  • Transgenerational Healing of Oedipus at Colonus: Unveiling a Universal Therapeutic Model (Genesis Editions)

    by Tony T. Gaillard
    Strange as it may seem, the family curse inherited by Oedipus at his birth has never been analyzed prior to this study. Going back four generations in the lineage of Oedipus, the author deciphers the transgenerational inheritance that alienates Oedipus until his discovery of his adoption and the identity of his parents.

  • Scientific Introspection

    by William X. Adams
    Scientific Introspection calls for psychologists to use introspection to investigate the mind. Remarkably, we have the ability to look inward at the workings of our minds with introspection. As far as we know, we are the only animal on the planet that can do that. It is foolish not to use this amazing gift to study the structure and functions of the mind. Currently, psychologists have to study the brain and behavior and guess what the mind is like. But why guess? A well-defined procedure of in... more
