Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - ADDICTION

Recognising – Understanding – Overcoming

It's a fine line between indulgence and addiction. Liberate yourself from dependency!

Addictions increasingly dominate our society. This has been further exacerbated by the pandemic, which has led to greater psychological strain and consequently an increased risk of addictive behaviour. When we yearn to experience moments of pleasure with growing frequency, we pay for it with the loss of our personal freedom. Quite often, even the search for this moment becomes addictive. And addiction can revolve around many things: cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, food, work, internet, shopping, gambling and more. 'Addiction' by Georg Psota and Michael Horowitz explores addictive disorders and their causes in all their forms and variations, and offers guidance on overcoming dependency and finding a way back to a freer, more balanced life.

Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - Fear


Fear is a basic human emotion, but it shouldn’t rule a person’s life. Everyone feels fear at certain times. It is a primal feeling that can dominate our being. Nothing is as defining as mental anxiety. Fear paralyses us. Makes us ill. But it can also drive us to peak performance. Fear opens the gates of the human psyche for numerous mental disturbances: Panic, phobias and personal worries, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictions. What is the nature of fear? What function does it have? How can fear be utilised or overcome? Why do people seek out fear by watching horror films or by participating in extreme sports? In their new book, Georg Psota and Michael Horowitz provide answers to these questions and present a way out of fear.

Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - The vast lands of our mind

On our mental state in a crazy world

What is good for our mental wellbeing, from our baby years to old age? We live in times where mental illness and confusion are on the rise, our society is rapidly changing, and people are more and more stressed and overwhelmed. Only a few years ago, philosophers described this phenomenon as "a society of fatigue". Increasingly this fatigue seems to expand into fear and helplessness. The authors take readers on a journey through the wondrous world of our psyche. They answer questions that we have all encountered when our minds enter a state of emergency and they ask further questions in a world that's becoming crazier each day.

Rotraud A. Perner - The Unrepentant Society

We live in a world where corruption, deception and violence, relentless careerism and unlimited greed are accepted by nearly everyone. Barely anyone asks: Do things have to be this way? What happened to an individual and collective sense of responsibility? Why do less and less people have a sense for injustice? Rotraud A. Perner embarks on a quest to find out why the courage to take on responsibility seems to be lost. She analizes the causes and describes a path to a better, more compassionate world. Perner not only delivers one of the most fascinating analyses of today’s world, she also points out the purifying power of repentance and the many possibilities of a culture of honesty.

Georg Fraberger - How do I become me - Between body, heart and mind

Zwischen Körper, Verstand und Herz

We are taught to set ourselves targets. We train our body and function in accordance with social protocols. We try to be successful and a perfect partner in matters of the heart. But this balancing act is often not achieved. The body becomes tired and threatens to buckle under the stress, or we experience inner conflict. But who is in the right: body, heart or mind? How do I become me, and who am I? Our thoughts appear to be free, but in truth are tied to our body. Georg Fraberger, himself severely physically disabled from birth, illustrates how we can lead a balanced life through the harmonious connection of body, heart and mind.
