Rezension von Jan Stensson

Lesen Sie hier Auszüge aus der Besprechung:

»In this book, Kakar has collected eight essays ranging over the period from 1985 to 2010. The subtitle of the book gives a more precise direction for what it is about: ›Psychoanalyse im Dialog mit nicht-westlichen Gesellschaften‹ ... Kakar is in an exceptional position to discuss this issue. He is Indian by birth and a practicing psychoanalyst in India, having received his psychoanalytic training at the Sigmund Freud Institute in Frankfurt.«

»When I started reading, I did not expect to find anything that would touch the basic tenets of psychoanalytic theory and practice. I was wrong. In a gentle way, Kakar juxtaposes psychoanalytic thinking and theory as it began and evolved in Western cultures, and what happens in its meeting with Indian culture. From this aspect, he demonstrates how culturally determined psychoanalytic theory is.«

»This book is recommended reading for all psychoanalysts and psychotherapists who want to widen their horizons.«
