The story of the woman taken in adultery features a dramatic confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees over whether the adulteress should be stoned as the law commands.
Author: Jennifer Knust
Publisher: Princeton University Press
The story of the woman taken in adultery features a dramatic confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees over whether the adulteress should be stoned as the law commands. In response, Jesus famously states, “Let him who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” To Cast the First Stone traces the history of this provocative story from its first appearance to its enduring presence today. Likely added to the Gospel of John in the third century, the passage is often held up by modern critics as an example of textual corruption by early Christian scribes and editors, yet a judgment of corruption obscures the warm embrace the story actually received. Jennifer Knust and Tommy Wasserman trace the story’s incorporation into Gospel books, liturgical practices, storytelling, and art, overturning the mistaken perception that it was either peripheral or suppressed, even in the Greek East. The authors also explore the story’s many different meanings. Taken as an illustration of the expansiveness of Christ’s mercy, the purported superiority of Christians over Jews, the necessity of penance, and more, this vivid episode has invited any number of creative receptions. This history reveals as much about the changing priorities of audiences, scribes, editors, and scholars as it does about an “original” text of John. To Cast the First Stone calls attention to significant shifts in Christian book cultures and the enduring impact of oral tradition on the preservation—and destabilization—of scripture.

MAIN RC 489 S47 C37 1995 CAST FIRST STONE ETHICS IN ANALYTIC
PRACTICE Edited and with an introduction by Lena B . Ross and Manisha Roy
Foreword by Adolf Guggenbühl - Craig University of Michigan - Flint Library 4
Author: Lena B. Ross
Who or what is really being served when an analytic relationship turns sexual? How can health best be restored to an impaired analyst? Do analytic training relationships teach overfamiliarity? Sixteen internationally known Jungian analysts examine the psychology of professional and not-so-professional patient relationships. Their thought-provoking essays will force you to pause, reflect, and question a little more before passing judgment. Codes of ethics evolve over time and may be different from culture to culture. Among the authors that add depth and understanding to current views of moral and ethical dilemmas are: Verena Kast from Zurich, Fred Plaut from Berlin, June Singer from San Francisco, Rosemary Gordon from London, and Lena B. Ross and Ann Belford Ulanov from New York City. Other authors practice in Israel, Italy, South Africa, and the United States. In the introduction to this collection of position papers, the editors write: Everyone was talking about ethics in analytic practice, but always from the somewhat narrow perspective of who had been reported to have done what to whom, and what, in a behavioral sense, should be done about it. It seemed to us that in the fury of the contemporary discourse, the one uniquely Jungian aspect was missing, that is, the symbolic attitude.
