Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
German American psychiatrist Horney (1885-1952) is well served by editor Paris (English, emeritus, Univ. of Florida; Karen Horney: A Psychoanalyst's Search for Self-Understanding). This work has two parts: one on feminine psychology and gender, the other on general psychoanalytic topics. Both parts have substantial introductions (each essay has a brief one), making this volume accessible to general readers and specialists. About half the 18 essays are previously unpublished, even untranslated, and foreshadow or augment Horney's books. Exiled from the Freudian establishment in 1941 (her resignation statement appears here), Horney fought for a more open, optimistic, growth-oriented, and socially conscious psychoanalysis. A feminist who put humanity above gender, she addressed topics of general interest with common sense and wisdom. Then as now, she presents a bracing challenge to all readers interested in self-understanding and human relations. Recommended for general adult libraries as well as psychology/human relations collections.--E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ.
