When Nietzsche Wept: A Novel of ObsessionRich Nietzsche received the inspiration to write his famous book Thus Spoke Zarathustra 1994 1381 453 9643126161 1392 20 1385 476 9648497435 1387 1389 9789647522236 1391 1391 1393 9786001192029 1395 1394 423 9786007364147 1392 424 9786001760952 25051399 I am not in the habit of trashing a book However since this novel had been published as a Perennial Classic there is no danger that I might destroy a writer s However the choice of this book as a classic me perplexed why this book is held in such a high regardThe premise of Yalom is held in such a high regardThe premise of Yalom novel is interesting Get two of the most innovative thinkers of modern times to meet And then what Friederich Nietzsche and Josef Breuer the father of modern philosophy and the father of modern psychoanalysis and a friend of the young Freud had never met in life But what if they had I would have expected some new explosive ideology to burst out of this fictional years long relationship Sort of 1 1 3 But this is not the case beyond some personal epiphanies No new discipline emerges Further in exploring each character Yalom regurgitates their respective theories while failing to move into the realm of new intellectual challenge either one of them might have presented to the other Many of the truths the characters cite have by now become so common knowledge that they sound nonsensical On rare occasions the novel brings some forgotten interesting statement mostly from Nietzsche but not enough to spend time with 300 pages of talking heads In the years I was honing my writing skills at writing workshops not a single page of Yalom s dialogues would have passed a writing instructor s scrutiny It would have been dismissed for its amateurishness and the author would have been taught the basics of show *don t tell Yet Yalom ives the reader a book length uninterrupted flow *t tell Yet Yalom A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent gives the reader a book length uninterrupted flow stilted lecturing The dialogue lines lack tension characterization and certainly fail to move the story forward which are the must ingredients forood compelling dialogue Which brings me to the underlining flaw of this work The flimsy plot In the first 100 pages nothing happens from scene to scene because these are really not scenes each with a beginning a middle and an end but rather sections of text They lie flat with little development other than information parted to the reader When things finally move they are slow and predictable A My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA good novel can take the reader into a new world of ideology and intellectual thinking by placing the characters in situations where these theories can be examined under the pressure of events It is called dramatization It reuires vivid imagination on the part of the writer something Yalom clearly lacksIt is astonishing that Yalom s book hasone this far reprinted by Harper Collins in their Perennial Classics series I hope that future writers do not take their cue from this dubious literary success In this amazing novel Yalom blends philosophy psychoanalysis and history and imagines what would have happened had Nietzsche The Book of Leviathan gone into therapy with Breuer The plot thrives on the tensions that arise between Nietzsche s nihilistic philosophy and Freud s belief in the fundamental role of relationships on human life and development This book is an emotional and intellectual tour de force and brings to life two of the most magnificent thinkers of the 20th century Yalom at his best Mind blowing book Mixing up Nietzsche philosophy and psychology by Irvin Yalom is just brilliant Also a prettyood fiction Enjoyed every second of reading this book. En Nietzsche heftige Rededuelle Und je näher sich die beiden kommen umso deutlicher muss Breuer erkennen dass er Nietzsche nur heilen kann wenn er diesem erlaubt auch ihm zu helfenYalom verwebt Fiktion und Wirklichkeit zu einem dichten Netz und bald beginnen die Nine Ghosts großen Köpfe aus den Pioniertagen der Psychotherapie lebendig zu werden und zu uns zu sprech. N Fo Reading this and looking at some of the other titles Yalom has published the suspicionrew that he might like to write a series of adventures about an enigmatic doctor who travels through *Time And Space Solving Complex Mysteries Of * and space solving complex mysteries Of ideally this doctor would need some kind of charming but hapless companion in this case the young Freud whose suggestions nearly lead Dr Breuer into disaster but who eventually turns Las Maravillosas Obras de Dios: Historias B�blicas Para La Familia good thanks to his handy use of a watch to hypnotise theood Doctor into experiencing a parallel life from which he can emerge thinking Maya maya and thus with new understanding accept and embrace his life ahThe title promises tears cruelly the author holds them back to the last page whether his techniue in this regard is eual to that of noted Northumbrian wordsmith Catherine Cookson I don t know nor am I much moved to find outAs I noted in the updates I started this book in the expectation that it would be awful hopefully amusingly so at first say for about a hundred pages I was obliged to channel the spirit of Robin the boy wonder and exclaim every other paragraph or so Holy info dump Batman the interesting thing here was that the information was irrelevant does it matter if Lou Salome crossed her legs or not or what shape Dr Breuer s breakfast roll was or if he ate one or three or if Neitzsche met a Buddhist monk any monk or just read about one in Switzerland or what Yalom believes a typical upper middle class Viennese dinner in 1882 consisted of or who ate whipped cream with their cakeYalom s triangular Kaisersemmel شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى gave me traumatic flashbacks to reading All the light we cannot see and left me thinking if you are justoing to