THE MYTH OF TANTALUS. A Scaffolding for an Ontological Personality Theory.

St. Lucia: University of Queensland Press, 1979. Tan boards, orange endpapers. [10], 325 pp. Fine copy. Jacket has light spine sunning, else fine. "THE MYTH OF TANTALUS endeavours to formulate a new personality-core theory based on some vectors which have not been fully utilized before in the behavioural and social sciences .... Existentialistic and ontological premises which have been largely dealt with by philosophers and novelists are here intregrated into the theoretical structure. Some aspects of mysticism, meditation and religious experiences as psycho-sociological phenomena are also dealt with. The empirical anchors are taken from varied sources ranging from the topical issues of Arab-Jewish relationships to the divergent personalities of the founders of the Hassidic movement." - jacket flap. Shoham at the time of publication was a professor of law at Tel Aviv University.
