Description - Ultimate Intimacy by Mortimer Ostow

With contributions and comments from a range of distinguished Biblical scholars, this work fulfills Mortimer Ostow's promise to unite psychoanalysis and the study of the Kabbalah. Ranging over both general psychoanalytical commentaries on the framework of mysticism and the "apocalyptical complex" and essays on specific incidents in the Bible and the Kabbalah, it opens doors into many fascinating avenues of enquiry. A glossary of the terms used make it accessible to those who have little or no knowledge of Jewish mysticism; they, along with more experienced students of the field, will find Ultimate Intimacy an engrossing and stimulating read.

Author Biography - Mortimer Ostow

Ostow Mortimer was a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who specialised in the study of anti-Semitism and religious and racial fanaticism. He maintained a private practice in Manhattan, and his works include 'Myth and Madness: The Psychodynamics of Anti-Semitism', 'Drugs in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy' and 'The Psychology of Melancholy'. His studies of terrorism, and his theories on the Psychological causes of fanaticism are arguably more relevant than ever in the post-9/11 age.
