Paragon of warrior valor, or, à la Shakespeare, “idol of idiot worshippers”? This study contends that The Iliad, authored by an ironic sixth century Athenian, unfolds a revolutionary critique of the martial aristocracy. Achilles is undone by his own curse of pothê upon the Achaeans, exposed to an experience of thauma, or wonder, at Patroclus’ psychê, in the first glimmerings of conscience.

I really love the succinct way you write about living positively regardless of the circumstances of your life. Believing in the new age prosperity thinking (along with some bad luck) led me down a bigtime abyss of depression to the point of contemplating suicide. Thankfully that is behind me now. I made a mistake, and now truly value the power of realism and living positively. -- Kathy
Scourge I: The Demise of Critical Thinking in the Age of The Secret
Price: Free! Words: 42,600. Language: English. Published: January 2, 2015. Categories: Nonfiction » Psychology » Mental health, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / existentialism
This installment argues that "The Secret" is emblematic of the greater social milieu we are finding ourselves in at this time. For this reason I isolated it as a particularly good example of how similar frauds are conveyed. It shows how easily we may unknowingly give away our power to quacks and con-men. That's if we fail to think critically, instead to abandon our sanity to reckless delusion.

The novel reveals my primitive complexes, inmost emotions and cracked dreams. It is a tale about an escape from the elemental impulses and social clichés through a journey. The emotional path meanders between the unbearable hypocrisy of the stony-hearted society, a self-destructive self-denial and an awe of the natural insanity.
