The Examined Life How We Lose and Find Ourselves

The Examined Life How We Lose and Find Ourselves

Author: Stephen Grosz Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/01/2013

Longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award 2013. We are all storytellers - we make stories to make sense of our lives. But it is not enough to tell tales. There must be someone to listen. In his work as a practising psychoanalyst, Stephen Grosz has spent the last twenty-five years uncovering the hidden feelings behind our most baffling behaviour. The Examined Life distils over 50,000 hours of conversation into pure psychological insight, without the jargon. This extraordinary book is about one ordinary process: talking, listening and understanding. Its aphoristic and elegant stories teach us a new kind of attentiveness. They also unveil a delicate self-portrait of the analyst at work, and show how lessons learned in the consulting room can reveal as much to him as to the patient. These are stories about our everyday lives: they are about the people we love and the lies that we tell; the changes we bear, and the grief. Ultimately, they show us not only how we lose ourselves but how we might find ourselves too.

Doch die Kraft der Worte helfen uns auch, uns wiederzufinden.Jedes Mal wenn Amanda nach Hause kommt, glaubt sie, dass ihre Wohnung in die Luft fliegt. Graham langweilt wirklich jeden in kurzester Zeit. Daniel verliert seinen Geldbeutel und will es nicht wahrhaben: In den Merkwurdigkeiten unseres Verhaltens zeigt sich das Unbewusste. Dort liegen unsere Probleme verborgen."e;Diese brillante Mischung aus beharrlicher Detektivarbeit, bemerkenswertem Mitgefuhl und reinster, unendlicher Neugier fur die Eigenheiten des menschlichen Herzens macht diese Geschichten so vollkommen fesselnd."e; Sunday Times
