Dorothy Rowe shows us how to have the courage to acknowledge and face our fears - only through courage can we find a sustaining happiness. 'Beyond Fear', first published in 1987, has changed the lives of thousands of people. In this edition, the renowned psychologist Dorothy Rowe examines the changes in the psychiatric system since 1987 in the context of showing how most of our suffering comes from our greatest fear, that of being annihilated as a person, when we shall disappear like a puff of smoke in the wind, never to have existed. We feel this fear whenever others humiliate or belittle us, or whenever we discover a serious discrepancy between what we thought our life was and what it actually is. The greater our fear, the more desperate our defence against it, the most desperate of defences being what psychiatrists call mental disorders. Yet, by knowing ourselves we can go beyond our fear and face life with courage.

Dorothy Rowe's Guide to Life (Paperback, New Ed): Dorothy Rowe Dorothy Rowe's Guide to Life (Paperback, New Ed)
Dorothy Rowe
R253 Discovery Miles 2 530 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The central theme of all Dorothy Rowe's work is that, while the world and ourselves might seem to be solid and real, the way in which we are constituted means that we can never know reality directly, only the meanings we have created about reality.

It is when we don't understand this, when we mistakenly think that we, our life and the world are fixed, unalterable parts of reality which we have to put up with and cope with as best we can, that we find we can't handle life's problems – we make mistakes, feel trapped, and often despair.

When we do understand it, we realise that we are free to change.

Dorothy Rowe has helped tens of thousands of people reach this understanding through her books on fear, depression and unhappiness. She had shown how, by understanding our nature, we can end our suffering. Her 'Guide to Life'
is a summation of this wisdom bur with more besides, for there is no end to self-understanding. Like all her books, it is clear and compassionate, witty and wise.

Why We Lie - The Source of Our Disasters (Paperback): Dorothy Rowe Why We Lie - The Source of Our Disasters (Paperback)
Dorothy Rowe 1
R310 R226 Discovery Miles 2 260 Save R84 (27%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Why do we lie? Because we are frightened of being humiliated, being treated like an object, being rejected, losing control of things, and, most of all, we are frightened of uncertainty. Often we get our lies in before any of these things can happen. We lie to maintain our vanity. We lie when we call our fantasies the truth. Lying is much easier than searching for the truth and accepting it, no matter how inconvenient it is. We lie to others, and, even worse, we lie to ourselves. In both private and public life, we damage ourselves with our lies, and we damage other people. Lies destroy mutual trust, and fragment our sense of who we are. Lies have played a major part in climate change and the global economic crisis. Fearing to change how they live, many people prefer to continue lying rather than acknowledge that we are facing a very uncertain but undoubtedly unpleasant future unless we learn how to prefer the truths of the real world in which we live rather than the comforting lies that ultimately betray us. We are capable of changing, but will we choose to do this?

Stories about siblings abound in literature, drama, comedy, biography, and history. We rarely talk about our own siblings without emotion, whether with love and gratitude, or exasperation, bitterness, anger and hate. Nevertheless, the subject of what it is to be and to have a sibling is one that has been ignored by psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists.

In My Dearest Enemy, My Dangerous Friend, Dorothy Rowe presents a radically new way of thinking about siblings that unites the many apparently contradictory aspects of these complex relationships. This helps us to recognise the various experiences involved in sibling relationships as a result of the fundamental drive for survival and validation, enabling us to reach a deeper understanding of our siblings and ourselves.

If you have a sibling, or you are bringing up siblings, or, as an only child, you want to know what you re missing, this is the book for you.

Living with the Bomb - Can We Live Without Enemies? (Paperback): Dorothy Rowe Living with the Bomb - Can We Live Without Enemies? (Paperback)
Dorothy Rowe
R989 Discovery Miles 9 890 Out of stock

Originally published in 1985, Living with the Bomb was written as a sequel to the best seller Depression: The Way Out of Your Prison. The human species is facing extinction, not merely from nuclear war but also, and perhaps more likely, from the destruction of the resources of the planet. Is it possible for us to change? To organise a peaceful, sharing society? To live in a world without enemies - and so to avoid extinction as a species? Dorothy Rowe outlines the painful process of change which all of us, all nations, races, creeds, will have to undertake to establish the forgiveness and reconciliation necessary to secure the continuation of the human race. Many people know about the peril threatening us - but many deny it. Dorothy Rowe describes the forms this denial takes and the effects such denial has on those defending themselves in this way. She shows how certain basic beliefs about human nature and the purpose of life, beliefs held by many people, undermine our determination to protect ourselves. She argues that to become and remain a person we must be a member of a group, and that we create ourselves and our world out of structures which, when threatened, we defend with aggression. We perceive and define only in terms of contrast, and the contrast to our group, the Stranger becomes the Dangerous Stranger as a necessary repository for aspects of ourselves we have been taught to reject and deny. Although the world's focus may have changed since 1985, the themes that run through this book are still very relevant for society today.

