Here Karen Horney develops a dynamic theory of neurosis centered on the basic conflict among attitudes of "moving forward" "moving against," and "moving away from" people.
Unlike Freud, Horney does not regard neurosis as rooted in instinct. In her words, her theory is constructive because "it allows us for the first time to tackle and resolve neurotic hopelessness. . . . Neurotic conflicts cannot be resolved by rational decision. . . . But [they] can be resolved by changing the conditions within the personality that brought them into being."
Neurotic conflicts & attempts at solutions, unresolved conflicts, etc

This is an awesome book. It has made me much more aware of my own personality and behaviors and why I do what I do. This book is great for someone who is truly honest with himself & willing to face the reality of who he is and make some changes for the better. This book has changed my life.Was this review helpful?
