http://www.matthewfox.org/  Rev. Matthew Fox, theologian. “I consider Otto Rank to be one of the great spiritual giants of the twentieth century, a genius as a psychologist and a saint as a human being. Though vilified by his original community of Freudians, he never became bitter. He died a feminist and deeply committed to social justice, in 1939…. His deep understanding of creativity makes him a mentor for all of us living in a postmodern world…. I believe that Art and Artist, especially chapters 12 to 14, may well emerge as the most valuable psychoanalysis of the spiritual life in our time.”
