Heart and Soul
By Mace, Chris (Edited by)
Philosophy's traditional concerns with the nature of knowledge, good conduct and the self cannot be ignored by psychotherapists, while the growth of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis have had a profound impact on philosophy. The essays in the books cover topics central to both psychotherapy and philosophy such as the nature of the self, motivation and subjectivity; the limits of certainty and objectivity in interpersonal situations; and the scope of narrative, dialogue and of therapy itself. Contributions draw on a wide range of different philosophical approaches and examine how they can deepen our understanding of the processes involved in different types of psychotherapy in a wide range of clinical settings.
