Ether, God & Devil & Cosmic Superimposition

Wilhelm Reich, translated by Therese Pol

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

These companion volumes, long out of print, are now presented together for the first time so that the reader may better grasp their essential unity.  In Ether, God and Devil, Wilhelm Reich describes the process of functional thinking and reveals how the inner logic of this objective thought technique led him to the discovery of cosmic orgone energy.
 
In Cosmic Superimposition, Reich steps beyond the character structure of man to an understanding of how man is rooted in nature.  The super-imposition of two orgone-energy systems which is demonstrable in the genital embrace is revealed as a common functioning principal that exists in all of nature.  Concluding this work, Reich returns to the human sphere "to ponder about the greatest riddle of all: the ability of man to think, and by mere thinking to know what nature is and how it works."
