9780062506610: We?ve Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy and the World?s Getting Worse

Jarring contemporary notions of psychology and politics, and pushing beyond them to offer the beginnings of new paradigms, this book examines the legacy of psychotherapy. It exposes psychology as an ideology that collaborates with traditional notions of individualism - notions that are no longer tenable. James Hillman is the author of "A Blue Fire", "Interviews", "The Dream and the Underworld", "The Myth of Analysis" and "Re-visioning Psychology". Michael Ventura is the author of "Shadow Dancing in the U.S.A.".

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'

Book Description HarperSan Francisco, San Francisco, Ca., Softcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: None issued. First Harper Paperback Edition. Book Description: "We wanted an informal, wild, even funny book about therapy, a book that takes chances, breaks rules, runs red lights. To do this, we decided to stick to spoken, friendly (and hence irreverent) speech, and the conversational prose of letters. Why? Because psychotherapy wants and demands to be questioned, even atacked, in the form it prefers: staid, contained, well-behaved--in other words, like any established institution, the psychotherapy industry wants to be addressed in a manner that accepts its basic codes of conduct, and therefore, by implication, its basic goals, of conduct. But if you fall for that, then instead of questioning those codes and goals, perhaps you are accepting them more than you know, reinforcing them by playing by their rules." (Book Preface).
