The Life of Voices illustrates how human voices have special significance as the place where mind and body collaborate to produce everyday speech. Hannah Rockwell links Russian semiotician Mikhail Bakhtin’s philosophy of dialogue with French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s views of the relation between bodies and speech expression to develop a unique theory of communication and bodies. By introducing readers to actual human subjects speaking about how their identities have been shaped and transformed through time, the author explores how discourses reproduce ideology and social power relations. Readers are challenged to consider complex influences between human subjects and institutionalized discourses through critical-interpretive analyses of transcribed speech. The Life of Voices has an interdisciplinary flair grounded in careful research. Scholars in communication, sociology, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, gender studies and identity politics will find valuable insights, methods and examples in this work. It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in discourse studies and the body’s relationship to speech or human identity formation.

We live immersed in thought. But do we actually know what a thought is? To answer this question, psychology professor Charles Fernyhough draws on everything from neuroscience to literary history to grasp the true nature of this most inscrutable of acts: thinking. Whether a medieval saint who hears voices or a writer absorbed in an imagined world, a daydreamer riding the subway or a captivated reader, we experience thought as a creative inner dialogue featuring multiple voices. Fernyhough uses this conception to demystify mental illness, showing that imagining voices is intimately linked to the feeling of artistic production. Drawing on literature, film, and psychology, as well as cognitive science, The Voices Within is a poetic venture into the depths of our mind. It will revolutionize the way we hear and understand the voices in our heads.

Connecting to our inner lives can foster healing, self-development and self-awareness. This unique book looks in depth at ten major contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches which all use inner dialogue as a way of developing both professionally and personally. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, some of whom were chosen to contribute by the founder of the approach. The authors include personal stories of how they have used the approach in their own lives and work as therapists, giving a deeper insight into each method. As well as developing a connection to the mind, several of the approaches focus on deepening an awareness of the body and listening to its voice. Approaches covered include the Jungian approach, Gestalt therapy, Focusing, internal family systems therapy, and Hakomi. Drawing on both Eastern and Western traditions and methods, this fascinating book will be of interest to psychotherapists, counsellors and students, as well as anyone with an interest in inner dialogue, healing and personal development.

Ce recueil bilingue consacré à l'écrivain canadien Margaret Atwood, reconnue comme l'une des figures dominantes de la littérature d'expression anglaise, contient l'intervention qu'elle a prononcée à Rennes en novembre 1998 sur son roman The Handmaid's Tale (La Servante écarlate) et sur le genre auquel il appartient. Le roman, inscrit aux programmes 1999 du CAPES et de l'Agrégation d'anglais, a été l'un des plus grands succès littéraires des années 80 aux Etats-Unis, au Canada et en Grande-Bretagne. Utopie, dystopie, satire, ou fiction spéculative, ce texte au scénario terrifiant s'inscrit à l'intérieur du courant postmoderne. Cet ouvrage rassemble des études du roman qui ont été présentées en décembre 1998 au Colloque Margaret Atwood organisé par le Centre d'Etudes Canadiennes de Rennes. Les auteurs analysent le texte sous différents éclairages : ils explorent les rapports entre littérature et société, politique et poétique, langage et organisation de la cité, et examinent les stratégies de détournement mises en œuvre. This bilingual collection devoted to Canadian writer Margaret Atwood, one of the best-known figures in the field of English language literature, contains the address that she pronounced in Rennes in November 1998 on her novel The Handmaid's Tale - one of the greatest literary successes of the 80's in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain - as well as on the genre to which it belongs. Whether it be a utopia, dystopia, satire, or else speculative fiction, the text with its terrifying scenario belongs to the postmodemist movement. This volume brings together studies of the novel that were presented in December 1998 at the Margaret Atwood Conference organised by die Centre d'Etudes Canadiennes of Rennes. The authors analyse the work from different perspectives - they explore the relationship between literature and society, politics and poetics, communication and community, and they study the strategies of resistance and displacement set up by the writer.

No matter how much is learned, if that learning remains in our heads, it is not enough. Unless learning touches our hearts, it's never going to bring us the wisdom we seek, the peace we desire, or the intimacy and connection for which we yearn.A new and more receptive way of knowing is needed, and is found in this course for the heart.“The Dialogues of A Course of Love” is the third volume in this three-book Course of Love series. In this culmination, dialogue becomes the new way of knowing. “As you engage in dialogue…your ability to embrace all while focusing on your own purpose will begin a new process of individuation. You are now ready to reclaim your Self.” Each way and each person is needed.“There is no other time. There is no “higher” self waiting to do what only you can do.” In “The Dialogues of A Course of Love,” you will find the most sweeping changes, and the most personal, and emphatic call back to self. The Dialogues begin with sections on Acceptance, Discovery, and Being, after which you are invited to ascend to the mountain with Jesus for Forty Days and Forty Nights. Here you are an equal, sharing in companionship and dialogue as you prepare to return from the mountain as a new self. This is completion and integration of what is gained in this work that leads beyond the ego to a life of meaning and purpose.
