Retrospective 2019-23

This is a look back at my reading and painting during the week.


This week I’ve read Energies (1964), How We Do Things (1974), Transformation (1974), Intimations (1975), Creative Thinking (1989), and Way To Be Free (2006) by John G. Bennett.

Books by John G. Bennett.

John G. Bennett always returned to the idea that there are more inward aspects of ourselves that are capable of working in a totally different way to the outside of ourselves. His term for direct insight into experience was seeing. He always seeked to engage his students into seeing more deeply. John G. Bennett believed that understanding the world in new ways had to go hand-in-hand with investigating self-knowledge. He continued to question assumptions and stayed closely in touch with concrete experience to the end of his life.
