University Professors Press

Advance praise for the book:

“ of the great reflections on humanity.”

— Alfried Langle, MD, President of the International Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, Vienna, Austria

“The Polarized Mind is excellent. In my estimation it is a 21st century extension of Rollo May’s Cry for Myth. I mean this as the highest compliment.”

— Sheldon Solomon, Ph.D., Social Psychologist, Skidmore College, co-founder of Terror Management Theory and co-author of In the Wake of 9/11

“Enormously important...[The Polarized Mind] will be of great appeal to students, trainees, practitioners, and well as to educated readers concerned about the perils of human life in the 21st century.”

— Robert D. Stolorow, PhD, Author, World, Affectivity, Trauma: Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis, Founding faculty member, Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis

“Erudite, eloquent, and elegant! This book connects the psychology of the polarizing mind with historical events that shaped the course of humanity through millennia. This excellent volume illuminates social and cultural dynamics that are as relevant and dangerous today as they were ages ago.”

— Isaac Prilleltensky, PhD, Dean, School of Education, University of Miami, Author of *Promoting Well-Being*

“The Polarized Mind is not only very timely, it is also very moving.”

— Sonja Saltman, Ph.D., co-founder of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Boyd School of Law

“Kirk Schneider once again displays the impressive range of his research and humanistic and existential thinking with a book on the absolutist mentality. The Polarized Mind is an insightful wrestling with a kind of entrenched and inflexible thinking which can be seen lurking behind many of civilization's woes and terrors. It is an important contribution to psychological literature and a portal to understanding a type of mind that needs to be understood."

— Michael Krasny, Host of KQED's Forum Program, Public Radio of Northern California
