Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space
Emotion, Depth, and Flesh: A Study of Sensitive Space (October 1993)
Reflections on Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy of Embodiment
Suzanne L. Cataldi - Author

"After a decade or two of dominance by behaviorist thinkers, followed by another decade or two of dominance by cognitive theorists, the time is ripe for study of the emotions (and affections in general) to assume center stage. Much evidence indicates that this is indeed happening and Cataldi's work appears just in time. She is a gifted thinker, with tremendous focus and uncanny writing skills." -- Robert Marrone, California State University, Sacra...(Read More)

Yasuo Yuasa - Author
Shigenori Nagatomo - Translator

Women and Solitude

The Center of the Web examines the complexities of how solitude is perceived by women.

The voices in the book come from varied vantage points, illuminating women's perspectives of solitude with regard to class, culture, race, and sexual identity. Some essay...(Read More)

This book partakes of a long tradition of dream interpretation, but, at the same time, is unique in its cross-cultural and interdisciplinary methods and in its mix of theoretical and analyt...(Read More)
 
 
Time and Psychological Explanation
Time and Psychological Explanation (July 1993)
Brent D. Slife - Author

"This is a top-notch, scholarly work. I believe that Slife took a very difficult, complex topic and brought considerable understanding to it for the reader. Books of this type raise the level of sophistication in psychology." -- Joseph F. Rychlak, Loyola University

Psychology has been captured by an assumption that is almost totally unrecognized. This assumption--the linearity of time--unduly restricts theory and therapy, yet this restrict...(Read More)
