Our humananthropathology is placed at the heart of all such problems.Echoing the pessimism of Schopenhauer, Cioran, Beckett, Gray andothers, Feltham nevertheless insists that answers may be formulatedthrough confrontation.

From the Back Cover:

What is the scope of the ‘human condition’? What arethe origins of universal human problems? What is wrong witheducation, marriage, religion, and therapy? How likely are we, ashumans, to correct these problems?

Colin Feltham, Professor of Critical Counselling Studies atSheffield Hallam University, UK, and member of Crisis: Forum forthe Study of Crisis in the 21st Century, argues that thecurrent crises of the human condition are merely symptoms of achronic wayward tendency, otherwise branded in What’sWrong With Us? as anthropathology. The origins of humansuffering are traced with interdisciplinary adeptness, exploringthe contemporary issues of human violence, deceit, patriarchy,rapaciousness, child abuse, irrationality and capitalist greed. Ourhuman anthropathology is assessed as being at the heart of suchproblems.

This book breaks new ground in bringing many anthropathologicalthemes together in a sustained frontal attack on dangerous humananachronisms. We cannot be sure that we can solve our problems butwe can be sure that denying them will protract and worsenthe situation for both ourselves and ourdescendants.   

A challenging and enlightening book for students and academicsin counselling and psychotherapy, psychology, sociology, philosophyand religion. Also a gripping read for those with a generalinterest in our current social state.
