Book: Beyond Marginality , by Rene J. Muller, ISBN10: 0275961311, ISBN13: 9780275961312, Greenwood Publishing Group, Incorporated, July 1998, Hardcover
RENE J. MULLER works for the Crisis Intervention Service at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore.
The author balances a psychopathological gaze with a vision for life. He looks beyond a flagging Western Cartesian sensibility for reasons and ways to live morally and happily at a time when the values that could support this paradigm shift are just beginning to evolve.
Muller expands on his existential analysis of marginality in (1987) informed by his subsequent expose to D. T. Suzuki's articulation of Zen. He moves from diagnosis to prescription, from describing what is lacking in western culture and the western self to projecting what might be done about it. His focus is on values and ethics and how to live in a post- Christian world where no values other than human values are recognized. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
