    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBIA writer and a psychologist exchange e mails The writer seems to have a bee in his bonnet about the way the world works particularly in the arenas of repression regression and group dynamics The psychologist does her very best to respond to his arguments constantly clarifying that she can speak only from her experience as a psychologist The writer appears to feel his only limitation lies in the number of books he has yet to read on the subject of psychoanalysis Which is amusing and annoying all at the same time

    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBII'm constantly fascinated by how story and narrative play out in how we live and construct our lives and this issue becomes fascinating when you insert fiction into the mix Coetzee brings his experience as a fiction writer and a teacher to the conversation to contrast with Kurtz's clinical perspective and the deep topics of truth vs fiction are exploredDostoyevsky Dickens Hardy along with Coetzee's veiled suggestion that Hester Prynne's scarlet letter was describing all of the Puritans as Assholes and one author I didn't know WG Sebald are all discussed with a flurry of new insights I also enjoyed Coetzee's speculation that psychotherapy was secularism's answer to the confessional The book is also about living the good life or making a good story out of your life The one place the book headed that was totally unexpected was group dynamics Almost half of the book was on how stories both fictional and psychotherapeutic play out in groups In hi

    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBII’ve mentioned before that I think novelists and psychotherapists are in a similar business yet the fictional therapists we encounter on the page sometimes fail to convince So what better way for the writer bent on creating a credible fictional therapist than to eavesdrop on a conversation between a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and a clinical psychologist lecturer and psychoanalytic psychotherapist? As JM Coetzee and Arabella Kurtz toss ideas back and forth about the intersection between truth story and morality the writer is afforded a remarkable insight into the workings of the therapist’s mindFull review

    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBIMore Coetzee Good for the soulThis book is the written record of a dialogue between Coetzee and a psychotherapist Arabella Kurtz The subject matter is interesting if somewhat unfocused The character and progression of their dialogue the way they talk to and around each other was to my mind the real hero of this book I found their interaction highly stimulating and it made me wonder why books like this don't exist We have the institution of the public discussion on a stage with an audience but having the dialogue take place on paper seems to my mind a better way of going about things You can take time you can review what was said you can express yourself in the best way that reflects wh

Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBIReading this felt like reading the transcript for a very long very intellectual podcast If that appeals to you then great Because there is a lot of interesting ideas discussed here However those ideas are not as interconnected as I would have liked since this entire book really is just one long conversation between two monologuing intellectuals 0 and for a book I felt like this lacked the cohesive tissue needed to tie Coetzee and Kurtz's admittedly compelling arguments and rationalizations together Instead it comes across like two deeply intelligent thinkers talking past each other from the perspective of their respective fields This leads to some fascinating content t

    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBICoetzee and psychotherapist Arabella Kurtz discuss memory repression and narrative in the context of both fiction and psychotherapy The scope ranges from the individual level to societal I especially liked the section where they discuss South Africa and Australia's colonial violence and how those memories are processed and repressed in the present Interestingly Kurtz seems comfortable with the slipperiness of real truth than Coetzee the fiction writer The book ends with Coetzee positing that in both fiction and psychotherapy truth must be revealed for things to work out as they should Why are there no stories about people who happily deceive themselves forever? This uestion is asked in several ways but not definitively answered

    PDF/EPUB J.M. Coetzee ½ ½ The Good Story PDF Ø The Good Kindle - good kindle, story epub, The Good epub, The Good Story MOBIThe book doesn't always hold the reader's attention but the whole exchange between Kurtz and Coetzee is marked by moments of startling insight and humanity Coetzee's comments reveal his keen though obviously expected investment in what it means to tell stories in novels as well as in 'real' life Kurtz's responses strikingly original and fearless not only refect a sharp intellect at work but also an individual who speaks with great elouence and wisdom about the discipline that she studies and practices
