Local notes

Here is a readable book on the psychology of masochism and how it is connected to religious feeling and depth. What are the true spiritual and psychological pleasures of shame, pain, humiliation, and submission? Are the secrets of these pleasures contained in the clinical literature—Krafft-Ebing, Freud, Jung, or Murray? Are the pathologies of masochism inherent in the religious belief in Dionysus, Lord of Souls, Lord of the Dead, and Jesus Christ? Cowan presents answers to these questions in a book as surprising, profound, and pleasurable.
