Buddhist and Existential Psychoanalysis

Buddhist and Existential Psychoanalysis

Buddhist and Existentialist Psychoanalysis:

This course will compare and contrast Buddhist and Existentialist approaches to understanding the human psyche and the most fundamental drives behind human behavior. Our work together can provide insights into how Buddhist and Existentialist philosophies find meaning in human life, the nature of our responsibilities to ourselves and others, and the meaning of death. We will also discuss how these philosophies lead to differing approaches to psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
