0 Reviews
This title presents a rich assortment of the author's psychoanalytic contributions. He ably integrates the work of Winnicott, Bion, Klein, Kernberg and Kohut with that of Lacan, Bouvet and McDougal, to present an integrated treatise on object relations and its interface with structuralism. Andre Green occupies a unique position in psychoanalysis today, and his work represents a synthesis of the traditions of Lacan, Winnicott andBion. This volume collects fourteen of his papers together with a substantial introduction. The papers range widely across clinical and theoretical issues including borderline states, the true and false self, and narcissism. On Private Madness has achieved the status of a modern psychoanalytic classic, and this new impression will be welcomed by all those admirers of Dr. Green who wish to have these seminal paperscollected together."
