This is a collection of thirteen essays and lecture transcripts from the 1970s and early 1980s. Most of them have held up well, despite their age. In fact, the essay that feels the most dated to me ("The Moon, the Four Phases of the Feminine") only seems that way because the topic has been well-discussed and is no longer as unusual as when Hand wrote the essay.
