Book Description Orient BlackSwan, New Delhi, India, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Carl Gustav Jung merged Eastern mysticism with Western psychology, brought scientific respectability to religion, laid the foundation for 'the New Age', and is second only to Freud in influence and importance. So it is easy to see why some people consider him a genius. But others. Put it this way: Some people are so good that all we can do is look up to them. He was a great man who made great mistakes. The two most (in) famous events in Jung's life were his break with Freud and his sojourn with the Nazis. Most books on Jung minimize his Nazi period. Author and psychologist Jon Plantania, finds nazism too hideous to minimize, so he tells this part of the story without pulling any punches Platania then takes us on a tour to the work that made Jung one fo the Pillars of modern psychology. And what a body of work it is! Jung's open-mindedness was astonishing Wherever he went - Calcutta, Egypt, Palestine, Kenya - Jung learned something that expanded his views. His open-ended psychology incorporated yoga, meditation, prayer, alchemy, mythology, astrology, numerology, the I ching - even flying saucers! he taught us that psychology and religion can not only coexist peacefully together, but that thet can enhance us, inspire us, and help us complete ourselves.

Book Description Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd., 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. The Danish Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard was one of the most original thinkers of the nineteenth century and one of the most enigmatic men who ever walked the earth. Philosophically, Kierkegaard was the "bridge" that led from Hegel to Existentialism. Kierkegaard abhorred Hegel`s abstract, know-it-all idealism that tried to capture reality in a few words. Kierkegaard`s attack on social and religious complacency and his single-handed assault on traditional Western philosophy generated a crisis that produced a redically new way of philosophizing and made him the founder of the school that would later be called Existentialism. To Kiergegaard, reality was personal, subjective-it began and ended with the individual-and philosophy was not something one merely talked about, it was the way you lived. For such a brilliant thinker, the way Kierkegaard lived was.somewhat too interesting? His "abstract" love affair? His obsesssion with death? His "leap of Faith", his cynicism, his marvellous sense of humour-how do you put all that into one man? For starter, you read KIERKEGAARD FOR BEGINNERS. It explains, plainly and simply, the grat Danish thinker`s obsession with the particularity of human existence as well as his demonstration of how the creation of an authentic new kind of individual is possible.
