The phrase "the best of all possible worlds" (French: le meilleur des mondes possibles; German: Die beste aller möglichen Welten) was coined by the German polymath Gottfried Leibniz in his 1710 work Essais de Théodicée sur la bonté de Dieu, la liberté de l'homme et l'origine du mal (Essays of Theodicy on the Goodness of God, the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil)
Interestingly, both album sleeves featured quotes from poet Sean O’Brien. Hallam and Howard left to form the Planet Wilson in 1987, with drummer Jonah Oxburrow (ex-That Noble Porpoise), and released the albums In The Best Of All Possible Worlds and Not Drowning But Waving. Hallam now runs his own studio in Hull, while Holmes released a solo album in 1989.
With the planet Sadira destroyed, the few remaining Sadiri-mainly men-seek refuge on Cygnus Beta, a veritable melting pot of refugees, races, and cultures. Their journey takes them far and wide into different places and cultures, all of which have some relation to the now lost Sadira. I loved Karen Lord’s debut Redemption in Indigo and had been highly anticipating The Best of All Possible Worlds. The two books could not be more different but I was not disappointed in the least. In fact, I haven’t loved a book this much in a while. Definitions are hard but one could definitely pinpoint The Best of All Possible Worlds as an Anthropological Science Fiction Romance.
The Planet Wilson were an indie rock band from Hull, that came from the breakup of the Red Guitars. They were signed to Virgin Records and released two albums in the late 1980s. In 1988 they released the album In the Best of All Possible Worlds (on Virgin), on which, according to Trouser Press, "the three bandmembers occasionally seem to be playing different songs". In 1989 Not Drowning but Waving (on Records of Achievement) was released Hallam later ran his own recording studio in Hull.
Photo by Tyler Merbler CC BY . Candide is the first and most amusing example of the powerlessness of positive thinking. In this 18th century novel by Voltaire, the naïf Candide suffers one misfortunate after another – kidnapping, torture, earthquake. Still he adheres to the philosophy of his mentor, Dr. Pangloss, who insists that all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds. Never has there been such a mismatch between philosophy and facts on the ground
Ever since Voltaire lampooned this answer to the problem of suffering in his novel Candide, Leibniz’s argument has been considered far less useful than his other great feat, the co-discovery of calculus.
