Psychotherapy, East and West

By Watts, Alan W

New York: Pantheon, 1961. Hardcover. Very Good/Fair. edge wear to boards, light soiling to page ends; jacket is heavily rubbed, edge-worn with small edge tears; What is the common ground between Western psychiatry and Eastern philosophy, and what has each to learn from the other? Alan Watts found a common principle that, intentionally or otherwise, seems to be used wherever therapy is trying to overcome man's false sense of himself as an isolated ego -- an ego that traps him in a perpetual flight from death and loneliness. In varying ways and degrees, both Eastern philosophy and Western psychotherapy engage the individual in experiments that vividly reveal the fallacy of this conception and give him a new feeling of identity.

Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, 2006-01-19. Paperback.

"The Erl-King" and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" appear among the ballads, and his fiction in this collection includes the entire text of Werther and passages from Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship and other works. Other writings feature observations on travel in Italy, criticism of the works of Shakespeare and Byron, and letters to friends and family.

By Sclar, Deanna

Foster City: IDG Books Worldwide, 1999-09-30. Trade Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear, cover creases; Most of us don't know the first thing about the machines we're licensed to drive - and this can turn a ticket to freedom into a ticket to trouble. If you're like most people, you probably tend to drive around until something goes wrong with the car. You then incur the expense of replacing worn and burnt-out parts (or the entire engine) when low-cost, regular maintenance could have kept your wheels turning for a long time. Auto Repair For Dummies is indispensable for anyone who is tired of nodding and smiling at the incomprehensible mutterings of your mechanic, only to end up shelling out money for repairs that you neither fully understand nor always need. This easy-to-understand guide is also for you if you * Don't have the vaguest idea of how a car works. * Can't identify anything you see under the hood of your vehicle. * Are tired of other people assuming (especially if you're a teenager or a woman) that you aren't capable of handling repairs yourself. * Don't want to feel helpless in an emergency. * Are tired of being ripped off because of your own ignorance. This book shows you how your car works; what it needs in the way of tender loving care; and how to keep from being overcharged if you need to entrust repairs to someone else. Auto Repair For Dummies also gives you the scoop on these topics and more: * What makes your vehicle go (and how and why) * A program of "preventive medicine" to avoid trouble * Shopping for tools and knowing how to use them * Diesel engines and alternatively powered cars * How to keep your car looking its best * Dealing with on-road emergencies * Checking your tires, alignment, and steering By handling the simple maintenance and tune-ups and being able to diagnose trouble and perform the less complex repairs yourself, you'll save some serious money. Once you break the ice (or crack open the hood), the heady sense of power will carry you through basic car repair and maintenance with confidence and ease.

The Lord's Supper

By Barclay, William

New York: Westminster Press, 1982-09-01. Paperback. Good. edge wear; embossed with previous owner's mark on cover; Not for the first time, reviewers have had very mixed feelings about Dr Barclay's writing, and his approach to the theology of the sacraments has been found wanting. On the other hand, considerable personal correspondence and requests to use the liturgy with which the book concludes show that once again, for the ordinary reader, the author has managed to bring new meaning to what he claims has become 'a ritual rather than a reality'. `When we can neither grasp nor teach the truth,' Dr Barclay goes on, 'it is better to get hold of some part of the truth which we can understand and on which we can act. All I have tried to do is to examine the history of the sacrament, and then to set down a view of it which I know is incomplete and which I know ineans something vital to those to whom it has been through the years presented. Dr Norman Pittenger, from a very different tradition, echoes the thoughts of others in commenting: 'Whatever more we may wish to say about ?'

Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

By Hofstadter, Douglas R

New York: Basic Books, 1979-05-31. Hardcover. Good/Fair. jacket is heavily sunned and frayed at edges, small edge tears; boards are edge worn; some light soiling to page ends; Douglas Hofstadter's book is concerned directly with the nature of “maps” or links between formal systems. However, according to Hofstadter, the formal system that underlies all mental activity transcends the system that supports it. If life can grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing neurons, then so too will computers attain human intelligence. Gödel, Escher, Bach is a wonderful exploration of fascinating ideas at the heart of cognitive science: meaning, reduction, recursion, and much more.

The Ambassador's Secret: Holbein and the World of the Renaissance

By North, John

London: Hambledon and London, 2002-04-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; This study provides a radical reinterpretation of Holbein's famous painting. The celebrated portrait of two French diplomats at the court of Henry VIII has usually been linked to the political and religious unrest of the day. John North shows that the painting has a very different, and previously undetected, central theme and many other meanings. Far from being random, the objects in "The Ambassadors" are deliberately, and very accurately, placed. In revealing exactly what they, and the painting, mean, this book opens a window on the world of the Renaissance.

JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters

By Douglass, James W

New York: Touchstone, 2010-10-19. Trade Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; The acclaimed book Oliver Stone called "the best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance," JFK and the Unspeakable details not just how the conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy was carried out, but WHY it was done...and why it still matters today. At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy's change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence. Once these dark "Unspeakable" forces recognized that Kennedy's interests were in direct opposition to their own, they tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and orchestrated the subsequent cover-up. Douglass takes readers into the Oval Office during the tense days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, along on the strange journey of Lee Harvey Oswald and his shadowy handlers, and to the winding road in Dallas where an ambush awaited the President's motorcade. As Douglass convincingly documents, at every step along the way these forces of the Unspeakable were present, moving people like pawns on a chessboard to promote a dangerous and deadly agenda.
