What is the relationship between the sacred and the political, transcendence and immanence, religion and violence? And how has this complex relation affected the history of Western political reason? In this volume an international group of scholars explore these questions in light of mimetic theory as formulated by René Girard (1923-2015), one of the most original thinkers of our time. From Aristotle and his idea of tragedy, passing through Machiavelli and political modernity, up to contemporary biopolitics, this work provides an indispensable guide to those who want to assess the thorny interconnections of sacrality and politics in Western political thought and follow an unexplored yet critical path from ancient Greece to our post-secular condition. While looking at the past, this volume also seeks to illuminate the future relevance of the sacred/secular divide in the so-called 'age of globalization'.

In the early stages of genetic modification, we need ethical guidelines more than ever, guidelines that could forebode or decree what is to come. That's where The Matrix comes in. The Inheritable Modification Matrix is the culmination of Marilyn Coors' examination of ethics, religion, and science in the context of human genetic modification. The Matrix identifies virtues, values, and principles that differentiate the beneficial uses of inheritable genetic modification from those that threaten the dignity of human life.

Shamanism is a spiritual path that emphasizes close connections with the immediate environment. As environments change, so too must shamanism change, but how can one distinguish between healthy innovation and corruptions of tradition? Coyote's Council Fire focuses on these and other controversial issues that have ignited the shamanic community. Drawing on her decades of involvement in that community, Loren Cruden brings calm wisdom and common sense to these subjects. Along with her perspective are the words of contributors such as Brooke Medicine Eagle, Grey Wolf, Jamie Sams, and Ed “Eagle Man” McGaa, reflecting the diversity of opinion within the Native American community, while the contributions of Nina Wolf, Axis, and Sandra Ingerman suggest the variety of ways in which non-Natives have incorporated shamanism into their lives. Throughout the book are meditations and exercises that help the reader explore his or her own attitudes and assumptions toward matters of race, gender, and community. For anyone interested in shamanism, Native American affairs, or the role of spirituality in a changing society, Coyote's Council Fire offers a provocative opportunity to examine one's own beliefs and compare them with those of leading members of the shamanic community.

Sanford Schwartz situates Modernist poetics in the intellectual ferment of the early twentieth century, which witnessed major developments in philosophy, science, and the arts. Beginning with the works of various philosophers--Bergson, James, Bradley, Nietzsche, and Husserl, among others--he establishes a matrix that brings together not only the principal characteristics of Modernist/New Critical poetics but also the affiliations between the Continental and the Anglo-American critical traditions. Originally published in 1985. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

A breakthrough in spiritual psychology, the reader begins with an orientation to self as a multidimensional being living fully aware in the fabric of life. Then, self takes us into a deeper discovery of how to transform the beliefs and traumas that distort the morphic field that holds the physical self. Through self forgiveness and energy techniques, we are able to deconstruct limitation and balance distortion thereby transforming our sense of self from ego to soul. In complete presence, our ability to see life through soul eyes makes available a power level of unconditional love that is the true transformer.
