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)

Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis
Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis (December 1993)
Daniel Chapelle - Author

This book presents a reading of the Nietzschean thought of the eternal return of all things and relates it to Freud's psychoanalysis of the repetition compulsion. Nietzsche's eternal return and Freud's repetition compulsion have never before been so seriously compared. The manner in which this study is executed is drastically different from usual Nietzsche scholarship and Freud studies. Chapelle works with his material until it acquires archetypa...(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.

The Ha...(Read More)
 
 
Becoming an Agent
Becoming an Agent (December 1993)
Patterns and Dynamics for Shaping Your Life
Larry Cochran - Author
Joan Laub - Author

This book is about individuals who have made dramatic changes in their lives. In the beginning, these people were living as patients or victims of circumstance. In the end, they were living as agents, free to shape the courses of their lives, to choose, set goals, plan--to make things happen, rather than to experience life as events happening to them.

The authors describe what is involved in such remarkable transformations. They identify a...(Read More)
 
 
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)
 
 
Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Eastern Thought
Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Eastern Thought (August 1993)

How can the oriental emphasis on attaining "no-self" be reconciled with the western emphasis on achieving an integrated self? The book also inquires into pragmatic questions concerning the nature of psychological change and the practice of psychotherapy. The Taoist I Ching...(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)
