نویسنده دوست داشتن خود رو نه به عنوان راه حل جایگزین در زمانی که شاید تصور میکنیم از بیرون عشقی دریافت نمیکنیم، که به عنوان یگانه راه به دست اوردن عشق مطرح میکنه. به علاوه ی تمام تحلیل های دیگه ای که در سراسر کتاب مطرح میشه در مورد الگوهای روابط پدر -مادر- فرزند که دریچه های جدیدی برای فکر کردن رو باز میکنه، این باور یکی از بزرگترین دستاوردهایی بود که همراه من موند از مطالعه این کتاب؛ فهم این موضوع که دوست داشتن افراطی دیگران منشائی نداره به جز کمبود دوست داشتن خود، و اینکه به شدت به دنبال عشق ب ...more

A deep dive into the psychology of relationships. It was a please to read the book as I got a lot of insights about the way I choose my partners and how this process changed with time and experience. I highly recommend reading it if you want to get to know yourself better.

#عاشقی_یعنی_جدایی نوشته ی #گای_کارنو، روانکاو یونگی اهل کانادا است.
محتوای کتاب همچون آموزه های خود یونگ، سنگین، اسرار آمیز و گاهی مبهم است اما در مسیر خواندن بارها و بارها شوک وارد می کند. ماهیت دنیای روانشناسی همین است. برخلاف تصور، روانشناسی نه تنها با امید واهی و گذرا میانه ای ندارد بلکه شما را با سیلی واقعیت روبه رو می کند که اگر آن را تاب بیاورید نتیجه ای لذت بخش و پایدار در انتظار شماست و من آن را پلی از تاریکی به سوی نور تعبیر میکنم...
همانطور که در دیباچه آمده است:

A great book, although the title is rather confusing. Not a self-help book, as it may seem, nor a book about relationships: it's more a guide to help women and men have a better understanding of themselves and their choices, their behavior in a relationship.
It gives no recipe, no quick fix, but works rather like an eye-opener. To be read whether you're single, in a relationship, separated or in any other, more complicated situation.

کتابی که هر کسی حتی یکبار باید بخواند.
May 29, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This book goes so deep it is hard to read sometimes. It discusses relationships in very good and honest way. It's nothing like the self-help books you probably heard of or read. By showing the truth with the very unpleasant parts it becomes the best book about relationships. I can't recommend it enough. ...more
Hard to read at times. A firm believer in jungian vernacular. When the subconsciousness is described as factual behavior it is sometimes a bit too much to Take in. Hard work for sure. Deep, thought provoking, truth pushing nevertheless. Insight to be fetched there. If you are up for it?
Le titre de ce livre ne reflète pas son contenu (et c'est tant mieux) : il ne présente pas une vision pessimiste de l'amour mais donne beaucoup d'informations très intéressantes, avec douceur, élégance et bienveillance, sur l'incidence des liens parents-enfants, et en particulier mère-fils, sur nos relations amoureuses. Un vrai coup de cœur, qui me donne envie de lire d'autres ouvrages du même auteur. ...more

Psychanalyste de formation, Guy Corneau n'a pas un parcours traditionnel.
Son intérêt s'est d'abord porté vers le théâtre. Directeur de la troupe Organisation Ô, un collectif de création, il a écrit, joué et mis en scène plusieurs pièces, notamment La complainte de Fleurdelysée Fortin qui attira l'attention du réalisateur Pierre Gauvreau et qui fut présentée sur les ondes de Radio-Québec en 1974.
