Re: St James Senior Boys has a new headmaster

"The pervasive philosophical ethos of the school is its principal defence against misbehaviour and anti-social behaviour of all kinds."

Oh, the irony.

Because the pervasive philosophical ethos of the school was the principal cause of misbehaviour and anti-social behaviour of all kinds.

Precisely.

Re: SFSK Devotee

Re: "Invent God"

Woodgreen " I know you don't accept this "spirit" thing AT" How do you know that? You might be jumping to conclusions there, depending on what you mean by the words 'accept', and 'spirit'. I referred to the soul in a recent post to Earlgrey, please note. My observation here is th...

Sorry Ella Mc but I refuse to enter into your MRS M bashing...thats your work not mine.

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Dear Dr. Alan, Thank you very much indeed for taking so much time to answer the questions at length. I must admit that some of your explanation has me still interested to know more. This may be because I am no expert on the subject, while you appear to be a doctor with a PhD - did you say that this ...

"Invent God"

Jeremy Sinclair is chairman of advertising firm M & C Saatchi PLC and wrote the book 'Brutal Simplicity of Thought.' He is, as far as I'm aware, one of a very small group of most influential members of SES. I have been told by members that he is the author of 'the material' - the text used to ru...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Dear Dr Alan, Thank you for your response. Perhaps you could clarify a few things. First of all, in a nutshell, are you saying Advaita Vedanta was never meant to be practiced by people in society at large, that it more a sort of reclusive mysticism, perhaps more in common with the theology of monast...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Dear Earlgrey, It seems that you are in a good position to try out professional assistance with your situation. I say this because you clearly have strong independent ideas about what has happened. You're not looking for someone with a view to them telling you what to think. If you are interested in...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Earlgrey, In think you've done right thing by putting the clause back. I also agree with you that it is important to be careful about self-indulgence, there is indeed a trade-off between self-indulgence and honesty. But one can determine the difference between the two. And you've also pointed out so...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Dear Earlgrey, I read your post a while ago and decided to give it some thought. But having come back, it seems to have been edited. I recall you said that as you wrote, you were crying. This is now gone from the text. What I'd come back to say was that in my view, your tears are nothing less than s...

Century of the Self, one 4-hour clip

This prize-winning documentary series has been recommended here before, for insight into how the world of psychology, advertising, public relations and politics converge. Among other things, it takes a look at how our emotional needs are key to subliminal persuasion and mind control. Fascinating and...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Earlgrey, Tootsie, Thanks for your reply. I've noticed something that you might agree seems relevant. If I'm not mistaken, and please correct me if I am, in both of your responses the word 'criticism' is used with a meaning that is specific to your circumstances in SES. I referred to the notion of c...

I think that was brilliant. Well done.

You said it was harder than you thought. What was hard about it?
