Contemporary Solitude: The Joy and Pain of Being Alone
Joanne Wieland-Burston (au)
Solitude is a major issue in our time, as pronounced individualism, rather than life in a community, has become the predominant theme for self-development. Here, the author has illustrated the many paradoxes involved with solitude, with classic stories & fairy tales & a look at the tradition of the religious retreat & “back-to-nature” movements. Through the examples of Buddha, St. Anthony, & Jesus, she reveals the common temptations in the choices for solitude: fantasies of our own grandiosity, & separation from humanity. Describes the role of psychotherapy as a search to discover the kind of space in which we can develop as individuals & yet not become closed off from the world. Includes case examples. Illustrations.
