This book is a personal reappraisal of psychoanalytic theories in the light of clinical experience.
The first part is about sexuality and begins where psychoanalysis began, with hysteria.
The second part is about the ego and the super-ego, the relationship of which dominated Freud's writing from his middle period onwards.
The last part is on narcissism and the narcissistic disorders, a major preoccupation of psychoanalysis in the second half of the twentieth century.
