What we're about

We regularly meet to discuss books we read on the 3rd Sunday of the month during the evening (unless otherwise advertised). At the moment we do NOT have regular meetings during the day. We choose books through voting during meetings or by recommendation from repeat members. We read fiction and non-fiction type books alternating every other month. Please visit our FB page for more details and to interact with members. Check out our www.goodreads.com shelves to have an idea of which book we read. Our group is public, open to all, and meets regularly. New to Dubai. You are most welcome :-) Note: This group was originally called 'Dubai Mall Book Club'

Feline Philosophy: Cats and the Meaning of Life by John N. Gray

Feline Philosophy: Cats and the Meaning of Life
by John N. Gray

In Feline Philosophy, the philosopher John Gray discovers in cats a way of living that is unburdened by anxiety and self-consciousness, showing how they embody answers to the big questions of love and attachment, mortality, morality, and the Self: Montaigne's house cat, whose un-examined life may have been the one worth living; Meo, the Vietnam War survivor with an unshakable capacity for fearless joy; and Colette's Saha, the feline heroine of her subversive short story The Cat, a parable about the pitfalls of human jealousy.

Exploring the nature of cats, and what we can learn from it, Gray offers a profound, thought-provoking meditation on the follies of human exceptionalism and our fundamentally vulnerable and lonely condition. He charts a path toward a life without illusions and delusions, revealing how we can endure both crisis and transformation, and adapt to a changed scene, as cats have always done.