Angelika Hoerle - The Comet of Cologne Dada (Paperback): Sabine Kriebel, Angie Littlefield, Dorothy Rowe Angelika Hoerle - The Comet of Cologne Dada (Paperback)

Angelika Hoerle (1899-1923) and her artist husband Heinrich Hoerle were protagonists in the Dada movement in Cologne, alongside Max Ernst and Johannes Baargeld. Between 1919 and her tragic death from tuberculosis in 1923, Hoerle built an outstanding oeuvre of Dada collages, caricatures, linocuts and drawings-some of which was acquired by Katherine Dreier and Marcel Duchamp's famous Societe Anonyme collection, with other works going to the Art Gallery of Toronto, and the rest of which was sadly destroyed by the Nazis as "degenerate art." Hoerle brought to Cologne Dada's ranks a fully formed Marxist and feminist politics, and when Dada proved too dogmatic to contain her, she and Heinrich formed the breakaway "Stupid Group." "The Comet of Cologne Dada" situates Hoerle among the artistic and political ferment of Weimar Germany, as a key figure whose artistic drive and political conscience were unthwartable and exemplary.

Berlin, city of Bertolt Brecht, Marlene Dietrich, cabaret and German Expressionism, a city identified with a female sexuality - at first alluring but then dangerous. In this fascinating study, Dorothy Rowe turns our attention to Berlin as a sexual landscape. She investigates the processes by which women and femininity played a prominent role in depictions of the city at the end of the nineteenth and into the early twentieth centuries. She explores how in the aftermath of the horrors of World War I, increasing anxieties about the liberation of women and the supposed increase of female prostitution contributed to the demonization of the city not as a focus of desire and pleasure but rather as one of alienation and anxiety.

R2,934 Discovery Miles 29 340 Out of stock

Women, the Arts and Globalization: Eccentric Experience is the first anthology to bring transnational feminist theory and criticism together with women's art practices to discuss the connections between aesthetics, gender and identity in a global world. The essays in Women, the Arts and Globalization demonstrate that women in the arts are rarely positioned at the center of the art market, and the movement of women globally (as travelers or migrants, empowered artists/scholars or exiled practitioners), rarely corresponds with the dominant models of global exchange. Rather, contemporary women's art practices provide a fascinating instance of women's eccentric experiences of the myriad effects of globalization. Bringing scholarly essays on gender, art and globalization together with interviews and autobiographical accounts of personal experiences, the diversity of the book is relevant to artists, art historians, feminist theorists and humanities scholars interested in the impact of globalization on culture in the broadest sense.

Suddenly, in the twenty-first century, religion has become a political power. It affects us all, whether we're religious or not. If we're not in danger of being blown up by a suicide bomber we've got leaders to whom God speaks, ordering them to start a war. We're beset by people who demand that we give ourselves to Jesus while they smugly assure us of their own superiority and inherent goodness. We're surrounded by those who noisily reject science while making full use of the benefits science brings; by the 'spiritual' ones; the ones who believe in magic; and there's the militant atheists berating us all for our stupidity. We wouldn't object to what people believed if only they'd keep it to themselves. We want to make up our own minds about what we believe, but it's difficult to do this. Everyone has to face the dilemma that we all die but no one knows for certain what death actually is. Is it the end of our identity or a doorway to another life? Whichever we choose, our choice is a fantasy that determines the purpose of our life. If death is the end of our identity, we have to make this life satisfactory, whatever 'satisfactory' might mean to us. If it is a doorway to another life, what are the standards we have to reach to go to that better life? All religions promise to overcome death, but there's no set of religious or philosophical beliefs that ensures that our life is always happy and secure. Moreover, for many of us, what we were taught about a religion severely diminished our self-confidence and left us with a constant debilitating feeling of guilt and shame. Through all this turmoil comes the calm, clear voice of eminent psychologist Dorothy Rowe. She separates the political from the personal, the power-seeking from the compassionate. She shows how, if we use our beliefs as a defence against our feelings of worthlessness, we feel compelled to force our beliefs on to other people by coercion or aggression. However, it is possible to create a set of beliefs, expressed in the religious or philosophical metaphors most meaningful to us, which allow us to live at peace with ourselves and other people, to feel strong in ourselves without having to remain a child forever dependent on some supernatural power, and to face life with courage and optimism.
