The Systematic Study of Philosophical Midwifery

Pierre Grimes: The Systematic Study of Philosophical Midwifery, online via zoom

Pierre Grimes has shown that the primary cause of a class of human problems lies in the rejection and ignoring of the depth and meaning of the Self. He will present the theory and method for surfacing what he calls the pathologos from his book, Philosophical Midwifery: a new paradigm for understanding human problems, that included its psychological verification by Dr. Regina Uliana. It is recommended that those entering this course review the Power Point Presentation, “PMW and Dreams.”
