11. Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 2 (Spring 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Young Velikovsky: From Bergson to Berger Duane Vorhees Without denying to psychology, any more than to metaphysics, the right to make itself into an independent science, we believe that each of these two sciences should set problems to the other and can, in a ... Leipzig colleague, astronomer Carl Friedrich Zollner, over the question of spiritism and the existence of a fourth dimension; Wundt went so far as to change the name of his pioneering psychological journal from Psychologische Studien to Philosophische Studien because another journal with the original title existed which dealt with "the obnoxious topic of spiritism and other parapsychological phenomena".(11) ... , laboratory experiments, or field work. Like many other intellectual pioneers, Velikovsky used a theoretical rather than experiential approach. Certainly Velikovsky was not the first- or last- psychologist to concern himself with questions of metaphysics or occultism. For instance, Hans Berger, the pioneer in human electroencephalography, had barely escaped certain death during a military exercise while still ...
12. Velikovsky and Racial Memory [Aeon Journal $]
... . For example, at one point Freud discussed the phenomenon of rejection followed by rapid, near-universal acceptance of certain ideas. (2) To demonstrate this "process in group psychology," he tried to find an analogous one in individual psychology. Rejecting the model of a person being confronted with evidence of something which "he ought to recognize as true ... work in the area-- to buttress his arguments. (The only major exception was his demonstration that Nebuchadnezzar and Hattusilis were the same person psychologically: Even then, the psychological argument was secondary to historiographic ones.) I have already suggested that Velikovsky felt compelled to reorder history in order to refute Freud's notion that Akhnaton-- not Moses-- ... or even referred to his own work in the area-- to buttress his arguments.

... at once. Things cannot have begun to signify gradually. After a transformation the study of which has no relevance in the field of social sciences, but only in biology or psychology, a change has taken place, from a stage where nothing had meaning to a stage where everything had." [2 This is a surprising use of the word " ... . It is both genetic and adaptive. It is fully determined. It is unbreakable. Evidence of these statements gushes from history and anthropology on the one side and from many psychological schools on the other. Just as the brain can reach to the toe to express itself physiologically, it can reach to the stars to express itself psychologically. Where it happens ... had meaning to a stage where everything had." [2 This is a surprising use of the word "relevance." Once we have understood what was happening biologically and psychologically, we comprehend what was happening socially. A quantavolution introducing language must concurrently involve a grasping for logic, for control over memory, and for the social consensus on meanings from ...
14. Historical Paradise and Collective Psychology [Horus $]
... From: Horus Vol. 1 No. 3 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Historical Paradise and Collective Psychology Richard Heinberg Virtually all ancient peoples believed that they were descendents of superior beings who inhabited an earthly paradise. The ancients held that the first human beings were perfect and godlike and that mankind, rather than having evolved, has instead degenerated ... the fashion among scholars for the past century or more to collect these ancient paradise myths carefully but to deny them historical validity. Instead, they interpret them as symbols of unconscious psychological processes either unique to early man, or common to all human beings of all generations. Typical of this approach is Theodore Reik's suggestion that Golden Age mythology is a metaphor for ... lose ground. Even Theodore Reik says, [Myths appeared to us [psychoanalysts at first as collective daydreams, as wish fulfillments of the masses. Such a characterization is still psychologically valid, but we apply today the interpretation of myths in the hope of discovering at their depths precipitations or sediments of real historical events or situations. According to Reik and others ...
15. Chapter 2: THE SEARCH FOR LOST INSTINCT [Quantavolution Website]
... psychologists would like to rid themselves of the concept of "fear," believing it to be vague and operationally undefinable. But, as Jeffrey Gray puts it, "Experimental psychology as well as common sense has been forced to invent the hypothesis of a complex psychological state, 'fear,' precisely in order to make sense out of the otherwise shifting and ... , the poly-self will remain a theoretical construct, out of the realm of the common sense. It will help to understand human behavior, however, and have powerful applications in psychological therapy and law. It will, among other things, clarify an idea that is to be found in a many "primitive" and "advanced" cultures, that a ... , "little systematic research has been applied to the nature of what are sometimes called existential fears." [12 As with the concepts of human nature and instinct, many psychologists would like to rid themselves of the concept of "fear," believing it to be vague and operationally undefinable.

