Review of Kohut’s Freudian Vision by Phillip Rubovitz-Seitz, M.D.
“Through scholarly effort Rubovitz-Seitz demonstrates the many continuities that exist between major elements in Kohut’s work and that of Freud. In so doing, he seems to offer his book, Kohut’s Freudian Vision, as an antidote to these misconceptions.”
Review of Intimate Attachments: Toward a New Self Psychology by Morton Shane, Estelle Shane and Mary Gales.
“Despite the fact that analysts whose contributions fell outside the canon were treated as heretics rather than as participants in a scientific discourse, brave analysts have occasionally emerged to challenge our diffident field with new ideas. Morton Shane, Estelle Shane, and Mary Gales are three such courageous analysts and their book, Intimate Attachments: Toward a New Self Psychology clearly and directly challenges basic psychoanalytic assumptions.”
