Un Ovium Mori is a short contemporary literary book by Quinten Serna. Through philosophical tangents rooted in the idea of self, Serna delves into the various aspects of life and tries to showcase the subtle variances between the lines of humanitarianism and cynicism. People ascribe higher validation to their day-to-day existence to give themselves purpose. Serna asks some interesting questions such as does helping people come from a deep-seated need to bring personal change into the lives of others or because of a shallow view of altruism to feel sufficient and superior? Is blissful ignorance a blessing in disguise, or is it better to champion the needs of those who are voiceless? The author encourages readers to live by one's own measure, to be complexly secure in their ego while retaining their humbleness.
If you're looking for some compelling philosophical discourse, Un Ovium Mori is the perfect book for you. Quinten Serna's eloquent prose and delivery make the narrative a breeze to go through as he explores the human condition through philosophical musings that are thematically rich and narratively poignant. There are some truly unique and enlightening insights that leave you with a lot to ponder about long after you've finished reading the book. According to the author, satisfaction derived from self-indulgence is the machination of the ego, whose primary goal is to seek approval from others. He also holds the view that civil displeasure is the paragon of freedom. Overall, I'm glad that I read Un Ovium Mori. It certainly makes you introspect. Highly recommended.
