There are many students of theosophy who admire the thought of Carl Jung.
However, maybe most of them don’t see that Jung ideas are contrary to Ethics, as Eric Fromm and others showed.
There is a most interesting article that brings even more evidences about the untheosophical ideais of Mr. Jung, and his relation with a Dugpa sect.

After the massive flooding in Australia and the recent catastrophe in Japan, now is the United States who is suffering the impact of the global climatic disruption.
I just saw in the news that deadly storms ravaged parts of the South, killing almost 300 people. The level of destruction is so huge that it was declared the state of emergency. 
I would like to send my solidarity to the American…Continue

Weiss, part four
Hierarchy: a biological necessity
To stress the need for viewing living organisms as hierarchically
ordered systems, ponder the following facts. The average cell in the human body
consists of about eighty per cent of water and for the rest contains about 10^5

To Unlock the Clarity of ones inner self, you have to view everything outside the box. Metaphoricaly the box is the people and places and things on earth. With every action there is consequence. No one is better than any other. We always assume we have things to offer those we trust, trust being the key word. What gives a person the right not to trust someone. We allow ourselves to be defeated by the past. If one can…Continue

Weiss, part three
Reductionism and holism
Weiss next tries to define basic criteria that mark a complex of parts for designation as a system. First, however, he talks about the controversy in biology between "reductionism" and "holism". The former finds its advocates in the field of "molecular biology". The latter term can be used to imply a deliberate “self-limitation of…

Weiss, part two
From analysis to synthesis
By looking from single objects to their interrelations with others,
one reverses his direction from analysis to synthesis. By doing this,
one discovers simple rules which describe the interrelations between…

Today we can see the widespread use of mind-manipulation techniques been
used on a large scale and, unfortunately, so effectively.
This mind control of individuals and populations and their effects need to be analyzed and understood, so that the forces of truth can come out victorious in the great battle for freedom of consciences.

Modern Language and…

We continue with Piaget and Inhelder:
“There is a second difference between physical experience and logico-mathematical experience or deduction. Whilst the latter, proceeding by means of reflective abstractions, leads to progressive purification (whose final stages are today those of the formalization peculiar to "pure" mathematics), physical experience is always a sort of "mixture". There is in fact no "pure" experience in…

In this series of blog posts, I will summarize and quote parts of some books that deal with the problems of reductionism.
The first book that draw my attention, was the famous book "Beyond reductionism", New perspectives in the life sciences, which is a report from the Alpbach Symposium held in 1968. Participants were, among others, Arthur Koestler [holons!], J.R. Smythies, Ludwig von Bertalanffy [systems theory], Paul Weiss, Jean Piaget[developmental psychology], Paul Maclean…
