In Depression and the Soul, John Peteet proves the old adage that
the best physician is also a philosopher. He considers how to
approach the problem of depression within a larger context, and
reviews current concepts of successful living relative to the heart
(emotion and volition), the mind (cognition and coping), and the
soul (the self in relation to transcendent reality). Each chapter
goes on to further explore the relationship between depression and
the context of a patient's entire life. This is done through
consideration of how the existential struggles of depressed
individuals engage their spiritual lives, by reviewing current
empirical literature on depression and spirituality, comparing the
perspectives of various spiritual traditions or world views, and
summarizing ways that spirituality and depression interact.
