Dissociation

Dissociation challenges many comfortable assumptions. Dissociative phenomena are often stark, extreme, and vivid. The identities of individuals with dissociation disorders shift between apparent opposites. Their pain is ignored. Trauma victims report floating above their injured bodies. Are these arcane, dramatic, or staged events, or does dissociation underlie some fundamental aspect of mental organization? Is dissociation the product of a troubled mind or a key to understanding the structure of consciousness and the mind-body relationship? Dissociation: Culture, Mind, and Body is the first book to combine cultural anthropology, cognitive psychology, neurophysiology, and the study of psycho...

Several centuries into the future, humans have allied with Kathari, a race of feline aliens, for mutual protection. Andrew Foster was a crack computer technician recruited to work on the powerful Artificial Intelligence system of the Karenthis, flagship of the Kathterran military fleet. The chance to see a huge, centaur-like Kathari cinched the deal. The psionic felines were the mainstay of any Kathterran vessel. Andrew planned to get the work done and be home by the following afternoon. He didn't expect to remain on the ship when it was deployed to a war zone. He definitely didn't anticipate discovering his true soul mate on the trip.

The Singing Neanderthals

The propensity to make music is the most mysterious, wonderful, and neglected feature of humankind: this is where Steven Mithen began, drawing together strands from archaeology, anthropology, psychology, neuroscience--and, of course, musicology--to explain why we are so compelled to make and hear music. But music could not be explained without addressing language, and could not be accounted for without understanding the evolution of the human body and mind. Thus Mithen arrived at the wildly ambitious project that unfolds in this book: an exploration of music as a fundamental aspect of the human condition, encoded into the human genome during the evolutionary history of our species. Music is ...
