9780195119459: The Seven Deadly Sins: Jewish, Christian, and Classical Reflections on Human Psychology

All of us are engaged in a personal, ongoing battle with sin and vice. The seven deadly sins - lust, greed, envy, anger, pride, gluttony, and sloth - are our main antagonists in this struggle. They are primary causes of unhappiness and immorality, and because of their pervasive nature, have been of perennial interest to religious thinkers, philosophers, dramatists, and poets.
In The Seven Deadly Sins, Solomon Schimmel explains why psychology must incorporate many of the ethical and spiritual values of religion and moral philosophy if it is to effectively address the emotional problems faced by modern men and women, be they believers or agnostics. Drawing on the psychological insights of the Bible, Aristotle, Maimonides, Aquinas, and Shakespeare, among others, he shows how all of us can learn from them about the relationship between virtue and psychological well-being and vice and emotional distress. This insightful and fascinating work guides us to master our passions rather than be enslaved by them so that we can become more humane and build a happier, caring society.

Recensione:

"An ardent and eloquent argument for bringing back the biblical notion of sin and putting it to work in our own benighted world....Challenging, even radical. Essentially, Schimmel questions the conventional wisdom of...psychotherapy."— Los Angeles Times

"Schimmel artfully weaves ideas from Judaism, classical philosophy, and Christianity to observe the ways the seven cardinal sins...are played out in the modern world....It is a scholarly rendering of ancient thought applied to modern times."— Contemporary Psychology

"Schimmel's examples are penetrating and pointed....Read this book. It is time and effort well spent....[He] is literate, insightful, and has a wonderful narrative style."— Rocky Mountain News

"This is a surprising, humane handbook for self-transformation."— Publishers Weekly

"This book mediates the moral wisdom of antiquity in a very useful and engaging way. It shows that the temptations to which we are all subject do not change. What does change is our willingness to recognize and overcome them. Few of us can afford not to read this book."—Jon D. Levenson, Harvard University

"A well-argued attack on value-free theories of psychoanalysis for general religion and psychology collections."— Library Journal

"A useful study.... The book is welcome and valuable, especially for teachers."— Horizons

L'autore:

Solomon Schimmel is a professor of Jewish education and psychology at Hebrew College in Brookline, Massachusetts and a practicing psychotherapist. He was named a 1998 Fulbright Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.9in.All of us are engaged in a personal, ongoing battle with sin and vice. The seven deadly sins--lust, greed, envy, anger, pride, gluttony, and sloth--are our main antagonists in this struggle. They are primary causes of unhappiness and immorality, and because of their pervasive nature, have been of perennial interest to religious thinkers, philosophers, dramatists, and poets. Although our anger doesnt make most of us murderers, our lust doesnt make most of us rapists, and our greed and envy dont make most of us outright criminals, they, together with gluttony, arrogance, and sloth, often make us, and those who have to live with us, miserable. One need only read the daily paper to see that these seven sins are alive and well, deadlier than ever, spawning violence and suffering, illness and anxiety, loss of meaning and depression. An arrogant yuppie considers suicide after losing his job on Wall Street, which had been the fragile basis of his false pride. A distinguished senator and a prominent judge destroy their careers and wound their female victims with their lust. Millions of men and women, distraught about their body image, subject themselves to liposuction, breast and hair implants because of their gluttony or vanity. People at the pinnacle of economic power fall into the abyss of prison because they could not control their avarice. In The Seven Deadly Sins, Solomon Schimmel explains why psychology must incorporate many of the ethical and spiritual values of religion and moral philosophy if it is to effectively address the emotional problems faced by modern men and women, be they believers or agnostics. Drawing on the psychological insights of the Bible, Aristotle, Maimonides, Aquinas, and Shakespeare, among others, he shows how all of us can learn from them about the relationship between virtue and psychological well-being and vice and emotional distress. This insightful and fascinating work guides us to master our passions rather than be enslaved by them so that we can become more humane and build a happier, caring society.
