About the Author

Elliot D. Cohen, Ph.D., is executive co-director and co-founder of the American Society for Philosophy, Counseling, and Psychotherapy; professor and chair at the Indian River College; editor-in-chief and founder of The International Journal of Applied Philosophy and The International Journal of Philosophical Practice. Author of twelve books and numerous articles, his most recent book on philosophical counseling is What Would Aristotle Do? Self-Control through the Power of Reason. Other recent books include Philosophers at Work: Issues and Practice of Philosophy; The Virtuous Therapist: Ethical Practice of Counseling & Psychotherapy; and News Incorporated: Corporate Media Ownership and its Threat to Democracy.


The New Rational Therapy is an intelligent and clearly written book. It is enjoyable to read, and it gently induces the reader to self-knowledge and self-improvement. The light of reason that shines through this new therapy can indeed be the right medication for persons suffering from mental and emotional disorders. Professional care givers can find new inspiration in the "Eternal Logos" reshaped as a Logic-Based talking cure (LBT) and use its wisdom in their own working settings. The New Rational Therapy presents the ripened fruition of Dr. Elliot Cohen's many years of research and clinical practice; it will be the remaining crown of excellence and distinction on his labor. -- Shlomit C. Schuster Ph.D., author of Philosophy Practice: An Alternative to Counseling and Psychotherapy
In his New Rational Therapy, Elliot Cohen identifies eleven common and destructive patterns of reasoning that, left unchecked, can substantially impair personal happiness. He provides many useful antidotes to counteract the poisonous effects of these cardinal fallacies. -- Samuel Zinaich, Jr., president, American Society for Philosophy, Counseling, and Psychotherapy
An amazingly profound book. -- Albert Ellis PhD, Albert Ellis Institute for Rational Emotive Therapy, New York City
Cohen does a masterful job of melding concepts of positive psychology into his own theories of rational therapy. -- Sara Dettinger Martino * PsycCRITIQUES *
This is a genuinely useful book that deserves a wide readership. It could help a lot of people become a great deal happier. -- Kevin M. Purday * Metapsychology Online *
Clearly written and well argued, Cohen sets out eleven philosophical prescriptions that really can improve our everyday lives. If more philosophers followed Cohen's lead in their work, there will be many more (employed) philosophers and even more satisfied students of philosophy. -- James P. Sterba, professor, University of Notre Dame
