Editorial Reviews

Review

Existential psychology is more relevant to the contemporary world than ever before. This dynamic and provocative anthology not only presents an authoritative history and descriptions of the topic, but includes chapters by Chinese psychologists who have found ways in which existentialism both resonates and contrasts with Asian wisdom traditions. This is a cutting edge book that needs not only to be read, but to be applied to the human condition, both East and West. Stanley Krippner, PhD Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School Co-Editor, The Psychological Impact of War Trauma on Civilians --Book Cover

Review

Face-to-face interaction in China led to virtual collaboration in writing this book. With the perspectives of scholars in both the USA and China represented, a true dialogic relationship is evident in this collection. Differences and difficulties in cultural understandings of existentialism are addressed forthrightly which deepens the reflection process that is a hallmark of existential psychology. Existential Psychology East-West also serves as a bridge to Chinese/Asian traditions as they are articulated from an existential perspective. What a terrific model for cross-cultural collaboration and dialogue! David Lukoff, PhD Core Faculty, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology

More About the Author

Louis Hoffman, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and faculty member at Sabyrook University in San Francisco, California, where he also serves as director of the Existential, Humanistic, and Transpersonal Psychology Specialization as well as serving as co-director of the International Psychology and Socially Engaged Spirituality Certificates. Dr. Hoffman is also the immediate past-president of the Society of Humanistic Psychology and co-founder of the Zhi Mian International Institute for Existential-Humanistic Psychology. Although the majority of his published works are scholarly in nature, he is also a published poet with interest in diverse genres of writing and literature. His first several books explored the interface of religious and spiritual issues with psychology, often integrating an existential, humanistic, and depth psychology perspectives. In Existential Psychology East-West, Dr. Hoffman's focus shifted to a more primary focus on the existential perspectives in psychology. In addition to writing and teaching, Dr. Hoffman also maintains a clinical practice, is a regular speaker at conferences, and travels to China to engage in dialogues and provide trainings on existential psychology and the psychology of religion/spirituality.

Format: Paperback
Eastern thought and Western psychology have been lifelong interests of mine. The book's deft integration delivers the wisdom that we each yearn for and already possess. This book helped me feel more engaged and alive. Highly recommended for the therapist or general reader.
