The reality of the devil: evil in man by Ruth Nanda Anshen( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Devil has stalked the imagination of Western man as the personification of Evil, and The Reality of the Devil is an acutely perceptive study of the satanic condition. Dr. Anshen's book rids us of devilish misconceptions, leading us to perceive Satan as a great power in his own realm, a realm in which he is deadly serious in his effort to save and preserve the individual personality at any cost. To opt for God, however, precludes the utter loneliness guaranteed by alliance with the Devil. There is greatness on both sides, says the author, the choice is ours."--Back cover

The mystery of consciousness : a prescription for human survival by Ruth Nanda Anshen( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ruth Nanda Anshen is one of the world's foremost living philosophers. This brilliant treatise challenges traditional science's belief that human consciousness is something that can be measured and quantified. Indeed, argues Dr. Anshen, consciousness is and will remain a mystery and should be treated as such."--BOOK JACKET. "Consciousness is many things. It bestows upon humans the ability to interpret outside signs - to think. It allows us the power to establish the value of a perceived object - to feel. Consciousness embodies intuition, making it possible for humans to establish relationships between subjects and objects, thus moving away from passive acceptance of the world around them. However, Dr. Anshen believes that traditional science, in its effort to study consciousness, only fragments it and thus negates its very nature."--BOOK JACKET. ""Science itself, even neurobiology, cannot solve the mystery of consciousness which cannot, should not, be submitted to empirical investigation or examination." Ultimately Dr. Anshen argues that consciousness should be understood as a moral state, which allows "our freedom of choice, our will to choose either Good or Evil through our awareness of both.""--BOOK JACKET

To have or to be? by Erich Fromm( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in French and English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Avoir ou être? " Le dilemme posé par Erich Fromm n'est pas nouveau. Mais pour l'auteur, du choix que l'humanité fera entre ces deux modes d'existence dépend sa survie même. Car notre monde est de plus en plus dominé par la passion de l'avoir, concentré sur l'acquisivité, la puissance matérielle, l'agressivité, alors que seul le sauverait le mode de l'être, fondé sur l'amour, l'accomplissement spirituel, le plaisir de partager des activités significatives et fécondes. Si l'homme ne prend pas conscience de la gravité de ce choix, il courra au-devant d'un désastre psychologique et écologique sans précédent
