Re-thinking, Re-visioning, Re-Placing
by Theo A Cope
From Neoplatonism to Bahá'í in a Jung way. Part of the George Ronald Bahá'í Studies Series.
'The teachers of the Cause must be . . . embodied spirit, personified intellect . . .' 'Abdu'l-Bahá
An excursion into the realm of ideas - a challenging, demanding and thought-provoking book.
The two works presented here, 'Heart Thoughts' and 'A Place for a Psychological Philosophy' are an attempt to rethink ideas which have persisted in Western philosophy and metaphysics for millennia.
Inspired by the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith, on the one hand the book introduces to a Bahá'í audience some of the ideas of the Swiss psychiatrist Dr Carl Jung and on the other challenges the present followers of Jung to base the psyche upon the spiritual dimension of existence.
'Cope sets out to relate the worlds of concepts, ideas, imagination, thoughts, to the worlds of soul, spirit, mind, heart and thence to psychology, philosophy, religion, the Bahá'í Faith. His grasp of the subject, both historically and conceptually, is clearly immense, his logic sensible, his hundreds of sources impeccable.'
