A number of high-school students may wish to work as a Thumos Mentor, a Thumos Sales Representative, or Thumos Master. Regardless of the position, all jobs are based on the Thumos Principles, which are explained below.
The Book of Thumos refers to the book, Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration, which was written in Providence, Rhode Island, by two coauthors, Mark Canny, a student at the University of Rhode Island, and Nickantony Quach, an Automation Engineer who lives in Providence, RI.
First published by Ri4C, LLC of Rhode Island, Thumos spells out a number of principles, known as the Thumos Principles, which explain in depth, among other things, three of the most important concepts for human life: adulthood, love, and collaboration.
In his Nobel Peace Prize 2002 Lecture, Jimmy Carter stated that he “thought often during [his] years in the White House of an admonition that [he and his classmates] received in [their] small school in Plains, Georgia, from a beloved teacher, Miss Julia Coleman. She often said: ‘We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.’ When [he] was a young boy, this same teacher also introduced [him] to Leo Tolstoy’s novel, “War and Peace.” She interpreted that powerful narrative as a reminder that the simple human attributes of goodness and truth can overcome great power. She also taught [them] that an individual is not swept along on a tide of inevitability but can influence even the greatest human events.”
Thumos Principles as expressed in The Book of Thumos may be considered those unchanging principles that allow you to “influence even the greatest human events”. With Thumos you can “adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles”.

When the organization is called humanity, the onboarding process is called The Book of Thumos.
Thumos is the onboarding for humanity. The Book of Thumos spells out the onboarding process for new members of our humanity.
