Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 19 May 23 in morality, Rational living, Rational Thinking |

  We have been having a fascinating discussion at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup about REBT and values.   A member points out that everyone has a collection of values; things and qualities which are important to them., and asks what REBT says about values and–more interesting–how do we know whether our values are right or wrong?  3,365 total views, […]

Even though I don’t I don’t think I’ll convert the world to rationality, I may influence an occasional person here and there. And every small addition to the sum total of rationality is precious.                      ~Isaac Asimov -1988″  3,889 total views,  2 views today Originally posted 2017-07-28 07:02:06.

Are you “rational”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 16 May 23 in Basics, Happiness, Rational living, Rational Thinking |

  The word rational is obviously fundamental to REBT. After all, we are Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. However, I am afraid this is misleading to many as REBT uses the word in a special way . . .  16,032 total views,  3 views today Originally posted 2015-08-29 05:33:32.

Would you like to play a game?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 11 May 23 in Rational living, Rational Thinking, z-monthly |

Would you like to play a game? This game only has one rule. It’s based on the premise that you had two parents, and you agree that–so far as we know–every human being who has ever lived had two parents.  Agreed?  If you think I’m trying to trick you, take a minute to think about […]

Is Neo the “One”?

Read “Enlightenment Now” Now!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 19 Apr 23 in Books & Media, bookshop, Rational living, Rational Thinking, Read any good books lately? |

Stoic Philosophy and REBT

  The gods have released you from accountability for your parents, your siblings, your body, your possessions – for death and for life itself.

  My friend Jimmy from the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup is feeling gloomy about current events, and seeing some of the really nasty things going on in the news as heralding the breakdown of modern society.  He is hardly the first to make that observation.
