On Being Human
Book Description HTML
This book covers a wide range of topics: psychology and psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and the psychological insights we find in ancient texts. To be fully inclusive in tackling the question of what it means to be human we need to address spiritual answers as well as scientific answers. So here is a book which includes Jesus of Nazareth as well as Freud, Paul of Tarsus as well as Jung, and suggests that in order to answer the question, what it means to be human, it is important not to exclude the spiritual, or to assume that when we die that is the end of us. Can we see Freud's id, ego, and super-ego as a parallel with the Bible's body, soul and spirit? Dare we think about left and right brain strengths in the same context as the fruit of the spirit? Here are some answers.
