Imagining Psychological Life: Philosophical, Psychological & Poetic Reflections -- A Festschrift in Honor of Robert D. Romanyshyn, PH.D. Clinical Sum15

$29.99

There is a thin place where dream and event meet, a pivotal place where, as the poet John Keats once noted, the world is the vale of soul making. Robert D. Romanyshyn's life in psychology has been a journey in the world in search of those threshold places and their momentary epiphanies. Along the way he has come to realize that psychology has been more than a profession he chose. It has been a vocation that chose him. Indeed, he has expressed that, in coming to be a psychologist, he senses at times that he has been in some way following a path coded in his name, Romanyshyn, which means 'son of a gypsy.' He has been a wanderer drawn to those fringe areas where psychology spills into philosophy and poetry, where history and literature percolate with the shared collective dreams of the soul, and where the splendor of the world's simple displays can awaken a forgotten, lost and elemental sense of home. These philosophical, psychological and poetic reflections by former students, colleagues and friends, speak to the ways in which Dr. Romanyshyn's journey has crossed paths with their own. These authors join him in a return home from exile which is never finished.

You had the most amazing dream last night. It spoke to your highest aspiration-your most secret wish-and presented a vision of a future that was right for you. But now, in the cold light of day, that inspiring dream is gone forever-or is it?

Depth Psychology: Meditations in the Field, Second Edition

$15.95

Developed in the spirit of C.G. Jung, and extended by the work of James Hillman, Depth Psychology: Meditations in the Field grows directly from the soil of the Romantic Movement of the 19th century, itself a rebellion against the legacy of Enlightenment fundamentalism, which emphasized the literal reality of the world, and feasted on Measurement and the quantification of all knowledge.

Casting the Shadows: Selected Poems

$13.00

Casting the Shadows: Selected Poems (2001) by Dennis Patrick Slattery is the first of four volumes of poetry by the author. Of this wide assortment of themes, the author writes in the Introduction: “Poetic images, I began to sense, were ways to organize experience along a different pathway in the psyche and in the body. To read or write poetry was indeed a method by which emotion and intellect can create a reality together.” The intent of the volume is to explore the fundamentally poetic nature of the psyche.

Introductory essay plus 91 poems all original and all written by me.

Varieties of Mythic Experience: Essays on Religion, Psyche and Culture

$18.00

We need a sense of myth for our individual and collective equilibrium. Sanity itself may be tied to having some kind of lively imagination so that one can feel the strange fantasies that continue to insist themselves into consciousness in both waking and dreaming states.... – from the Foreword by Robert Sardello The essential paradox is this: Myth points to a baseline that can never be fully drawn; there exists no lowest layer for myth. – from the Introduction by Glen Slater and Dennis Patrick Slattery ... rituals in fact do not require complementary myths to ’explain’ them, nor is ritual a ’re-enactment’ of myth, but that rituals speak eloquently in their own right. – from Chapter 3, “Rambu Solo’: the Toraja Cult of the Dead and Embodied Imagination,” by Laura Grillo A myth occurs when the objective reality confuses itself with a subjective reality. The myth is, so to speak, a montage, and montages can lie – but they can inspire as well. A myth can support either revolution or the status quo; it can provoke enthusiasm or repression. – from Chapter 7, “How is Psychology a Mythology?” by Ginette Paris

This book presents contributions from different authors covering the mythical basis for different religions. It also shows how psychology and philosopy have been influenced by myths.
