This book is a personal reappraisal of psychoanalytic theories in the light of clinical experience. The first part is about sexuality and begins where psychoanalysis began, with hysteria. The second part is about the ego and the super-ego, the relationship of which dominated Freud's writing from his middle period onwards. The last part is on narcissism and the narcissistic disorders, a major preoccupation of psychoanalysis in the second half of the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Ronald Britton is a well-known international psychoanalytic writer who has lectured widely in Europe and North and South America. He is a former President of the British Psychoanalytical Society and a Vice-President of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA). He has a predominantly clinical approach but also a special interest in the relationship of psychoanalysis to literature, philosophy and theology. He was given the IPA Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement in 2013 and the Sigourney Award for Outstanding Psychoanalytic Contributions in 2014.

Review:

'Ronald Britton's papers over the past fifteen years or so have been beacons of clarity and creativity. He has reformulated Kleinian thinking (as far as I am concerned) in the same paradigm shift way that Bion did forty years ago. I have learnt more from his writings than any other member of our Society writing today.'- Peter Fonagy, Professor of Psychoanalysis, University College, London'When Britton applies psychoanalysis to literature or uses literature to illustrate psychoanalytic concepts, both fields benefit from the encounter...Britton achieves a depth and clarity in the application of psychoanalytic ideas to the realm of poetry and biography that is rarely equaled.'- Howard Levine, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association
