Reviews

Considering the place of East Asia from both sides of the couch, this long-overdue collection provincializes psychoanalysis from the perspectives of China, Japan, and Korea. Psychoanalytic inquiry can no longer afford to ignore some of the richest East Asian cultural traditions and theories of human relations-such as Buddhism, Confucianism, filial piety, and collective dependence-and those who embody them, 'over there' as well as 'over here.' -- David L. Eng, PhD, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Pennsylvania
Freud and the Far East: Psychoanalytic Perspectives on the People and Culture of China, Japan and Korea is enlightening, insightful, and relevant for a wide range of readers, and it has the potential to deeply change our stereotypes about clinical practices-not only in the Far East but across other diverse cultures around the world....Akhtar and his colleagues have greatly enhanced the richness of psychoanalytical theory and practice by linking psychoanalysis with its Easter influences....I strongly recommend including this book on the reading lists of clinical and abnormal psychology courses because of its strong focus on cultural diversity... -- Shereen Abdel Kader * American Psychological Association, May 12, 2010 *
Salman Akhtar has edited a marvelous and thought-provoking exploration of psychoanalysis in the cultural context of China, Japan, and Korea. Unlike any other book, Freud and the Far East shows us the similarities and differences in psychoanalytic theory and clinical work between these three Asian countries. Building upon earlier edited books on psychoanalysis and India and Islam, Akhtar succeeds in illuminating not only how psychoanalysis historically evolved in a non-Western region, but also how some of the fascinating and creative ideas that emerged in the process enriched the psychoanalytic tradition. -- Francis Lu, MD, Luke and Grace Kim Professor of Cultural Psychiatry, University of California at Davis
