0 Reviews
Dr. Otto Kernberg, the internationally renowned psychoanalytic theorist and clinician, here examines the factors affecting the success and failure of sexual love in couples, from adolescence to old age. Dr. Kernberg considers both so-called normal and pathological relationships, including the role of narcissism, masochism, and aggression in each. The result is a book that expands the boundaries of our current understanding of love relations.
