Philip Cushman, Ph.D. is a psychotherapist in private practice on Vashon Island, WA, and retired clinical core faculty member from doctoral programs in psychology at Antioch University Seattle and the California School of Professional Psychology (Alameda).
In his latest book, Cushman use a hermeneutic perspective to critique psychology and argues for the place of politics, philosophy, and history in graduate school programs. Each chapter focuses on a different topic ranging from theory to philosophical problems to professional issues within the psychology field critiqued with a historical and sociopolitical lens.
Travels with the Self shines a light on contemporary psychology practices and how they can be placed within history to understand one’s own positional context. This text will appeal to psychoanalysts, psychotherapist and psychologist, as well as students, scholars of philosophy, history and cultural studies.
