How is it that someone can be healed of mental illness through
talking with another person? This is what Neville Symington
examines in this book. He believes that a person in their innermost
being registers the essential character of the other person. The
senses detect the outer contours of the personality but a deeper
form of knowledge connects directly to the other person's inner
being. Healing comes about if the inner world of the one is guided
by principles that transcend the particular and this fosters a
giving-ness in the one and the other. The egoism in each is then
subsumed into a higher unity which results in a new subjective
understanding. Personal understanding is a sign that a new ordering
of the inner ingredients of the personality has taken place; that
the form of being in the one has the capacity to generate in the
other this new way of being.The author explores this fundamental
reality that underlies human communication and teases out how this
brings about healing. He believes that this has existed wherever
there has been true friendship within civilization, and that
psychotherapy and psychoanalysis attempts to distil this essence
and apply it in a clinical setting.
