Review by:
Nina Farhi

‘Pluralism is engaged in the discovery of truths just as monism is engaged in the discovery of Truth.’ Thus Samuels sets out to engage us not just in a consideration of psychological diversity but in the contemplation of philosophical and cultural creeds where paradox, conflict and uncertainty are welcomed as the very seedbed of psyche itself. From the first chapter, Samuels makes a major demand on our quite specific attention that a pluralistic approach does not seek to unify by comparison nor to synthesize by negating difference. It is this argument that gives this challenging book its major strength.
