Romanyshyn explores the assumptions regarding person, others, body, and world, that are the cornerstones of scientific psychology, and he compellingly dissolves these in terms of the metaphors of our cultural history. In doing so she articulates the irreducibly metaphorical character of psychological life and opens the possibility of a phenomenological depth psychology. This little book is a classic in phenomenological psychology and metabletics. (Roger Brooke Ph.D., [email protected], Pittsburgh, PA)
