Bringing together popular and academic cultures, Inna Semetsky presents Tarot as a system of transformative hermeneutics for adult self-education and cultural pedagogy. Her research is a decisive and intelligent step ahead from the reductive stereotype of Tarot as fortune-telling. The fifteen life stories at the heart of the book exemplify the author’s commitment to alternative modes of education and counseling that transcend individual, cultural or language barriers. Assembling a rich array of sources, from Hermeticism to Jungian depth psychology, the philosophies of Noddings, Buber, and Deleuze, and the science of self-organization, this book opens a new path to personal and social revitalization. It should be widely read across disciplinary divides by scholars, students, and professionals alike.

Semetsky’s new book offers a bracing account of Tarot semiotics in view of its deep significance for educational experience. Analyzing the symbolic language of Tarot images that express the intimations of the unconscious, she invites readers to explore novel ways of learning about the nature of ourselves and the world we are situated in. Combining thorough research with an accessible style, this groundbreaking book is essential reading for present and future generations of practitioners, academics and students across disciplines. Pia Brînzeu, Professor of English Literature and Vice-Rector of the Universityof Timis ̧oara, Romania; author of Corridors of Mirrors. A sequel to the author’s Re-Symbolization of the Self: Human Development and Tarot Hermeneutic and Semiotics Education Experience, Semetsky’s new book presents the Tarot sign-system as a school of ethical living. Bringing the philosophies of Peirce, Deleuze, Dewey, Whitehead and Gebser in a dialogue with the cutting-edge science of coordination dynamics, she grounds the art of Tarot in the logic of signs acting across nature, culture and human mind. Building on Noddings’ “maternal factor”, Semetsky demonstrates how the lessons embodied in Tarot symbolism recover the feminine value of relations and contribute to Self~Other integration. Such is the message of Tarot images. The Image is the Message. Igor Klyukanov, Professor of Communication, Eastern Washington University, USA; editor, Russian Journal of Communication; author of A Communication Universe: Manifestations of Meaning, Stagings of Significance. Semetsky’s amalgamation of the techniques of visual communication with the emerging field of edusemiotics is an absolute masterpiece in transdisciplinarity. By forging diverse strands of inquiry into an overall model of how images enhance learning, Semetsky’s new book provokes us to take a fresh look at iconic information and is a required reading for everyone who is engaged with the art and science of visual semiotics at the intersection of nature and culture. Marcel Danesi, Professor of Anthropology, University of Toronto, Canada; editor-in-chief, Semiotica; author of The Quest for Meaning: A Guide to Semiotic Theory and Practice. Finally. An in-depth look at Tarot from within the field of semiotics, a perspective that had been inexplicably overlooked until now. As a language of exile from language, Tarot cards are silent words that became images. Here is a book that turns our thirst for symbols into a learning tool. The sign sings in Inna Semetsky’s work. Enrique Enriquez, (con)temporary tarot,; author of Tarology.

Self And Symbolism In The Poetry Of Michelangelo John Donne And Agrippa D Aubigne

Alienation, ecstasy, death, rebirth: in the poetry of Michelangelo, Donne, and d' Aubigne these archetypal themes make possible the ultimate formulation of new poetic symbolizations of self and world. As their poetry evolves from a primarily rhetorical towards a fully symbolic mode, images of loss of self (in ecstasy or in alienation), of death and rebirth, recur with increasing frequency and intensity. Whether the context is love poetry or religious poetry, the basic problem remains the same; love is the link between the two kinds of poetry. And love is indeed a problem for these three poets, since it involves the self in relation to the "other," the other being either God or another human being. Increasingly, the work of each poet centers on a need to analyze or abolish the gulf separating subject and object, self and other. The dominant mode of most of the three poets' work is neither rhetorical nor symbolic, but expressive. This transitional mode reveals the individual poet's most urgent concerns and conflicts, his sense of self in Its most isolated or burdensome, affirmative or struggling state. Under lying most of their poems is a profound self-consciousness - a heightened awareness of self as a powerful, separate entity, with a corresponding objectification of all reality outside of self. The Renaissance in general is a time of increasing individualism and 1 self-consciousness.

