9780770437619This spring, more than 35 students in North Central College’s introduction to philosophy course will use Edward Slingerland’s Trying Not to Try.  The book, which blends Eastern thought and cutting-edge science to explain why we find spontaneity so elusive, will support students as they learn the tenants of philosophy.  Although the text goes on-sale in March, complimentary advanced reader copies (ARCs) are available by request here.

Author Edward Slingerland was educated at Princeton, Stanford and the University of California at Berkeley.  He currently is a Professor of Asian Studies and Canada Research Chair in Chinese Thought and Embodied Cognition at the University of British Columbia.
