"No healing of the conflict between the spirit and the flesh is possible so long as our animal-instinctual nature is considered inferior to the mind and psyche," so writes Robert Stein. His book, originally published as Incest and Human Love, explores eros and incest for a new version of therapy that tries to heal the love/sex split. This work contains chapters on the transformational power of eros, on the psychological role of the phallos in male and female psychology, and on the archetypal family situation. This view ends up challenging our ego psychology, Jungian conservatism, Freudian reductionism, and every psychoanalytical method that shears too far away from an instinctual sense of the soul.
