Classical Mythology Online - Character Glossary
Asclepius [as-klee'pi-us] (Aesculapius) or Asklepios, "cut up," or "turn round and round"(?) The son of Apollo and Coronis, he was god of medicine and healing, but was raised by the centaur Chiron, who taught him medicine (Pindar, Pythian Odes 3.5-7). He could restore the dead to life, for which offense Zeus killed him with a thunderbolt (Pindar, Pythian Odes 3.54-58; Euripides, Alcestis 3-6; Apollodorus 3.10.4; Hyginus, Fabulae 49; Diodorus Siculus 4.71.2-3). The most famous temple of Asclepius was at Epidaurus. His children included Machaon, Podalirius (Diodorus Siculus 4.71.4), Hygeia (Health), and Panacea (Cure-all). Family Tree 21.

John Herbert - ASD Dream Time - Dreaming in Cyberspace Reflections on Online Dream Groups John W. Herbert, Ph. D.
The advent of global communication via the Internet has brought many changes to the extent to which information can be shared, and it has also changed our sense of community. We are no longer bound by geographical constraints but are linked by communal interests. Electronic communication provides us with many ways with which to share these various interests, and dreamwork has been one area that has proven to be very suitable for this emerging medium.

Jung Society of Atlanta - Hermes and the Creation of Space Hermes and the Creation of Space by Murray Stein
The Greek God Who was Hermes? The great 19th century German mythographer, W.H.Roscher, identified Hermes as the wind, subsuming under this basic identity all of his other roles and attributes - Hermes as servant and messenger of the sky god Zeus, Hermes as swift and winged, Hermes as thief and bandit, Hermes as inventor of the pipes and lyre, Hermes as guide of souls and as god of dreams and sleep, Hermes as promoter of fertility among plants and animals and as patron of health, Hermes as god of good fortune, Hermes as patron of traffic and business activities on water and land. Ingeniously, Roscher tied all of these functions to the primitive perception of a wind god. Hermes is like the wind. We can hear Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" as a moving hymn to this god:
O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being, Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing...

Short Intro Archetypal psychology - Stanley Richards
To have any sense of the depths of the psyche is to grasp how little one knows about oneself. To feel this one must have glimpsed the depths. Archetypal psychology, following Carl Jung, begins with the Socratic grasp of one’s ignorance, not just as an intellectual admission, but as truly standing in awe before the unfathomable caverns of the soul. Dear reader, do not surf on by. Linger a while! As in life, sometimes it is good to pause where one has landed.

Wolfgang Giegerich: The Soul's Logical Life Towards a Rigorous Notion of Psychology A preface here and link to where the book can be bought, Amazon seem to be sold out. Here us the amazon blurb:
Editorial Reviews Book Description C.G. Jung's psychology was based on an authentic notion of soul, but this notion was only intuitive, implicit, not conceptually worked out. His followers forfeit his heritage, often turning psychology either into pop psychology or into a scientific, clinical enterprise. It is the merit of James Hillman's archetypal psychology to have brought back the question of soul to psychology. But as 'imaginal' psychology it cannot truly overcome psychology's positivistic, personalistic bias that it set out to overcome. Its "Gods" can be shown to be virtual-reality type gods because it avoids the question of Truth. Through what logically is the movement of an "absolute-negative interiorization", alchemically a "fermenting corruption", and mythologically a Dionysian dismemberment, one has to go beyond the imaginal to a notion of soul as logical life, logical movement. Only then can psychology be freed from its positivism and cease being a subdivision of anthropology, and can the notion of soul be logically released from its attachment to the notion of the human being.

Archetypal Psychology Home
Welcome... What is now known as the school of 'archetypal psychology' was founded by James Hillman with a number of other Jungians in Zurich in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The school arose in reaction against what they regarded as unnecessarily metaphysical assumptions in Jung and the complacent, rote application of Jungian tenets. Hillman prefers to regard archetypal psychology not as a 'school' but as a 'direction' or an 'approach'. Archetypal psychology is a post-Jungian psychology, a critical elaboration of Jungian theory and practice after Jung.

