The essential tension between our material and spiritual natures is often forgotten as we pursue contemporary concerns. Jacob Needleman, Ph.D., author of The Heart of Philosophy and The New Religions, points to Socrates as the ideal philosopher who, through his questioning, brought people to an appreciation of deeper strata of awareness.

The Art of Communicating (#S072)

$29.95 $18.95
30 minutes
Why do we fail to truly listen when there is so much wisdom available to us? Philosopher Jacob Needleman suggests that communication is dependent upon the ability to listen to the depths within oneself. Paradoxically, sometimes our thoughts take us away from the here and now. To break through these barriers, Needleman discusses methods he uses as a teacher and a writer.

EXCERPT: Spirituality and the Intellect

"The greatest things to be communicated have to be experienced by oneself. And to communicate it in words, to pretend that through just giving words you're communicating the thing, is like giving a person a photograph of some food instead of having him eat it."
--Jacob Needleman
