Written expressly for high school and college students, this reference insightfully introduces ten widely studied works of philosophical literature. An introductory chapter considers such issues as the nature of philosophical literature, and the volume closes with a selected, general bibliography. Despite Plato's banning of poets from the ideal community, some works of philosophy also stand as significant contributions to literature, and some works of literature have profoundly influenced philosophy. Such works have the power to challenge, provoke, and move the reader, and they upset complacent assumptions and demand new thinking.
They also draw on the resources of language and literature to explore enduring issues.

Nothing is solved, and they leave feeling uncomfortable with each other and their friendship. With Kathryn out of town at her mothers, Hobbes makes rather halfhearted arrangements for an assignation with Estelle, a woman he has met at a party.

Hobbes bounces from the Go Club, to a bar, to Estelles apartment where, during an attempted seduction, he nds himself unable to achieve an erection. He leaves and feels tortured by the cool person, who he now feels he is becoming. More importantly, in this chapter, Holmes denes cool as the antithesis of beat, continuing to rene the connection between Stofskys passionate madness and Hobbess disassociation. When the music is cool, its pleasant, somewhat meditative and without tension.
Everything before, you see just last year, was crazy frantic gone, now everyone is acting cool, unemotional, withdrawn. What can one designate the moment that comes after the end after all? I suppose its complete passivity, oblivion. Even more than just creating a denition and understanding of cool, Hobbes feels himself becoming cool rather than beat.
He feels so disconnected from everyone that even surrounding himself with people only proves to reinforce his emotional withdrawal. Part 2 ends with the reinforcement of the feeling of isolation and the continued dissolution of the Hobbes marriage.

Kathryn, Hobbes, and Ketcham wander out into the night for a drink. The interpersonal conict continues to grow within the group of friends. They go to Biancas apartment where she tells them Christine the young married woman Pasternak has been secretly seeing since the start of the book is pregnant and in therapy and that all these troubles should be blamed on Pasternak. Bianca tells Kathryn that she needs to cultivate Hobbes, and that he is holding everything emotionally inside.
Offended, Kathryn leaves to go home where she nds and reads the love letters Hobbes writes to Liza. Immediately, she calls Hobbes at the party to tell him that she is leaving him.
Hobbes lies to the others saying he needs cigarettes and runs home to his wife. Its an awkward, uncomfortable scene. For Hobbes, these letters have been merely therapeutic rather than seductive. Because he is emotionally bottled up and unable to express himself to others, he uses these letters, which were never sent or meant to be sent, to try to stop himself from becoming cool. Kathryn however, because she herself has been unfaithful, assumes that Hobbes is writing these letters with the intention of sending them and thus is being unfaithful as well.
What is hell?
I maintain that is the suffering of being unable to love. The priest is reminding his followers that simply because they have assumed a monastic life does not imply that they are more blessed than other people. He also reminds his listeners that each man is responsible for every other man and that he is responsible to all men for all and everything, for all human sins, national and individual. The elders ideas can be tested only in the midst of busy society.
Holmes uses this quote to reinforce the danger of the continuance of Hobbes transformation to the cool man from the beat man, and Kathryns recognition of that switchalthough she describes it in terms of Hobbes hiding his internal emotional life. The Brothers Karamazov is written on two levels: on the surface it is the story of a patricide in which all the murdered mans sons share varying degrees of complicity, but, more importantly, to the purposes of Go, it is a spiritual drama of the moral struggles between faith, doubt, reason, and free will.
Hobbes rushes home from the party to confront Kathryn. In contrast to the cold conversation they had when Kathryn admitted her indelity, now they have a very conventional marital spat. At rst Kathryns fury seems to be over what she perceives as Hobbes straying from her; however, her anger seems to be an expression of her own guilt, as well as her frustration at their failure to sustain their relationship.
Fighting themselves into exhaustion, they decide to go to sleep, but rst, have sex as another failed attempt at connecting. Stofsky leaves Biancas apartment, angry about Hobbess abrupt exit from the party. He runs into Ancke, who is crumpled in a doorway. He brings Ancke into his apartment, but is horried at the junkies condition of narcotic withdrawal. Stofsky begins a long jumble of words saying that he thinks that after his vision or visitation that everyone is fearful of him.
Ancke tells him that people judge, not because of what they think of others, but because of what they think of themselves. He seems to be reinforcing the situation in which Hobbes nds himself. That night, Stofsky has a dream in which he talks to God. Chapter 3 of part 3 switches back to the story of Hobbes. The editor to whom Hobbes has given his book takes Hobbes out to lunch to tell him thanks, but no thanks, his company cannot use Hobbess book.
Hobbes walks, emotionally crushed, back to the apartment. Pasternak calls and they agree to meet.

Pasternak has returned from his trip through the American West with Hart and is back in town a description of the same journey that. Kerouac would immortalize in On the Road. Hart, meanwhile, has stayed in San Francisco. Pasternak tells him that his book in reality, Kerouacs The Town and the City has been sold. Once again, something that Hobbes wants badly has been snatched from him and given to Pasternak. Upset about his rejection, Hobbes walks to Stofskys. Since Stofsky has brought Ancke home, the junkie has begun to take over Stofskys apartment, unnerving Stofsky.
To make matters worse, two criminals, Little Rock and Winnie, begin to frequent Stofskys apartment to visit Ancke.

Hobbes drops by, recognizes the criminals as part of the cool crowd from the jazz club, the Go Hole, and is peeved that they are there. Hobbes sees them as being without a future, but Stofsky, ever compassionate to all living things, makes excuses for them. In a moment of supreme cynicism and self-loathing, Agatson begins planning a party to celebrate what he is calling his Last Birthday.
Likewise, Hobbes also seems to be falling apart. Hobbes and Pasternak decide to head to Agatsons, but, after being there for a short time, Hobbes, Pasternak, May, and Agastson decide to walk over to Biancas. Agatson commits casual vandalism on the way. Agatson, like Hart, seems to be completely nihilistic. Unlike Hart though, Agatson does it to keep from connecting with others, as opposed to Harts attempts to experience life in a more raw way.
While there, they get a call telling them that Stofsky, Ancke, Little Rock, and Winnie have been arrested.
