Courting Ellen West
November 20, 2009 11:45 AM   Subscribe

“The Case of Ellen West” was published by the Swiss psychiatrist, Ludwig Binswanger, in 1944–1945 and (as far as I can tell) appeared in English translation in 1958. Anyone know where I can get a copy? Usual search suspects are turning up only the Carl Rogers article, "Ellen West and Loneliness", in the Review of Existential Psychology and Psychiatry (which I've requested via interlibrary loan) and some other scholarly pubs on Rogers (behind the usual pay walls).

It seems to be published in the 1958 book Existence; a new dimension in psychiatry and psychology. Edited by Rollo May, published: [New York] Basic Books [1958]. This looks like a textbook and my library (UC Berkeley, CA) holds multiple copies of multiple editions.

It appears to have been published in a 1958 book entitled Existence: A New Dimension in Psychiatry and Psychology. Many copies of this book are available at libraries in the Chicago area.

On preview: what gyusan said.

Thanks to both of you! Something in my searches wasn't getting to that information and I couldn't get my personal librarian (my mom! hi Mom!) on the phone.

If you really want to get to the source, I think it originally appeared in the Schweizer Archiv für Neurologie und Psychiatrie.
