Karen Horney - A Psychoanalyst′s Search for Self Understanding


Product Description
Product Details


Founder of the International Karen Horney Society, Paris (English, Univ. of Florida) surveys psychoanalyst Horney's life and work, demonstrating how Horney's theories evolved from her own inner struggles. Drawing on new sources, including letters from Horney to her daughters, Paris expands work by biographers Jack L. Rubins (Karen Horney: Gentle Rebel of Psychoanalysis, LJ 9/15/78) and Susan Quinn (A Mind of Her Own: The Life of Karen Horney, LJ 10/15/87). Unfortunately, these new sources lack the depth of diaries already available to scholars, and Paris must rely on anecdotes and Horney's theoretical works for subjective details of her later life. Paris's most valuable contributions are chapters assessing Horney's mature theory, its contribution to modern psychology, and its applications for interdisciplinary studies. Recommended for academic libraries.-Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
