If Kevin Shepherd's previously reviewed book, Meaning in Anthropos (), is a concise Minds and sociocultures book of the methodology of anthropography, then the current book under review, Minds and Sociocultures (), is the result of the application of that research strategy to the study of religions.5/5(2).

Sociocultural Studies of Mind addresses the question of how mental functioning is related to the cultural, historical, and institutional settings in which it takes place. There are three unifying ideas that run through the volume: 1) one of the basic ways that sociocultural setting shapes Price: $ Sociocultural Studies of Mind addresses the primary question: how is mental functioning related to the cultural, historical, and institutional settings in which it exists.

Although the contributors speak from different perspectives, there is a clear set of unifying themes that run through the volume: 1. This article comprises an abridged and adapted version of chapter in my Minds and Sociocultures Vol.

One: Zoroastrianism and the Indian Religions (), pp. That book attempted a detailed and historical coverage of religious traditions, as distinct from the treatments found in popular "new age" and "transpersonal" literature.

In short, Culture in Minds and Societies: Foundations of Cultural Psychology presents a new look at the relationship between people and society, produces a semiotic theory of cultural psychology and provides a dynamic Minds and sociocultures book of culture in human lives.

My longest book was Minds and Sociocultures; that work was not published by me but by a freelance agent with experience of the book trade (I subsequently gained the distribution rights years later). See further Reasons for self published works.

The book reviewed was C. Bache, Dark Night, Early Dawn: Steps to a Deep Ecology of Mind (State University of New York Press, ). Minds and Sociocultures Vol. One (), pp. See my Minds and Sociocultures Vol. One (), Part Two. Other theories mentioned in that work were supplied by scholars like Professor Gherardo Gnoli ().

An erudite contribution came from Gnoli in his book Zoroaster’s Time and Homeland (). Gnoli favoured Sistan as the homeland, and was much less radical than Boyce in regard to.

This was why I had cited an appendix (‘On Holotropic Breathwork’) in his Minds and Sociocultures: An Analysis of Religious and Dissenting Movements, Volume One: Zoroastrianism and the Indian Religions ().

Unknown to me at the time, however, another book by Shepherd was at the centre of a Wikipedia controversy relating to Indian guru. He is the author of 14 books, including Gurus Rediscovered (), Minds and Sociocultures: Zoroastrianism and the Indian Religions (), Investigating the Sai Baba Movement (), Hazrat Babajan: A Pathan Sufi of Poona (), and Sai Baba of Shirdi: A Biographical Investigation ()/5(8).

The “theory” was so nebulous that it did not actually form part of the curriculum, which instead comprised. This was why I had cited an appendix (‘On Holotropic Breathwork’) in his Minds and Sociocultures: An Analysis of Religious and Dissenting Movements, Volume One: Zoroastrianism and the Indian Religions ().

Unknown to me at Minds and sociocultures book time, however, another book by Shepherd was at the centre of a Wikipedia controversy relating to Indian guru. Kevin R. Shepherd is a British author, born in He is the author of thirteen annotated books, commencing with Psychology in Science (). He maintains six websites, and also the blog entitled Commentaries.

He is the author of 14 books, including Gurus Rediscovered (19 His early interest in Indian religion developed into studies of Hazrat Babajan, Shirdi Sai Baba, Meher Baba, and other Indian saints. Inhe commenced a twelve-year phase of private research at Cambridge University Library, relating to the history of religions and philosophy.5/5(5).

It is more difficult for critics to rate the gestures in his early works towards alternative therapy and the Human Potential Movement.

His Up from Eden () was unusual as a version of human evolution, though the neo-Hegelian accents and other features have aroused disagreement (see my Minds and Sociocultures Vol.

One,pp. Commentaries was commenced in Novemberbeginning with features on modern Western philosophers. Subsequently the content extended to Greek, Islamic, and Indian philosophers, plus varied mystics. More diverse subjects followed on. The format includes critical assessment, and does not ignore controversial entities.

However, the differences in emphasis are substantial. The copious textual studies, plus the sociological documentation, are beyond the reach of most citizen investigators. My independent research into Indian philosophy eventually gained publication in the book Minds and Sociocultures Vol.

I am a British author, born in (more specifically, I am half-Irish, half-English). I have composed fourteen books, including Meaning in Anthropos () and Minds and Sociocultures: Zoroastrianism and the Indian Religions ().

I undertook private research at. In my longest book, Minds and Sociocultures (), a version of Iranian (Zoroastrian) and Indian religion was charted.

McDonald’s has built a global empire based on the consistency of its products, down to the thickness of fries and the number of pickles on a sandwich. Yet this is a contradiction, because the underlying ideology involved in HB is inseparably related to Grof’s LSD and MDMA therapies, as attested by the books of Grof.

In Minds and Sociocultures, I suggested that Zarathushtra was a contemplative priest or "knower" who confronted an artificial soul journey amongst opposing priests. These rivals may have represented the widespread tendency among occultists to force a way into the "subtle world," with proportionate hazards and deceptions occurring.

The book shows how the hierarchies contained in each structure shape the habitus of the Lao population and how these in turn influence the development of a capitalist and a religious ethos. The argument makes use of Pierre Bourdieu's sociology and adapts it to the setting of Laos by introducing new as well as indigenous concepts.

Because I became acquainted with a quantity of these materials in my unofficial research project, I attempted to make known something of the range involved in Minds and Sociocultures (), of sufficient length to deter casual readers.

I mentioned the subject of Grof and HB in a few pages in a lengthy annotated book of (Minds and Sociocultures Vol. One, pp. 66ff., ff.).
