Spirit of Sanity by Neville Symington
Book DescriptionA rare and unusual consideration of the spiritual dimensions of sanity from a psychoanalytic perspective, this transcription of a series of seven lectures delivered at the Tavistock Clinic capture the spontaneity and immediacy of the interplay between one of the world's most eminent psychoanalysts and an audience of his peers. The author of the established psychoanalytic classics Emotion and Spirit, Narcissism: A New Theory; and The Analytic Experience here brings his characteristic insight and innovation to the question of how the traditional Freudian view of religious belief as neurotic or illusory can be reconciled with a way of taking up psychoanalytic work without abandoning the spiritual dimension to life.

Psychology of the Person, Paperback (May 2012)
The definition of 'person' implies that no two people, even identical twins, are the same. What is a person? How is a person different from someone who is not a person? This book set out to answer these questions. It intends to sketch out a 'psychology of the person'.
In-Gratitude and Other Poems, Paperback (November 2009)View all books by Neville Symington
Where does the creative act come from? No one knows. All the rash of literature in recent times from artists, scientists and theologians on the subject of consciousness finds its origin in this puzzle. This title includes the long poem "IN-GRATITUDE", which is based on the conversations the author had with his mother shortly before she died.
