When Women Kill

Coramae Richey Mann

“Collected from police files, homicide records, FBI reports and criminal information. Research analysis reveals a fascinating profile of today’s female murderer.” The crimes, they are a-changin’: “‘The issue… is whether there have been changes over time to the extent in which victims were strangers. The image of a new breed of female killer suggests a trend toward violence against strangers, where the offender is motivated by greed or a love of violence itself.” In-depth research, stats, charts, percentages, the works. Surprising conclusions. GR

Autism and the Crisis of Meaning

Alexander Durig

“This book promotes the notion that understanding meaningful perception and autistic perception will shed light on the human experience in ways that will have clear ramifications for a resolution of the crisis of meaning. Although neither the topics of meaningful perception nor autistic perception are well understood today, they can no longer be ignored. It is hoped that the use of informal logic to conceptualize a logic-based approach to meaningful perception and autistic perception will signal a turn in society's meaningful perception of itself.”

Changes of Mind: A Holonomic Theory of the Evolution of Consciousness

Jenny Wade

“An extensive body of philosophical research uniting literature from the new physics, brain research, developmental psychology and mysticism producing the first comprehensive theory of individual human consciousness that begins before birth and ends after death. A new-paradigm reality that opens and extends the field of developmental psychology in ways that structure, destructure and then restructure the subjective experience of time, space, subject and object.”

Inner Experience

Georges Bataille

“By inner experience I understand that to mean what one usually calls mystical experience, the states of ecstasy of rapture, at least of meditated emotion. But I am thinking less of confessional experience, to which one has had to adhere up to now, than of an experience laid bare, free of ties, even of an origin, of any confession whatever. This is why I don’t like the word mystical… We are totally laid bare by proceeding without trickery to the unknown. It is the measure of the unknown which lends to the experience of God—or of the poetic—their great authority. But the unknown demands in the end sovereignty without partition.”