Unfreezing the Corporate Mind John Seely Brown
If you want to change a corporation, you need to change the conversations happening within it. That was the recommendation from John Seely Brown in his address to Real Time participants. In a good conversation, the whole is more important than the parts, Brown said. A focused conversation is a self-scaffolding structure that has a dynamic aspect to it . Therefore, if you change the conversations of a corporation, you change the corporation. "All learning starts with focused conversations," Brown says. "The only kind of learning you want to think about is collaborative learning. But how do you structure conversations to become self-scaffolding conversations?" Expertise lies as much in the social mind as in the individual mind, Brown said. Knowledge is distributed across people and across artifacts. So the ability to interpret each other -- read what is really happening -- is tacit knowledge possessed by the group as a whole. That knowledge is brought together when groups share tasks over a substantial period of time, he said.
This ofcourse is from the author of The Social Life of Information interesting to discover that he wrote that key article (see below) in the first issue of The Fast Company back in 1995.

Communities of Practice: The Organizational Frontier by Etienne C. Wenger and William M. Snyder
A new organizational form is emerging in companies that run on knowledge: the community of practice. And for this expanding universe of companies, communities of practice promise to radically galvanize knowledge sharing, learning, and change. A community of practice is a group of people informally bound together by shared expertise and passion for a joint enterprise. People in companies form them for a variety of reasons -- to maintain connections with peers when the company reorganizes; to respond to external changes such as the rise of e-commerce; or to meet new challenges when the company changes strategy. Regardless of the circumstances that give rise to communities of practice, their members inevitably share knowledge in free-flowing, creative ways that foster new approaches to problems. Over the past five years, the authors have seen communities of practice improve performance at companies as diverse as an international bank, a major car manufacturer, and a U.S. government agency. Communities of practice can drive strategy, generate new lines of business, solve problems, promote the spread of best practices, develop people's skills, and help companies recruit and retain talent. The paradox of such communities is that although they are self-organizing and thus resistant to supervision ..."

Article - Communities of Practice (Learning and work as social activities)
by David Stamps associate editor of TRAINING Magazine. Copyright © 1999 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Learning is social. Training is irrelevant? As the end of a century draws near, the air is sure to thicken with prophecies about the future, including the future of work. The "knowledge worker" will be a favorite topic of management soothsaying; so will "the learning organization." But for a clear vision of how learning should happen in a business setting, you need only talk to Dede Miller, a customer service representative for Xerox Corp. For two years she was treated to a tantalizing glimpse of the future. Today she finds herself wishing she could go back to it. To know her story is to understand just how wide a gap still separates learning theory and common training practice - and how hard it will be to apply new approaches to workplace training, even those that make incontestable sense.

The Making of a Virtual Professor Richard B. Kettner-Polley Professor of Business Administration International School of Information Management University
ABSTRACT The role of the professor is changing dramatically. Lectures endure despite the fact that they were outmoded as soon as books became readily available to students. This is a case study in the transformation of one traditional professor into a virtual professor. On one level this is only one person’s story. On another level it is a sign of the times. Jorge Klor de Alva’s choice to leave one of the most prestigious universities in the country for the University of Phoenix is a signal event. Traditional academia will change, and it is the quiet transformation of traditional professors into virtual professors that tells the true story behind this revolution.

More on Psyche and Libraries Been thinking about what I wrote about Amazon being Alexandria. It is not quite right, the whole Net is the new Alexandria. And I doubt the future is corporate. XML plus peer-to-peer sharing means literature and texts of all kinds will be "free" like music is now. However *right now*, and that is all there is, there is nothing like Amazon, and it may be like that for a while yet. Memory is something of a seat of the soul, and computer memory is in the same class. All of our written words our *written traditions* are what the Maori call whakapapa. Our ancestors and their stories have a spititual quality - in a library these spirits are all around us - the library is a sacred place.

