Reviews and Endorsements

'The Psychotic: Aspects of the Personality commands particular respect because its author maintains an open-minded attitude towards the many still unresolved questions regarding psychosis. He concentrates his efforts on clinical aspects of psychotic patients that are approachable by the psychoanalytic method; on illuminating continuities of different types of psychopathology where one would not a priori have suspected them; on illustrating the functions of primitive defense operations in the transference and countertransference; and on conveying a live and in-depth narrative of the technical approach. For all these reasons, his book should be most helpful to the clinician, challenging and stimulating to the psychoanalytic researcher and theoretician, and a significant contribution to a very contemporary aspect of psychoanalytic exploration.'
- Dr Otto Kernberg, in his Foreword
