Keck, L. Robert
Robert Keck's new science of the collective human soul's evolutionary journey makes sense of current, world-wide paradigm shifts and faith-quakes, and it promotes our participation in spiritual emergence. Scientists, examining "Lucy's" ancient remains, learned much about how she lived, but nothing about what she valued in her heart. Keck's original "Deep-value Research", going beyond science, investigates the deep causal values that shape human cultures and determine why certain thought and behaviour become dominant. Despite our longing for stability and predictability, science suggests that the universe is not a steady-state reality. Keck's research suggests a similarity in the spiritual realm: change, evolution, and transformation are basic ingredients of the soul's history. Keck's model divides the soul's evolution into three stages. Epoch I, lasting from about 35,000 to 10,000 years ago, corresponds to "childhood". Epoch II, from 10,000 years ago to the present, is the soul's "adolescence." We are now experiencing the chaos of the transformation to Epoch III, our spiritual adulthood. Keck explains the unique confusion within which we live by identifying those spiritually adolescent values that are dying and those adult ones being born. "Questions for those on a quest", which conclude each chapter, encourage us to seek the meaning and purpose of our connections-to other people, to nature, and to the Spirit that creates, permeates, and sustains the universe. 292pp. N.B. Rear free end paper creased. D/J slightly marked and rubbed.

Said, Edward W.
A 'beginning,' especially as embodied in much modern thought, is its own method, Edward Said argues in this classic treatise on the role of the intellectual and the goal of criticism. Distinguishing between 'origin', which is divine, mythical, and privileged, and 'beginning,' which is secular and humanly produced, Said traces the ramifications and diverse understandings of the concept of beginning through history. A beginning is a first step in the intentional production of meaning and the production of difference from preexisting traditions. It authorizes subsequent texts - it both enables them and limits what is acceptable. Drawing on the insights of Vico, Valery, Nietzsche, Saussure, Levi-Strauss, Husserl, and Foucault, Said recognizes the novel as the major attempt in Western literary culture to give beginnings an authorizing function in experience, art, and knowledge.Scholarship should see itself as a beginning - as a uniting of theory and practice. Said's insistence on a criticism that is humane and socially responsible is what makes "Beginnings" a book about much more than writing: it is about imagination and action as well as the constraints on freedom and invention that come from human intention and the method of its fulfillment. 414pp. N.B.
