‘Wilhelm Reich and the Function of the Orgasm’ (Great Minds Series, Vol. 11)-2017 Revised, Updated and Reformatted Edition-is a study about one of the greatest authorities on the discovery of the bioenergy for modern science and medical science. The author understands his engagement for Reich as a contribution to the rehabilitation of one of the greatest, but also one of the most misunderstood scientists of the 20th century. Reich’s Greatest Discoveries is a science essay about Wilhelm Reich’s unique orgone research, a new branch of science that at present gains importance because it has shown us ways out of the ecological impasse. Wilhelm Reich, as early as in 1945, achieved complete healing of a female schizophrenic patient using bioenergetic or, as Reich termed it, orgonotic treatment. Many know about the ground-breaking work of Ronald David Laing regarding the alternative treatment of schizophrenia. However, small is the number of individuals who have noticed that Wilhelm Reich’s research and mental health treatment approach by far preceded those much more well-known and acclaimed methods. In fact, Reich achieved remarkable results with simply redirecting the patient’s orgonotic energy flow which has revolutionized the treatment of schizophrenia. The book comes with a bonus essay about Reich in German language as well as a review of Michel Odent’s book ‘The Functions of the Orgasms (2009).’

Philosophy of Mind by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 207 MB
Overview: Philosophy of Mind is the third and final part of the Encyclopaedia of the Philosophical Sciences, the collection in which Hegel (1730-1831) offered an overview of his life’s work. Though originally written in 1817, he revised it in 1830, thus providing a finished form the year before his death.
Hegel used the three parts of the Encyclopaedia – Science of Logic, Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Mind – as a basis for lectures at the Universities of Heidelberg which he joined in 1816, and in Berlin in 1820.
Philosophy of Mind is itself divided into three parts. Section 1 is titled Mind Subjective – The Soul (with subsections Anthropology, Phenomenology of Mind, and Psychology); section 2 is titled Mind Objective (with subsections Law, The Morality of Consciousness and the Moral Life); and Section 3 Absolute Mind (Art, Revealed Religion, Philosophy). So Hegel follows the development of the human mind through the various layers of consciousness, then institutions and structures of society and finally through art, religion and philosophy. The classic translation by William Wallace is based on Hegel’s final 1830 version.
