View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Psychoanalytic theory (Freud, 1915) provides a vague understanding of what drives us. Despite our immense cerebral cortex, what drives us is a "goad without a goal", fears, anger, grief and loss. Psychoanalysis can be like a balm on the wounds of a suffering individual but is not necessarily a boon to our society. A footnote to all this are the concerns of a woman wondering about the absurdity of her place in that society. Monique Bal (1938) is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in Dutch Psychoanalytic Society and the Belgian School of Psychoanalysis. Since 2004, she has focused on studying the affective branch of neuroscience and she is also a member of the International Association for Neuro-Psychoanalysis.
