Item description for The Indescribable and the Undiscussable by Dan Bar-On...

This book provides a unique way of looking at life experiences, individual as well as inter-personal. It proposes a new psychological theoretical framework in a way to which both laymen and professionals can relate while confronting similar issues in their everyday experiences and discourse.

The book is of especial relevance to present-day Central and East European societies, relating as it does to the problems of psychological adaptation arising from the transition from totalitarian to democratic regimes.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Indescribable and the Undiscussable?

Stunning portraiture of dialogue and its limits  Jan 11, 2001
I was put in mind in reading this amazing book by Dan Bar-on of a truly great painting, one that can make you cry while also puzzling you and demanding from you every ounce of wisdom even to begin to understand. From relatively "soft" or easy cases such as the analysis of literal pathfinding in the Sinai, the author moves through an incredible array of examples ranging from the almost trivial (two people exchanging glances on a train) to how to begin to make sense deep within the most emotional possible of human contexts (sexually-abused children, children of both Holocaust survivors and perpetrators). Bar-On is never hesitant to re-examine(and have others critique)his own interpretations. By making his own reflections vulnerable to criticism and revision he sheds light on how his "subjects" did or did not accomplish the same and thereby may teach the willing reader this most important of skills.
A stunning description of multiple perspective-taking  Feb 8, 1999
I have only read the first chapter of Bar-on's book, but that in itself makes the book worth reading. This is the story of three Israeli soldiers and a Bedouin partner finding their way in an uncharted desert terrain, each with a different strategy. The story and its analysis is a stunning and amazingly explicit example of different perspectives, how each of the individuals learn to understand and appreciate one another, and most of all to recognize when each view is most useful depending on the situation. I highly recommend the book if only for this one chapter--there's nothing like it.
