Life Two Of The Most Magnificent Thinkerstwo of the most magnificent thinkers the 20th century Yalom at his best Mind blowing book Mixing up Nietzsche philosophy and psychology by Irvin Yalom is just brilliant Also a pretty good fiction Enjoyed every second of reading this book The Doctor of DespairThe fin de siecle Viennese satirist Karl Kraus took a dim view of the emerging field of psychiatry Psychoanalysis is that mental illness for which it regards itself as therapy And somewhat surprisingly this
Is The Main Theme Of This Novelthe main theme of this novel an eminent psychotherapist Psychiatry is indeed a field of Byzantine relationships Perhaps that is Yalom s pointFriedrich Nietzsche and Josef Breuer never really met but Yalom puts them in an intense relationship of mutual therapy each believing that the other is the patient and he the therapist Breuer Freud s mentor and the discoverer of the psychoanalytic talking cure is acutely depressed Nietzsche the as yet unknown philosopher suffers from debilitating migraines Nietzsche seeks to teach Breuer about freedom by which he means a sort of resignation to one s fate Breuer sees his task as revealing Nietzsche s emotional reality to himself Neither succeeds But in their failures they accomplish remarkable psychological things with themselves by trying to help the other Breuer frees himself from his obsession with a patient and Nietzsche earns how to reduce the severity of his migrainesIt appears then that Karl Kraus was on to something important as far as Yalom is concerned Kraus summarised the situation thus My unconscious knows about the consciousness of the psychologist than his consciousness knows about my unconscious Psychoanalysis is Byzantine indeed Does anyone really understand its mechanism and effects Yalom seems to doubt it Beach reading for the brainy set Keeping in mind that this is one of Yalom s teaching novels envisioned not to entertain or even to achieve artistically but to serve as a type of iterary experiential earning tool for therapists and therapists to be really helps with tolerating the expository nature of much of the book Also Yalom s nerdy and passionate enthusiasm is infectious and if one surrenders to it it allows the reader to join in with the fun he clearly was having writing this imagined relationship strengthening the ideological connection he swears by between psychotherapy and existentialism Thanks to this book I have grown to ove respect and have a tender spot in my heart for Nietzsche Based on the infamous uote God is Dead I always took him to be an arrogant man who didn t know what he was talking about A book ike this helps me take Nietzsche in his own context It is so easy to read fun intellectually stimulating and I keep feeling that I am getting and educated Nietzsche had such a gentle soul but in his books he sounded shrill often combative How is that Well it s no great mystery If no one will Prisoner of Midnight listen it s only natural to shout p195 He wrote for us for you and me as his philosophy was aboutife and for BOSH!: The Cookbook: Simple Recipes.

1992 novel by Irvin D Yalom The novel starts with Dr Josef Breuernovel by Irvin D Yalom The novel starts with Dr Josef Breuer in a cafe in Venice Italy waiting for Lou Salom who was involved with Friedrich Nietzsche She has written a The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River letter stating that the future of the philosophy of Germany is at stake and that the German philosopher needs help desperately The plot develops into a therapy where Breuer needs to have his soul treated ie to help him get over a patient who he treated for hysteria and with whom he has fallen inove whereas Nietzsche needs help with his migraines Influenced by the revolutionary ideas of his young disciple Sigmund Freud Josef Breuer starts the dangerous strategy that will mean the origin of the psychoanalysis Thanks to their unusual relation both I am not in the habit of trashing a book However since this novel had been published as a Perennial Classic there is no danger that I might destroy a writer s career However the choice of this book as a classic THIEME Atlas of Anatomy: Head and Neuroanatomy left me perplexed why this book is held in such a high regardThe premise of Yalom s novel is interesting Get two of the most innovative thinkers of modern times to meet And then what Friederich Nietzsche and Josef Breuer the father of modern philosophy and the father of modern psychoanalysis and a friend of the young Freud had never met inife But what if they had I would have expected some new explosive ideology to burst out of this fictional years ong relationship Sort of 1 1 3 But this is not the case beyond some personal epiphanies No new discipline emerges Further in exploring each character Yalom regurgitates their respective theories while failing to move into the realm of new intellectual challenge either one of them might have presented to the other Many of the truths the characters cite have by now become so common knowledge that they sound nonsensical On rare occasions the novel brings some forgotten interesting statement mostly from Nietzsche but not enough to spend time with 300 pages of talking heads In the years I was honing my writing skills at writing workshops not a single page of Yalom s dialogues would have passed a writing instructor s scrutiny It would have been dismissed for its amateurishness and
