Between Apocalypse and Utopia

I have so much material for Volume Two of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas that my publisher has now decided to split it into two volumes. Volume Two, originally subtitled Between Apocalypse and Utopia (1939-1977), will now be subtitled The Emergence of the New Anarchism. It begins with anarchist responses to the Second World War and the development of the atomic bomb, when the risk of nuclear apocalypse became very real. Volume Two then goes on to document the remarkable resurgence in anarchist ideas that followed, partly in response to these horrific developments. As with Volume One, Volume Two will contain many selections never before translated into English or from obscure and out of print sources. Here is a tentative Table of Contents [for the final version that has gone to the publisher, see my page on this blog for Volume 2]:

  1. Nice Site!

  2. Good to see Paul Goodman mentioned in a post-modern context of anarchism.
    I was curious what relation anarchism had on gestalt therapy, if there is one?

  3. Paul Goodman helped introduce gestalt therapy to a North American audience. He co-wrote Gestalt Therapy: Excitement and Growth in the Human Personality (New York: Julian Press, 1951), with Fred Perls and Ralph Hefferline. Goodman’s essay, “A Public Dream of Universal Disaster,” which will be included in Volume 2 of my Anarchism anthology, uses the insights of gestalt therapy to analyze the social psychology of Cold War America.

  4. Too bad, so many of the actual “gestalt institutions” have forgotten the radical political aspect of helping humans to see the whole picture and be truly themselves.Getting rid of this fundamental base helped to fit in the “market”.

    Sadly enough Neoliberalism has seduce too many therapists to an over adaptation to a sick society. Few still resit and go on fighting for the human potential able to make sense in an abusive system.
