Modern psychology is at an impasse as it searches anxiously for new therapies to address the increasing occurrence of mental illness in contemporary society. In this groundbreaking anthology, leading authors from the perennialist school, including Huston Smith, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and Frithjof Schuon, draw on the age-old insights of the world's wisdom traditions to argue that modern psychology—behaviorism, psychoanalysis, humanistic and transpersonal psychology—overlooks the specifically spiritual factors contributing to mental health and illness.

Most brain related activity has focussed on specialized interests within individual disciplines. Recent multidisciplinary activity has provided the impetus to break down these boundaries and encourage a freer exchange of information across disciplines. This text reflects these developments. It spans the landscape of brain science to provide core information from 12 disciplines (including evolution, philosophy, anatomy, chemistry, computer science, brain dynamics, psychology, neurology, psychiatry, psychotherapy and brain imaging). In outlining how and why it is now possible to realistically model aspects of the brain's dynamics from such a wide range of intellectual endeavors, this book will prove itself useful to undergraduates, postgraduates and all those seeking a contemporary perspective and evaluation of the current status and future directions in the brain sciences.

The Successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meets for a week once every four years in Oxford and is held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world, and the papers presented reflect this global representation. Chronologically and topically, the papers range from the second century to the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events and the like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. Each set is provided with an index, an invaluable index of references to the individual Fathers and each of their works. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigor and popularity of the subjects. Includes studies on the Eucharist in Early Roman Basilicas, Sex and Holy Communion in Late Antiquity, Kissing, Purity, and Early Christian Social Order, The Domestic Origin of the Liturgy of the Word, An Examination of Christian Semiotics, The Theological Background of Iconoclastic Church Programmes, The Metaphor of Imaging from the Second to Fourth Centuries, Irenaeus on Gnostic Biblical Interpretation, Tatian's Use of Speech and Fire Metaphors, The Rhetoric of Conversion and the Construction of Experience, Second-generation Montanist Oracles, and many more. Contributions in English, French and German.

Thirty years ago, ecstasy and torment took hold of John Rivers, shocking him out of “half-baked imbecility into something more nearly resembling the human form.” He had an affair with the wife of his mentor, Henry Maartens—a pathbreaking physicist, winner of the Nobel Prize, and a figure of blinding brilliance—bringing the couple to ruin. Now, on Christmas Eve while a small grandson sleeps upstairs, John Rivers is moved to set the record straight about the great man and the radiant, elemental creature he married, who viewed the renowned genius through undazzled eyes.
