Emmy is rightfully known as the foremost teacher, writer and speaker on existential philosophy and psychotherapy in the world today. Her books have been translated into many languages, bringing the messages of Heidegger, Jaspers and Sartre, together with her own unique philosophical stance on life, to a worldwide audience. This book is an essential read for any trainee or practising mental health professional who wants to find out more about existential ideas and how to apply them in their work with clients. Full of practical illustrations, this book allows professional or lay person alike to familiarise themselves with powerful reflections on human existence, from Aristotle and the ancient Greeks to the British, Continental and American existentialism of the present day. It also contains invaluable pointers as to how these reflections can revitalise our own experience of being human. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to make the most of being alive or to help others deal with life's challenges and absurdity.
