Person to person: the problem of being human


The authors are perceptive and their generalities are relevant to. subjective experiences and behavior of individuals The book is very readable and of particular interest to those who are concerned with the difference between the psychotherapies of psychotics and neurotics." —Psychiatric Quarterly "For those who would like data or science, this book will be disappointing; for those who prefer humanism this book will be exciting." —

Choice "These papers are sufficiently interesting in themselves, but Barry Stevens' perceptive and sensitive reactions to each author make the book an even more exciting encounter. We are encouraged to let others be 'themselves/ to see more readily what we are ourselves, to drop our fears of what others think, and learn to be free.


Other therapies tend to make man predictable but, as is pointed out in the book, 'the goals of humanistic psychotherapy are neither predictability nor control. In fact, the more successful psychotherapy is, the less predictable the individual becomes....' Stevens chooses creativity as a fundamental value in considering the nature of man." —Canada's Mental Health

This is an unusual book, put together by a unique person, and built around some papers which present an all too uncommon point of view. Let me explain. In the first place each paper — some of my own, others by Drs. Gendlin, Shlien, and Van Dusen — is set in a context of warm human reaction to the paper. Barry Stevens regards each of these papers as a sort of oasis in the current professional literature and has lovingly placed each of them in a setting composed of her own very personal associations to the theme of the writer. Her comments are not comments on the paper. They are not a review of the paper. They are the highly personal feelings and thoughts which the paper triggered off in her. It is as though a friend told you of many responses set off in himself by something he had read. So you are stimulated to read the material yourself to see what you can get out of it. This seems like a natural approach, but it is certainly not a conventional one. It is simply not the way books are written or compiled.
