Reviews and Endorsements

'Lambert, like Jung, emphasizes the importance of the person of the analyst for the course of his own analysis, which includes the analyst's development in the course of his own analysis and all further personal growth; for all this inevitably determines the kind of patient, and the sort of problem he can - or cannot - work with. Lambert also suggests ways in which the analyst's psycho-social-cultural background may be a factor in deciding with which school of analysis he may choose to train. And so he brings together his own theoretical and clinical evolution with the fact of his being Anglo-Irish; with his keen interest in the history of ideas and practices whereby he can seek to demonstrate a historical continuum between the clinical attitudes of contemporary psychotherapy and those expressed in the Hippocratic Oath and St. Paul's concept of agape; and with his willingness to expose himself to and allow himself to be stimulated by the work of his colleagues, not least of those in the Freud-Jung group founded in London by Dr. William Kraemer in 1964.'
