Existentialism is back Carpe diem – ‘seize the day’ – is one of the oldest pieces of life advice in Western history. But its true spirit has been hijacked by ad men and self-help gurus, reduced to the instant hit of one-click online shopping, or slogans like ‘live in the now’. We need to reclaim it to make sense of our complex, confusing times. The last great expression of carpe diem was in the electrifying existential philosophy of the 1940s. Today it’s an idea that challenges us to confront our mortality and live with greater passion and intention rather than scroll mindlessly on our phones or allow freedom to become a mere choice between brands. In Carpe Diem Regained, Roman Krznaric reinvents existentialism for our age of information and choice overload. An essential and empowering work of contemporary philosophy, the book unveils the surprising ways of seizing the day that humankind has discovered over the centuries, ones we urgently need to revive. Carpe diem is the existentialism for our times.

In the midst of our harried modern world, Os Guinness calls us to consequential living, reorienting our notion of history not as cyclical nor as meaningless, but as linear and purposeful.

The Confluence of Wisdom Along the Silk Road

For centuries along the vibrant cultural corridor of the Silk Road of Central Asia, philosophers and thinkers from Hellenic, Chinese and Indian traditions debated existential issues. Out of this stimulating milieu, the iconic poet-mathematician Omar Khayyam emerged in the eleventh century, advancing a transformative intercultural philosophy in his poetic work, the Rubaiyat. Vaziri traces the themes of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat back to the highly influential philosophical traditions of the Silk Road and uncovers fascinating parallels in original works by Heraclitus, Zhuangzi (Daoism), Nagarjuna (Mahayana Buddhism), and the Upanishads. In addition, Vaziri’s elegant translation and unique classification of the verses of the Rubaiyat reveal an existential roadmap laid out by Khayyam. In this pioneering volume, Vaziri not only fuses the multiple disciplines of literature, philosophy, culture, history and medicine but also takes the approach of the Rubaiyat to a new level, presenting it as a source of wisdom therapy that stands the test of time in the face of doubt and confusion, offering a platform for self-restoration.

Carpe diem – 'eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die!' – is a prominent motif throughout ancient literature and beyond. This is the first book-length examination of its significance and demonstrates that close analysis can make a key contribution to a question that is central to literary studies in and beyond Classics: how can poetry give us the almost magical impression that something is happening here and now? In attempting an answer, Robert Rohland gives equal attention to Greek and Latin texts, as he offers new interpretations of well-known poems from Horace and tackles understudied epigrams. Pairing close readings of ancient texts along with interpretations of other forms of cultural production such as gems, cups, calendars, monuments, and Roman wine labels, this interdisciplinary study transforms our understanding of the motif of carpe diem.

I am fed up with people making the world more complicated than it really is. Egos, me-first mentalities, and unrealistic expectations all get in the way of our success. We make things complicated because we want the attention gained from pretending to be experts. We put superficial standards on everything we do. Why? Because we thrive off of the "high road" mentality. Where have all these complications we added to our lives and our businesses gotten us? We have a failing economy, failing social structure, thousands of unprepared young people, and lives so hectic that we all die by the age of 65 from stress-induced heart attacks. If you ask me, I think it's time we simplify a few things. We don't need complications; we need common sense. We have justified our "standards of excellence" while forsaking the simple and natural rules provided by our own God-given common sense. We no longer recognize what is true and false. We only recognize what we believe to be true or false. We convince ourselves that life is hard, that business is complicated, and that only the very best and well educated will succeed. I see things differently. After years of studying and practicing business, I have begun to realize that those with the most success, those with the best lives we all want to emulate all have one thing in common: they have found a way to simplify what they do. Success comes from peeling away the complicated structures, ego-driven, "I'm an expert" mentality, and sophisticated expectations of how things ought to be. Success is about finding the easiest, most efficient means of accomplishing a task or goal. True success is about having the time to enjoy life, the freedom to treat others fairly, and the opportunity to make a difference in everything that we do. Common sense tells us that the shortest distance between any point is a straight line. Common sense tells us that effectiveness comes from finding the simplest way of doing something. Common sense has a lot to tell us. In fact, it can teach us everything we need to know about life, business, and success. Are you ready to learn why the finer things in life are the simplest things? Come with me as we journey to discover how simply applying some common sense to our lives can change the world.
