Daseinsanalysis--probably the most widely-discussed method of existential psychotherapy today--has had a formidable impact on European thought. And it is this seminal work--now completely revised and expanded for its first piblication in the English language--that has been a basic text of the movement. Drawing on Martin Heidegger's basic philosophical tenets, one of the pioneering existential analysts here offers a fundamental new approach to understanding the nature of man's existence, the nature of his world, and the nature of the relationship between them, to establish entirely new underpinnings for psychoanalytic theory.

Citing numerous illustrative case studies, he demonstrates the therapeutic applications of Daseinsanalytic insights and techniques, suggests a new conception of the nature of guilt and the human conscience, and clarifies the basic assumptions implicit in current psychoanalytic therapy.(Publisher).
