The Schopenhauer Cure
The Schopenhauer Cure - Irvin D. Yalom Un très bon roman, laborieux du à sa profondeur, mais riche d'enseignement tant philosophiques que sur l'être humain. Un bon moment à passer si vous restez accrochés et que vous prenez le temps de vous intéresser à la profondeur des personnages.

Forays in psychotherapy: physician heal thyself first
When Nietzsche Wept: A Novel of Obsession - Irvin D. Yalom

I read this only halfway so I can't rate it beyond that, except that I am a fan of Yalom's books on psychotherapy. I bought this blend of fact and fiction at a time when I wanted to know more about Sandor Firenczi and his approach to therapy vs Freud's.

 

Yalom, from his other books, is a firm believer in the therapist's role in, and the benefits he derives from his patient's therapy. At a time when I was in need of psychotherapy but the skills and experience of psychiatrists like Yalom was not available to me, my shrink gave me the next best thing: introduced me to Yalom's books. I devoured them.

 

I can credit Yalom with helping me in my journey of self-understanding and with helping me live in a world that will never understand or accept all of me, just as I won't others.

 

Or even care.

 

Still, even halfway through When Nietzsche Wept, I couldn't help but think what a lot of ado about nothing. Chill, Nietzsche.

Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death
Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death - Irvin D. Yalom I honestly think Yalom is the only author who can write a self-help kind of book without ruining everything completely. His writing is really good and, as always, he makes me think of and at things. And think with seriousness, not just skim through important matters and forget, but compare, question, ponder on an endless basis of notions and concepts.
