We must stand firm in defense of free speech. It is one thing to not sell or read or ally ourselves with what we see as destructive imagery or language, it is another to say nothing when there is a fundamental attack on free speech. Book Culture is in the publishing business and as such we are obligated, without equivocation, to support that right.
On Sunday, December 7th, at 3pm, Michael Eigen, renowned psychoanalyst, poet, and teacher, will discuss his latest book, Faith. Eigen is the author of of a number of books, including Toxic Nourishment, The Psychoanalytic Mystic, Feeling Mattersand Flames from the Unconscious.
Eigen’s new book explores psychoanalytic faith and, more generally, the role of faith in the therapeutic process. In his earlier work, Eigen distinguished faith from beliefs used to organize it, the latter at once bringing people together and creating violent oppositions – belief as a defense against faith. In this new work, Eigen dives into faith experience itself and shares what he finds.
