In Promises, Oaths, and Vows: On the Psychology of Promising, Herbert Schlesinger addresses these questions, drawing on the literature of moral development in children; the psychotherapy of a patient who regularly broke promises that were unnecessary in the first place; those who were regarded as "promising youngsters" who did not fulfill their "promise"; and those who feared making a promise, Manufacturer: Routledge. The final set of chapters enters the realm of what is usually called “applied psychoanalysis.” Schlesinger provides a tour de force study of Greek drama and of Shakespeare through the lens of promises, oaths and vows, and he then deals with various forms of promising in religion. Expert psychoanalytic clinician and educator Herbert J. Schlesinger presents Promises, Oaths, and Vows: On the Psychology of Promising, a thoughtful psychological study of a crucial lynchpin to modern civil society--that most people will do what they say they will do, and live up to their explicit or implicit promises. His seminal investigation of this all but neglected topic in the clinical literature is as timely as it is scholarly, and – with the title firmly in mind – Promises, Oaths, and Vows is assured to be a worthy addition to any clinician’s library and a provoking investigation into Nietzsche’s notion of man as "the animal who makes promises.".

Apr 04,  · Sometimes the statement of promise indicates that one has taken an oath or vowed to do something; in that case, the rule of oaths or vows applies on his statement.

In Genesis (regarding oaths, promises, swearing and vows) we saw: Abraham and Abimelech come to agreements and honor their oaths. -Yahweh swears by Himself to bless Abraham and his seed. Jan 02,  · Oaths are binding, even when spoken frivolously or privately as part of everyday conversation. A promise is a promise, and there is no loophole in God’s eyes to allow a person to renege on an oath. So, Jesus was not condemning all forms of promises, contracts, or agreements. Jewish people made many promises by swearing oaths or making vows. It was a way of trying to persuade someone they were telling the truth, covering up a lie, or reassuring someone that what was being promised would all work out fine. People could be very superstitious so using God’s name could seem to validate a promise. Apr 16,  · [Download] Promises, Oaths, and Vows: On the Psychology of Promising Online Books.
