Karel Čapek (1890-1938) – the Czech dramatist, novelist and journalist. R.U.R. (1921) has made the author internationally famous, perhaps even immortal. The word “Robot” (from... More > the Czech robota, meaning drudgery), which has since been adopted by practically all languages, appears here for the first time. What is today classified as Science Fiction, in Čapek’s days was known as Utopia, and the author used this genre for making weighty social commentaries. After nearly a century, the play has withstood the test of time; the Robot’s revolt and its consequences could for instance be seen as a warning against giving the scientists a free hand in pursuit of genetic research, no matter how noble and beneficial the aims might appear to be. This is a new English translation. The Robber (1920) is essentially a romantic comedy, with some dramatic twists. The play, Čapek‘s favourite, is still enormously popular with the Czech audiences. This is believed to be the first English translation.< Less

Feelings and Emotions: Pursuing the Mysteries of the Self Image By W. D. Raymondson
eBook (PDF): $4.50
Professional or lay person, nearly everyone refers to the various 'Self-Image' concepts…'Self-Image', 'Self Worth', 'Self-Esteem' and so forth. But when you ask for a simple definition of WHAT... More > these 'Self-Image' concepts are, WHAT they do and WHY they are so important, the answers come back either as unintelligible scientific Mumbo-Jumbo or as an empty echo of the question. That the construct we call the 'Self-Image' exists is arguable but the fact that we have an entire Psycho-Social mechanism within our head (Beliefs-Thoughts-Feelings) that creates our behaviors is above reproach. Legend or science, it makes no difference, 'Self-Image' theories are a convenient way to visualize the survival analysis and problem solving processes that goes on inside our heads and more importantly a means of tracking down WHY we behave the way that we do. That is the realm of our Primordial Human-Nature and its unscientific step child…'Primordial SURVIVALISM' … both the psychological residence of our ‘Self-Image’.< Less
