The Examined Life

Book of the week on Radio 4 is "The Examined Life" by Stephen Grosz, and on the strength of the episode I've just listened to it's well worth tracking down. Quoting from the BBC site -

"The world bedevils us. To make sense of it, we tell ourselves stories. In a series of short, vivid, dramatic tales, using psychoanalytic insight without psychoanalytic jargon, The Examined Life tracks the collaborative journey of therapist and patient as they uncover the hidden feelings behind apparently ordinary behaviour patterns."

You'll have missed two episodes (at least) by the time you read this, of course, but it's on the iPlayer at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/search?q=examined%20life
