Book Summary:

Essential reading for anyone seeking to understand their own mind and to find a spiritual path that is compatible with science As an impressionable young student, Susan Blackmore had an intense, dramatic and life-changing experience, seeming to leave her body and travel the world. With no rational explanation for her out-of-body experience (OBE) she turned to astral projection and the paranormal, but soon despaired of finding answers. Decades later, a Swiss neurosurgeon accidentally discovered the spot in the brain that can induce OBEs and everything changed; this crucial spot is part of the brain's self-system and when disturbed so is our experience of self. Blackmore leaped back into OBE research and at last began to unravel what had happened to her. Seeing Myself describes her long quest for answers through spirituality, religion, drugs, meditation, philosophy and neuroscience. Anyone can have an OBE, indeed 15 per cent of us have. Even more have experienced sleep paralysis, lucid dreaming and the creepy sense of an invisible presence. At last, with the advent of brain stimulation, fMRI scanning and virtual reality, all these phenomena are beginning to make sense. Long relegated to the very fringes of research, the new science of out-of-body experiences is now contributing to our understanding of consciousness and our very selves.

Book Summary:

The following essay is intentionally written from several different perspectives. It is imagined as a report on a series of experiments conducted by myself on my own body, in order to discover what it feels like to be me. In a manner akin to S.N. Goenka’s description of the egoic mind this essay attempts also to draw illusionary versions of the writers self to obstruct the readers gaze. At times it is the voice of the artist, or that of their organs which have been given an improbable voice. Sometimes the author writes about the artists experiences, and other times, such as this one, the voice you hear is that of the student writing while feeling their thoughts examined. The footnotes in this essay serve to expand on particular ideas or to acknowledge ideas that are not my own. Mainly however they are intended to provide a fourth identity, myself as reader. They are thoughts generated while reading my own thoughts. These fictional witness accounts are drawn from heavily throughout the essay with the intent to present a tangled internal dialogue at some points whimsical and irreverent, at others more profound and intriguing. Ultimately, the intention is to echo the work by further exploring the multiple perspectives of the self. To point at the kaleidoscope of identities that sprout into being in the vacuum between the observers gaze and the body of the observed. Understanding that ultimately at their core all stem from one inseparable unity, and are a complete fiction. The various narratives are also intended to allow the student a greater scope to describe ideas arising from physical experimentation and research. It should also provide an oversight of the experiments actually being tried out in the process. Thus a private insight is somewhat implausibly given to the sense of 'being' various parts of the body. These are provided by the artist who attempts to be fully aware and write about the feeling. Initially these accounts are simply based on sensations. When the mind is examined in the later part of the essay, these observations allow the artist to give voice to experiences, rather than simply theoretical notions. The many facets of the student are intended to slowly merge toward each other, until the point at which the fourth walls are broken. In the end the artist and author become aware of each others existence.

Book Summary:

Many people, instead of living out their true purpose, live their lives feeling lost, confused, helpless, oppressed and depressed, simply because they were never free to discover their true purpose. Most times, such tragedy stems from lack of knowing or understanding the manual that gives us godly direction and counsel. We must understand that without the divine help of our Creator, we are unable to accomplish this mission. This book is for those who struggle with doing God’s word. Whether you are a born-again Christian or one who desires to be, you will find this book to be a helpful tool in overcoming those struggles that oftentimes hold us in bondage to sin. Byfield’s desire is to see God’s people be free from the bondage of their fears induced by the lies and deception of the enemy. She wants everyone to be empowered by faith in the truth of God’s holy Word. Through her own experiences of God, and after coming face to face with the realities of the truth of his Word, evangelist Jennifer P. Byfield came to realize the true purpose of her existence. You will never be able to accomplish your true purpose in this life until you understand where you came from and where you are going. Your true purpose lived is not only for glory now but also for unseen glory to come. No matter how accomplished or successful you may feel or think you are, true success and accomplishment is obtained only when we carry out the mission of the one who sent us here.

Book Summary:

Throughout American history, short story writers have entertained us by creating brief narratives - short takes, we might call them - of the people and places that have become our national heritage. Alan Cheuse, the writer whose voice is familiar to all who listen to NPR, has put together a new variety of anthology, one that starts as a collection of wonderful literature but, by means of Cheuse's selection and commentary, becomes a social history of our nation. Organized chronologically, the anthology has been edited so that each story contributes to building a picture of America from the earliest stories in the 19th century all the way to World War I. The Greatest Early American Short Stories: People and Places that Came Before Us features stories by Washington Irving, Louisa May Alcott, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry James, Edith Wharton, Theodore Dreiser, Willa Cather, and more.

Book Summary:

This unusually innovative book treats reflexivity, not as a philosophical conundrum, but as a practical issue that arises in the course of scholarly research and argument. In order to demonstrate the concrete and consequential nature of reflexivity, Malcolm Ashmore concentrates on an area in which reflexive "problems" are acute: the sociology of scientific knowledge. At the forefront of recent radical changes in our understanding of science, this increasingly influential mode of analysis specializes in rigorous deconstructions of the research practices and textual products of the scientific enterprise. Through a series of detailed examinations of the practices and products of the sociology of scientific knowledge, Ashmore turns its own claims and findings back onto itself and opens up a whole new era of exploration beyond the common fear of reflexive self-destruction.

