A literary gem – a portrait from life of Franz Kafka – now with an ardent preface by Francine Prose, avowed “fan of Janouch’s odd and beautiful book.” Gustav Janouch met Franz Kafka, the celebrated author of The Metamorphosis, as a seventeen-year-old fledgling poet. As Francine Prose notes in her wonderful preface, “they fell into the habit of taking long strolls through the city, strolls on which Kafka seems to have said many amazing, incisive, literary, and per- things to his companion and interlocutor, the teenage Boswell of Prague. Crossing a windswept square, apropos of something or other, Kafka tells Janouch, ‘Life is infinitely great and profound as the immensity of the stars above us. One can only look at it through the narrow keyhole of one’s personal experience. But through it one perceives more than one can see. So above all one must keep the keyhole clean.’” They talk about writing (Kafka’s own, but also that of his favorite writers: Poe, Kleist, and Rimbaud, who “transforms vowels into colors”) as well as technology, film, crime, Darwinism, Chinese philosophy, carpentry, insomnia, street fights, Hindu scripture, art, suicide, and prayer. “Prayer,” Kafka notes, brings “its infinite radiance to bed in the frail little cradle of one’s own existence.”

"Towards the end of the nineteenth century, there appeared in Central Europe a generation of Jewish intellectuals whose work was to mark modern culture. Drawing at once on the traditions of German Romanticism and Jewish Messianism, their thought was organized around the kabbalistic idea of Tikkoun: redemption. Redemption and Utopia uses the concept of "elective affinity" to explain the surprising community of spirit that existed between redemptive messianic religious thought and the wide variety of radical secular utopian beliefs held by this important group of intellectuals. The author outlines the circumstances that produced this unusual combination of religious and non-religious thought and illuminates the common assumptions that united such seemingly disparate figures as Martin Buber, Kafka, Walter Benjamin and Georg Lukacs."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Ethics and Lao-Tzu is an intricate story of psychotherapy. Dr. Mendelowtiz draws on great literary, psychological, and philosophical works in describing the journey of existential therapy. The book follows the story of Kristina, a client of Dr. Mendelowitz with multiple personalities (i.e., Dissociative Identity Disorder). Kristina's story is told, in part, through her artwork, which illustrates her journey through visually stunning pieces of art, each imbued richly with symbolism and meaning. Along the way, Mendelowitz creates a collage between the artwork, stories and letters from their therapy, illustrative quotes from classic works, and Mendeolowitz's own poetic thoughts. Throughout the book, Mendelowitz invites the reader to come along exploring the depths of the human soul. Kirk Schneider refers to Mendelowitz as "the poet laureate of existential psychology." In Ethics and Lao-Tzu, Mendelowitz illustrates why this high praise from the leading existential psychologist in the United States is so fitting.
