About the Author

Keith Haartman is a Ph.D. graduate of the Centre for Religious Studies at the University of Toronto, and a training candidate at the Toronto Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis. He practises psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy in Toronto, and teaches part-time at the University of Toronto, in the Department of Religious Studies and in the Professional Writing and Communications Program.


"Watching displays a thorough grasp of the classical and contemporary psychoanalytic literature. It is replete with helpful insights concerning the Methodist tradition. It is cogently argued. It is a worthy contribution to the psycho-religious discussion and will foster much fruitful discussion." in: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Fall 2005 "[Haartman's] book provides us with a substantial and probing exploration of the psychology, development, and religious career and teaching of the great John Wesley, the father of Methodism. The interpretation is set in the context of a psychoanalytic perspective that gives us a unique and meaningful picture of the man Wesley and the spiritual ideals that guided his life and work. ... The whole adds up to a substantial and important contribution to the understanding of religious thought from a psychoanalytic vantage point. Students of this area of psychoanalytic reflection will welcome this feast of relevant and interesting material, and those who seek more generally for a deeper understanding of religious meaning in life will have much to ponder in the reading of it" - William W. Meissner, S.J., M.D., University Professor of Psychoanalysis, Boston College, Supervising and Training Analyst Emeritus, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute "Watching and Praying is a remarkable work, remarkable in its depth and insights, remarkable in regard to its juxtaposition of psychoanalysis and religion ... The author diligently compares the tenets of each field of interest and capably demonstrates how they overlap and differ. ... One begins to realize, after reading this book, how close religion is to psychoanalysis in its aims and methods. ... fascinating and meaningful ...I recommend it for all mental health workers as well as pastoral counselors and those interested in religious topics" - James S. Grotstein M.D., UCLA
