172. THE DEVINE SUCCESSION: PART II. THEOTROPY: CHAPTER NINE: SACRAL VS. SECULAR MAN [Quantavolution Website]
... sacralizes. A thorough moral defense of religion from the standpoint of its expression through sacral man has not appealed to modern writers. Such old and religiously circumscribed works as Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress will hardly do for these days, when the field instruments of sociology, biology, psychology, economics and political science need to be orchestrated for the purpose. Available are negative critiques of ritual and assaults upon the supernatural. But where are the moral scientific (as opposed to merely sociological) studies of the Baptist and the Secularist living on the same ... requires, more accounting.Everything is immediately divided, sub-divided, classified, numbered off in annotations, meditations, weeks, points, exercises, mysteries, etc. [That is, The Exercises can be conceived as a desperate struggle against the dispersal of images which psychologically, they say, marks mental experience and over which-- every religion agrees-- only an extremely rigorous method can triumph." The whole aim and process is a totalitarian domination of the mind for the purpose of putting oneself into a position to ask ...
173. THE DISASTROUS LOVE AFFAIR OF MOON AND MARS: PART THREE: THERAPY FOR GROUP FEAR, CHAPTER 14 [Quantavolution Website]
... of myth that we have dug out and can apply with predictable effects. Just as the athlete, poet, orator, and composer may not know the scientific rules of their successful performances, so the myth-teller and myth-hearer will not usually understand what rules of linguistics and psychology he is applying. The most important of these unconscious rules, all of them practiced and evident in the Love Affair, are perhaps the following: 1. Make a myth of any collectively experienced event that had tragic consequences in order to give symptomatic relief to ... to operations (operationalists). Others, their opposites, insist upon the correspondence of words to ideal images (idealists, Platonists); to them the contradiction is anathema. It is intolerable, unphilosophical, confusing, meaningless. To the anthropologist, psychoanalyst, and psychological linguist, however, it is the veriest grist for the mill. METER AND METAPHOR Homer's 28,000 lines were six-footed, the hexameter, which Paul Maas [1 renders schematically and typically as: Each of the six long, stress syllables is followed by ...
174. Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years [Aeon Journal $]
... to Jupiter, that Richard Haines of NASA Ames Research Center and I got together for lunch, and he was given a copy of my most recent column in Industrial Research (now Research& Development) wherein I had mentioned Velikovsky. Haines, whose background is in psychology with emphasis on eye-brain interaction phenomena, was coincidentally at the time reading Worlds in Collision. He was sufficiently impressed with the scholarship of the book so that our conversation turned to the speculation as to whether NASA Ames would consider inviting Velikovsky to the West Coast for ... ourselves to stochastic whims over which we have no control. The turbulent vagaries of nature, throughout the intensity spectrum from the microscopic to the cosmic, are reflected by emulation in man's comparatively brief but violent history. And, as such, natural events deeply affect our psychological well-being, and therefore our often ambiguous decision-making. This in turn feeds on the xenophobic fears and hatreds of that which we can't understand. Thus the cycle is continually renewed with each event as a potent reminder of the cataclysms which went before, until we are ...
175. QUANTAVOLUTION: COSMIC HERETICS: Part 3: Chapter 12: THE THIRD WORLD OF SCIENCE [Quantavolution Website]
... Sometimes they sprang to life to extend invitations to V. to speak at various places, or they were used as a letterhead denomination when rebuking critics. It was, for example, on 'Cosmos and Chronos' stationery that the Philadelphia disciple and high school teacher of psychology, Robert Stephanos, addressed the Franklin Society in seeking to arrange a lecture invitation to Velikovsky. When the Society reconsidered and hastily closed its gates to V., it brought a certain public disgrace upon itself. Inspired though he was by his association with new ... a different policy; and it is good that you brought the situation into the open. Your memo, however, is full of inexactitudes; knowing you for pedantically accurate, I wonder at your rendition of our conversation. The only explanation I would know, is psychological: your opposition to the idea of the Foundation-- or only to the dichotomy (you use the term 'duplicity'), and that can be a subconscious urge during your writing. (...) The sentence in your memo that obviously outraged ...

