Twenty years ago, noted psychiatrist and dream researcher, Ernest Hartmann, developed the concept of 'boundaries' as a dimension of
personality. With his new book, Boundaries: A New Way to Look at the World, Hartmann extends the boundaries concept beyond the individual and into the world at large.
* How do boundaries affect our dreams, and is there a biological connection?
* How do boundaries play out in relationships at work, at home or in love?
* What happens to boundaries when countries or individuals are threatened?
* Can boundaries help us understand terrorism, world peace or international relations?
* What about art, science, philosophy and religion - can boundaries affect them as well?
Hartmann addresses each topic in accessible language, one chapter at a time, in a book that broadens our understanding of the outside world while deepening our understanding of ourselves.
