Complexity is all the rage in economics, social sciences, management theory, psychology, health care and more. However, the author contends, most of the related talk is an anti-scientific outburst... More > similar to Intelligent Design or Creationism. Frightened by rapid knowledge obsolescence, accelerating technology advances and web-like global interconnections, pop-complexity pundits are repelled by rationality and tend to associate it with greedy technocracy and mechanistic constructs. The book takes us for a trip to the core non-linear science, and reveals the true motives of the underlying Complexity Challenge, which is certainly not a fad.< Less

There may be just two great questions in life - why am I here, and why is there suffering? In seeking answers to those questions, believers and skeptics alike have reduced God and the character and... More > our understanding of God into neat, pointless little boxes into which neither God nor the universe fit. In seeking resolution, can it be found in science, nature, and the universe itself? Does the universe hold clues to the nature of God, and can it point in the direction of solving both the question of life's meaning and purpose, and the existence of evil and suffering? This is a beautifully and powerfully written book of science and faith, seamlessly woven together not so much to provide answers as to break believers and skeptics out of their metaphysical, theological, and scientific ruts.< Less

The Myth of Equality By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.28

'The Myth of Equality' opens up the ideological philosophy of Social Transcendentalism in relation to the connection between culture and race as they, in turn, are conditioned by environment, and... More > further extends the basic gender-conditioned distinction between nature and nurture (or psychic artifice) to include the effects of nature upon psyche and of psyche, conversely, upon nature or, as I would now say, soma. All in all, this book debunks simple equalitarian reductionism, whether of the humanistic or non-humanistic varieties, and shows that there is a whole lot more at stake than might at first meet the eye, especially when that eye has been blinkered, as it were, by social conditioning not unrelated to ethnic factors.< Less

Originator, innovator, activist and educator, Emeritus Professor Michael Edwards was central to the international evolution of art therapy. These previously unpublished papers are the most... More > substantial written record of his thinking. Highly praised by leading figures in art psychotherapy, Professor Shaun McNiff wrote ‘…the ideas have wings that carry the reader inside to the marrow of art... The book will appeal to artists looking for a threshold into the arts in therapy’. Rejection of reductionism and fundamentalism made Edwards a champion of soul, a challenger of simple mindedness. Widely honoured as an art therapist, educator, supervisor and Jungian analyst this book appropriately reflects Edwards achievements. The humour, wisdom and idiosyncrasy of the writer has been preserved in the careful editing by Learmonth & Huckvale of these transcribed talks. The book is beautifully illustrated with some of Edward’s favourite artworks, the ‘Talepieces’ from Thomas Bewick’s Birds.< Less
The End of Evolution By John O'Loughlin

'The End of Evolution' points towards a future hypothetical - and morally desirable - culmination of evolution which will be both transcendentalist and anti-fundamentalist, idealist and... More > anti-materialist, metaphysical and anti-metachemical, and therefore it provides a structured blueprint for a credible alternative to worldly norms. In that respect, this title is beyond any gender-fudging utopian reductionism and/or fudged eschatology of traditional alpha-stemming religion, presupposing, as it does, a Nietzschean transvaluation of values likely to culminate in an unequivocal commitment to omega-orientated criteria. Thus the 'end' of evolution is a goal that has nothing in common with anti-evolutionary fatalism or pessimism or an overly 'realistic' scepticism with regard to the estimable task of 'world overcoming'. Its appeal can only be to idealists.< Less
