Pragmatic-Psychoanalytic Interpretations of Amos Oz's Writings: Words Significantly Uttered presents intermediate links between three intellectual domains: the literary works of Amos Oz, American Pragmatism, and object-relations psychoanalysis. The interdisciplinary method employed here involves a presentation of Oz's writings as the starting point for an existential debate that addresses a mental-conceptual struggle. This conceptual conflict, which has been given aesthetic shape in the literary work, inspires the presentation of central pragmatic and psychoanalytic concepts which contribute to a new and richer understanding of the conceptual tension or existential challenge. The chapters interpret Oz's works not only as literary masterpieces but as existential-philosophical expressions. Dorit Lemberger's argues that Oz reconceptualizes psychological, personal, familial, and often national, processes in a way that allows readers to understand such processes in general life from a retrospective perspective.