make stuff up you might as well have the inter The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) galactic space dog leave off chasing the Rings of Saturn and come down to cure Nietzsche admittedly since an interalactic space dog is still a dog the cure would consist of urging Nietsche to put on his hover boots and come down the park to chase suirrels but hey why not Woof WoofWell one reason would be is that this is all a bit pedagogical and space dogs enerally are not on hand to assist people studying to become therapists to help *Their Clients View Spoiler *clients view spoiler s the pity though the suirrels are awfully relieved hide spoiler I literally have no words to describe my feelings about this book which is an appalling misuse of the word literally but who cares Maybe it s too soon to say that this book changed my life But it did It really really did Well what else I uess as Mr Bingley once said to Emma If I loved it less I could talk about it Yeah that s it That sums the whole thing up I M WEEPING WHEN NIETZSCHE WEPT IRVIN weeping When Nietzsche wept Irvin YalomWhen Nietzsche Wept is a 1992 novel by Irvin D Yalom The novel starts with Dr Josef Breuer sitting in a cafe in Venice Italy waiting for Lou Salom who was involved with Friedrich Nietzsche She has written a letter stating that the future of the philosophy of Germany is at stake and that the German philosopher needs help desperately The plot develops into a therapy where Breuer needs to have his soul treated ie to help him Arabian Challenge get over a patient who he treated for hysteria and with whom he has fallen in love whereas Nietzsche needs help with his migraines Influenced by the revolutionary ideas of his young disciple Sigmund Freud Josef Breuer starts the dangerous strategy that will mean the origin of the psychoanalysis Thanks to their unusual relation both of them will see how their perspective of life changes completely The story also explains how Fried. Salomé Breuerebeten hat ihn zu behandeln Breuer will ihn der neuartigen Redekur unterziehen die er erade mit seiner Patientin Anna O entwickelt hat Um Nietzsche zum Reden zu bewegen beginnt er von seiner Obsession für die junge Patientin Bertha zu erzählen So entspinnen sich zwischen dem ruhigen einfühlsamen Breuer und dem verschlossenen verletzlich.

field of byzantine 
of Byzantine Beach reading for the brainy set Keeping in mind that this is one of Yalom s teaching novels envisioned not to entertain or even to achieve artistically but to serve as a type of literary experiential learning tool for therapists and therapists to be really helps with tolerating the expository nature of much of the book Also Yalom s nerdy and passionate enthusiasm is infectious and if one surrenders to it it allows the reader to join in with the fun he clearly was having writing this imagined relationship strengthening the ideological connection he swears by between psychotherapy and existentialism Thanks to this book I have rown to love respect and have a tender spot in my heart for Nietzsche Based on the infamous uote God is Dead I always took him to be an arrogant man who didn t know what he was talking about A book like this helps me take Nietzsche in his own context It is so easy to read fun intellectually stimulating and I keep feeling that I am Der Verlorene Koffer: A Graded Reader for Beginning Students getting and educated Nietzsche had such aentle soul but in his books he sounded shrill often combative How is that Well it s no ILLERAMMA Kathalu great mystery If no one will listen it s only natural to shout p195 He wrote for us for you and me as his philosophy was about life and for life This reminds me of why Sartre also wrote books of philosophy when he never intended to philosophize per se he only was writing about as weenerally live itFrom chapter 15 onwards Nietzsche is an outstanding psychotherapist who knows the ins and outs of human soul and helps Dr Breuer with his despair They swap roles and the doctor here is the patient Nietzsche s writing succeeds not because he is intelligent or scholarly but because he has the daring to detach himself from the comfort of the herd and face strong and evil inclinations and what doesn t kill him will make him stronger as usual The most important lesson that I am learning from this book what is sticking in my brain and I would love to keep remembering it is what Nietzsche is advising Dr Breur to doBe a man and do not follow me but yourself But yourself Here he is warning against subordination to people and that we should copycat nobody To each is their own path Follow your own calling Call no man a father My way might be perfect for me but it is not necessarily perfect for you as well The best I can do is to help you find your own way but never to encourage you to blindly find my way Become yourself Stick to who you are Wow Simply fantastic If you spend half as much time in your own head as I do mine this might be the book for you If you analyze yourself and your actions enjoy the process of self discovery or simply love psychology then I suggest you hit your nearest used book shop ASAP This book makes no effort to hide its loftier aspects I was not in the least surprised to learn that its author is a professor of psychology at Stanford and has written several text books on the subject Yalom however approaches his American Literature Student Text grandiose subject matter with such candor that each character seems to be himself written from a different angle as though their struggles were once his own All inuiries of the self aside this book is also a cool piece of historical fictio. Das Wien des Fin de siècle Die junge Russin Lou Salomé sucht Josef Breuer auf den angesehenen Arzt und Mentor Sigmund Freuds Sie macht sich Sorgen um ihren Freund Friedrich Nietzsche Breuer soll den unter betäubenden Kopfschmerzen leidenden einsamenroßen Denker kurieren und von seiner Obsession für sie heilen Doch Nietzsche darf nicht erfahren dass. ,
