內容簡介

  當代精神醫學權威歐文‧亞隆,在他的執業生涯中,總是在探索他人的人生,但在這部深刻的自傳裡,他將寫作及治療的視角轉向自己。

  亞隆回憶自己的成長過程,自言曾是平靜生活的搗亂者,一旦有事發生,他的叛逆總是變成家族鄰里間首先指責的對象。亞隆在本書中透過流暢的、與讀者對話般的文體,寫下了他的童年、他的猶太身分、他的工作、和妻子之間的相處等等。在本書中,我們看見一個有見地的思考者的誕生,他的著作,無論是專業教科書或心理小說如《當尼采哭泣》、《愛情劊子手》等,都為許多人提供了指引。

  如今已86歲的亞隆,是一名狂熱的單車騎士和撲克牌愛好者,每日仍然規律地寫作和看診。亞隆坦言病患對自身經歷的自述和回憶,時常觸動他、使他重新審視自己的人生,看診的過程同時也反映了他自己是如何看待他現在的生活,以及如何回憶他的過去,這樣的想法也構築、強化了這本豐富的回憶錄。這不單單只是一個男人的人生故事,亞隆對他的人生的反思,是使我們也重新思考自身的歷史及生命意義的一場邀請。(文/博客來編譯)

  'Wonderful, compelling and as insightful about its subject and about the times he lived in as you could hope for. A fabulous read' --Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone

  Irvin D. Yalom has made a career of investigating the lives of others. In Becoming Myself, his long-awaited memoir, he turns his therapeutic eye on himself, delving into the relationships that shaped him and the groundbreaking work that made him famous.

  The first-generation child of immigrant Russian Jews, Yalom grew up in a lower-class neighbourhood in Washington DC. Determined to escape its confines, he set his sights on becoming a doctor. An incredible ascent followed: we witness his start at Stanford Medical School amid the cultural upheavals of the 1960s, his turn to writing fiction as a means of furthering his exploration of the human psyche and his rise to international prominence.

  Yalom recounts his revolutionary work in group psychotherapy and how he became the foremost practitioner of existential psychotherapy, a method that draws on the wisdom of great thinkers over the ages. He reveals the inspiration for his many seminal books, including Love's Executioner and When Nietzche Wept, which meld psychology and philosophy to arrive at arresting new insights into the human condition. Interweaving the stories of his most memorable patients with personal tales of love and regret, Becoming Myself brings readers close to Yalom's therapeutic technique, his writing process and his family life.

  Review

  Wonderful, compelling and as insightful about its subject and about the times he lived in as you could hope for. A fabulous read (Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone)

  Irvin D. Yalom is the psychiatrist who thinks like a philosopher and writes like the fine novelist he also happens to be. Becoming Myself delivers not only the engrossing story of one exceptional individual's life, it shines with revelations regarding life as it ought to be lived (Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, author of Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away)

  This is a book to read and reread for years to come, a memorable journey through Yalom's time and ours (Jay Parini, author of The Last Station and New and Collected Poems: 1975-2015)

  A candid, insightful memoir by one of the world's most important and accomplished experts on the human soul (Daniel Menaker, author of The Treatment and My Mistake: A Memoir)

  Author

  Dr Irvin Yalom is Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford University. He has won two major awards from the American Psychiatric Association. He continues to run his clinical practice and lectures widely.
