In this important book, esteemed psychoanalyst Otto F. Kernberg reviews some of the recent developments and controversies in psychoanalytic theory and technique. Gathering together both previously published articles and extensive new material, Dr. Kernberg examines such issues as the new psychoanalytic views of homosexuality, bisexuality, and the influence of gender in the analytic relationship. He explores the application of psychoanalysis to non-clinical fields, including the problem of psychoanalytic research and its clinical implications, the validation of psychoanalytic interventions in the clinical process, and the challenges of psychoanalytic education. He shows how psychoanalysis can be helpful in addressing such cultural problems as socially sanctioned violence. And he asserts the continued relevance of object relations theory and its compatibility with Freud's dual drive theory.


Otto F. Kernberg, M.D., is director of the Personality Disorders Institute at New York-Presbyterian Hospital; professor of psychiatry at Cornell University Medical College; and training and supervising analyst at the Columbia University Centre for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. He is also the author of Ideology, Conflict, and Leadership in Groups and Organizations; Aggression in Personality Disorders and Perversions; Love Relations: Normality and Pathology; and Severe Personality Disorders, all published by Yale University Press.


" Kernberg offers succinct, newly provocative insights and perspectives on the increasingly international literature of psychoanalysis." -- Scott Dowling, M.D., Cleveland Psychoanalytic Institute
