Enlightenment East and West
Enlightenment East and West (September 1994)
Leonard Angel - Author

This book shows that mysticism is incomplete without scientific rationalism, and that our current social and political projects cannot be completed without assimilating the values and practices of mysticism. It discusses cross-cultural ethics, mysticism and value theory, mysticism and metaphysics, mysticism and the theory of knowledge, ethics and religion, parapsychology, patriarchy, and social and political history.

After Truth
After Truth (December 1993)
Explorations in Life Sense
Mervyn Sprung - Author

This book begins from the conviction that, in the post-Nietzschean desert of our time, people are left without any means of penetrating those great realms of worth and sense from which philosophy has withdrawn and which science ignores. Yet people are compelled by a profound need to live in a world that secures belief in human worth.

In this unusual soliloquy, the author explores how we might begin to live our way into these trackless...(Read More)
 
 
Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Eastern Thought
Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Eastern Thought (August 1993)
John R. Suler - Author

This book explores the convergence of psychoanalysis and Asian thought. It explores key theoretical issues. What role does paradox play in psychological transformations?

Isabelle Robinet - Author
Julian F. Pas - Translator
Norman J. Girardot - Translator

Taoist Meditation is the first and only scholarly study to discuss the ancient Mao-shan Taoist tradition of visionary meditation while, at the same time, helping to clarify the little understood relationship among the early Taoist classics, the Buddhist tradition, and the later Taoist religion.

The Illusion of Choice
The Illusion of Choice (December 1992)
How the Market Economy Shapes Our Destiny

"Hundreds of books discuss the market, but none with this kind of criticism. No one else has written with this deep an insight.

"Schmookler provides an extraordinarily deep, broad, and insightful analysis of the social, political, and moral consequences for our civilization of our dependence on the market system. With elegance of language, he shows how the market presents the illusion of choice while its dynamics determine our mores and our...(Read More)
 
 
Faith and Practice of Islam
Faith and Practice of Islam (November 1992)
Three Thirteenth-Century Sufi Texts
William C. Chittick - Author

"In this book, Chittick presents Islam from the inside--from the point of view of Muslims themselves. He first explains Islamic concepts to his readers and then uses these concepts, rather than Western concepts, to discuss Islam. I found the Introduction especially interesting because of the author's skill in presenting Islam to Western readers. I believe the introduction to this work could serve very well as a separate essay introducing Islam a...(Read More)
