Editorial Reviews

Edward A. Wolpert
Sixteen papers on the topics of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and applied psychoanalysis have been gathered together in this book, representing the author's significant contribution to the study of sexual perversion, addiction, violence, and the relationship between the analyst and the patient. The papers demonstrate that the author was more than a member of the "Independent Group," falling between Anna Freud and Melanie Klein. He was an independent thinker who was alive to the communicative power of the word in the psychoanalytic situation. The book is clearly intended for the graduate psychoanalyst, but it could be read with profit by anyone working psychotherapeutically with very sick patients. Perversions are covered in five chapters, analytic process issues in five chapters, delinquency and drug dependence in one chapter each. Violence is discussed throughout, but it is the central issue in one chapter. The remaining three chapters are devoted to a consideration of the Orpheus myth and assorted thoughts on psychoanalytic history. As a sampling of the author's thought, the book is invaluable. However, the title and subtitle do not do the book justice, for the main thrust of the book is really a humanistic analytic approach to severely disturbed patients. Unfortunately, there is no bibliography of all of the author's publications.

Description: Sixteen papers on the topics of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and applied psychoanalysis have been gathered together in this book, representing the author's significant contribution to the study of sexual perversion, addiction, violence, and the relationship between the analyst and the patient.
Purpose: The papers demonstrate that the author was more than a member of the "Independent Group," falling between Anna Freud and Melanie Klein. He was an independent thinker who was alive to the communicative power of the word in the psychoanalytic situation.
Audience: The book is clearly intended for the graduate psychoanalyst, but it could be read with profit by anyone working psychotherapeutically with very sick patients.
Features: Perversions are covered in five chapters, analytic process issues in five chapters, delinquency and drug dependence in one chapter each. Violence is discussed throughout, but it is the central issue in one chapter. The remaining three chapters are devoted to a consideration of the Orpheus myth and assorted thoughts on psychoanalytic history.
Assessment: As a sampling of the author's thought, the book is invaluable.
