review by . May 06, 2010
   This book is intended for those in the second half of their lives who are not ready to die just yet. September University is not an actual school, but more of a frame of mind or philosophy. It radically changes the idea of retirement from doing very little while waiting for the Grim reaper, to helping to create a better world for future generations. Within the next 20 years, the baby boomer generation will reach retirement age. They have plenty of demographic power to change American …

September University  Summoning Passion for an Unfinished Life  by Charles D. Hayes    Published by: Autodidactic Press 2010    This work is a philosopher's dream come true.

About this book

Wiki

September Universityis a nourishing feast of a book, replete with reasons to discover new meaning and purpose in the last chapters of your life, to welcome those years as life's most precious gift -- an opportunity to cultivate wisdom and then put it to use in the world.
---- WALTER TRUETT ANDERSON, President Emeritus, World Academy of Art and Science

September University, by leading scholar and visionary Charles Hayes, is a superb intellectual achievement by any standards. With sweeping scope and remarkable depth of knowledge across numerous disciplines, Hayes addresses the totality of the human experience along with neglected questions surrounding life, death, freedom, authenticity, and truth as he paves the way for a genuinely mature future in which citizens discover new degrees of potency and thoughtfulness. Rather than shying away from idealism, September University sets out a bold and timely blueprint for a post-consumer consciousness that is more culturally aware, media literate, and politically astute. Hayes delves with electrifying intelligence into the nature of meaning, identity, and community as he weaves together a comprehensive philosophy that enables people to transcend evolutionary baggage, social indoctrination, and illusions of limitation. September University is one of the finest books in print when it comes to the wisdom and existential bearings required to survive the current age of insanity.
---- JOHN F. SCHUMAKER, author of Happiness: Understanding...
