Anthony Molino, a psychoanalyst, anthropologist, and award-winning translator of Italian literary works, has edited two collections of interviews with prominent psychoanalysts. He lives with his wife in Italy.
Molino, a psychoanalyst, anthropologist, and translator, has put together a timely collection of essays addressing the relevance of psychoanalysis and Buddhism to one another. The first section, with essays by Jung, Suzuki, Fromm, and Horney, among others, provides an overview of some of the better-known seminal works in this area, thus serving as an excellent foundation for the more contemporary examinations in the second section. It is hard to imagine a more thorough collection. Individual essays betray certain prejudices and dispositions toward particular schools of thought, but the final feeling of the collection is balanced. It becomes clear that psychoanalysis and Buddhism have much to offer one another, as they work essentially the same territory?examination of the elusive nature of the human mind. Highly recommended, especially for academic collections.?Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll.,
