I would like to share some personal notes about myself....
Since the beginning of the 1970s in High School I was very clever in the history and philosophy and I was discovering the misconceptions ( in regards to the place of humanities in art and science) that the political hierarchies within the Church (as well as the Romans ) were committing in regards to the roots of western culture, even though some philosophers and wise men and women still admired the high civilization of the native indigenous people of Southern Italy. These misconceptions of the origins of Western culture have cost the modern age (and obviously to all the ages since the 2500 years ago) a lack of understanding of the real meaning of some words including the episteme of Earth-Life ....like "Being, Psyche, Eros ,Therapy, Sophy, Universe, Science, Art, Good, etc ." Thinking that most of those words were coined in that Classical Age, you can have , if you want, the value of the deep heritage of the reality that has been and continues to be lost for our humanity. I am able to demonstrate what I said with my own life experience (Ii was the only child of a suicide mother taking care of her at risk of my own Life) and I have been a clinician for 30 years, degreed in Psychology and Philosophy with a psychotherapy training and I have taught in both foreign and Italian Universities, including at the University of west Georgia and University of Dallas. I have mostly, thought, stayed outside the academy, choosing to be a free thinker! I was a co-founder of a sustainable community living with hard resiliance in an ecovillage Solinio in Southern Italy.....
Anyway , I am very happy to take part of these worldwide group of human beings. Thank you for the occasion that you are offering to share my thoughts.
