內容簡介

諾貝爾文學獎得主柯慈(J. M. Coetzee) 與心理治療師Arabella Kurtz在說故事藝術與心理治療之間迸發出一連串精彩對話,探問真相在小說與心理治療之間的純度,是一部關於文學、精神分析與哲學的力作。

小說家獨自一人說故事,而心理治療師則與病人合作,鼓勵他們透過訴說自己的生命故事,來達到治療的目的。長期以來,柯慈對道德心理學的興趣,讓他禁不住探問:如果作家為了達到某種戲劇張力,在自傳式的故事裡利用修辭來掩蓋或美化某些事實,這在道德上是可以被允許的嗎?心理治療師應該要病人全然面對並吐露真相,還是容許病人在某種程度上撒謊,以便增加他們的自信心,進而改善他們的心理障礙?故事背後的事實一定要是客觀、中性的嗎?還是可以因為情緒、記憶成為游移而主觀的事實?

兩位作者透過討論幾位小說家,如賽萬提斯與杜斯妥也夫斯基,以及精神分析家佛洛伊德與克萊恩(Melanie Klein),探討了個人與群體如何從說故事中得到解放。例如:開墾的先民們,為了生存,極其殘酷的對待原住民,先民墾拓的國族故事,美化並且正當化他們的殘酷行徑。兩位作者探索了人類自我檢視的能力,也為我們自己的生命故事提供了明晰的洞察。

附註 – 詞彙釋疑
psychotherapist (心理治療師)與psychiatrist (精神科醫師)主要的不同點在於,心理治療師通常透過對談來處理病人在心智與情緒上的障礙,而精神科醫師則擁有醫學背景,主要透過開立藥物來治療病患。本書的作者之一Arabella Kurtz屬於前者。

A fascinating dialogue on the human inclination to make up stories between a Nobel Prize-winning writer and a psychotherapist.

Arabella Kurtz and J. M. Coetzee consider psychotherapy and its wider social context from different perspectives, but at the heart of both their approaches is a concern with stories. Working alone, the writer is in sole charge of the story he or she tells. The therapist, on the other hand, collaborates with the patient in telling the story of their life. What kind of truth do the stories created by patient and therapist aim to uncover: objective truth or the shifting and subjective truth of memories explored and re-experienced in the safety of the therapeutic relationship? 

The authors discuss both individual psychology and the psychology of the group: the school classroom, the gang, the settler nation where the brutal deeds of the ancestors have to be accommodated into a national story. Drawing on great writers like Cervantes and Dostoevsky and on psychoanalysts like Freud and Melanie Klein, they offer illuminating insights into the stories we tell of our lives.
