In his foundational work "The Restoration of the Self," noted
psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut boldly challenges what he called "the
limits of classical analytic theory" and the Freudian orthodoxy.
Here Kohut proposes a "psychology of the self" as a theory in its
own right--one that can stand beside the teachings of Freud and
Using clinical data, Kohut explores issues such as the role of
narcissism in personality, when a patient can be considered cured,
and the oversimplifications and social biases that unduly
influenced Freudian thought. This volume puts forth some of Kohut's
most influential ideas on achieving emotional health through a
balanced, creative, and joyful sense of self.
"Kohut speaks clearly from his identity as a
psychoanalyst-healer, showing that he is more of a psychoanalyst
than most, and yet calling for major theoretical revisions
including a redefinition of the essence of
psychoanalysis."--"American Journal of Psychotherapy"
