Otto F. KernbergDrs. Berke and Schneider have managed to show convincingly how basic concepts of psychoanalysis and Kabbalistic thinking overlap and deal—within different theoretical perspectives, with fundamental problems of the human psyche, in health and illness.
While scholarly reviewing central aspects of both disciplines in close comparative analyses, they are able to provide the psychoanalyst with a clear and comprehensive understanding of the Kabbalah for the modern mind. By the same token, they convey a clear and profound summary of contemporary psychoanalytic understanding to the expert in the Kabbalah.
By the same process, the educated layman may acquire an intelligent, thoughtful introduction to the relationship between psychotherapeutic thinking and the spiritual dimension of an important field of Jewish religion. It is an important, thought-provoking contribution to the very actual discussion of the encounter of religion and psychological science in the light of our present knowledge of the unconscious determinants of behavior.
