Book Review - 'Spiritus Contra Spiritum'
Many of these items are contrary to AA philosophy. Their publication here does not mean that the Grapevine endorses or approves them; they are offered solely for your information.
It was Carl Jung, in a letter to Bill W. (Grapevine, January 1963), who said: "You see, 'alcohol' in Latin is spiritus, and you use the same word for the highest religious experience as well as for the most depraving poison. The helpful formula therefore is: spiritus contra spiritum."
