n.— «Once we saw ourselves as serving God, then science, then the state: now we turn inwards and serve ourselves, worship our individuality. This is what I mean by Therapism. It is a religion which began a hundred years ago in the consulting rooms of psychotherapists, and which now, in its wider social and political context, sweeps all before it.» —“Mind At The End Of Its Tether” by Fay Weldon Guardian (U.K.) Jan. 11, 1997.
