Murray Stein speaks on The Hidden World of Transformation
Dr. Murray Stein was a recent guest on The Hidden World with Whitney Logan. Stein speaks on transformations, the topic of the third volume of his Collected Writings.
Transformation is a word used often in discussions of psychological and spiritual development. The works in this collection are directed at an assessment of this developmental process on a personal, individual level as well as on a cultural level. These works extend from consideration of transformation in the lives of great figures like Rilke, Rembrandt, Picasso, Jung, and Dante to cultural topics like the changing God image in modern times. With the world in flux, transformation is a topic of relevance on many levels of human existence.
