A unique collaboration between a philosopher and a psychiatrist, this volume provides information on the scientific, philosophical, and political value of psychotherapy, focusing on its capacity to enhance autonomy and emotional freedom. The book also treats the moral and clinical issues that may arise in different forms of therapy—analytic, behavioral, and systemic—and explores possible solutions. In addition the author discusses the need for a code of practice for psychotherapists, as well as expansion of state-funded treatment for the needy, while considering the future role of psychotherapy in the modern world.
