BW47: 52 Books Bingo - Philosophical and Self Help




Philosophy begins in wonder.  And, at the end, when philosophic thought 
has done its best, the wonder remains.  ~Alfred North Whitehead


Two of our 52 Books Bingo categories fit in perfectly with our nonfiction November theme - Philosophy and Self help - which could actually be one and the same, depending on your point of view.

According to the Book Genre Dictionary:

"Books in the philosophy nonfiction genre are about the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence as an academic discipline. The books in this genre also explore fundamental truths about one’s self, the world, and their relationships. They also delve into and argue the answers to life’s most basic questions, literally exploring the basic fundamentals of knowledge and existence."

"Books in the self-help nonfiction genre are based on one’s own effort and resources to achieve things and goals without relying on the help of others. The books in this genre can be about self-guided improvement in one’s economic standing, their intellectual state of being, and in their emotionally and self-worth state of being."
