(p.52) 4 Psychological Notions of Power
The Chosen Will Become Herds

Jonathan Garb

Yale University Press

This chapter explores the psychological perception of power by focusing on R. Yehuda Ha-Levi Leib Ashlag's circle. It explains that Ashlag assigned importance to the political dimension of power, though he tended to overlook the national dimension of power that was so significant for members of the R. Avraham Yizhak Ha-Kohen Kook circle and other Kabbalists. Ashlag's appeal to the psychological dimension of power won acclaim across the world, even reaching North America, while Kook's circle on the other hand, focused on the national dimension of power, which gained popularity with Jews and Israelis.

Keywords:   dimension of power, psychological dimension of power, national dimension of power, Kook's circle, Ashlag's circle, kabbalists
