Psyche, Self and Soul is a many faceted exploration of the relationship of psychotherapy and spirituality. Introducing the term ′an everyday transcendence′, Gargiulo studies the silent alone space of each individual and relates a psychoanalytic exploration to a spiritual journay. Calling on the thought of philosophers, theologians, scientists and analysts, the text gives a new framework for understanding psychoanalysis and spirituality grounded in the here and now as well as a psychoanalysis that respects mystery, justice and civility.

The clinical cases demonstrate how each patient′s task must be understood as individualized, and consequently, how the analyst/therapist must creatively adapt clinical technique. D.W. Winnicott′s thoughts are applied throughout the text and are given a comprehensive summary in the final chapters.
