    Keen s insights on the way that women wield power over men and his advice about how men need to put women into perspective and see them as human beings are worthwhile, though a bit overblown to the point where I was reminded of Camille Paglia Keen is an engaging writer, but ultimately he argues from the false premise that humans were once peaceful goddess worshipers Because that isn t true a noble savage myth perpetuated by feminist anthropologists Keen s observations on human nature a Keen s insights on the way that women wield power over men and his advice about how men n...

    I m torn between the fourth and fifth starts on this one On one hand, Mr Keen does an excellent job of describing the need for authentic, thoughtful masculinity and detailing a process to achieve said state On the other, too much of Mr Keen s book is couched in semi poetry or the language of second wave feminism to really resonate with me In the end, Mr Keen states his purpose explicitly He isn t trying to explain the quintessential journey to masculinity, or even the average journey In I m torn between the fourth and fifth starts on this one On one hand, Mr Keen does an excellent job of describing the need for authentic, thoughtful masculinity and detailing a process to achieve said state On the other, too much of Mr Keen s book is couched in semi poetry or the language of second wave feminism to really resonate with me In the end, Mr Keen states his purpose explicitly He isn t trying to explain the quintessential journey to masculinity, or even the average journey In this book, he s detailing his own path, complete with personal revelations, a failed marriage and lot of self exa...

    Gifted to me and read in 1994 I remember very little now, but I found a lot to ponder reading it in my early 20s I wouldn t mind giving it another look to see how it fares as I close in on 50.

    Without having the physical space and only a virtual presence, Keen invites men on an initiatory journey to evaluate their masculinity Initially published in 1991, some of the contemporary references Keen makes are dated, but the mythological truths on which his thesis is based remain unsullied As should be the case, because Keen, like Bly before him, relies on the archetypes of the psyche to create his map of masculinity.Reading the reviews of this book, it is clear that Keen steps on a few n Without having the physical space and only a virtual presence, Keen invites men on an initiatory journey to evaluate their masculinity Initially published in 1991, some of the contemporary references Keen makes are dated, but the mythological truths on which his thesis is based remain unsullied As should be the case, because Keen, like Bly before him, relies on the archetypes of the psyche to create his map of masculinity.Reading the reviews of this book, it is clear that Keen steps on a few nerves, particularly those of ideological feminists He rather skewers the movement, which, as he points out, has lost its philosophical or, as he calls it, prophetic underpinnings Ideological feminism, he points out, is animated by a spirit of resentment, the tactic of blame, and the desire for vindictive triumph over men that comes out of the dogmatic assumption that women are the innocent victims of a male conspiracy I mention this because his critique of ideo...

    I met Sam Keen recently at an Esalen workshop in Big Sur, CA He was so profoundly amazing, honest, powerful, and wise, that I had to go back and re read Fire In The Belly Truly an American Hero, and rare human being on the same level of Aristotle, Plato and Socrates This is a modern day philosopher that is truly a great man, father, writer, and American.He is someone to be paid attention to in our age of distraction and bullshit from our phony leaders who suck up to the lobbyists paid for b I met Sam Keen recently at an Esalen workshop ...

    Read audiobook version What is the meaning of masculinity and does it have a modern shade As a reader, I typically dismiss analyses of manhood as self indulgent and ephemeral So what if we are suddenly enlightened on the true injustices faced by modern men Would it help us better feed the hungry and dress the poor Nevertheless I li...
