L’évangile selon Youri

« Les migrants, vois-tu, venus d’un monde oublié, fondateurs d’un monde à venir, vivent dans le temps du mythe. Le récit de leur vie a la puissance des légendes antiques. »

Doctors & Healers

Doctors&HealersWe think we know what healers do: they build on patients’ irrational beliefs and treat them in a ‘symbolic’ way. If they get results, it’s thanks to their capacity to listen, rather than any influence on a clinical level. At the same time, we also think we know what modern medicine is: a highly technical and rational process, but one that scarcely listens to patients at all.

In this book, ethnopsychiatrist Tobie Nathan and philosopher Isabelle Stengers argue that this commonly posed opposition between traditional and modern medicine is misleading. They show instead that healers are interesting precisely because they don’t listen to patients, using techniques of ‘divination’ rather than ‘diagnosis’. Healers construct genuine therapeutic strategies by identifying the origins of symptoms in external forces, outside of the mind of the sufferer. Modern medicine, for its part, is characterized by empiricism rather than rationality. What appears to be the pursuit of rationality is ultimately only a means to dismiss and exclude other forms of treatment.

Blurring the distinctions between traditional and modern practices and drawing on perspectives from across the globe, this ethnopsychiatric manifesto encourages us to think in radically new ways about illness, challenging accepted notions on the relationship between sufferer and symptom.

« Les secrets de vos rêves » traduit en roumain

Secrets_Rêves_roumain_couv » Sa visezi este o sansa, un dar oferit de natura, iar sa ne amintim ce am visat este o binecuvantare!

Ma obisnuisem sa consider visul ca pe un ghid si sa le spun multor oameni ce sa faca si cum sa primeasca mesajele venite din intunericul noptii. Astfel de vise constituie baza acestei carti. Aici veti gasi descrierea lor exacta, dar si fragmente de viata care antreneaza intotdeauna asemenea vise. Veti afla cum ne intoarcem, intotdeauna cu ajutorul celui care viseaza, de la poveste la ganduri si de la acele ganduri la sfaturi practice, permitand astfel visului sa se implineasca in viata.

Aceasta carte nu este un dictionar de simboluri si nici nu incearca sa demonstreze semnificatiile vreunui vis „tipic”, ci, mai degraba, reprezinta o invitatie de a fi atenti la detalii pentru a ne da seama ce transmite fiecare vis. Cu ajutorul acestei lucrari, cititorii vor reusi sa se simta mai familiarizati cu acest domeniu al interpretarii viselor, sa fie mai curiosi in ceea ce priveste semnificatia acestora si mai deschisi fata de multitudinea de posibilitati pe care ni le propune viata.

TOBIE NATHAN este profesor de psihologie clinica si psihopatologie la Universitatea Paris VIII, una dintre figurile reprezentative ale etnopsihiatriei in Franta. A publicat mai multe lucrari, care s-au bucurat de un foarte mare succes, printre care amintim L’influence qui guerit, Psychanalyse paienne, Psychotherapies si Philtre d’amour. »
