Overview

Understanding Experience is a collection of innovative interdisciplinary essays that explore the human capacity for experience. The authors address the postmodern debate in contemporary psychotherapy and psychoanalysis through clinical case discussion and theoretical exogenesis.

The theories of Buber, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty and Satre are considered alongside the clinical work of Binswanger, Boss, Fromm, Laing and Lacan. By combining clinical data from psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with insights from European philosophy, this book seeks to bridge the paradigmatic divide between the natural sciences and the human sciences. It will be of great interest to academics and clinicians of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and to psychologists and social workers.
