A measure of our need for integrity, John Beebe writes, is that ""we rarely allow ourselves an examination of the concept itself. To do so would betray an unspoken philosophic, poetic, and psychological rule of our culture: not to disturb the mystery of what we desire most."" In this book, Beebe reveals much about the nature of integrity while honoring its central mystery. Beebe traces the evolution of the concept from a moral and theological notion to a psychological one. He explores the Eastern understanding of integrity, as well, basing his discussion on pre-Confucian manuscripts of the Tao Te Ching. Viewing anxiety and shame as functions of integrity, he shows the contributions depth psychology can make to integrity's development. He also looks at the ways sex difference and our resulting notions of gender have colored our culture's experience and expression of integrity. Drawing on his own years of experience as a psychotherapist, Beebe shows how the holding environment of psychotherapy can use delight and rage, and dreams and transference to reveal and foster individual integrity. ""Integrity in Depth"" is a groundbreaking work that moves the reader to think in a new way about the psychological basis of moral wholeness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An eloquent book with wide-ranging scholarship. . . . Beebe describes a cultural return that offers some hope that integrity is so deep-seated a human faculty that we cannot do without it."--Robert A. Johnson, author of Transformation--Robert A. Johnson, author of Transformation

" . . . a remarkable book, possibly the best in Jungian literature to convey the felt experience of the Self rather than simply ideas or theories about it."--Journal of Analytical Psychology
