A topic ignored in mainstream scientific inquiry for decades, wisdom is beginning to return to the place of reverence that it held in ancient schools of intellectual study. A Handbook of Wisdom explores wisdom’s promise for helping scholars and lay people to understand the apex of human thought and behavior. At a time when poor choices are being made by notably intelligent and powerful individuals, this book presents analysis and review on a form of reasoning and decision-making that is not only productive and prudent, but also serves a beneficial purpose for society. A Handbook of Wisdom is a collection of chapters from some of the most prominent scholars in the field of wisdom research. Written from multiple perspectives, including psychology, philosophy, and religion, this book gives the reader an in-depth understanding of wisdom’s past, present, and possible future direction within literature, science, and society. ?Written from a variety of different perspectives and disciplines ?Covers past, present, and future inquiry on wisdom ?The most comprehensive book on the state of the field to date Contents Foreword Monika Ardelt; Part I.

3 Dreams: A Study of the Dreams of Jung, Descartes, Socrates, and Other Historical Figures

Marie-Louise Von Franz; Foreword By Robert Hinshaw

Shambhala, Boston, USA, 1985, 1-57062-035-0 / 9781570620355, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
These collected essays by the distinguished psychoanalyst Marie-Louise von Franz offer fascinating insights into the study of dreams, not only psychologically, but also from historical, religious, and philosophical points of view. In the first two chapters, the author offers general explanations of the nature of dreams and their use in analysis. She examines how dreams can be used in the development of self-knowledge and describes how C. G. Jung worked with his own dreams, and the fateful ways in which they were entwined with the course of his life. The rest of the book records and interprets dreams of historical personages: Socrates, Descartes, Themistocles and Hannibal, and the mothers of Saint Augustine, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and Saint Dominic. Connections are revealed between the personal and family histories of the dreamers and individual and collective mores of their times. Dreams includes writings long out of print or never before available in English translation. Printed Pages: 216. 010468

9 Psychology and Experience

Benjamin Bradley

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-521-01199-X / 9780521011990, First Paperback Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
If personal experience is the basic raw material for psychology, why do all the major psychologies of the past century marginalise or deny it? In this thought-provoking new book Benjamin Bradley shows how our everyday experiences need to be at the core of the scientific discipline. He calls for a move away from attempts to reconcile the many contrasting and often opposing theories and philosophies of contemporary psychology, and instead puts forward a scholarly and exciting new vision for psychology which focuses on the ‘here-and-now?and the importance of others as equals in teaching and research. He encourages the reader to reconsider the very basis of our understanding of what experience is. This uniquely inspiring and practical text will prove an invaluable resource for all those interested in teaching, learning and researching about the mind. ?A thought provoking study which reclaims the psychology of experience ?Realigns assumptions made about the discipline of psychology ?Professor Bradley is a well respected psychologist who has published widely in the areas of developmental and social psychology Contents Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Learning from experience; 3. From here to synchrony; 4. What to make of coincidence; 5. The topography of intersubjective space; 6. The two axes of psychological explanation; 7. Pictures of psychical change; 8. Research among equals; 9. Validating the curriculum; 10. Conclusion. Printed Pages: 256. 014378
