THE NEW E-BOOK

ALEXANDER’S APHORISMS by ALEXANDER PETER DUKES

THEME AND METHOD OF THE E-BOOK

On the whole,
this is not an e-book about aphorisms – i.e. those
concise pithy statements, observations or maxims
defining, expressing, encapsulating or illustrating
a general, global or universal principle or precept.

Instead, it uses around
1600 original aphorisms
to develop its
OVERALL THEME –
SAVING THE EARTH
by focussing on factors
preventing or making this outcome
more difficult at a dangerous time
in our lives and life of this planet.

Largely colour-coded
according to subject,
with a single aphorism per page,
they pursue a path through
politics, science and cosmology,
psychology, conflict, extremism and war,
in conclusion
alighting on and enlightening via
spirituality, ecology and saving the Earth.

UNDERLYING THEME
The search for ultimate reality
in the debate between
religion and science.

What People Have Said About Alexander’s Aphorisms

{

The green chapter in this book would make a classic textbook about evolution, ecology, environment and saving the planet.

– Dan Barker, landscape gardener

{

Carefully crafted both in meaning and appearance, it is very unusual for a book of aphorisms to develop a theme throughout, especially in such a striking manner.

– Ruth Caleb, producer/executive producer, film and television

{

With clarity of meaning and beauty of appearance, this stunning creation will live among the greatest books of original aphorisms.  A myriad brilliant ideas punctuated with gems.

JAMES ROOSE-EVANS, THEATRE DIRECTOR, AUTHOR, PRIEST

{

Frequently with a pleasant turn of phrase.  At times poetic, lyrical and rhythmic.  In fact, I would like to put some of these aphorisms to music.

– David Vorhaus, composer, musician and inventor

{

As clever and witty as evocative and informative.  A great work of aphoristic philosophy or philosophic aphorisms in the making.  Can’t wait to see the book.

– Al Alvarez, poet, critic, editor and author.

{

We have ‘thought for the day’ and ‘prayer for day’ on the radio.  So why not aphorism for the day as well?  Explain its background thinking; then conclude with a punchline composed of one of your aphorisms.

– Piers Plowright, radio producer
