Where Does Mind End? A Radical History of Consciouness & The Awakened Self :From Freud to Gurdjieff
Scott Cluthe interviews Marc Seifer, Ph.D., as they take atrip to the the uoter and inner limits of what is labeled, "The Mind". Marc comments on his latest book, "In the 1970's, I began a serious study of the work of Sigmund Freud. My teacher at the time was Bruno Bettelheim, the world's leading psychoanalyst.
As I began to study Freud's model of mind, it began to occur to me that such a construct could be used as the basis of a more far-reaching model that could integrate Gurdjieff's ideas on will psychology and the higher states of consciousness.
Along the way, additional theories on the nature of consciousness have been integrated as well, including the thinking of such great philosophers as Zoroaster, Pythagoras, Aristotle, Descartes, Leibniz, Carl Jung, Wilhelm Reich and Rudolf Steiner."
It's good to talk.
