Response to Barbara Stephens'spaper in JAP, 46, 3

David Tresan, M.D.

For me the beauty of Barbara Stephens's paper lies in her balance. In her reconstruction of the Buber/Jung disputations, she presents each position lucidly in the charged esoteric arena of what is God, never foreclosing the argument, never truncating an exchange or line of thought. In her exposition, she stays open to the infinite imponderables and to her own unknowing, and as a consequence, her story and the disputants'stay ever alive in thereading, more so than either Buber's or Jung's polemic alone. In my experience one cannot write with such authenticity without the experience of oneself having intensively searched in the environs of the mysteriumm tremendum. Courting the ground of Being with intelligence and balance is, in my opinion, perhaps the highest psychology.

With regard to content, the Buber/Jung disputations call reality itself into question.
