Hall of Fame


The Karnacology Hall of Fame is devoted to celebrating the lives of those who have made outstanding contributions to the world of therapy and mental health.

We launch the series with a powerful and moving tribute by Professor Brett Kahr to Harry Karnac, the remarkable founder of Karnac Books, whose “contribution as an educator of psychoanalytical students and as a disseminator of psychological culture remains unparalleled”.
