download Audible New Gnosis Author Roberts Avens –

If someone ever asked me how something can be real that isn t a thing i.e a being , I d give them this book The ultimate unity isn t a thing, but a dance, a play. The introduction was exceptionally helpful the book is good, but best to have read a fair amount of Hillman and Heidegger first Actually, I wish I had read Henri Corbin before now but that was better handled for a beginner than the Heidegger I didn t care for Avens constant use of internal quotations and would have preferredparaphrasing to help the text hang together in acohesive voice. Gnosis, in the hands of Roberts Avens, is a perennial philosophy of the heart He provides a readable, uncomplicated, and reliable introduction to the Gnosis going on today in the poetical thought of Martin Heidegger and the archetypal psychology of James Hillman As a psychological philosopher, Avens brings fresh meanings to basic gnostic ideas about angels, salvation through knowledge, and the world as alive and ensouled Therapies that encourage personified images and ecology movements concerned with the soul in things can find here a profound philosophical ground in The New Gnosis
