About the Author

Roberto Assagioli, M.D. was a psychiatrist and a student of Freud who found the tenets of psychoanalysis to limited in scope. He went on to formulate a psychological perspective that could consider all aspects of the human condition; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual and integrate them into a Whole being. Dr. Assagioli died in the latter part of the twentieth century.

Roberto Assagioli's ideas can be encapsulated in a nutshell (egg) with the Greek concept of Gnothi Seauton - Know Thyself. Psychosynthesis allows for an in-depth journey of discovery that will be different for every individual; yet the journey embodies similar experiences attained through similar techniques.
The text is in a slightly clinical style, which is not surprising considering that Assagioli had a background in Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry. This book was most likely written to showcase his Psychosynthesis concepts to his peers in Psychiatry who had a Freudian background.
However, don't let the prospect of a slightly clinical styled book put you off. If you are interested specifically in Psychosynthesis it is an essential read, and also highly recommended if you are in any way interested in Transpersonal Psychology or Self Development.
Assagioli's comments on the "Spirit of Synthesis" bring to mind the concept (doctrine) of the 4 Elements in Western Qabalistic thought, where Earth, Air, Fire and Water are brought together (synthesised) into harmony to give rise to Spirit (i.e. all 4 elements when in harmony are pure/refined spirit).
Assagioli comments that the most important results in Psychotherapy have come about from independent researchers rather than academic psychologists. This is perhaps due to the independent researchers (seemingly he refers mainly to medical and psychiatric doctors) have a great deal of experiential evidence and build their theories from observing a vast array of clients, rather than formulating theories based on laboratory experiments, other people's theories, or personal fancy.
A key diagram in Psychosynthesis is the 'Egg diagram' that provides a simple but effective map of consciousness and framework for understanding the psyche.

I, a Jungian psychotherapist, had never heard of this man in all my training and I cannot understand why. He is more comprehensive than Freud and Jung and was a contemporary of theirs. His system starts with the basics and takes you all the way into spirituality. He offers practical exercises every step of the way.

While Roberto Assagioli published this book in 1965, it is not only a classic to transpersonal psychology, but extremely important today. Assagioli integrates the personal self and the transpersonal self into a fully functioning being.
