Most popular at the top

  • Life and Artby James W. Hamilton

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 33.99

    In this volume an inquiry into the nature of the creative process is attempted by paying close attention to the lives of various artists, poets, novelists and playwrights, and selected works of each in order to demonstrate an essential relationship between the two, and that it is most difficult to delineate the nuances of the creative act by treating... more...

  • The Aesthetic Dimension of the Mindby Lia Pistiner de Cortinas

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 31.99

    'In this magisterial work, the author almost encyclopaedically reviews all of Bion's works and does so from the perspective (vertex) of the aesthetic dimension. She scans virtually all the essential elements of Bion's contributions and then details them at length, giving unusual clarifications as she does so..'This work constitutes an outstanding piece... more...

  • Tragic Knots in Psychoanalysisby Roy Schafer

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 24.99

    This is a collection of published and unpublished papers on clinical, theoretical and applied aspects of psychoanalysis that take up various aspects of unconscious mental processes and conflicts and their expression in the clinical transference and countertransference.

  • Sweet Dreamsby Robert J. Stoller

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 26.99

    A previously unpublished work by Robert Stoller. 'It was like discovering a previously unknown recording by the Beatles. On a 2007 visit to Robert Stoller's widow, Sybil, she handed me a manuscript. Bob's last book had been placed in a publishing queue by his retiring editor. After Bob's death Sybil was told that the publisher had discontinued psychoanalytic... more...

  • Perversions of Fascismby Antonios Vadolas

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 37.99

    Contemporary versions of evil demonise modern "fascists", "totalitarian threats", and "Hitlers". As if not obscure enough, fascist evil has been equivocally linked with perversion. This book reveals that both fascism and perversion implicate the non-symbolisable kernel in politics, which becomes the source of their mystification. It argues that the... more...

  • Psychoanalytic Practice and State Regulationby Ian Parker; Simona Revelli

    Karnac Books 2008; US$ 25.99

    'This book arises out of an important international conference held in March 2006 to discuss how regulation by the state has affected psychoanalysis as a clinical discipline in many different parts of the world. There were participants and papers from Europe and beyond: from Africa; from both North and South America; from Asia; and, of course, from... more...

  • Passion for the Human Subjectby Bernard Penot

    Karnac Books 2008; US$ 26.99

    Each one of us has to be born "inter urinas et faeces", as St. Augustine so strikingly put it. More recently, Freud's 1915 discovery of 'instincts' - that is, 'drives' - and their 'viscitudes' leads us further to envision a human subjectivity that would have nothing mataphysical about it. The baby's "feeling of himself" first arises in the midst of... more...

  • Clinical and Theoretical Aspects of Perversionby Juan Pablo Jimenez; Rodolfo Moguillansky

    Karnac Books 2011; US$ 28.99

    'Perversion is a challenge for theory and psychoanalytic practice that Juan Pablo Jimenez and Rodolfo Moguillansky, American psychoanalysts known for the originality of their contributions, have managed successfully. In this book they offer us vivid and detailed clinical material of patients of analysis who presented various kinds of perversions, which... more...

  • The Search for the Selfby Heinz Kohut; Paul Ornstein

    Karnac Books 2011; US$ 35.99

    'The re-issuing of the four volumes of Heinz Kohut's writings is a major publishing event for psychoanalysts who are interested in both the theoretical and the therapeutic aspects of psychoanalysis. These volumes contain Kohut's pre-self psychology essays as well as those he wrote in order to continue to expand on his groundbreaking ideas, which he... more...

  • The Wolf-Man and Sigmund Freudby Muriel Gardiner

    Karnac Books 1972; US$ 48.99

    It is a well known that the Wolf-Man was the subject of what James Strachey described as 'the most elaborate and no doubt the most important of all Freud's case histories'. It is less well known that he was still living in Vienna more than half a century since his analysis with Freud.In this remarkable biographical account, the Wolf-Man comes alive... more...
