I am very pleased at the reception that 2nd Edition of ‘Philosophy‘ has received – even though the publication is only fair for two weeks. I have got a lot of comments from readers. I am particularly delighted by the fact that the book’s message has been heard. I was happy with the first edition of the book, but the reader, who later became my friend, mentioned one thing after reading the book. ‘ I liked the style in which the book discusses with the reader, but is not edited. Not edited, I couldn’t accept that :).
My own philosophy is that if something gets bothered, something needs to be done about it. As I began to think more closely, I came to the conclusion that the book itself also needed to be updated. I also had to think of readers. At the same time, I came up with a solution that still feels good today. This 2nd Edition is even more hybrid than the previous one. By hybrid I mean that it takes into account the laws before and after the spread of streaming, but also prepares for the wider landing of the blockchain.
Now that the world has settled in the footsteps of the streaming revolution, eternal legalities of the music business are making a comeback – with the 2020’s application. Effects and technical insights no longer form the center of everything as it seemed at the time of transition. Now again, authenticity and story are flagged and promotion tactics and techniques play a supporting role, not the main thing.
From this premise, I made an edit in which the middle part of the book, pages 99-122, forms a kind of watershed. Note, if you are reading an e-book, it has a different pagination. By that I mean the book’s chapters from the Media Feed to the Functional Side of Biography. What makes this book hybrid is that it understands an old-school, contemporary development and modern technology as a whole and thus as an opportunity. The book moves back and forth through that watershed I mentioned. Such a structural solution within the book also makes the other literature in the field more palpable. It is easier to place different subject groups in their respective places and even larger entities becomes manageable.
This book is available on Amazon, Google and EBSCO for academic use.
