Download Seeking Ezekiel: Text and Psychology by David J. Halperin PDF

By David J. Halperin

In Seeking Ezekiel, David J. Halperin argues that the biblical ebook of Ezekiel presents colossal information regarding its author's psychology and divulges his character in substantial intensity. Psychoanalytic research of the booklet yields a coherent portrait of its writer: a marvelously talented but profoundly disturbed guy, suffering from internal conflicts over his sexual longings and fears.

Ezekiel, Halperin argues, used to be ruled by way of a pathological dread and loathing of lady sexuality. He expresses this emotional stance within the symbolic language of desires (his imaginative and prescient of a temple polluted by way of idolatry); in a skinny cover of historic allegory (his obscenely picture representations of Israel and Jerusalem as promiscuous wives); and in his self-described habit at his wife's death.

Ezekiel additionally demonstrates a deeply ambivalent angle towards a dominant male determine. in most cases, he initiatives the optimistic parts of his ambivalence onto his God, its detrimental parts onto different men. but the opposite may also ensue, and this does a lot to provide an explanation for the aggravating cruelty and arbitrariness of Ezekiel's God.

Any mental research of a guy useless for 2500 years will run into bold methodological problems. Halperin establishes the legitimacy of his technique by means of arguing that it allows the answer of a variety of long-recognized textual difficulties.

The implications of Halperin's research expand some distance past the bounds of Biblical scholarship. The sexual pathology that he attributes to Ezekiel has humanity for many of its heritage, tainting the kinfolk of fellows and ladies internationally. Ezekiel's robust effect on posterity has performed its half in strengthening the grip of this pathology. by means of figuring out Ezekiel, humans could come to a greater knowing of his disease inside themselves and therefore finally come to discover healing.
