The Metaphysics of Power: Reflections on the Basic Framework of Psychology, Community, Politics and Spiritual Formation

It is a way of temporarily organizing the clutter in the garage of my mind so that I know where to find things when I want to use them again. I don’t think that my ideas on these matters are fully formed yet.

Second, I am writing this essay in order to make available to others a sketch of the basic interpretive framework I use to make sense of things.
