Therapy and the Challenge of Evil.
Spinelli, Ernesto
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v28 n4 p561-67 Nov 2000
Expresses the author's personal view of evil as considered by psychotherapeutic theories. Challenges the psychotherapeutic tendency to avoid the moral and existential dimensions of evil via the transformative language of psychopathology that allows practitioners to rely upon metaphors of disease or immaturity. Presents an inter-psychic viewpoint derived, in part, from the writings of Martin Heidegger. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/GCP)
