Format: Hardcover
This is an incredible compilation of all of the facets to historical exploration of the human mind. Selected writings from the Iching, Willaim James, Charles Tart, Dorothy Lee, Aldous Huxley, Inderes Shah, Gay Luce, Carl G. Jung, and Arthur Deikman, and modern (circa 1972) experiential scholars.
The book includes six sections each with an intelligent introduction by Robert E. Ornstein to readings from a variety of perspectives on human consciousness:
I. The Scope of Psychology II. Two Modes of Consciousness III. The Construction of "Ordinary" Consciousness IV. The Traditional "Esoteric" Psychologies V. Contemporary Sufism VI. An Extended Concept of Man
This is a fantastic treatise on the wholeness of collective human experience, and addresses the tendency for each of us to take our subjective realty as more than an experience. If you can find a copy of this book take a look. Great for all students of human consciousness.
