Abstract

92 necessitate scrutiny beyond the scope of his thesis, Schneider reiterates his long-standing argument against the utopian expansiveness of the "Wilbe- rians" as well as suggests an existential basis for religion. Finally, Schneider presents his contribution to existential therapy. Essentially, it consists of the attempt to help the patient integrate the contradictory, paradoxical extremes of everyday life. He summarizes: The key dictums here have been (1) address the client's desire and capacity for (constrictive or expansive) integration; (2) align the ther- apeutic approach with this desire and capacity; and (3) invite clients into increasingly anxious domains of their experience (keeping fully aware of the first dictum), so as to enhance their capacity to construc- tively transform those domains. (p. 204) Schneider's consideration of the paradoxical phenomena of constriction and expansion continues the existential tradition in psychotherapy. While one might wonder about the constrictive nature of the thesis itself as it reduces a vast array of descriptions (as well as psychoanalytic and psycho- logical nosology) to the polarity, it provides a means of understanding the fear and dread experienced by troubled people in the context of the contradictions of everyday existence. Furthermore, it offers both a philo- sophic and
