'This book is a fascinating interweaving of Stoic philosophy and contemporary cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). Robertson rightly reminds us of how much CBT owes its philosophical origins to the Stoics but, sadly, how often this debt is insufficiently acknowledged. He urges us to redirect our attention to the past to see how modern CBT still has much to learn from its ancient precursors. Highly recommended.'- Michael Neenan, Co-Director of the CBT Programme, Centre for Stress Management, Bromley, Kent, UK'Many of us have felt the need for a book that covers the underlying philosophy of the cognitive-behavioural therapies in much greater depth. This book provides us with the missing link between the theory and the philosophy. It is a fascinating read and could be considered as either a prequel or a sequel to the standard textbook read by a trainee or experienced cognitive-behavioural or rational emotive practitioner who wants to understand these approaches to therapy within an historical framework.'- Professor Stephen Palmer, PhD, FARBT, FBACP, Director of the Centre for Stress Management, London'The author has uncovered a wealth of connections between modern cognitive-behavioural therapies and ancient Stoic philosophy. It should be read by anyone interested in understanding the historical roots of CBT or in learning about how ancient psychotherapeutic methods can add to the modern therapist's toolkit.'- Tim LeBon, UKCP registered psychotherapist and author of Wise Therapy'Donald Robertson is blazing a trail to discover the sources of cognitive-behavioural therapy, and Stoic philosophy is prime among these. A fascinating work that should be compulsory reading for all practitioners in the field and interested lay people, providing insights into how ancient philosophy can give us the coping and life success strategies we are all looking for, both as professionals and in private life. A great read!'- Tom Butler-Bowdon, author of 50 Self-Help Classics and 50 Psychology Classics

Putting the soul back into CBT 23. November 2010
Von Jules Evans - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Donald Robertson, a British therapist who is head of the UK College of CBT, has a new book out called The Philosophy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which looks at the roots of CBT in ancient Greek philosophy. Donald, like me, is fascinated by the role ancient Greco-Roman philosophy, particularly Stoicism, has played in inspiring the cognitive revolution in modern psychology, and has done a brilliant job at researching this influence, not just on the theoretical side of CBT, but also in terms of practical techniques which therapists use today.

Donald was inspired by his reading of the French classicist Pierre Hadot, who sadly passed away a few months ago. There wasn't a single obituary of Hadot in the British press, although to my mind he was one of the great philosophers of the last 50 years. But he was very humble, shy, didn't give interviews, so he didn't get the media attention he deserved. Perhaps he preferred it that way. Most academics know his ideas, if at all, through Michel Foucault, who was much less shy about media attention.

Hadot transformed the modern understanding of ancient philosophy, by reminding us that, for the ancients, philosophy was a way of life, something that consisted in a set of 'spiritual exercises', which one practiced to transform one's psyche and achieve inner peace. Philosophy provided a sort of first-aid kit which ordinary people could turn to in moments of emotional crisis - or to make themselves more resilient in preparation for those crises.

As Donald shows, many of these 'spiritual exercises' have been picked up and re-used by modern psychology, thanks to the work of Albert Ellis and Aaron Beck, the two inventors of cognitive therapy, who were both inspired by their reading of ancient Greek philosophy. But not all of the ancients' therapeutic techniques have been re-discovered, and Donald has performed some very valuable research in exploring and uncovering other exercises which modern psychology could deploy.

There are still some areas of the ancients' tool-kit that Donald doesn't discuss - for example, he doesn't discuss the physical training exercises that ancient philosophers recommended, such as exercises to do with one's diet, one's clothing, one's sleeping and bathing arrangements, one's gymnastic and sporting activities etc, although these were an important part of their spiritual philosophy. That's indicative, perhaps, of CBT, which tends to forget the body in its focus on thoughts and beliefs. I've always thought CBT could be effectively combined with the Alexander Technique - aren't our emotional habits physical as much as they are cognitive? Aren't our attitudes embodied in our posture, our muscles, our facial expressions?

The book also does not mention Positive Psychology, although the relationship between Positive Psychology and ancient Greek philosophy is a rich one - Martin Seligman, Jonathan Haidt and others have all returned to Greek philosophy, particularly Aristotle, in their exploration of the science of flourishing (or 'eudaimonics', as it is sometimes called).

