Degenerate Moderns: Modernity as Rationalized Sexual Misbehaviour, E. Michael Jones
4 E. Michael Jones Degenerate Moderns: Modernity as Rationalized Sexual Misbehaviour
Ignatious Press 237068 San Francisco 1993 0898704472 / 9780898704471 Softcover Good Condition In this groundbreaking new book, Jones shows how some of the major determining leaders in modern thought and culture have rationalized their own immoral behavior and projected it onto a universal canvas. The main thesis of this book is that, in the intellectual life, there are only two ultimate alternatives: either the thinker conforms desire to truth or he conforms truth to desire.In the last one hundred years, the western cultural elite embarked upon a project which entailed the reversal of the values of the intellectual life so that truth would be subjected to desire as the final criterion of intellectual value. In looking at recent biographies of such major moderns as Freud, Kinsey, Keynes, Margaret Mead, Picasso, and others, there is a remarkable similarity between their lives and thought. After becoming involved in sexual license early on, they invariably chose an ideology or art form which subordinated reality to the exigencies of their sexual misbehavior. 260 pages.

The Women's Press 232546 Great Britain 1991 0704338629 / 9780704338623 Softcover Good Condition Nor Hall writes with a strikingly original perspective on women in myth and literature, examining and giving new meaning to the underlying archetypes. She explores such principles as androgyny and virginity, freeing them from the limited social context in which we have trapped them, and argues the necessity of feminine rituals in history. In her search for the original forms of the feminine, Hall guides us on a journey though myths and symbols, confronting them not in the rational mode of the language itself, but on the deeper level of the unconscious life. 282 pages.
