Reviews and Endorsements

‘Roger Money-Kyrle belonged to the English tradition of the first quarter of the twentieth century, a time of wide horizons, and his project was correspondingly ample - an attempt to understand man and the world man makes for himself. He used the knowledge of psychoanalysis to illumine areas in biology, anthropology, politics, ethics and history, in addition to making contributions to clinical and theoretical psychoanalysis itself.’
- Edna O'Shaughnessy, from the Prefatory Note

‘The rectification of man’s model of his world involves a transformation of values, for while the truth may liberate people from persecutory anxieties, it imposes upon them love for the worlds both inner and outer, and consequent guilt for the damage caused by their greed and destructive envy. This seems to me to be the essence of Money-Kyrle's wisdom and, like Socrates who knew how little he knew, no man is wiser than he. Where I learned psychoanalytic theory and technique from others, I learned the meaning of psychoanalysis as a thing-in-the-world from him.’
- Donald Meltzer, from the Editor's Introduction
