The first book to initiate a formal dialogue between well-known mainstream psychologists and those authors who explore the links between the two practices. Nine primary chapters on the interface between Buddhism and psychoanalysis are followed by nine commentaries written by mainstream psychoanaltic thinkers. These are in turn followed by replies written by the authors of the primary chapters.
"An extraordinary book...innovative, fascinating and useful. The brilliant opening essay sets the bar high and the entire voulme is full of wonderful surprises. Chief among them are the contributions of many respected psychoanalysts who consistently defy expectations and push the thinking of their Buddhist coleagues to new horizons. This is a beautifully conceived work." Mark Epstein.
"Certain to become the emblematic book of this burgeoning relationship, given the range of cutting-edge psychoanalytic views represented, the beautifully edited dialogical format, and above all the urgency of the crisis of meaning in Western culture." Professor Andrew Samuels.
" A breakthrough book that will make all readers reexamine their thinking about psychoanalysis and religion." Lewis Aron.
