On Love, Family, and the State

(Philosophical-sociological Essay)


New Edition and Translation is in progress and will be available soon


The problems of love, family and state are topics that are widely discussed both in the West and in Russia. This essay, however, differs from all previous research work in that Alex Battler elevated the well-known words “love,” “family” and “marriage” to the level of concepts. This enabled the author to correlate them to the conception of force and progress he had substantiated in the book Dialectics of Force: Ontóbia, and ultimately to define the regular connection between the destruction of marriage and the collapse of state within the context of the law of entropy growth, or “the law of death.”

The theoretical philosophical part of the work is supplemented by sociological data that show the comparative picture of the family and marriage situation in the West and in Russia.

Despite the seriousness of its topics, the work is written in the genre of a publicistic essay, i.e. in a language that makes the text accessible to a wide circle of readers interested in the aforementioned problems.

 






The World Without Russia

(Chinese Version)



The book dispels the common myth about Russia as a superpower. Alex Battler draws readers' attention to numerous historic themes that put the country's potential in direct conflict with its stated foreign policy objectives.

The authors views are entirely his own and are, on most occasions, different from those commonly accepted.

for Kindle


In this book, for the first time in world scientific literature, the category of Force is presented as an attribute of matter alongside motion, space, and time. This has enabled the author to develop a different approach to the Big Bang, to give a new formulation of the border between life and the inorganic world, and to offer his own interpretation in the disputes on the mind–body problem. The category of Ontological Force formulated by the author has allowed him to develop a new definition of the concept of Progress, which creates a methodological basis for fruitful research in the fields of the social sciences and international relations.

This book is intended for instructors and students of philosophy and the natural sciences as well as for all those interested in the problems of the universe, life, and man.
