On-stream books

This page will serve to call attention to books that are no mainstream, but are well worth to be read because they show the underlying mechanisms of different societal issues. Under the page of each author’s book page you’ll find some info on the books I’ve read.

While volunteering at the Ernest Becker Foundation I was introduced to the works of the anthropologist Dr. Ernest Becker who was as an interdisciplinary scientific thinker and writer ahead of his time. If you are into intellectual books and have a sincere desire to understand human behavior from a concept that touches us all, please pick-up one of his books. Ernest Becker received recognition for his works from the scholar community after his exitus.

At the EBF I learned of another scientific scholar in the field of psychology whose books I found very informative and enlightening. His name is Dr. Robert J Lifton and he is an American psychiatrist and author. I borrowed some of his books from the library and it was interesting to see that other people had marked pages and given hints on some pages to events that are occurring today.

I’m actually enthused by the works of Carl G. Jung. I’ve read a few of his books, but here I would like to mention Sallie Nichols who studied at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich and wrote a book in which she incorporates the Jungian psychology into the interpretation of the Tarot.

The book that I mention in my post ‘Number three’ is the book by Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker. This book helped me by-and-by to understand the fundamental concept of numerology. Anyone interested in numerology and the meaning of numbers will be inspired by it.

On March 4th, 2008, I attended a lecture held by Deepak Chopra at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle. His personal concern is to address the deeper meaning of our existence and help us in our quest of self-discovery and self-actualization. He is already a very accomplished and successful author, and years ago, I had bought a book from him. On the Benaroya Hall’s webpage you can read that he states “It takes a total shift in perception to realize that you are not in the world, the world is in you.” This is in concordance with the teachings of other like-minded individuals. And one of my quotes from Joseph Campbell in my book expresses the same “The essence of oneself and the essence of the world; these two are one.”
