St. Cloud State University Student Explores Opportunites in Self-Publishing

Authors come from all walks of life. Some are children, some are parents, some are retired, while some are at the height of their careers. The inspiration to write a book usually sparks from life experience.

Cognitive Science and H. Rationalism by Thierry P. AmisiThierry P. Amisi is a student. Not only is he a student of life, but he’s a student in life. What’s special about Thierry? He published his first book while attending St. Cloud State University. According to an article written by  University Chronicle (the college’s newspaper), it was in class that his idea for Cognitive Science and H. Rationalism was born. Talk about making the most of life experience!

Thierry and others like them offer up life’s pudding as proof that anyone in any circumstance can write a book – as long as you have focus and determination.

So what is his book about? We think he sums it up rather well…

“New insights come last. Research and succinct brainstorming are second. The first of all is curiosity. Is there anything that is as pleasant as the state of being curious?

A concise contrast between the meaning of a reflection and the one of a concept is: every concept is a reflection, but not every reflection is a concept…”

It’s about the rationale of the human mind in all of its intricacies.
