Editorial Reviews

Review

`I originally came to psychology with high hopes of studying the richness of human behaviour and experience... It took me a long time to realise that much of the content of courses laundered and trivialised human experience, reducing it to straightjackets of theory, such that the resultant hotchpotch seemed totally remote and alien to my life and concerns.

I began to think there must be something wrong with me, but from time to time discovered the occasional book that restored my faith in people within the discipline (or allied to it) who seemed genuinely interested in what others were experiencing. To those gems... I would add Spinelli's The Interpreted World.

This is a beautiful book. I was moved by the concern the author demonstrates in communicating with his readership... Spinelli has taken great care to explain very clearly the key issues and to give examples that all of us can share... It succeeds as an excellent and comprehensive introductory source text for the scholar new to the phenomenological orientation, as well as for those more experienced readers who need to return to, and clarify, central arguments and concepts' - Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis

`This book is highly recommended to a wide range of people as a clear and systematic introduction to phenomenological psychology... the book has set the stage for possible new colloquia between the phenomenological and other approaches in psychology' - Changes

`As a trainee interested in matters existential, I have been put off in the past by the long-winded and confusing texts usually available in academic libraries. Thankfully, here is a text that remedies that situation... [it] provides a readable and insightful account' - Clinical Psychology Forum

`An excellent "primer" in phenomenological psychology... clearly written and jargon-free... Spinelli utilizes everyday life experiences and experiments and demonstrations from mainstream psychology to clarify phenomenological principles... I highly recommend [this] book' - Journal of Phenomenological Psychology
