Overview

Luigi Zoja views the origin and evolution of the father from a Jungian perspective. He argues that the father's role in bringing up children is a social construction that has been subject to change throughout history - and looks at the consequences of this, along with the crisis facing fatherhood today. The Father will be welcomed by people from a wide variety of disciplines, including practitioners and students of psychology, sociology and anthropology, and by the educated general reader.
