Metaphors of Interrelatedness
Metaphors of Interrelatedness (October 1992)
Toward a Systems Theory of Psychology
Linda E. Olds - Author

"In an era of ever increasing specialization, both within psychology and between psychology and other 'fields,' this book opens the doors and windows and lets in fresh air. It is a courageous inquiry into knowing in the broadest sense, and a defense of the necessity of this broadest sense if we are to have real progress. If there is hope for the academy to recapture a sense of intellectual mission, instead of functioning as a holding company for n...(Read More)

Essays on Buddhism and Nonviolence
Kenneth Kraft - Editor

Old Tales and New Truths
Old Tales and New Truths (February 1992)
Charting the Bright-Shadow World
James Roy King - Author

"I like the basic thesis--that traditional narratives can be used, rhetorically, by their tellers as conceptual blockbreakers rather than as reinforcers of what is. This point is very well, even enchantingly, made. King adds a new dimension and sophistication to the study of folk narratives cross culturally. -- Sabra J. Webber, The Ohio State University.

This guidebook to the Bright-Shadow World develops three closely related issues. The f...(Read More)

A Transpersonal Theory of Human Development
Michael Washburn - Author

"I am particularly struck by the power of his argument against the major alternative view, that of Ken Wilber." -- Richard D. Mann, University of Michigan

"I find it a psychologically more pertinent synthesis of the claims, experiences, and insights in the field of transpersonal development than Wilber's paradigm. It is neater, more parsimonious, and more powerful."
-- James N. Mosel, George Washington University

Gandhi and Non-Violence
Gandhi and Non-Violence (October 1986)
William Borman - Author

“The issues of South Africa and the nuclear bomb and theologies of liberation have for some time spotlighted the question of violence and non-violence. The strength or weakness of Gandhian non-violence often comes up in discussions on the subject. This manuscript analyzes Gandhian non-violence. The analysis is able, thorough and—this is what I most respond to—marked both by rigorous Western-style scrutiny and a familiarity wi...(Read More)
