Local notes

How does the spirit come into clinical work?
Through the analyst?
In the analysand’s work in the analysis?
What happens to human destructiveness if we embrace a vision of non-violence?
Do dreams open us to spiritual life?
What is the difference between repetition compulsion and ritual?
How does religion feed terrorism? What happens if analysts must wrestle with hate in themselves?
Do psychotherapy and spirituality compete, or contradict, or converse with each other?
What does religion uniquely offer, beyond what psychoanalysis can do, to our surviving and thriving?
This book raises and discusses these and many other important questions of our time.
