There is a playlist I often listen to when cooking. It consists of three Michael Hedges albums less one song. It accompanied the haddock curry this evening and all I had to do was press the triangle again and now it accompanies my newsletter typing.

We have managed this year and we hope you have as well. One can only be grateful to be breathing well with fellow readers nearby. 

We still have Noah's Holiday Picks and I sincerely believe it is worth looking at if you haven't already. Do peruse the books we have this week. They are a mixture of brand new and not so new but all of them are very worthy of anyone's consideration. 

So, happy new year to you and yours. You are not alone, to be sure, but all of us are so masked up, and out of practice at socializing, to such an extent that one may need to be assertive in order to feel like a cozy member of the united many.

In any case. . .see you in 2021 and thank you very much.

Innovation + Equality: How to Create a Future That Is More Star Trek Than Terminator
Joshua Gans and Andrew Leigh

Is economic inequality the price we pay for innovation? The amazing technological advances of the last two decades—in such areas as artificial intelligence, genetics, and materials—have benefited society collectively and rewarded innovators handsomely: we get cool smartphones and technology moguls become billionaires. [More. . .]


A Philosophy of Madness: The Experience of Psychotic Thinking
Wouter Kusters

In this book, philosopher and linguist Wouter Kusters examines the philosophy of psychosis—and the psychosis of philosophy. By analyzing the experience of psychosis in philosophical terms, Kusters not only emancipates the experience of the psychotic from medical classification, he also emancipates the philosopher from the narrowness of textbooks and academia, allowing philosophers to engage in real-life praxis, philosophy in vivo. Philosophy and madness—Kusters's preferred, non-medicalized term—coexist, one mirroring the other.[More. . .]

Ambiguous Loss : Learning to Live with Unresolved Grief
Pauline Boss

A loved one is still alive, perhaps, yet lost to us: a soldier son missing in action, a mother in a distant country, a constantly traveling spouse. This is one kind of ambiguous loss that Boss describes, touching most movingly on the experience of immigrants, rooted in their new countries but forever homesick. In another kind of ambiguous loss, the loved one may be physically present but beyond our reach. Boss's most vivid example here is Alzheimer's disease, with its wrenching impact on patients' families. [More. . .]

Enchantment and Gestalt Therapy: Partners in Exploring Life
Erving Polster

Polster points ahead to a vision of a psychotherapy that includes the population as a whole rather than focusing on individuals, highlights common aspects of living, and focuses on creating an ethos for a shared understanding. The book outlines the six Gestalt therapy concepts that have formed the basis of Polster’s work and describes Life Focus Groups, with an emphasis on the communal relationship between tellers and listeners. Polster also describes the phenomenon of enchantment in psychotherapy in detail, with reference to his own experiences. [More. . .]