A long history of inquiry about human nature and the self stretches from the ancient tradition of Socratic self-knowledge in the context of ethical life to contemporary discussions of brain function in cognitive science. It begins with a conflict among the ancients. On one view, which comes to be represented most clearly by Aristotle, the issue is settled in terms of a composite and very complex human nature. Who I am is closely tied to my embodied existence. The other view, found as early as the Pythagoreans, and developed in the writings of Plato, Augustine and Descartes, held that genuine humanness is not the result of an integration of 'lower' functions, but a purification of those functions in favour of a liberating spirituality. The animal elements are excluded from the human essence. The modern debate on the problem of the self, although owing much to the insights of Locke and Hume, can still be situated within the context of the two schools of ancient thought, and this has led many to despair over the lack of apparent progress in this problem. Today, of course, we often tend to look to science rather than philosophy to develop our understanding of a wide range of fundamental issues. To what extent is the problem of the self a scientific issue? Can insights from the study of neuropsychology and cognitive development in infancy provide a new perspective? Can the study of schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorders tell us anything about the nature of human self-consciousness? Many would answer yes to the above questions, but then is it not also the case that the study of exceptional 'self-actualised' human experience is equally relevant? And can the phenomenological tradition, dedicated to the systematic study of human experience, and contemporary analytic approaches in philosophy help us out of some of the impasses that have bedevilled the empiricist tradition? MODELS OF THE SELF includes all these perspectives in an attempt to cast light on one of the most intractable problems in science and the humanities.

The book presents a study of key issues in Winerson's oeurve. The selected works include Oranges are not the Only Fruit, art & Lies, The PowerBook, and Written on the Body, works that are all concerned with the self in relation to the concepts of time, love gender, and the body. Drawing on Jungian ideas of quest and individual and Queer theory, Marie Herholdt Jorgensen shows how these concepts in the works of winterson are grounded in the prospect of numerous potential realities in which several narrations of the self are made possible. Winterson disrupts the notion of one objective reality and instead centers on the individual as the narrator of various versions of reality and the self. The book contains summaries of all of Winterson's novels, making the book accessible for readers previously unfamiliar with jeanette winterson.

`Overall this both is accessible and useful... a very readable book' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy `Skills in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy is not just an academic guide; it is a valuable tool-kit for the therapist regardless of the level of expertise. It provides, at times, an almost visual insight to the therapeutic process by drawing on the emotional and reflective resources of the reader through the use of the simplest languages' - Sheila Hawkins, Counselling Psychology Review `Janet Tolan has drawn on her extensive knowledge and experience to produce an accessible and imaginative introduction to the skills of person-centred therapy. Her excellent book is enlivened by useful, informative exercises and examples from practice, which convey the heart and methods of the approach to the reader. She demonstrates the practical power of Rogers' necessary and sufficient conditions, explains clearly the person-centred notion of process and also deals with structural and professional issues. She even shows how the therapeutic conditions can be applied to working with organizations. This book is a 'must' for both beginning and experienced person-centred practitioners' - Paul Wilkins, Co-Editor of British Journal of Guidance and Counselling `What is also valuable in this book is the way that the author places person-centred working within the professional context, demonstrating its practical application under the chapter headings of "beginnings and endings", "professional issues" and "managing the work in an organization". Janet writes in a very accessible style. Skills in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy will certainly be of great value to the person seeking to grasp the fundamental principles of person-centred working.... Paul effectively tackles a range of issues, under chapter headings that convey some of the challenges made towards the person-centred approach, for instance, "Self-Actualisation: A Culture-Bound, Naïve and Optimistic View of Human Nature?" and "Non-Directivity: a Fiction and Irresponsible Denial of Power?" Chapters are subtitled with further affirmations that question person-centred working: "How Can Anyone Guarantee Unconditional Positive Regard?", "Empathy - an Illusion of Shared Consciousness?", "Congruence - an Impossible Way of Being?", questions which he responds to head on, describing the truth concerning the theoretical nature and application of person-centred therapy, drawing on a range of key theoreticians and practitioners within this discipline' - Richard Bryant-Jefferies, Healthcare, Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal `[Skills in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy] is logically ordered and deals with the central tenets of psychotherapy from a person-centred perspective.... This text is a good, solid read and will bring an opportunity for clear thinking and practice for many in the field of mental health and not only counsellors. It will be valuable for teachers and educators alike as well as anyone who is concerned with personal interactions with others' - Tom Mason, Mental Health Care Skills in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy is a step-by-step guide to counselling practice using the person-centred approach. The book takes the reader through the counselling process, providing advice on how to structure and manage therapeutic work in ways which are thoroughly grounded in person-centred principles. The book describes all aspects of the therapeutic relationship - from the initial meeting and assessment, right through to ending the relationship well - and demonstrates how the skills and attitudes of the person-centred practitioner are used effectively in a range of counsellor-client interactions. Psychological contact, congruence, empathy and unconditional positive regard - central tenets of the approach - are defined, not only as the basis of counselling, but also of the practitioner's wider role within their organization or agency. Skills in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy is an ideal introduction for beginning practitioners and for more experienced therapists who want to extend their range. The subtleties of the person-centred approach are fully explored and examples and exercises are used to aid understanding of theory and the development of skills.

