Publisher's Summary

A master of psychoanalysis and social philosophy explores Zen Buddhism. In 1957, social philosopher and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm invited Daisetz T. Suzuki, the most famous Zen Buddhist master in the Western world, to a seminar at his new home in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Their discussion was one of the highlights of Fromm’s life, and the paper Fromm presented (and later expanded into a book) was a watershed work. Fromm demonstrates his mastery of the philosophy and practice of Zen, perfectly articulating how Zen tenets fit into the ideas of psychoanalysis. In this audiobook, he creates new perspectives on both systems of thought.

    "Great book!"
    If you could sum up Psychoanalysis and Zen Buddhism in three words, what would they be?

    I really enjoyed this audio book. Usually the zen books have lots of mispronunciations, so I thought the reader did an excellent job with a very difficult text. Her tone seemed somehow perfect. Spot on choice! I look forward to listening to this again and again. Bravo!

    "A for effort D for results"

    Although I consider Erich Fromm a brilliant thinker, unfortunately it is not possible to understand Buddhism just by readings books. In the same way that reading about brain surgery does not give you the tools to teach how to do it or even try to do it, reading about Buddhism does not give you the tools to understand it. It is a process that takes years of study and practice (and one without the other would be a futile effort). However, for buddhist it is interesting to learn the common misunderstood concepts.
