  • Origins of the Human Mind

    • ORIGINAL (12 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By The Great Courses
    • Narrated By Professor Stephen P. Hinshaw

    This 24-lecture series is your guide to the latest information and viewpoints on what scientists know about this fascinating subject. Taught by an award-winning teacher whose training as a clinical psychologist straddles both the science of the mind and its impact on individual lives, their comprehensive approach reveals how that science applies to the life of our species - and to your own life as well. The lectures explore theories about how the mind works on both an evolutionary and individual scale.

    "Sensational, w/ intellectually stimulating info"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Each 21 talks, built upon the other in salient information & emotional intensity, Dr. Hinshaw carefully pulled his tightly woven fabric from 21 previous sectional topics, stepping into is crescendo in 22 & 23, where all tears & remaining promises become actualized.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The depth, breath, & magnitude of issues presented, busted further during the 2 concluding lectures, demonstrated a great, unusual familiarity with current scientific data, & synthesizing ideas & facts by his lectures.

    What about Professor Stephen P. Hinshaw’s performance did you like?

    Dr. Hinshaw skillfully demonstrated, the exact qualities other academics, many amongst our leading minds, lack in professionals breath, in-depth understanding, rare in intellectual character & maturity.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Already familiar with topic, never expected to pick up new data. I'm impressed with Hinshaw's personal appeal for narrative integration of Self with learned content.

    Any additional comments?

    Mental health professionals & academics, such as Hinshaw, are notorious for saying one thing & doing another. This is not the case for Dr. Hinshaw's neuro-phenomenological perspective wherein knowledge is cognitively embedded & embodied, plus holds these values overtly & includes message in his lectures.

  • People of the Lie Vol. 1: Toward a Psychology of Evil

    • ABRIDGED (1 hr and 29 mins)
    • By M. Scott Peck
    • Narrated By M. Scott Peck, M. Scott Peck

    Dr. M. Scott Peck has inspired millions by combining the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In this first of a three volume audio series based on his best-selling book People of the Lie, Dr. Peck once again integrates religious teaching with the science of psychology as he offers hope for healing one of society's most persistent failings -- human evil.

    D. Diderot says: "A Sentimental Journey"
    "A Sentimental Journey"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Any friend looking for an idealized view of inverasity from a folk psychological perspective; this would be the perfect title. Scott Peck has indeed taken "the road less traveled", since modern neuroscience began to inform us psychologically.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Peck's discussion of a dishonest patient.

    What does M. Scott Peck and M. Scott Peck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dr. Scott Peck brings a blast from the past. It was valuable for me to familiarize again, our culture's pre-scienticic era, circa 1880 to 1985. Dr. Peck is the cultural icon for the bygone era, that still serves our general population.

    Do you think People of the Lie Vol. 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am fairly sure this volume was adequate.

    Any additional comments?

    I hope the neuroscience texts will offer more actual insight in socially discordant people.
