Psychic Reality and Psychoanalytic by Barnaby B. Barratt

Psychic Reality and Psychoanalytic Knowing: 3 (Routledge Library Editions: Psychoanalysis) by Barnaby B. Barratt
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6.6 Mb
Overview: How do we know our mental life, and how is our mental life altered by our efforts to know it better? Originally published in 1984, this title attempts an epistemological and ontological discourse concerning the understanding of human mental processes, and it aims toward a definitive thesis on the dialectics of knowing and being in this work of psychological understanding. What this work reconfronts are questions pertaining to all psychology and to all human sciences. Yet much of its focus is on the understanding of unconscious mental contents, on the question of knowing and being in Freud’s psychology.

Boundaries of Self and Reality Online by Jayne Gackenbach+

Boundaries of Self and Reality Online: Implications of Digitally Constructed Realities by Jayne Gackenbach, Johnathan Bown
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.5 Mb
Overview: As technology continues to rapidly advance, individuals and society are profoundly changed. So too are the tools used to measure this universe and, therefore, our understanding of reality improves. Boundaries of Self and Reality Online examines the idea that technological advances associated with the Internet are moving us in multiple domains toward various "edges." These edges range from self, to society, to relationships, and even to the very nature of reality. Boundaries are dissolving and we are redefining the elements of identity. The book begins with explorations of the digitally constructed self and the relationship between the individual and technological reality. Then, the focus shifts to society at large and includes a contribution from Chinese researchers about the isolated Chinese Internet. The later chapters of the book explore digital reality at large, including discussions on virtual reality, Web consciousness, and digital physics.

The Reality of Prayer by Edward M. Bounds

The Reality of Prayer by Edward M. Bounds (Christian Classics Ethereal Library)
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 298 KB
Overview: Some people believe that prayer is simply a human invention, with no true substance. Not so, argues Edward Bounds in his powerful book The Reality of Prayer. There is a spiritual reality to prayer, he urges. Prayer brings us closer to God–both through God’s answering of our prayers, and through our own character being changed by prayer. Bounds reinforces these points in the second half of his book, where he discusses Christ as both a teacher of prayer and as an example of prayer. Finally, Bounds ends his encouraging and enlightening discussion by explaining the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer. This interesting treatise attests to the true reality and power of prayer–another classic from Edward Bounds.

The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins (.M4B)

The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True By Richard Dawkins
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 85 MB
Overview: Richard Dawkins, the world’s most famous evolutionary biologist, presents a gorgeously lucid, science book examining some of the nature’s most fundamental questions both from a mythical and scientific perspective.

Science is our most precise and powerful tool for making sense of the world. Before we developed the scientific method, we created rich mythologies to explain the unknown. The pressing questions that primitive men and women asked are the same ones we ask as children. Who was the first person? What is the sun? Why is there night and day? The myths that address these questions are beautiful, but in every case their beauty is exceeded by the scientific truth.

With characteristic clarity and verve, Dawkins answers these big questions. Looking first at some of the myths that arose to answer the question, he then, dazzles us with the facts. He looks at the building blocks of matter, the first humans, the sun – explaining the life and death of stars; why there’s a night and a day – ranging from our solar system to the inner workings of our planet; what a rainbow really is-going from the rainbow in your backyard to the age of the universe; and finally, he poses a question that still baffles scientists: When did everything begin?

Hegel’s Philosophy of Reality, Freedom by Robert M. Wallace

Hegel’s Philosophy of Reality, Freedom, and God (Modern European Philosophy) by Robert M. Wallace
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.71 Mb
Overview: This book shows that the repeated announcements of the death of Hegel’s philosophical system have been premature. Hegel’s Philosophy of Freedom, Reality, and God brings to light accomplishments for which Hegel is seldom given credit: unique arguments for the reality of freedom, for the reality of knowledge, for the irrationality of egoism, and for the compatibility of key insights from traditional theism and naturalistic atheism. The book responds in a systematic manner to many of the major criticisms leveled at Hegel’s system, from Feuerbach and Kierkegaard to Heidegger and Charles Taylor. It provides detailed interpretations of Hegel’s Philosophy of Spirit, large parts of his indispensable Science of Logic, and important parts of his Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Right. Unlike many academic books on Hegel, this one treats him very much as a ‘live’ thinker, whom we can learn from today.

Our naked eyes see only a thin sliver of reality.

And we are blind compared to the animals that can see in infrared, or ultraviolet, or in 360-degree vision. These animals live in the same world we do, but they see something quite differ-ent when they look around.
