Identification and Character
Identification and Character (November 1994)
A Book on Psychological Development
Howard Kamler - Author

This book tells the reader all about psychological identification, the single most important process for becoming, maintaining, or changing who we are as characters. The book's emphasis, though, is decidedly on identification's role in our becoming who we are. It is one thing for people to have an image of who they are or of who they would like to be, it is quite another for them to actually become that image. Through genuinely identifying...(Read More)
 
 
Changing the Self
Changing the Self (October 1994)
Philosophies, Techniques, and Experiences
Thomas M. Brinthaupt - Editor
Richard P. Lipka - Editor

“This book represents an interesting effort to examine the concept of self from a variety of different disciplinary and professional perspectives and to bring together in a single work some of the obviously rich diversity in thinking that this concept has attracted.

“The topic is very significant, especially at a time when individuals in our society are only beginning to see some of the results of preoccupation of ...(Read More)
 
 
The Self on the Shelf
The Self on the Shelf (August 1994)
Recovery Books and the Good Life
Gary Greenberg - Author

"It provides a new and thought-provoking view of a contemporary phenomenon that many of us have become familiar with: the proliferation of popular self-help books on codependency. In a sense it addresses one of the more central concerns of our age: who are we? What does it mean these days to be a good person? The author sets out deliberately to give us a reading, even a diagnosis, of our contemporary culture. I would buy it!" -- Martin J. Packer,...(Read More)
 
 
Imagination and Ethical Ideals
Imagination and Ethical Ideals (August 1994)
Prospects for a Unified Philosophical and Psychological Understanding
Nathan L. Tierney - Author

"Tierney gives us an account of moral ideals that is philosophically sophisticated, psychologically realistic, and sensitive to our nature as imaginative moral creatures. Moral philosophy is desperately in need of such an account, if it is going to address the needs and motivations of actual human beings. With brevity, subtlety, and deep insight, Tierney shows us what is unsatisfactory about a morality grounded on universal rules and based on a noti...(Read More)
 
 
Transpersonal Psychology in Psychoanalytic Perspective
Transpersonal Psychology in Psychoanalytic Perspective (July 1994)
Michael Washburn - Author

"The author has an original theory of human development and self-actualization first expressed in outline form in his Ego and the Dynamic Ground and in this book presented in its fully developed and mature form. It is now more impressive for the range of materials it integrates, for the clearness of its thought, and for the way it brings into unity Freudian thought and the highest experiences of the great mystics of both West and East." -- H...(Read More)
 
 
Dual Allegiance
Dual Allegiance (June 1994)
Freud as a Modern Jew
Moshe Gresser - Author

"Gresser weaves an immense amount of specific, detailed information into a fascinating argument that is of great interest to anyone interested in Freud as a person and not just as a thinker. In doing so, the book adds another dimension to the understanding of Freud's connection with Judaism. It pulls together a number of contributory elements in Freud's experience of his own Jewishness and articulates them particularly in connection with his views...(Read More)

"An enormously impressive, profound, and important book." -- Ken Wilber

"An overwhelmingly valuable book." -- Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

The links between madness, creative genius, and spiritual experiences have tantalized philosophers and scientists for centuries. In Healing the Split, John Nelson brings the lofty ideas of transpersonal psychology down to earth so they c...(Read More)
 
 
The Harmony of the Soul
The Harmony of the Soul (December 1993)
Mental Health and Moral Virtue Reconsidered
Neal O. Weiner - Author

"Neal Weiner's Harmony of the Soul is a bold and original contribution to the literature on the philosophy of psychology. Its controversial and thought-provoking arguments are likely to force a re-examination of our views in many areas, from Greek philosophy through modern psychoanalysis." --Griswold, Boston University

"A truly great work, and one that has had an incalculable impact upon me." -- Henry B. Veatch

The Ha...(Read More)

The Dream and the Text
The Dream and the Text (July 1993)
Essays on Literature and Language
Carol Schreier Rupprecht - Editor

"The book offers wonderful and important commentary about the interface between dreams and texts of various sorts, about how they can inform each other, and about mutual shaping of dreams and culture." -- Johanna M. King, California State University, Chico

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)
