The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima
The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima (July 1993)
Apocalypse or Utopia?
Darrell J. Fasching - Author

This book addresses the problem of religion, ethics, and public policy in a global technological civilization. It attempts to do what narrative ethicists have said cannot be done--to construct a cross-cultural ethic of human dignity, human rights, and human liberation which respects the diversity of narrative traditions. It seeks to do this without succumbing to either ethical relativism or ethical absolutism.

The author confronts directly ...(Read More)
 
 
The Making of a Mystic
The Making of a Mystic (July 1993)
Seasons in the Life of Teresa of Avila
Francis L. Gross Jr. - Author
Toni Perior Gross - With

"I like the authors' clear insights into Teresa from a psychological point of view. The authors not only know about Teresa but, more significantly, 'know' her in an empathetic mode. Thus the writing is smooth, never strained, as they call upon the examples of other spiritual men and women whose lives shed light on Teresa's. Their familiarity with psychology translates into eminently readable prose." -- Mary E. Giles, California State University, ...(Read More)
 
 
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)
 
 
Ineffability
Ineffability (March 1993)
The Failure of Words in Philosophy and Religion
Ben-Ami Scharfstein - Author

"The topic is so extremely significant, yet it is one of those issues that lie so deep and are so fundamental that we rarely pause to consider them because (perhaps) they are the ground on which we stand." -- Robert Campany, Indiana University

Scharfstein describes the extraordinary powers that have been attributed to language everywhere, and then looks at ineffability as it has appeared in the thought of the great philosophical cultures: In...(Read More)
 
 
Spirituality and Human Nature
Spirituality and Human Nature (December 1992)
Donald Evans - Author

"This book has been written by a proven author and senior philosopher who knows western thought inside out, yet he sees the need for a larger conception of human nature that is open to the spiritual dimension and treats that dimension as the fundamental reality. In presenting such a view of human nature and spirituality, Evans draws deeply and insightfully from western depth psychology, Eastern meditation psychology, Christian thought, and his ...(Read More)
 
 
Spirituality, Diversion, and Decadence
Spirituality, Diversion, and Decadence (November 1992)
The Contemporary Predicament
Peter H. Van Ness - Author

"This is a more interesting and insightful approach to the topic of spiritual discipline than I have previously encountered.

"The major problem with contemporary religion (especially Western) is its lack of effective spiritual disciplines--witness the fascination with the disciplines of the East. Add to that the fact that as religion in the traditional sense decreases in popularity, spirituality increases." -- Harold Coward, University of Ca...(Read More)
 
 
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)
