Editorial Reviews

Review

?Kaplan and Schwartz have succeeded in writing an erudite and thought provoking book about the psychodynamics of attachment and individuation in the fabled lives of the ancient Greeks and Hebrews. The book is a fine contribution to a worthy tradition in behavioral science writing, represented by David Bakan, Ernest Becker, and a handful of other scholars who have sought to link modern psychology with classical writings and sacred texts in order to address issues of ultimate concern. Unfortunately, very few books like this are written anymore. Instead, academic psychologists are deluged by technical treatises and parochial reports that stick slavishly to the quantitative data at hand. Kaplan and Schwartz should be applauded for their refreshingly broad and bold interdisciplinary effort.?-Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences

Book Description
