Most studies of lives rely on objective methods of analysis. The Intensive Journal method relies instead on the subjective capacities of the investigator, and is particularly sensitive to how depth or unconscious processes are at work in the life, not from the perspective of pathology, but from the perspective of growth. Each "chapter" of this life study of Franz Kafka works through a period of time in Kafka's life as if he were keeping the journal. This is not an imaginative exercise but a careful following of the Intensive Journal method for working non-analytically in a life.
