About the Author

Donna M. Orange, Ph.D., Psy.D., is a psychoanalyst and philosopher living in California. She teaches at the NYU Postdoctoral Program and the Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York. Recent books include Thinking for Clinicians (2010), The Suffering Stranger (2011), Nourishing the Inner Life of Clinicians and Humanitarians (2016) and Climate Crisis, Psychoanalysis, and Radical Ethics (2017)


"In this extraordinary book, Donna Orange helps us hear with our hearts. She challenges us to attend to those silenced by oppression, prejudice, violence, poverty, and other cruelties. This book is essential reading for the neophyte as well as the seasoned clinician, striving to hear the suffering other, as well as the muted voices within ourselves." --Sandra Buechler is a training and supervising analyst at the William Alanson White Institute, New York, USA

""I listen therefore I am." With hearing impaired, one-sided, how does an "I" take its place in a world of others? Using her own life as such an experiment in nature, Donna Orange openly, poignantly, and brilliantly explores the development of individuality and intersubjectivity, the essence of what it means to be a person. A leader recognized around the world for using psychoanalysis to explore the central questions of philosophy, Orange now brings fresh emotional immediacy and depth of serious thinking to the subject. This is a work of substantial significance, at once a beautiful literary memoir and a contribution of substantial significance." --Warren S. Poland, M.D., has practiced clinical psychoanalysis for over 50 years and is the former editor of the JAPA Review of Books "In Learning To Hear, Orange continues her ethical quest. Entwining history, philosophy and psychoanalysis, she exhorts us towards a mission of ethical hearing. For Orange, ethical hearing is distinct from agentic 'listening' - it is a receptivity to the speech and silence that has been kept in the shadows. This book humanizes its subject, and is an important contribution to the social-ethical turn in psychoanalysis." --Sue Grand, Ph.D., has been practicing couples, family, and individual therapy for over 40 years