... is nothing to be lost by a public discussion of the issues, especially the issue of freedom to publish, and nothing to be gained by defending that through threats to suppress it. With best regards, Cordially Yours, Herbert A. Simon Professor of Administration and Psychology After much deliberation and testing of the winds, Rabinowitch wrote to Deg: 25 June 1964 Dear Mr. de Grazia: In answer to your letter of May 12, I do not see why, and in what form, the Bulletin should "withdraw its ... say only of the distinguished group of scholars who passed on the ABS special issue on the Velikovsky Affair that none was a scientist gives a completely misleading idea to the reader. Lasswell was one of the founders of quantitative method in behavioral science. Cantril was a distinguished psychologist and expert on systematic opinion analysis; etc. Nor does he stress that Harry Hess, who is sometimes regarded as having been the leading geologist of the past generation, was a thoroughly sympathetic friend of Velikovsky. Hess and I talked on two or three occasions ...
178. Psychoceramics [Aeon Journal $]
... has become a sticky bone in the craw of many scientists that such uncertainty has classically been the hallmark of scientific endeavor. This might explain in some measure why the hard science folk look down on the softer science people in disciplines such as commerce, history, or psychology, and even in such "firm" fields as meteorology and seismology, because hard science's rigorous probability stochastics has a mathematical leg up on most of the others-- and there is indeed a tendency for leaders in the field to professionally micturate on their lesser ... juices. An occasional dose of this aesthetic catharsis has had something of a beneficial and purgative effect on stodgy thinking. But this also can be too much of a good thing, as most folks can only stand for so much technological development at one sitting and become psychologically fatigued with an overabundance of new and radical ideas, or even with the prevailing plenitude of today's new high-tech toys. Economist Alvin Toffler delineated this in some detail two decades ago in his 500-page study, that would itself have been much less fatiguing for the reader ...
179. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART FOUR: POLEMICS AND PERSONAGES: CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO: MARX, ENGELS, AND DARWIN [Quantavolution Website]
... ideologies and practices (cf. The Velikovsky Affair) have suggested to him other similar cases such as the present one of Marx and Engels. The use of Catastrophists, Uniformitarians, and Socialists for case study leads in turn to a larger interest in the sociology and psychology of science. The opportunity is extraordinary, for Marx and Engels were interested third parties to the widespread conflict of many years between Uniformitarians and Catastrophists. How they made up their minds to support the former, and to what extent they would support them, are ... establishing the "circumstantial evidence" for the character of the missing pieces of the puzzle. The three paradigms of Uniformitarian, Catastrophist, and Marxian thought will have to be originally constructed, though with reference to numerous works. The specific question of the research- the psychological dynamics of Marx and Engels in "adopting" the uniformitarian model in whole or in part- has not, to the knowledge of the investigator here, been asked before. The obvious "answer" given or implied in numerous places in the literature, that ...
180. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... culture. A doctor of medicine, he applied the tools of psychoanalysis to entire societies and movements. Seeking to identify the cultural mechanisms and behavioural patterns through which the traumas of the past were expressed from generation to generation, Rix opened up a new frontier in mass psychology. To him, the forces of history were not blind and purposeless. Even apparently stray, unconnected personal habits or cultural events were part of wide, meaningful patterns that could be read. Born in Vienna, Rix experienced at first hand the horrors of Nazi ... ." It was with deep regret that we learned of the death of Dr Zvi Rix in Rehovot, Israel, on 11th January 1981 after a long illness. Dr Rix's articles in Kronos and SIS Review were the visible tip of a significant attempt to explore the psychological legacies of past catastrophes in human culture. A doctor of medicine, he applied the tools of psychoanalysis to entire societies and movements. Seeking to identify the cultural mechanisms and behavioural patterns through which the traumas of the past were expressed from generation to generation, Rix ...