"This volume explores the two movements in the journey to transcendence. The first is the drive to be an integrated and powerful self. The second is to leave that behind and move beyond the self into relationship. The two movements are inextricably joined - separation and attachment, autonomy and relationship. Humans are pulled simultaneously by the urge to be and to be for." "The Desiring Self is an explanation and a practical guide to the process of self-transcendence. Using case studies as well as insights from psychology and theology, it takes readers through the steps of understanding themselves as incarnate, integrated and yet transcendent beings bent on discovering their "true selves" as known by God. It is a book to be read and relished by pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, readers exploring the confluence of psychology and religion and all persons on the journey of self-transcendence."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The subject of this book is the crossover between critical study and creative writing. 'Active reading' is a structured process of writing activities using imitation, variation and experimentation. Through practical composition techniques such as 'transformational writing', 're-writing' or 'translation', students can use writing activities to develop their critical imagination. This book bridges the gap between theories of learning and Literary studies in Higher Education. Setting the argument in an historical and theoretical context, it outlines the importance of writing as a medium of learning and argues for its usefulness in aiding English students' understanding of theoretical as well as literary and cultural texts. The authors provide a reflective account of teaching and assessment methods using writing activities and critical thinking techniques and the forms of learning they promote. In the last section, they explore the connections with other forms of writing practice in related disciplines and argue for the role of transformational writing in promoting independent learning. Appendices provide examples of the range of activities that can be used and an indicative list of literary examples.

Just as DNA determines the genetic makeup of every individual, a motif determines individual biopsycho-social, emotional, and spiritual behaviors and attitudes. This epigenetic theory of individuality describes the motif as a unique artistry of organizing principles. The author uses the concept of motif to explain physiology, behavior, and attitude and to show how each person has his or her own unique system of motifs that comprises the fabric of every level of personality. Case studies exemplify the way in which motifs manifest the ""self"" and how the core personality is understood once the individual's motif is revealed. Of interest to graduate students in psychology and clinicians and counselors in the field of humanistic and clinical psychology, holistic medicine, wellness and mind-body healing, psycho-biology, and spirituality this book will bring new understanding to personality and behavior studies.

Edusemiotics is a pioneering area of study that connects semiotics – the science of signs – with educational theory and the philosophy of education. This volume reflects cutting-edge research by scholars in education and in semiotics worldwide, bridging the two discourses to present the state of the art in this new transdisciplinary field. The book’s emphasis is on educational theory as based on semiotic philosophy: as such, it challenges the current conception of semiotics in education as merely a sub-branch of applied semiotics. It presents edusemiotics as a novel unified conceptual framework at the interface of theoretical semiotics and educational philosophy, based on both theoretical and empirical studies from around the world. The chapters in this handbook also bring to the fore the intellectual legacy of Charles S. Peirce, John Dewey, Gilles Deleuze, Umberto Eco, Julia Kristeva, Mikhail Bakhtin, Paul Ricoeur, Martin Heidegger and other thinkers, pointing out the implications of edusemiotics for meaningful pedagogy and experiential learning in diverse contexts.

The Subjective Self

For all their strides in understanding how we create and think about cultures, psychologists, linguists, and logicians have had difficulty explaining how we conceive our selves?how the self can, in fact, be both the object and the subjective originator of its surroundings. Harwood Fisher's purpose in this far-reaching, interdisciplinary book is to depict the subjective self in its true complex duality. In The Subjective Self, Fisher argues that the key to depicting both aspects of the self simultaneously and thus modeling it more holistically than before is to visualize the self in a logical space. From an origin point inside this space, the self tries out metaphors and launches categories to logically order what it wants, sees, and encounters. This is a creative cognitive process, "metaphoric framing," by which the self invents new forms and depicts new organizations of its experiences, impressions, and information. It is also a generative linguistic process, "bracketing," by which the self can step outside its own expressed thoughts, gain new levels of awareness, re-position itself as an agent responsible for its ideas and statements, and, in short, empower its own identity. The framing sets in motion versatile mental categories?forms that are projected into mental space, where they become objectified. The bracketing sets in motion the logical bounds of the "I," stabilizing the individual's identity and giving thrust to the subjective self's dynamic causal role. In elaborating this theory, Fisher extends the ideas of Kurt Lewin, Jean Piaget, and C. S. Peirce, among others. By drawing on each of these thinkers, he is able to bring their common themes of perspective and construction together in his portrait of the self as a creative iconic space.
