Описание: Presenting startling new biographical details about Timothy McVeigh and exposing stark contradictions and errors contained in previous depictions of the "All-American Terrorist," this book traces McVeigh's life from childhood to the Army, throughout the plot to bomb the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and the period after his 1995 arrest until his 2001 execution. McVeigh's life, as Dr. Wendy Painting describes it, offers a backdrop for her discussion of not only several intimate and previously unknown details about him, but a number of episodes and circumstances in American History as well. In Aberration in the Heartland, Painting explores Cold War popular culture, all-American apocalyptic fervor, organized racism, contentious politics, militarism, warfare, conspiracy theories, bioethical controversies, mind control, the media's construction of villains and demons, and institutional secrecy and cover-ups. All these stories are examined, compared, and tested in Aberration in the Heartland of the Real, making this book a much closer examination into the personality and life of Timothy McVeigh than has been provided by any other biographical work about him

Описание: How have figures of speech configured new concepts of time, space, and mind throughout history? Brian J. McVeigh answers this question in A Psychohistory of Metaphors: Envisioning Time, Space, and Self through the Centuries by exploring meta-framing: our ever-increasing capability to step back from the environment, search out its familiar features to explain the unfamiliar, and generate as if forms of knowledge and metaphors of location and vision. This book demonstrates how analogizing and abstracting have altered spatio-visual perceptions, expanding our introspective capabilities and allowing us to adapt to changing social circumstances."

Описание: This book was originally part of a much larger project tentatively entitled "The Propertied Self: Wealth, Progress & Human Nature". This was an overly ambitious manuscript whose coherence was probably not obvious to many readers. It was never published. However, portions that were not included in the work formed another book called "A Psychohistory of Metaphors: Envisioning Time, Space, and Self Through the Centuries", which is now in progress. The first draft of this book was much longer, and included a chapter entitled "The Aesthetics of the Propertied Self", which explored in more detail how the emergence of the propertied self and changes in the human psyche impacted not just the political economic landscape, but also influenced aesthetics. Economic and political indicators (dress, fashion, and lifestyle) were investigated and linked to how transformation in practices of wealth acquisition over an individuals lifetime led to new notions of time and self-narration. For example, a section called "The Aesthetics of Atomized Individuation" explored the psycho-politics of "obsessive cleanliness". I also discussed how technological advances that led to the invention of new spaces of "consumutopia", such as cyberspace, elaborated and reshaped psychological interiority in new ways. Examples drawn from popular culture were intended to demonstrate these changes. These topics will have to wait for another publishing opportunity. Julian Jaynes once advised me that the best way to read William Jamess "The Principles of Psychology" was not from beginning to end, but to dip into it here and there. I suspect we would appreciate many other books if this advice were followed. I am tempted, then, to suggest that this book be read in the same way, not because it is on intellectual par with The Principles of Psychology, but because books rather than disputations in orderly logic are more often extended conversations between author and reader. "Consciousness" is a vague, multi-referential term, so I will devote some space to carefully defining it. But in order to add some clarity and specificity to my usage, throughout this book I use the synonymous expressions such as "conscious interiority", "interiorised experiences" and "interiority". Finally, the careful reader will note the difference between my use of Psyche (meaning mind) with the italicised psyche, which refers to the ancient Greek concept of soul. Finally, note that my use of "personalty" is not a typo (ie: I do not mean "personality"). The former term is a legal concept describing a kind of property.

Описание: In 1976, the late Julian Jaynes of Princeton University published the groundbreaking The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind in which he argued that before the twelfth century BC, the minds of individuals were of a different neurocultural organisation. Rather than being consciously self-aware as people nowadays think of it, the behavior of our ancient predecessors was governed by religiously-inflected voices and visions. These were produced by a two-chambered or bicameral mentality: language areas in the right hemisphere (the ruler or god side) organised advice and admonishments and coded them into hallucinatory experiences that were conveyed over the anterior commissure to the left hemispheres corresponding language regions (the follower or person side). Brian J. McVeigh, a student of Julian Jaynes, took the opportunity in 1991 to record a series of informal, wide-ranging, and unstructured discussions with Jaynes, considered a controversial maverick of the psychology world. Weaving their way in and out of the discussions are the following themes: a clarification of the meaning of consciousness; the relation between linguistics, consciousness and language study as a crucial method to reveal this relation; the history of psychology and its prejudices (e.g., the marginalisation of consciousness as a research topic, ignoring socio-historical aspects of psyche, the significance of religion, the fraudulence of Freudianism, and the overuse, vagueness, and emptiness of cognitive); and some practical, therapeutic implications of Jayness ideas on consciousness. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the emergence of consciousness, language and cognition, cultural psychology, the history of psychology, and the neurocultural transformation of our species. A glossary of names provides useful historical context. Presenting a series of wide ranging and thought-provoking conversations with Julian Jaynes, who was one of the most insightful and original thinkers of the twentieth century, Discussions with Julian Jaynes constitutes an important contribution to the growing literature on Jaynes and his ideas.
