by Christopher Bollas


It is astonishing not only how much the author knows about the Chinese mind but how he really shows a new perspective on the differences between China's mind and the Western mind!" - Li Yawen, Psychiatrist, Beijing Anding Hospital, China. Christopher Bollas is a psychoanalyst and novelist.

Tracing their differences, Christopher Bollas examines how these mentalities are now converging once again, notably in the practice of psychoanalysis. Creating a freely associated comparison between western psychoanalysts and eastern philosophers, Bollas demonstrates how the Eastern use of poetry evolved as a collective way to house the individual self. On the other, Bollas examines how Jung, Bion and Rosenfeld, assimilate the Confucian ethic that sees the individual and group mind as a collective, while Freudian psychoanalysis he argues has provided an unconscious meeting place of both viewpoints.

Several thousand years ago Indo-European culture diverged into two ways of thinking; one went West, the other East

Several thousand years ago Indo-European culture diverged into two ways of thinking; one went West, the other East.

by Christopher Bollas, Routledge, New York, 2013, 158pp. Psychoanalysis has, since its inception, been a field of clinical and theoretical endeavor noteworthy for controversy and disagreement among its followers, who, while officially following Freud by verbal and written pledge, have had no compunction about revising his ideas and theories to the point where they are unrecognizable.

Several thousand years ago Indo-European culture diverged into two ways of thinking; one went West, the other East. Tracing their differences, Christopher Bollas examines how these mentalities are now converging once again, notably in the practice of psychoanalysis.

Creating a freely associated comparison between western psychoanalysts and eastern philosophers, Bollas demonstrates how the Eastern use of poetry evolved as a collective way to house the individual self. On one hand he links this tradition to the psychoanalytic praxes of Winnicott and Khan, which he relates to Daoism in their privileging of solitude and non verbal forms of communicating. On the other, Bollas examines how Jung, Bion and Rosenfeld, assimilate the Confucian ethic that sees the individual and group mind as a collective, while Freudian psychoanalysis he argues has provided an unconscious meeting place of both viewpoints.

Bollas’s intriguing book will be of interest to psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, Orientalists, and those concerned with cultural studies.

Reading Bollas's view on Eastern civilization enhances all minds and widens our close western perception of life and things. I deeply recommend this book as I do with all of this author's book. Bollas is a prime psychoanalytical thinker with a broad range of interests.
