Product description


In case you did not know, Michael Eigen is a living master of psychoanalysis. This work, a beautiful distillation of his thought, is like an intimate conversation with the wisest of the wise, the kindest of the kind. Reading it, I wanted to shout with joy that the book exists and that he is in our midst. --Mark Epstein, MD, author of 'Thoughts without a Thinker' and 'Going to Pieces without Falling Apart'

In this intimate portrait of Michael Eigen's encounter with colleagues in Seoul, Korea, we see the man we have valued as scholar, therapist, and mystic in a new role: teacher. Few meditations on psychoanalysis - or on life itself - have the simplicity and depth, passion and compassion of these conversations that reach across continents, generations, cultures. Read this book and grow wiser. --Nancy McWilliams, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University

There is something rightfully alluring about any thinker engaging with a live audience. We can think of Lacan and Bion in the psychoanalytical world. Eigen enters this realm and his freedom to speak his mind - to me the essence of what it means to be psychoanalytical - is so refreshing, so necessary. He has inspired the other, here in the form of the Korean audience who are clearly caught up in the intellectual intensity of his presence. So too will any open minded reader who joins the Oriental in hearing from the Occidental. --Christopher Bollas, author of 'Shadow of the Object' and 'The Freudian Moment'