Book Summary:

Can you be a self on your own or only together with others? Is selfhood a built-in feature of experience or rather socially constructed? How do we at all come to understand others? Does empathy amount to and allow for a distinct experiential acquaintance with others, and if so, what does that tell us about the nature of selfhood and social cognition? Does a strong emphasis on the first-personal character of consciousness prohibit a satisfactory account of intersubjectivity or is the former rather a necessary requirement for the latter? Engaging with debates and findings in classical phenomenology, in philosophy of mind and in various empirical disciplines, Dan Zahavi's new book Self and Other offers answers to these questions. Discussing such diverse topics as self-consciousness, phenomenal externalism, mindless coping, mirror self-recognition, autism, theory of mind, embodied simulation, joint attention, shame, time-consciousness, embodiment, narrativity, self-disorders, expressivity and Buddhist no-self accounts, Zahavi argues that any theory of consciousness that wishes to take the subjective dimension of our experiential life serious must endorse a minimalist notion of self. At the same time, however, he also contends that an adequate account of the self has to recognize its multifaceted character, and that various complementary accounts must be integrated, if we are to do justice to its complexity. Thus, while arguing that the most fundamental level of selfhood is not socially constructed and not constitutively dependent upon others, Zahavi also acknowledges that there are dimensions of the self and types of self-experience that are other-mediated. The final part of the book exemplifies this claim through a close analysis of shame.

Book Summary:

Do you have the courage to explore yourself with total honesty; to accept yourself, soul through bone; to ignore conventional expectations and be true to your inner Self, no matter what?In her debut memoir, Running Into Myself, Thea Euryphaessa revealed how a seemingly random impulse to sign her unfit, overweight body onto three marathons helped her to overcome depression and abandon the well-worn road of the mundane 9-to-5 for the rockier path of the more meaningful unknown.Now, Growing into MySelf follows her as she comes full circle in her transformational Hero’s Journey, submitting to the deeper, darker realm of soul, sex, and an uncertain relationship, framed by a series of five Tantra workshops that Thea undertakes over the course of eighteen months.Continuing to explore myth, archetypes, dreams, and depth psychology, Thea learns to surrender to the body’s wisdom while also embracing intellect in her quest to become sexually confident and psychologically whole—in short, a woman of substance.

Book Summary:

Daniel Mattson once believed he was gay. Raised in a Christian family, and aware of attractions to other boys at age six, Mattson's life was marked by constant turmoil between his faith in God and his sexual attractions. Finding the conflict between his sexual desires and the teachings of his church too great, he assumed he was gay, turned his back on God, and began a relationship with another man. Yet freedom and happiness remained elusive until he discovered Christ and his true identity. In this frank memoir, Mattson chronicles his journey to and from a gay identity, finding peace in his true identity, as a man, made in the image and likeness of God. Part autobiography, part philosophy of life, and part a practical guide in living chastely, the book draws lessons from Mattson's search for inner freedom and integrity, sharing wisdom from his failures and successes. His lifelong search for happiness and peace comes full circle in his realization that, above all else, what is true about him is that he is a beloved son of God, loved into existence by God, created for happiness in this life and the next. Mattson's book is for anyone who has ever wondered who he is, why he is here, and, in the face of suffering, where to find joy, happiness, and the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Book Summary:

The gripping tale of one man’s survival in the wilderness. On the night of April 9, 1997, Warren Macdonald took his final step as a "complete" human being. A fit and experienced hiker, Macdonald had set out with a new Dutch companion to make the grueling climb to the top of Australia’s spectacular Mount Bowen. They lost their way after a full day on the trail and pitched camp beside a narrow creek. Shortly after dusk, as he scrambled up an embankment away from the creek in the darkness, Macdonald was horrified to hear a loud crack. A second later he was lying in the creek bed, both his legs pinned by a giant boulder. What had begun as a two-day adventure had suddenly turned into a nightmare. Try as they might, the two men could not budge the massive piece of granite. There was nothing for it: Macdonald’s companion would have to hike out at dawn and make a solitary, perilous descent—a journey of at least eight hours—to get help. A gifted storyteller, Macdonald captures the terror and high drama of his hours alone in the wilderness, but he also writes eloquently about his life both before and after the accident.

Book Summary:

Santa Fe, the City Different, has deeply excited visitors for over a hundred years with its crystal blue skies, Blood of Christ Mountains, pure dry air, old adobe charm, and beautiful light. But this high-desert State capital and artists haven may also be a Land of Lighta premier landscape of multiple sacred sites and heightened spiritual charge.

Book Summary:

PREFACE This volume is a sequel to yet independent of our Paranoia: A Study in Diagnosis, Reidel, Dordrecht and Boston, 1976. Whereas our first book centered on diagnosis, this centers on treatment. In our first volume, all discussions of nosology (theory of illness) and of treatment was ancillary to our discussion of diagnosis; similarly all discussion of this volume dealing with nosology - there is very little on diagnosis here - is ancillary to our discussion of psychotherapy. It is still our profoundest conviction that to speak of treatment without diagnosis is meaningless, if not irresponsible, since otherwise one does not know what one is talking about. Hence, our present study, though it centers on theories of treatment, links psychotherapy with psychopathology. It is the rationale of psychotherapy which is of importance, and the rationale dwells in this link. We wish our present study to be self-contained and understood by readers who are not familiar with our first book - or with any specific literature. Our discussion of medicine in general, meaning the rationale of therapy in general, helps the uninitiated reader, as well as the initiated, we hope: it certainly has helped us. We did not see how else can we study a branch of medicine; we felt the need for some idea of how medicine is supposed to work.
