Editorial Reviews


In writing Divine Therapy Sayers does a great service for psychoanalytic scholarship. Putting her focus on love, mysticism and religion, she requires us to look beyond the political battlefield that we call psychoanalytic theory and technique. She asks us to think about the ways in which passions can be transformative and enlivening in an individual's professional life, regardless of one's psychoanaltic allegiance. In the 1980's, singer Tina Turner soulfully belted out: "What's love got to do with it?" After reading Diving Therapy, I believe the answer to this question is: everything; at least when it comes to the work and well being of a psychoanalyst. Contemporary Psychoanalysis In this enthralling book Sayers intertwines psychoanalytic theory, biography and theology to describe the strange terrain in which love, therapy and religion meet. Chapters on key figures in the history of psychological therapy - Freud, Jung, William James and Melanie Klein among them, offer a lucid, acute summary and critique of a complex body of theory, with the whole held together by a focus on the power of relationships, including what believers call faith, to transform and renew life ... This literate and scholarly book is a good introduction to these complex issues. Mental Health Today

This book is a fabulous historical and psychological account of mysticism ad science taking a concise look at some of the greatest minds in the development and confluence of where the two fields meet. This book has been a dream come true in regards to studying how the great minds of science integrate spirituality into their philosophies and likewise how mystics will often stumble upon and pioneer different and expanding fields of science. I could not say enough about this book but that I have no more time.
