I am writing a paper about science and psychotherapy. This weblog is just full of references I want ! That is the whole idea of course. Here is one that poped up after a Google search, out of my own thesis: THE GROUP AND ITS PROTAGONIST
Between the sensory and the intellectual world, sages have always experienced an intermediate realm, one akin to what we call the imaginings of poets. If you are a religious believer, whether normative or heterodox, this middle world is perceived as the presence of the divine in our every day world. If you are more skeptical, such presence is primarily aesthetic or perhaps a kind of perspectivism.
