Maurice FriedmanPraise for the First Edition:
Althea Horner's Being and Loving discusses the most difficult problems of personal development and human existence with marvelous simplicity. What Martin Buber says about 'distancing' and 'relating' in his philosophical anthropology, she has presented in all concreteness. Using the twin poles of 'being' and 'loving' to indicate our simultaneous need for identity and intimacy, she has plotted the stages of the child's development for the first three years of its life. Illustrating with examples culled from her own practice as a psychotherapist, she draws on a wealth of knowledge of object relations and other theories of human development. Being and Loving is a book that has much to say to mental health professionals of every kind and school.