The Psychological Meaning of Internet Privacy Some news clips and then some musings from me. Groups Criticize Amazon Policy By D. IAN HOPPER, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP)
"Consumer groups say a change in's privacy policy could leave customers of the Internet retailing giant no recourse if they don't want personal information such as credit card numbers and home addresses passed on to some other company. Seattle-based Inc., which sells a wide range of products, including books, toys and hardware, posted a revised privacy policy on its Web site Thursday telling customers the information they give is considered a company asset that can be sold. A company spokeswoman, Patty Smith, said the new policy is actually more restrictive in some cases, and better explains what Amazon can and cannot do with customer data. ``As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets,'' the new policy reads. ``In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets.''
No. 3.6 . The Filter. 9.08.00 from Harvard at has a section on this... they say:
"Now, in the wake of a decision by the Massachusetts Bankruptcy Court overseeing the ToysMart case not to consider its agreement with the FTC in the absence of a buyer for ToysMart's assets, leading e-tailer has introduced modifications to its privacy policy making it clear that Amazon customers' personal data is considered a company asset and can therefore legitimately be shared with Amazon's growing cadre of corporate partners—or, if need be,sold."
The question of privacy is and will be debated from a legal, political and social perspective. From a psychological perspective what is happening as Amazon changes policy? A lot. First Some thoughts about Amazon . This is a super Alexandria - and an Amazon customer is a scholar in the greatest library ever, so what happens as we access this database of books in print? It is not only a library it is a huge many-to-many discussion about books. Yet the networks of people here is not social - "I learn that people who bought this also bought this" - that is a psychometric or psychological revelation. I can look at reviewers and their profiles, meet them, see what is on their wish list and in their "purchase circle" and move to the website of fan clubs and authors. This is not like meeting people in a physical bookstore - here we read their minds - we enter into a mind-space. We find books without the help of librarians, but with each other in systems of automated and non-automated collaboration that runs deep. Because this library will work best if there is only *one* people flock to the biggest, where they find the most. Perhaps it is sad that this is a store, and a commercial, corporate, capitalist place - that is not unlike many universities - there is no class neutrality when it comes to learning. With immunity to the Orwellian nightmare inherent in the inherent impact of the words: knowledge about the customers is called an asset. That knowledge of the scholars in this modern Alexandria is the very thing that is used to tune the scholars into the information using automated collaborative filtering or psychometry as Moreno would have called it. It would seem a marvelous virtue if it was *one librarian* who had the knowledge about the scholars. This virtue becomes scary in the panopticon. As individuals we are not able to learn, learning is in relationship with others, always. These relationships are so vital that we will seek them out wherever they work best - even if we have to be humiliated by being seen as a "user, a customer, and an asset". Can the impulse to seek the purest collaborative knowing be stronger than any companies ability to exploit that need for its own greed? Can our collective spirit and soul transcend the ugliness of some of the culture invading the Net?

Home Page Architecture: Social Psychological Principles by Leon James in Hawaii More from professor James - good on "place"... "My Home Page is my other house. It sits in cyberspace. I had a difficult time explaining why I call a bunch of computer files on my drive by the name of "my house" or "my home." He had a bunch of folders and files on his computer and he didn't see why he should call this his house. Well, that's not it. I don't use the term "my home" for just any bunch of computer files around. But these particular files are connected to the Internet. This means that millions of people could look at them, at any time, and read them, or copy them to their own computer. In fact any navigator in cyberspace who lands on your Home Page can copy them at the flick of the mouse. For all I know my Home Page, or sections thereof, can have thousands of duplicates of itself all around the world."

The Religion of Technology : The Divinity of Man and the Spirit of Invention by David F. Noble

The Amazon site it worth it for the reviews. See also: the review by John McLaughlin, which begins:

"In a recent review for the online journal Kairos, I referred to Ray Kurzweil's The Age of Spiritual Machines as a brilliant book "with a hole in the middle." That hole was the lack of any extended discussion of the concept of spirituality, in the context of nanotechnology, genetic engineering, and photon-based computing, Kurzweil's actual subjects. What could "spirituality" mean in such a context?"
