boehm’s eight-year-old daughter suffered a near-fatal accident when a hair dryer fell into the girl’s bath. Det. Sgt. Joseph Burgoon of St. Louis Homicide soon unraveled a labyrinth of deception, greed, and obsession that revealed a cold-blooded killer whose get-rich-quick scheme came at the cost of her children’s lives.
To Kill and Kill Again: To neighbors, Wayne Nance appeared to be an affable, considerate, and trustworthy guy. No one knew that he was the “Missoula Mauler,” a psychopath responsible for a series of sadistic sex slayings that rocked the idyllic town between 1974 and 1986. His victims included a preacher’s wife, a teenage runaway, and a female acquaintance. Then, one September night, Nance pushed his luck, preying on a couple that lived to tell the tale.
