Product Description

Review

These are extremely insightful psychoanalytic essays on things like worry and solitude, which are of much more concern to me than issues like wanting to sleep with your closest relatives --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Tantalising title aside, Philip Adams' collection of essays makes a most stimulating though somewhat heavy read, as he uncovers subtle internal states in the individual using clinical material as examples. I enjoyed the book thoroughly though often needed to re-read paragraphs for deeper meaning. A boook one could return to again and again for insight and reflection. Most suitable for philosophers, psychoanalysts and those with a literary mind but there is something for the general reader too. I would recommend this as an excellent intro to Adams' writing. I first read it ten years ago, and the book still has much to offer a decade later.

Must have lent this out to someone. Suddenly missed it, and ordered another one, always an interesting read. Do not be put off by frivolous title, actually a very deep and complex book.

Great book, just discovered by accident in a bookstore (at Harvard of all places): investigative, playful, philosophical. I am finally beginning to understand what is fun and important about psychoanalysis.
