Nothing could more perfectly illustrate the Desiderata’s mood and meaning better than this gallery of innocent, adorable tots. A peacefully sleeping infant helps us remember "what peace there may be in silence” and a tiny hand gripping the edge of a crib shows exactly what it means to "nurture strength of spirit.” It’s an inspired and unusual pairing of words and images that would be the ideal gift for a mom-to-be at her baby shower, expectant grandparents, and every parent.

What could be more placid amid noise and haste than a cat staring quietly out into a dramatic skyscape, her soft fur reflecting the light? Or more peaceful than sleeping kittens cuddled up together in a pile? Does anything illustrate the idea of "being on good terms with all persons” more than a sweet, small feline sitting atop a large, calm dog? From photos of a meowing kitty ("speak your truth quietly and clearly”) to another happily licking her paw ("beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself”), this Desiderata will charm every cat lover and provide spiritual sustenance, too.

Man’s best friend has always been a source of comfort and calm for owners--and that makes the combination of dogs and Desiderata such a superb match. Each phrase in the poem receives just the right accompanying image: a black Lab resting quietly on the beach illustrates "and remember what peace there may be in silence.” A cute mutt with its face cocked to the side--as if concentrating on a conversation--demonstrates what it means to "listen to others.” A pair consisting of one large and one small doggie reveals the truth that: "For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.” Every dog lover will be charmed.

Office copier folklore—those tattered sheets of cartoons, mottoes, zany poems, defiant sayings, parodies, and crude jokes that regularly circulate in office buildings everywhere—is the subject of this innovative study. this type of folklore represents a major form of tradition in modern America, and the authors have compiled this raw data for scholarship—and entertainment. These creations of the Paperwork Empire comment on topics and problems that concern all urban Americans. No one and nothing escapes their raunchy wit and sarcasm. Bosses, ethnic groups, minorities, the sexes, alternative lifestyles, politics, welfare, government workers, the law, bureaucracy, and even "The Night Before Christmas" all come under fire to form a biting, and hilarious, commentary on modern American society.

Empiricism And The Foundations Of Psychology

Intended for philosophically minded psychologists and psychologically minded philosophers, this book identifies the ways that psychology has hobbled itself by adhering too strictly to empiricism, this being the doctrine that all knowledge is observation-based. In the first part of this two-part work, we show that empiricism is false. In the second part, we identify the psychology-relevant consequences of this fact. Five of these are of special importance: (i) Whereas some psychopathologies (e.g. obsessive-compulsive disorder) corrupt the activity mediated by one's psychological architecture, others (e.g. sociopathy) corrupt that architecture itself. (ii) The basic tenets of psychoanalysis are coherent. (iii) All propositional attitudes are beliefs. (iv) Selves are minds that self-evaluate. And: (v) It is by giving our thoughts a perceptible form that we enable ourselves to evaluate them, and it is by expressing ourselves in language and art that we give our thoughts a perceptible form.

Psychiatry has developed a number of tools to help manage symptoms of mental disorders, broadly categorized as psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”, and psychopharmacology, or “medications”. One question left open in this regard, though, is what to do after those symptoms are controlled? How can those with depression be helped to build a better life after the remission of symptoms? Weaving together Positive Psychology and Aristotelian philosophy, this book details an approach to creating a path towards a flourishing life. Building on the two translations of the Greek term “Arete”, virtue and excellence, it links Aristotle’s ideas to those of Martin Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology, and Howard Gardner, a proponent of the Multiple Intelligences Theory.
