What is the essence of a human being seen through the prisms of spirituality, psychology, sociology, and love, and also of sacred art? And seen also through those of leadership and justice, as well as of politics, and even crime, along with the roles of sexuality and marriage? This book defines man and woman in the context of both cosmology and society, but according to the guiding image of an archetypal human being, a holy creature fashioned in the image of God. Perry also examines what the distortion of this archetype entails, but the better to highlight the excellence of man's divine kingship.

No Two Alike Human Nature and Human Individuality

No Two Alike  Human Nature and Human Individuality

This is the story of a scientific quest, but it is also the personal story of a courageous and innovative woman who refused to be satisfied with "what everyone knows is true."

A groundbreaking theory of personality. The author of the controversial book The Nurture Assumption tackles the biggest mystery in all of psychology: What makes people differ so much in personality and behavior? It can't just be "nature and nurture," because even identical twins who grow up together—same genes, same parents—have different personalities. And if psychologists can't explain why identical twins are different, they also can't explain why each of us differs from everyone else. Why no two people are alike. Harris turns out to be well suited for the role of detective—it isn't easy to pull the wool over her eyes. She rounds up the usual suspects and shows why none of the currently popular explanations for human differences—birth order effects, for example, or interactions between genes and environment—can be the perpetrator she is looking for. None of these theories can solve the mystery of human individuality. The search for clues carries Harris into some fascinating byways of science. The evidence she examines ranges from classic experiments in social psychology to cutting-edge research in neuroscience. She looks at studies of twins, research on autistic children, observations of chimpanzees, birds, and even ants. Her solution is a startlingly original one: the first completely new theory of personality since Freud's. Based on a principle of evolutionary psychology—the idea that the human mind is a toolbox of special-purpose devices—Harris's theory explains how attributes we all have in common can make us different. This is the story of a scientific quest, but it is also the personal story of a courageous and innovative woman who refused to be satisfied with "what everyone knows is true."

This volume will concentrate its search for religious individuality on texts and practices related to texts from Classical Greece to Late Antiquity. Texts offer opportunities to express one's own religious experience and shape one's own religious personality within the boundaries of what is acceptable. Inscriptions in public or at least easily accessible spaces might substantially differ in there range of expressions and topics from letters within a sectarian religious group (which, at the same time, might put enormous pressure on conformity among its members, regarded as deviant by a majority of contemporaries). Furthermore, texts might offer and advocate new practices in reading, meditating, remembering or repeating these very texts. Such practices might contribute to the development of religious individuality, experienced or expressed in factual isolation, responsibility, competition, and finally in philosophical or theological reflections about "personhood" or "self". The volume develops its topic in three sections, addressing personhood, representative and charismatic individuality, the interaction of individual and groups and practices of reading and writing. It explores Jewish, Christian, Greek and Latin texts.

Since his election to the papacy in 1978, Pope John Paul II's incomparable theological thinking has exercised a vast influence upon the Catholic Church. His documents command worldwide attention because he presents the Tradition of the Church in an accessible way to contemporary readers. "The Mystery of the Trinity in the Theological Thought of Pope John Paul II" investigates all the papal documents, including his Encyclicals on the Father (Dives in Misericordia), on the Son (Redemptor Hominis), and on the Holy Spirit (Dominum et Vivificantem). In detail, this work systematically presents John Paul II's philosophy of the human person in relationship with the Divine Persons, his theology of creation and redemption, his Christology, and his theology of the Holy Spirit.
