The Examined Life : How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz

ISBN: 9780099549031

12.90

“A heart-warming collection of simply written real life stories of people just like us. Compiled by Grosz during his 35-year-long career, it offers insights into the patients’ minds as well as the psychiatrist’s. A fascinating discovery!” Marta

This book is about learning to live. Echoing Socrates’ statement that the unexamined life not worth living, psychoanalyst Stephen Grosz draws on his twenty-five years of work and more than 50,000 hours of conversations to form a collection of beautifully rendered tales that illuminate the human experience. These are stories about everyday lives: from a woman who finds herself daydreaming as she returns home from a business trip to a young man loses his wallet, to the more extreme examples: the patient who points an unloaded gun at a police officer and the compulsive liar who convinces his wife he’s dying of cancer. The resulting journey will spark new ideas about who we are and why we do what we do.
