Psychoanalysis and the human problem- Jiddu Krishnamurti. Commentaries on Living Series 2 / Chapter 40
Krishnamurti was an Indian philosopher from the C20th. In this text he writes about an encounter with a psychologist. The term hypnosis appears in his description of the psychologist’s career. For this reason it awakens our curiosity and it seems relevant to share. Then begins a questionaire to Krishnamurti which turns into a short discussion.

Some therapists may believe that it is not for them to estate what is right or wrong for someone else. Nevertheless some people may look for such guidance and, in their search, refer to therapists or/and spiritual guides. One could argue that treating someone from the point of view of “knowing what is best for them” may be ethically dangerous . Some people may respond positively to the concepts of spirit and spirituality. Others may reject these concepts and believe that, whatever is that is happenning, it all takes place in the brain. Just to mention two different positions amongst many other, none of which can – yet- be scientifically proven. We would like to encourage all readers to think critically about this text, taking into account the above reflections and any others that each reader may propose. The aim of this proposition is to encourage each reader to form their own opinion regarding all the concepts discussed here and in this way become more aware of their own beliefs, needs and desires..
