Being Human: Perspectives on Meaning and Interpretation : Essays in Religion, Culture, and Personality
Running the gamut from the analysis of Freud s pleasure principle to Teilhard de Chardin s ecological mysticism, this latest collection of John Morgan s philosophical anthropology addresses a wide range of conceptual frameworks for the understanding of what it means to be human. Perspectives on meaning and interpretation are presented from systematic probings into religion, culture, and personality using meaning itself as the hermeneutical instrument for investigation. Freud, Tillich, Geertz, Berger, Heschel, and Mannheim are among the systems of thought investigated within the context of both Heideggerian metaphysics and Franklian psychology informed by Hassidic mysticism.
