Spiritualism and the Foundations of C. G. Jung's Psychology
Spiritualism and the Foundations of C. G. Jung's Psychology (April 1993)
F. X. Charet - Author

Charet uncovers some of the reasons why Jung's psychology finds itself living between science and religion. He demonstrates that Jung's early life was influenced by the experiences,beliefs, and ideas that characterized Spiritualism and that arose out of the entangled relationship that existed between science and religion in the late nineteenth century. Spiritualism, following it inception in 1848, became a movement that claimed to be a scientific ...(Read More)
The Functions of Dreaming
The Functions of Dreaming (March 1993)
Alan Moffitt - Editor
Milton Kramer - Editor
Robert Hoffmann - Editor

"Understanding dreaming is essential to a comprehensive account of the nature of the mind. After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping; as the chapters of this book amply demonstrate, important mental activity goes on during sleep, and psychology cannot be complete as long as it ignores the mind asleep and dreaming. The editors have done a commendable job of bringing together a wide variety of views of the 'elephant of the dark.' I found re...(Read More)
Shattered Forms
Shattered Forms (September 1992)
Art Brut, Phantasms, Modernism
Allen S. Weiss - Author

Art Brut, also termed Outsider Art, has long been suppressed from most art historical writing. Why this rejection? The hyperbolic expressions of Romanticism and Symbolism nourished a desire for derangement and dissociation that inspired both Expressionism and Surrealism. Simulated delirium became the object of the new art -- experimental, avant-garde, modernist -- which arose from the fragmented codes, the shattered forms of everyday communicati...(Read More)

Religion, Women, and Psychoanalysis
David Crownfield - Editor

Julia Kristeva works at a crucial intersection of contemporary disciplines: psychoanalysis, linguistics, semiotics, literary criticism, feminism, postmodern philosophy, and religious studies.

Special attention is given to two related themes: the understanding of woman in relation to religion and the...(Read More)

Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe - Author
François Raffoul - Translator

"I advise you to read a book called The Title of the Letter. It is with the greatest satisfaction that I have read it. I could not encourage its distribution enough. I can say, in a way, if it is a question of reading, that I have never been read so well..." --Jacques Lacan

Philosophical Issues in the Psychology of C. G. Jung
Philosophical Issues in the Psychology of C. G. Jung (January 1991)
Marilyn Nagy - Author

"The topic is very significant and most important to the field of studies in Jungian thought wherein one endeavors to know C. G. Jung within the history of ideas and in the general context of twentieth-century culture. The author has taken on a much needed task in her efforts to situate Jung within a specific philosophical tradition." -- Marian L. Pauson

For the philosopher and psychologist this book offers the first thoroughly cross-discipl...(Read More)
Freud and Moses
Freud and Moses (October 1990)
The Long Journey Home
Emanuel Rice, M.D. - Author

"Dr. Rice's work on Freud and Moses is a thorough and pellucid work on the bedrock of ancient Judaism. It should be required reading for anyone working in the history of ancient religion and culture. It is hard to believe that at this point in our culture anyone could shed fresh light on Freud's life and his connection with ancient culture, but Dr. Rice has done so." -- Rabbi Gerson D. Cohen, Chancellor Emeritus and Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Jewi...(Read More)

This book focuses on the historical development of a key component of Jung's thought--the quest for wholeness--and shows how it functi...(Read More)
