Thirty-five papers from a variety of technical and intellectual journals trace fifty years of distinguished service to psychoanalysis, sociology, politics and anthropology.

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

About the Author(s)

Roger Money-Kyrle (1898-1980) was an influential psychoanalyst particularly noted for his promotion and development of the ideas of Melanie Klein. He was analysed by Ernest Jones, by Freud and later by Klein. Initially his interest in psychoanalysis was stimulated in connection with his work in philosophy, anthropology, and the social sciences generally, but following his analysis with Klein he became a practising analyst and subsequently a training analyst. His papers reflect both his interest in the contributions that psychoanalytic thought could make to understanding social problems, in particular in matters of war and politics, and also his contributions to analytic theory and praxis.
