Il senso della vita (Italian Edition) by Irvin D. Yalom,Serena Prina

By Irvin D. Yalom,Serena Prina

«Ascoltate i vostri pazienti; lasciate che siano loro a insegnare a voi. consistent with diventare saggi dovete rimanere studenti». Queste parole di John Whitehorn, suo mentore negli anni giovanili trascorsi al Johns Hopkins health facility di Baltimora, sono risuonate a lungo nella mente di Irvin D. Yalom. Ne ha, però, pienamente afferrato los angeles verità soltanto quando, nel corso degli anni, si è imbattuto in alcuni casi clinici che si sono mostrati più rivelatori according to lui – l’analista, il medico – che in step with il paziente in cura. Le sei storie contenute in questo quantity narrano di questa scoperta. Toccano momenti cruciali dell’esistenza, come nel caso di Paula, una malata terminale che svela a Yalom come los angeles paura sia soltanto uno dei tanti colori che illuminano il nostro lungo addio alla vita. Concernono i nodi fondamentali dello sviluppo e della formazione della personalità, come nel caso di Magnolia, una settantenne afroamericana che, confessando le proprie delusioni e il proprio passato di figlia abbandonata, offre all’autore l’occasione in keeping with riflettere sulla relazione con los angeles propria madre; o come nel caso di Myrna, in cui il confronto con i rispettivi lutti genitoriali giunge, consistent with paziente e medico, attraverso una vicendevole attrazione erotica. Riguardano i disturbi della sfera emotiva, come nella vicenda di Irene, un chirurgo intelligente e di successo, che si scopre incapace di superare los angeles morte del marito utilizzando le sole armi del suo raziocinio.
Selezionando sei storie tra le tante affiorate nei suoi cinquant’anni di pratica analitica, Yalom conduce il lettore lungo i sentieri delle emozioni umane, così come si rivelano nell’affascinante e complessa relazione tra paziente e psichiatra. E, attraverso una scrittura capace di affrontare con levità i temi del lutto, del dolore e della perdita, ma anche quelli del coraggio, della guarigione e dell’autoconsapevolezza, tesse, come Oliver Sacks, i labirintici fili della coscienza in un arazzo molto più ricco e solenne.

«Non sono molti gli scrittori capaci di scegliere in step with titolo Il senso della vita e riuscire davvero a mantenere quello che il titolo promette».
The Independent

«Mentre guida i pazienti a scoprire le radici più vere e profonde dei disturbi […] Yalom trascina il lettore in un processo di coinvolgimento psicologico e di domande su se stesso».
la Repubblica
