9780062504098: Hundred Years of Psychotherapy...and the World's Getting Worse

Furious, funny, and freewheeling, this incisive blitz exposes psychology as an ideology that collaborates with traditional notions of individualism--notions that are no longer tenable--and rips asunder our most cherished ideas of why we are and who we are.

Product Description:

An examination of the legacy of psychotherapy which outlines a new vision of the psyche and society. Michael Ventura is the author of Shadow-dancing in the USA, Night Time and Losing Time.

From the Back Cover:

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

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

"All sorts of fresh ideas dart back and forth as in a successful jam session … jittery, funky, sophisticated brainstorming."
'Los Angeles Times'

"Range[s] energetically over such subjects as psychotherapy, politics and aesthetics, method acting and post-war ideas of the self, child abuse and inner child theory, romantic love, and America's tradition of anti-intellectualism … Seductive precisely because it offers two live voices actively engaged."
'Washington Post'

"Two imaginative voices playing off each other as they strive for a new paradigm. A wonderful combination of feeling and intellect."
'Spalding Gray'

"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 … Ventura and Hillman deserve our thanks as well as our closest attention."
'Thomas Pynchon'
