Medicine, Mythology and Spirituality Recollecting the Past and Willing the Future

By: TWENTYMAN, RALPH

Price: $32.95

Publisher: United Kingdom, Rudolf Steiner Press: 2004

Seller ID: 11713

ISBN: 1855841827


In his discussion of the art of healing, Ralph Twentyman places the problems of modern medicine in the context of the evolution of consciousness and the modern crisis of selfhood and community. He relates this to today's all-too-common experience of loneliness in relation to the experience of individuality. In contrast, he points to the dawning vision of humankind as a "true being" it itself -- a living organism. The illnesses that characterize our time are looked at within the context of these birth pangs of a new era of evolution and consciousness. [When referring to this item ... View more info

Embryogenesis in Myth and Science

By: WEIHS, THOMAS J

Price: $43.95

Publisher: Floris Books:

Seller ID: 930

ISBN: 0863156711


Embryology has evolved from myth in early cultures, who knew little about the details of conception and pregnancy, to the height of modern scientific knowledge. Thomas Weihs argues persuasively that new scientific understanding of embryology could engender a new mythology, and that, in fact, science and myth are complementary aspects of the study of new life. He explores the correspondence between the creation story in Genesis, and other creation myths, with the development of the human embryo, and also discusses how the intuitive heart-felt values we associate with pregnancy and bir...

Beyond the Medical Meltdown demonstrates that there is enough quality health care and enough money to pay for it, that more drugs and surgery is not necessarily better, and that the present health care quandary does not need to be the way it is. But to see this and to change health care will require enough people to wake up, think outside the box, and take action. We are on a threshold. Health care as we have known it is dying. What we have come to see as "normal" medicine is not "healthy" medicine. To quote Dr. John Abramson of Harvard, we have an "overdo$ed America." ... View more info
