Compliments and appreciation.

Hindsight subjective socially-constructed revisionistic narratives are so powerful they are becoming their own school/orientation in psychotherapy.

Thank you for yet another thought-provoking scholarly perspective.
Hello Lynn,

Many thanks for the comments. It sometimes surprises me that Kisshomaru Ueshiba's biography of his father is not seen in a proper context (or rather, what I think should be a proper context). This is not to condone the selectivity and inaccuracies, but to acknowledge that Kisshomaru was writing within a certain tradition, which blended history with fiction. John Stevens cheerfully admitted that he was writing hagiography and not straight biography.

I presume that the technical articles you write about psychotherapy are also written according to an acknowledged tradition that is commonly accepted within the profession.

Best wishes,
