Only Thoughts: Philosophy of Everything by Sujal Sahu is an unusual engrossing non-fiction book that takes a firms stance on the subject matter of philosophy. The book first asks a question – is philosophy the rudimentary aspect of everything that we have and do in life? Next, it tries to demystify all the suspense and air that we hold on the name of philosophy in science, humanity evolution, society and its allied parameters, knowledge, and thoughts.
The book begins with the motive of the book – in fact it challenges the ages old ways that we have been tended to follow without giving proper reasoning and logic. People have been molded to think in a specific way, to relate in a specific way, whether it makes sense or suits them is something considered second-hand. The author here in this book sharply pinpoints that blind arrangement that obstructs the true growth of an individual, organization, nation, and the world itself at a broader level.
Not much further in the book, it comes out that he loathes retards. He classified types of people, thinkers, and philosophers. He lashes out to those retards whose next level is renovated retards. The book dwells on the introspection, it screams as saying not to accept which is not real, which is not absolute and so on. The nature of the book is intriguing and will keep throwing loops of wisdom surprises at the readers.
Though the book is based on the scaffold of philosophy, deep inside it is a psychological book. Concepts of relative, nonsense, relative bullshit, retards are explained at large with lucid language. Clearly the book is for deeper minds and higher intellectuals. If you enjoy philosophical debates and often brood about the societal circle of the world, well then this book will treat you with heartwarming embrace.
The layers of knowledge grips knowledge, if you could understand one part of thinking and knowledge not necessary that you made a breakthrough and life is being lived logically and rationally. However, you must understand what you believe, what you understand, and how it affects the planet and us. The author is of the opinion that science has made tremendous advancements but retard-like thinking still persists. They are everywhere, they are like parasites, and have no fixed rules and contribution. In a nutshell it can be said that the book opens up eyes to the absolute and gives a new meaning to our rudimentary thinking pattern through various facets of life, which mostly are invisible.
S.S writes with clarity of thoughts, it looks that he studied philosophy and psychology profoundly to challenge the ossified zeitgeist of the world. The book is a fast and short read, giving proper space between topics, allowing readers to grasp the knowledge doses intermittently. Overall, a good read for serious readers.