The book left me chewing over some of the problems that arise from the meeting between modern psychology and ancient philosophy: what are the differences between CBT and ancient philosophy? To what extent has CBT dropped the language of morality, virtue and God in its recycling of ancient philosophy? Are CBT and Positive Psychology using the techniques of ancient philosophy towards the goal of happiness, rather than the goal of virtue - and are they wrong to do so? These are some of the thorny questions which we have still to work out.

Still, the book is a tour-de-force of scholarly research. Robertson has gone beyond Hadot, really, in amassing detailed quotes and references about the spiritual exercises. It's easily the best book written so far on the relationship between ancient philosophy and modern cognitive psychology - indeed, it's pretty much the only book written, as far as I'm aware. It continues to amaze me that more hasn't been written on this subject - although to be fair, philosophers like Martha Nussbaum and John Sellars, and psychologists like Jonathan Haidt, have done some good work.

Philosophy and psychology are beginning to talk to each other - but the dialogue is still quite young, which is why Robertson's book is so valuable - because, unusually, he is very literate in both cultures.

This is a great book. 12. Januar 2011
Von Miguel A. Trujillo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Every person on earth should read this book. It is chock full of great insights and is very inspiring. The author gets his main points across convincingly. This book is for anyone who wants to learn more about how to use his brain and live his life. An excellent read. I learned a lot about stoicism and CBT while reading this book, and I consider myself fairly well read in these subjects. I intend to read this book a second time (doing this is rare for me).

Ancient Philosophy meets Modern Therapy 20. Oktober 2010
Von Tim - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is certainly one of the therapies people are talking about and governments are investing money in promoting. With good reason, as it is evidence-based and can work a lot more rapidly than many alternatives.
However CBT does have its limitations, one of which, some would say, is the lack of philosophical depth. However whilst CBT can be practised in a superficial, cookbook style, this isn't necessarily so. Particularly when one realises that CBT has very strong connections with centuries of practice in the ancient world. This is one of the reasons why this book is so relevant to modern practitioners and anyone else interested in CBT and REBT.
In this book Donald Robertson, who has a wealth of experience in a number of therapies as well as a very strong academic background, has uncovered a wealth of connections between modern cognitive behavoural therapies and ancient Stoic philosophy. You can read not only about the philosophical origins of CBT but also about the history of Stoicism and other philosophical therapies. If you are keen to learn about practical techniques, there's a lot of them too - a whole section is devoted to what the author calls "The Stoic Armamentarium".
This is an eclectic book -you'll find fascinating accounts of Ellis's REBT, hypnotism and Buddhism as well as Beck, Seneca and the usual suspects. All in all, highly recommended.
This book should be read by anyone interested in understanding the historical roots of CBT or in
learning about how ancient psychotherapeutic methods can add to the modern therapist's toolkit

The Ancient philosophers grappled with the same problems of the human predicament as our modern therapists! 17. November 2013
Von GirlScoutDad - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Many people are superficially aware that modern cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational-emotive therapy (RET or REBT) have roots in the Greco-Roman philosophy of the ancient Stoics. For those select few who are interested in knowing more about the nexus between ancient philosophy and modern psychotherapy, this book is a great place to start.

The most interesting aspect of the book for me was learning how little the fundamental problems of being human have changed in 3,000 years - from the time of Diogenes, Pythagoras, Socrates, and Epictetus through to Spinoza and right up to the present day. In the time of the Stoics, philosophy was not an abstract exercise in parsing the meaning of language as it is today, but rather a vital, pragmatic attempt to find the right path in living. This book shows that our modern cognitive-behavioral therapists didn't so much discover solutions to life's worries, but rather re-discovered ideas and formulas first propounded much earlier by the Ancients.

The author discusses a number of interesting topics including: the quest to find the path of "virtue" (i.e., character development) in life; how to find tranquility amid life's chaos; the power of anticipation (e.g., "memento mori") in mitigating life's tragedies; how to manage emotions; and how to live a deeper, more profound life.

Also, the lives of some amazing ancient Stoics, including the former slave turned philosopher Epictetus, Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Roman Senator Seneca, and others bring a narrative life to what is otherwise a textbook-like work. In sum, for those with an interest in philosophy, psychology, and classical history, this is a very interesting and enlightening read.

Well done 28. Dezember 2012

This is a splendid book. It is a thorough review of the relationship between modern cognitive behavior therapy methods and ancient Stoic principles. The author is knowledgeable in both areas and he writes well. The book will be of primary interest to professional CBT practitioners, but it is accessible to others who have some some knowledge of the field.
