We've Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy--And the World's Getting Worse

by

We've Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy--And the World's Getting Worse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A free-wheeling look at the legacy of psychotherapy that rips asunder our most cherished notions of why we are who we are — complete with a new vision for the psyche and society.

Review:

"Finally somebody has begun to talk out loud about what must change, and what must be left behind, if we are to navigate the perilous turn of this millennium and survive." Thomas Pynchon

Review:

"What a great dialogue between two wonderful minds and spirits. Gutsy and civilized, an unbeatable combination." Henry Jaglom

Review:

"One of the most exhilarating and culturally significant books I have read in years." Joanna Macy

Synopsis:

This furious, trenchant, and audacious series of interrelated dialogues and letters takes a searing look at not only the legacy of psychotherapy, but also practically every aspect of contemporary living--from sexuality to politics, media, the environment, and life in the city. James Hillman--controversial renegade Jungian psychologist, the man Robert Bly has called "the most lively and original psychologist we've had in America since William James"--joins with Michael Ventura--cutting-edge columnist for the L.A. Weekly--to shatter many of our current beliefs about our lives, the psyche, and society. Unrestrained, freewheeling, and brilliant, these two intellectual wild men take chances, break rules, and run red lights to strike at the very core of our shibboleths and perceptions.
