Samenvatting

This book focuses on the intrapsychic vicissitudes of what it means to be truly alive and how death accompanies us at each step of our life's journey. It shows that, psychologically-speaking, death is always present in life and life in death.

Recensie(s)

'Yes indeed, joy and delight precede wisdom in reading poetry or in Salman Akhtar's new book. His life-affirming attitude helps psychoanalysts manage their patients' fears of living, loving, and even dying well. Death has an upside, when viewed as an inseparable companion to life. It is delightful to see Akhtar use Urdu poetry, his Eastern background, erudition, and wisdom to enrich contemporary psychoanalysis.'- Stanley Coen, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; Training and Supervising Analyst and Senior Associate Director for Academic Affairs, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research'With his remarkable blend of psychoanalytic scholarship, poetry, humor, bicultural experience and wisdom, and with plain common sense, Salman Akhtar looks at certain basic aspects of human experience that have for too long been only minimally and insufficiently addressed in our literature. These include matters of human goodness, happiness, playfulness. Then from these life generative, sunny topics he considers, most thoughtfully, the question of dying, the significance to us of graves, and the long shadow of the childhood trauma of losing one's mother. His Matters of Life and Death is tightly packed, highly nuanced, a book of strong theoretical and much clinical significance.'- Henri Parens, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Thomas Jefferson University; Training & Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia
