Description

This volume contends that the psychological doctrines of the pioneers of depth psychology - Freud, Adler, Jung, Rank, and Sullivan - were forged in both childhood suffering and in later creative illnesses. These creative illnesses are viewed as Kairo-the decisive or pregnant moments. In the aftermath of proclaiming their doctrines to the world, each of the pioneers sought to universalize their thoughts in messianic messages to all humankind. Contents: Preface; Time and Theory; Antecedent Cases of Creative Illness; Creative Illness in the Pioneers of Depth Psychology; From Wounded Healers to the Messianic Message; Epilogue; Index.
