HH The Dalai Lama Lecture 2004

Publications Catalogue

Since its inception in 1990 the Temenos Academy has
sought to promote the best of its lectures through the
extended medium of publication. Where appropriate,
we have done this through the yearly issue of the
Temenos Academy Review, as well as in separate
booklets. All these have been welcomed by a worldwide
readership that is unable to attend our London-based
activities. These publications are presented with a
quality of design and production that we feel is
commensurate with their outstanding content.
This catalogue gives a complete listing of all
publications issued by the Academy. Eight issues of the
Temenos Academy Review and twenty-two Temenos
Academy Papers have been published (several of the
Papers are no longer available and others are in short
The Temenos Academy Review is the journal of the
Temenos Academy and is the successor to Temenos,
founded by Keith Critchlow, Brian Keeble, Kathleen
Raine and Philip Sherrard, which was first published in
1981 and reached its thirteenth and final issue in 1992.
The Review comprises a mixture of papers given at the
Academy and new work, including poetry, art, and
reviews. The Temenos Academy Papers are booklets
containing a single paper, or several related papers,
given as lectures at the Academy.
If ordering Temenos Academy Papers please include
one alternative title. If you wish to order four issues of
the Review you may claim a fifth free of charge.
The catalogue also includes two films:
Philip Sherrard, ‘Philip Sherrard: His Life & Work’, and
 ‘A Human Approach to World Peace’  by His Holiness
The Dalai Lama.
The Temenos Academy is a Registered Charity. Most
of our publications have appeared as the result of the
generosity of our supporters. We are always very keen to
hear from people interested in supporting our
publications programme, and who wish to help the
Academy’s effort to share its work with a wider

On the Nature & Significance
Of the Crafts

W R Lethaby   Edward Johnston   Ananda K Coomaraswamy

Brian Keeble
‘These three essays bring out brilliantly the fact that in our
present world, the ‘baby’ (the purpose of life) has clearly been
thrown out with the heavily polluted ‘bathwater’ (the excesses
of industrial materialism). What all three of Keeble’s subjects
agree upon is that the human relationship to work has too
frequently been averaged downwards in the direction of its
least meaningful dimension. This pollution of the spirit, not
surprisingly, produces a polluted world&ldots;Brian Keeble’s analysis
of the thoughts of his chosen subjects clearly indicates the essential
underlying factors that have led us to our so-called post-industrial
state of mind; a condition that is, to say the least, unsatisfactory
and unsustainable. For this reason these essays should be of value
to those who are responsible for the present state of the arts, not
only in our schools, but in the wider arts of working and living to
some purpose consistent with our deepest nature. I hope this
will reach a wide audience as it deals, with rare insight, with issues
that are vital to us all.’
