Iain Ferguson’s Politics of the Mind, reviewed in January SR, is my book of 2017. There is however one notable omission and this is any reference to mindfulness.
I understand why. It is for the same reason that R D Laing’s contribution is dismissed when he wanders off into mysticism. It is because they involve a recognition that there is a spiritual element to human nature.
If you are an historical materialist then Iain’s book is the full story.
