Rainstorm of Tomorrow: The Ever-Flowing Banquet of Philosophy dexterously weaves the storied philosophical themes of truth, ethics, and aesthetics together with the theories of relativity, quantum mechanics, neuroscience, epigenetics, social Darwinism, utilitarianism, evolutionary psychology, and modern art—from the soberest rationality to the wildest conjecture—to generat ...more

Philosophers have grappled with metaphysical and ontological questions for centuries, and such questions have become a topic for debate in contemporary thinking. Rainstorm of Tomorrow addresses some of these questions that weren’t answered as we hold to our “position as human beings,” in the sense that philosophy welcomes questions but evades answers. The author elucidates refreshing insights on some of philosophy’s most vexing questions and critiques them by highlighting the mind-body debate an ...more

The guy reviewed his own book. (5 stars; no surprise there) He hired a guy on LinkedIn to write another review on another site.
These Shanghai princelings think they can buy their way through life. Unfortunately, philosophy isn't interested in your vacation lists, your high school essays, or hopes for the future.
The kid spent money on this book. Look forward to some terrible poetry very soon.

“Rainstorm of Tomorrow: The Ever-Flowing Banquet of Philosophy,” by Renyuan Dong, puts a new face on philosophy. Stephen Hawking once declared philosophy dead, but all it needed was a modern approach. This author illuminates three ideas: Truth, Ethics, and Aesthetics, in a way that gives tired philosophy a face-lift, by integrating today’s science, psychology, and behavior into the equation. Renyuan Dong covers complex themes that we’ve all thought about but sometimes don’t know how to understan ...more

𝑅𝑎𝑖𝑛𝑠𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑚 𝑜𝑓 𝑇𝑜𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑟𝑜𝑤 is a sound refutation of Stephen Hawking’s declaration that “philosophy is dead”: as philosophers have not kept up with science, their art is dated. This work, however, casts light on philosophical questions that are ultimately beyond the reach of science – the type of questions that can be addressed but not answered so long as we hold to our position of human beings. That being said, philosophy remains one of the most frustrating disciplines in that it welcomes questions b ...more

Truth, ethics, and aesthetics are cliché topics? One would probably need to think again after reading 𝑅𝑎𝑖𝑛𝑠𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑚 𝑜𝑓 𝑇𝑜𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑟𝑜𝑤 - a polymathic book ablating disciplinary and cultural boundaries.
This color-printing book eclectically chooses source material for storied philosophical themes and forestalls any tendencies toward punctilio: Eastern folktale, Japanese manga, Buddhist sutras, modern art and Western dystopian novels are exquisitely organized in forms of table, formulas, figure, etc., to ush
