Giegerich reached this vantage point on the shoulders on Goethe, Nietzsche, and Jung. At this level, "communication" and "logic" become synonyms. This is shocking to the Western intellectual. We are used to "communication" being personal and filled with emotion, while logic is to essentialize to the bare, rigid structure beneath. What Giegerich shows, however, is that logic is an artistic expression--that's the message of the modern internet culture--with its social media, open-source music projects, and even our addiction to computer games.
Logic is communication from "one-to-many" instead of communication from "one-to-one", as we are used to visualizing it.
This process of communication is the culmination of centuries of evolution of the Western soul, and needs our minds' utmost attention. Are we astute enough to listen?
Clinical and theoretical work began and continued for the next five years (2006-2011). Approximately 1,000-1,500 veterans (and family members), including returning soldiers from the Iraq War were provided with that specific local psychological help. During the 5 years none of its patients committed suicide or complaint about the therapeutic perspective given. It was a success, but something peculiar happened:
Back in 1984, the psychological theory that had best adapted to local observations during clinical interventions had been the Analytic theory of Carl Jung. By 1992 it had been substituted by the Archetypal Theory of the American Psychologist, James Hillman. It was Hillman's theory the one being revised when the 2006 program started. Then, midway through the program, the Philosopher Enrique Eskenazi from Barcelona, Spain advised reading "The Soul's Logical Life". After reading the book, it became clear that the psychological thought presented by Wolfgang Giegerich in the book titled "The Soul's Logical Life" was necessary to provide theoretical comprehension of unusual administrative interventions happening at the time and requiring description during the program's final presentation.
"The Soul's logical Life" lacks an index but considering it is already a "classical", historical book, I have to give it five stars.
