Four brilliant essays by the author of 'Hermes and His Children' hailing the elemental force of the irrational in a world that is all too often 'explained' and 'understood': Moon Madness -- Titanic Love; Cultural Anxiety; Reflections on the Duende; Consciousness of Failure. Lopez-Pedraza passionately urges us to ackwledge our roots in the soul and our debt to the unkwable.
Rafael Lopez-Pedraza was born in Cuba in 1920 of Spanish heritage. He attended the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich from 1963 until 1974 and today lives in Caracas, Venezuela, where he divides his time between professorial duties, a psychotherapeutic practice and writing.
