Anti-Arminians: The Anglican Reformed Tradition from Charles II to George I (Oxford Theological Monographs)

This booklet is a research of the Anglican Reformed culture (often inaccurately defined as Calvinist) after the recovery. Hampton units out to revise our photo of the theological international of the later Stuart interval. Arguing that the significance of the Reformed theological culture has often been underestimated, his examine issues to a community of conforming reformed theologians which incorporated a number of the so much well known churchmen of the age.

Sample text

Processes of recovery from this illness, however. Part of the reason we know so little may be due to the fact that, until fairly recently, we did not know that people recovered and therefore did not know to ask. Another reason may be that even if we do know to ask about recovery, we may not yet know how to ask in order to arrive at the right data. In other words, the processes involved in recovery may not lend themselves to discovery through our usual methods of clinical research. As Estroff suggests, we may be limited by our inherited models of disorder in our choices of ways of investigating them.

Torical interest, for example, are Daniel Paul Schreber’s Memoirs of My Nervous Illness (1955) and Clifford Beers’s A Mind That Found Itself (1935). Most first-person accounts in recent literature, however, have come from people who affiliate themselves more or less with the Mental Health Consumer/Survivor Movement described above. In addition to speaking out against system abuses and advocating for change, consumer/ survivors began writing about their experiences in the form of personal narratives at the beginning of the movement in the 1970s.

We need not look anywhere other than to experience to generate knowl­ edge about the nature, structures, and laws of experience. It is on this basis that we can ground the development of a qualitative psychology that takes as its subject matter the “more” of the meaning and motivations of our subjective life. Before moving on from this exegesis of the Husserliana, we should return to the issue of intersubjectivity introduced above and explain how the study of our subjective life requires the development of different methods for psychology.
