Publisher's Description

Escaping from the prisons within: Ethics as a process of liberation This book is a pioneer in its field: for the first time a book and guide is designed for the incarcerated population. At the same time, it offers and proposes a moral component for not only academic programs but rehabilitation and self help as well. The author proposes a "moral therapy" as a necessary resource in the process of being and becoming more human. It deals with a humanizing vision of ethics, as it tries to rescue positive and therapeutic elements that are at the core of the human soul. Escaping from the prisons within: Ethics as a process of liberation, aims to incorporate a vital dimension that is missing in our programming to inmates: the ethical component or "moral therapy." This therapy assists the reader in escaping from some of our interior prisons: mind, heart, time and environment. Given the strong undercurrent of philosophy and humanistics, the text incites and invites a profound reflection and personal response. By this approach, ethics awaken and nourish not only the thinking man, but especially the "doer," the active man, as he becomes aware of the supreme effort and sublime pathway toward self-liberation. Rogelio Cuesta Fernndez was born in Spain. He holds a Doctorate in Theology from the University of Santo Toms in Rome, and a Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from New York University. He has extensive experience teaching the humanities and Theology in Europe as well as in the United States. In addition, the author taught for 23 years for the Department of Corrections in a maximum-security facility in New York State.
