"In his book, Godi investigates the function fulfilled in the psychism by revenge, and gradually reveals it to us as a mode of re-establishing equilibrium, of compensating a core of conflict in which vengeance is an instinctive reaction, in order to reestablish psychic equilibrium. He delves into our roots, enters into the psychology of Paleolithic man, attempts to show the usefulness of that mechanism when the human being struggled to dominate nature, and how that same mechanism, transferred into historical epochs, is leading us toward self-destruction. He carries out an inquiry, investigating and comparing different cultures, he discovers how, in Eastern cultures, great men arose who were capable of leaping over their violence and proposing nonviolence." -from the Prologue by Dario Ergas, author of "The Meaning of Nonmeaning" and "The Look of Meaning"

    In his book "Free Interpretation Redux" Godi Gutierrez delves into the roots of revenge and how it functions as a structural, historical response to violence in our world. Gutierrez posits that though vengeance is deeply embedded in the western psyche, it is a learned not an an inherent, unchangeable response. The author's emphasis on the current need to overcome this now outdated cultural habit of vengeance is a timely and very much needed point of view in these dangerous yet potentially transformative times
