In his Fragments of a Journal "The ultimate implications of psychoanalysis are not far removed from Zen."
Decades have passed, but therapists, Buddhist practitioners, and other interested readers continue to tease out the implications of this complex relationship. It is surprising, then, that no book has replaced the 1960 classic Zen Buddhism and Psychoanalysis, with essays by D.T. Suzuki, Erich Fromm, and Richard De Martino. Now, in this alchemical new collection, psychoanalysist Anthony Molino offers a bold alloy of these two major disciplines.
Both ambitious and timely,The Couch and the Tree is a two-part anthology that spans and documents a unique cross-fertilization of Eastern and Western thought. While part one provides a historical overview of the classic writings in thisa far-reaching, adventurous dialogue (including the works from Fromm, Suzuki, Jung, Hisamatsu, Watts, and Horney, to name only a few). Part Two features a series of brilliant contemporary works, many appearing here for the first time. Included are essays by such innovative thinkers as Adam Phillips, Mark Epstein, Masao Abe, Polly Young-Eisendrath, Nina Coltart, and Mich'l Eigen. Most notable perhaps is a conversation -on the question "Is There an Unconscious in Buddhist Teaching?" - between the psychoanalysist Joyce McDougall and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. A truly essential collection and scope, The Couch and the Tree marks a watershed in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural exploration.
