Soul and the bourgeois PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

schoolThe new Enlightenment which many seek after - among the most distinguished of them being the sociologist Ulrich Beck - speaks of the necessity for a new Fall of the Bastille.[1] This time, however, the call for this is not focused on opposition to the monarchy, but on dealing with the environmental problem, emergent economic totalitarianism, and the spiritual or cultural impasse, with reference to ourselves, to our identity.

Questions for Freud and his successors PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

Hall Freud Jung in front of ClarkThe science of psychology is one of the most important tools available to mankind. Before the discovery of psychoanalysis by Sigmund Freud, women who suffered from hysteria were 'treated' by electro-shock. At that period, 'doctors' were unable to imagine a better therapy for an illness for which they believed the displacement of the womb to be responsible. Freud's theory revealed, inter alia, a part of the manner of operation of the human psyche, demonstrated the existence and the definitive role of repressed experiences of psychic pain, and was able to bring relief to many kinds of psychological problems. Much has happened since then.

ESSAY: FEAR IN THE FACE OF TIME, OR FEAR IN THE FACE OF CREATION AND EVOLUTION PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

Area controlling emotion of fearFear of the future is common to all of us. Daily and social life is determined by our attitude towards fear in the face of time. The positive and negative characters in history and the trends of thought are shaped by the manner in which they react to this. For those who have surrendered to fear, all the spiritual, intellectual, and biological 'children' of evolution constitute a threat. Surrender to the pressure of fear in the face of time causes what the writer calls the 'Herod Syndrome'. This attitude to fear in the face of time is behind every closed society. Yet again it seems that we are heading towards an explosion of barbarity.

FROM THE POWER-BASED TO THE COLLECTIVE MODEL PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

OdipusAndSphinxYet again, it seems that we are heading towards an explosion of barbarity. The magnitude of this catastrophic explosion will be in proportion to the intensity with which we trigger the model of competition.  Our fixation with this archaic phobic model threatens the sustainability of civilisation and its meaning. Archetypal symbols of this fixation are Oedipus and Caesar.

TABOO, TOTEM & TRANSCENDENCE OF THE WILL TO POWER PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

Oidipodeio SimplegmaFreud confirmed with psychoanalysis what the experience of wars, religious and political persecutions, and other atrocities demonstrate: that man inclines towards aggressiveness and is characterised by a tendency towards domination. Freud analysed exclusively the lower aspect of man and proclaimed that civilised behaviour is none other than a mask which is adjusted to social and legal rules.

SYMBOLIC IDOLISATION PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

Deep CoverThe experience of the spirit is world-wide. Those who have experienced it have left as a legacy to civilisation a roadmap which will assist anyone who is interested in following the path to the spirit. No symbolic roadmap has escaped idolisation - dogmatisation; the symbols have become a dead letter. Modernity was built upon disdain for the transcendental and exorcised any concern with symbols; in the place of God it put the state and the power of analytical thought to organise and standardise. This model of life is being crushed.

JEALOUSY AND COMPETITIVENESS IN THE FACE OF WHAT IS HIGHER PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

mind-competitivenessIn times of crisis, the fear of death, which we exile to the unconscious in times of 'abundance' and normality, comes to the surface. Although it is always present within us, we prefer to leave it to slumber rather than facing it with honesty. This temporising has many practical consequences, at an individual and social level. Until we become conscious of how much the fear of death determines all our reactions, everything will be interpreted in terms of brute power.

New psychology and the synthesis of all the currents of thought PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul

7_sunriseIt is our profoundly held belief that as our spiritual approach, as humanity, will broaden out, the field of ideas will revert as the definitive feature of a new cycle of development of the apprehension of the soul and of psychology. Focusing on the field of ideas will prompt psychological inquiry and science towards a new development, in parallel with the progress of eco-psychological thinking and the development of the ecological sciences, the neurosciences, and the sciences of information and communication.

THE TRANSFORMATION OF PSYCHOLOGY INTO AN OPEN SYSTEM OF IDEAS PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul
6_thoughtNew ideas come up in every age. The problem with such new ideas is that it is very easy for many to say what somebody said to Freud when he first described his theory: that he says a lot of things that hold true, but others have said them before him, and a lot of new things, which, however, are of no importance and are nonsense. After so many years, nobody now remembers this person; but everybody remembers Freud.

5_Conception_commonWe live in an age which is ripe for us to put an end to one-dimensional monisms, to secluded concepts and ideas, and for us to recognise the collectivity of ideas, of dimensions, and their holistic, synthesising, and validating dynamic. The broadening of our scientific knowledge leads to a new way of apprehension, to a new quality of apprehension.

THE QUEST FOR THE SOUL OF THE SELF AND OF THE COSMOS PDF Print E-mail
Psychology - Soul
4_Par18_dore

The fundamental question of psychology, as that has been posed through philosophical thinking and by human need and evolution, is what exactly the soul is, and in what dimension it is manifested.
If we were to approach the issue of the soul in a Cartesian manner, the soul is expressed with its seat as a small cone or conarium, the pineal gland (the 'third eye').

Psychology_barnstarPsychology started out as a science under the burden of a positivistic mimetism of the natural sciences. It was born in defining and delimiting an object (psychological man) which it receives historically through the civilisation of man, and through a lengthy culture of concepts and communication, as that has been structured chiefly by the trends of philosophy.
