Beschreibungen

This book explores the deep, imaginative, and creative power of poetry as part of the human experience.  How poetry provides insight into human psychology is a question at the beginning of its theoretical development, and is a constant challenge for cultural psychologists and the humanities alike. Poetry functions, in all ages and cultures, as a rite that merges the beauty, truth and the unbearable conditions of existence.  Both the general and the particular can be found in its expression.  Collectively the authors aim to evoke a holistic understanding of what poetry conveys about decision making and the human search for meaning. This ground-breaking collection will be indispensable to scholars of clinical and theoretical psychology, philosophy, anthropology, literature, aesthetics and sociology.

“This book is an extraordinary achievement: Written and edited by scholars from every corner of the world who stage a meeting of poetry and the human mind. Poetry is depicted as much more than lyrical words in books, for there is a poetic of our lives that is absolutely fundamental, but which the sciences of the mind have ignored all too often. With this excellent collection it is time to put poetics at the center stage of our understanding of psychology and related disciplines.” (Professor Svend Brinkman, Knowledge Group Manager, Department of Communication & Psychology, Aalborg University, Denmark) “This exciting volume takes readers on a fascinating cross-disciplinary journey across multiple fields, including psychological science, literary studies, and cultural studies. I highly recommend this journey!” (Fathali M. Moghaddam, Professor and Director of the Interdisciplinary Program in Cognitive Science, Georgetown University, USA)
