Spirituality, Diversion, and Decadence

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)

This book represents the first wide-scale presentation and interpretation of pre-kabbalistic, Jewish mysticism. This is the Hekhalot or Merkavah mysticism.

Religion and Human Wholeness
Maurice Friedman - Author

"Wisdom is a tradition of knowing that has fallen out of favor in recent decades. Piaget, among others, has called for its return. Judaism has never lost touch with this tradition and Friedman is a good exemplar. The book is most readable and stimulating. It takes a strong position rooted in Judaism and integrates a breadth of exemplification from other religions and from literature." -- Harold Coward

Drawing on almost half a century of i...(Read More)
Freud on Sublimation
Freud on Sublimation (September 1992)
Volney P. Gay - Author

"One of the most common criticisms of Freud is that his theory cannot satisfactorily account for religion or artistic creativity. Gay's revision of Freud's theory using Gibson's theory of perception allows the Freudian concept of sublimation to function in a positive way that squares with artistic creativity, religion, and common experience. Gay has made a significant contribution to psychoanalytic theory and to the understanding of human creativi...(Read More)
