Enquiry On The Anima, Alan A. Mackenzie Nov 2006

Enquiry On The Anima, Alan A. Mackenzie

Alan A MacKENZIE

At midlife one tends to see life differently; in that, the meaning and purpose of the first half of life begins to fail us… and our whole agenda changes. Reaching midlife for many of my clients brings with it feelings of fracturing, alienation and lustiness. This paper is a reflective examination of how midlife changes bring out what Jung emphasized about the anima's role: as that factor in the male psyche responsible for the process of projection, not just for projections of and onto women- but all projection.


Caught In A Compromising Position: The Biblical Exegesis And Characterization Of Biblical Protagonists In Syriac Dialogue Hymns, Kristi Upson-Saia Jul 2006

Caught In A Compromising Position: The Biblical Exegesis And Characterization Of Biblical Protagonists In Syriac Dialogue Hymns, Kristi Upson-Saia

Kristi Upson-Saia

Syriac Dialogue hymns have been an important part of East and West Syriac liturgy since at least the middle of the century CE. The hymns perform a distinctive method of biblical interpretation "freeze frame" exegesis that expands biblical narratives in order to garner scriptural support for contemporary Christological positions. While providing useful theological training, however, the hymns convey several compromised portrayals of biblical protagonists, which are striking when compared with Greek and Latin treatments of the same figures.

Angels As Spiritual Guides, David San Filippo Ph.D.

David San Filippo Ph.D.

The existence of angels has been discussed for centuries in legendary, philosophical, and religious writings. Many people have reported encounters with angels at different times in their life. Near-death research has recorded angelic encounters, during near-death experiences, by describing encounters with beings of light or angelic forms recognizable to the experiencer. This essay will discuss some legendary, theological, and philosophical beliefs that support the belief in the reality of angels as messengers, guides, and guardians to human beings and their function as spiritual guides during near-death experiences.

The Alleged Pragmatism Of T.S. Eliot, Gregory Brazeal Jan 2006

The Alleged Pragmatism Of T.S. Eliot, Gregory Brazeal

Gregory Brazeal

Before gaining recognition as a poet, T.S. Eliot pursued a doctoral degree in philosophy. His dissertation on the philosophy of F.H. Bradley has been a source of longstanding critical dispute. Some read the dissertation as a defense of Bradley’s views, while others read it as a repudiation of Bradley in favor of a kind of American philosophical pragmatism. This essay considers whether the dissertation can be properly characterized as pragmatist, despite Eliot’s enthusiastic and repeated dismissals of William James’ philosophy of truth. Eliot comes closest to a Jamesian view of belief when he writes of the ...


Cakes, Rape And Power Games: A Feminist Reading Of Story Of Tamar (1 Samuel 13:1-19, Mussa Muneja Jan 2006

Cakes, Rape And Power Games: A Feminist Reading Of Story Of Tamar (1 Samuel 13:1-19, Mussa Muneja

Mussa Muneja

This paper examines avidly the trends of male power and how it affects negatively the disadvantaged, who are mostly females. It uses the case of Tamar in the Old Testament to make its argument in relevance to people who live in the 2 I" century. The essay employs feminist methods of Biblical interpretation.

The Catholic Second Amendment, David B. Kopel Jan 2006

The Catholic Second Amendment, David B. Kopel

David B Kopel

At the beginning of the second millennium, there was no separation of church and state, and kings ruled the church. Tyrannicide was considered sinful. By the end of the thirteenth century, however, everything had changed. The Little Renaissance that began in the eleventh century led to a revolution in political and moral philosophy, so that using force to overthrow a tyrannical government became a positive moral duty. The intellectual revolution was an essential step in the evolution of Western political philosophy that eventually led to the American Revolution.