... not initiate the profession in the Holy Land until 1933, only a year before Erich Neumann began practicing C. G. Jung's rival, "gentile," method of analytical psychology there. Since he was the only practicing analyst there until he left in 1939, he was apparently the "Dr. S." referred to by Arnold Zweig in the ... Merton once summarized two different approaches toward understanding the mutual interaction between self and society: The European focuses on the structural determinants of thought; the American, on the social and psychological consequences of the diffusion of opinion. The one centers on the source, the other on the result. The European asks, how does it come to be that these particular ... one of the zeros from Plato's date for the destruction of Atlantis, serious investigators have been allowed to encroach upon grounds perennially reserved for the occultists. At the same time, psychologists have examined ancient texts to devise theories about the origin of human consciousness. All of these discoveries and hypotheses were pioneered by Velikovsky. Since 1950, much has occurred which tends ...
17. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER SIX: THE CHARISMA OF MOSES [Quantavolution Website]
... . It corresponds to the real images of the external world during natural catastrophe and the feelings normally inspired by the images. In the case of Moses, and generally in the psychology of catastrophe, the real and the unreal confirm and reinforce each other; they interact, but so in tandem are they that when the real pulls ahead of the unreal ( ... Time after time, Moses imposes rules and hardship upon others in the name of Yahweh. His famous meekness, which the Bible stresses and his biographers claim to find is in psychological terms the "meekness" of an inhibited rage type, who cannot trust his deep passions to public display. He insists, in effect, that he cannot help himself, ... Freud's first act, when he arrived in Rome on a long-delayed trip, was to go view the heroic statue of Moses done by Michelangelo. It was, I say, psychologically easier for Freud to claim that Moses was all-Egyptian than to think sociologically and psychologically of the obvious possibility that Moses was half-Egyptian and half-Jewish. "How much" easier can be ...

... purposes" from Bernard Barber; "both fascinating... and important... a splendid account," from Hadley Cantril; "beautifully makes the point about the psychology of scientists... grateful" from James C. Davies, a "signal service" from Arthur S. Miller; "a superb example of the sociology of knowledge ... water resource depletion, and new chemical diseases. In the middle of advances, regressions are minimized or even denied scornfully. Obviously the scientific process is largely understandable by sociological and psychological analysis. Deg did not enjoy any illusion that there would be a direct rational line from publicizing V .'s poor reception in the sciences to the acceptance of his views and their ... ? Every generalization of science implies a stereotype, to take another case. Must we then never generalize? Later, Norman Storer and others picked up the theme, which social psychologists might best appreciate, most historians of science being too narrowly educated for such subtleties, or too constrained to deal with them. By the way, Lucca Cavazzo [an Italian ...
19. Cosmic Heretics [Aeon Journal $]
... most famous heroes of antiquity. Nor are they of the so numerous type of military heroes. They are the active substances of the raging intellect, flourishing amongst squirmy snakes of psychology and religion. Should the temporal sequence be right, then the book would be valid, that Moses preceded Akhnaton and Akhnaton came before Oedipus. The legendary, historical, psychological ... archaeological evidence marched in brilliant composition and concordance on behalf of V .'s thesis. That Moses had come first follows from V .'s book, Ages in Chaos, already a decade old, which was to be read and to convince Deg in a matter of weeks. That the Oedipus legend developed after the history of Akhnaton was established in the book itself to ... ; the roundabout way in which the books were published; and many other intervening and confusing variables concealed the essentially proper progression of V .'s mind, which behaved in ways both psychologically understandable and logically proper. (Often, private motives lead men scientifically astray; here, as sometimes happens, V .'s private motives led him along the path to significant scientific ...

... are not given by V. (see p. 207 of Mankind and Amnesia) and therefore the statement will hardly perform the miracle. I can hardly believe that he says psychology and sociology had nothing to say about the Jonestown (Guyana) massacre and mass suicide, yet he does say so, whereas the dynamics of this event were crystal clear to ... may well be characterized as an interest in the true reconstruction of mankind's genetic history, and thus also of geologic and, in part, cosmic history... Developing Velikovsky's psychological inceptions, the goal-- of bringing home to collective consciousness the realistic conception of the world, as opposed by the present mania holding sway over cultural evolution-- would ... It was deeply disturbing. The matter could be put syllogistically: Historic catastrophes resulted in severe collective amnesia; the world's peoples, having suppressed their memories of catastrophe, are compelled psychologically to recreate the conditions for reliving them; thus emerge warfare, massacre, self-destruction and the destruction of others, man-made holocausts. Whereupon one reasons: the Germans, like all ...
