This volume brings together many of the important writings of Hans Loewald, one of the major theoreticians of psychoanalysis today. Among other subjects, Dr. Loewald discusses the nature of the internalization processes and structure building, the nature the role of reality, pre-oedipal modes of perceiving and the permanence of a “psychotic core” in every personality, the relationship of psychoanalysis to culture, mastery and defense, and the nature of time.

“Loewald belongs securely in the ranks of major psychoanalytic thinkers. . . . [His book] contains memorable contributions to our theoretical and clinical understanding of a broad range of topics, and should be read by anyone interested in human psychology.”—Sydney E. Pulver, M.D., Review of Psychoanalytic Books
“A pleasure to read.”—F. H. G. Balfour, British Journal of Psychiatry

"Publication of Hans Loewald's collected works has been awaited by psychoanalysts and students of the humanities at large, with great anticipation. It is indeed a major event. . . . Reading of [this book] from cover to cover affords insight into the mode of thinking of one of the greatest conceptualizers of human mentation since Freud."?Margaret S. Mahler, M.D.

"This collection of papers by Hans Loewald shares with us his theoretical thinking as it developed from 1949 to 1978. The book reveals the thinking of a mature psychoanalytic theoretician from his forty-third year through his seventy-second year. It is a fascinating, logically consistent, and most worthwhile book."?Norman A. Neiberg, International Journal of Group Planning


"A most stimulating and thought-provoking book. . . . A valuable contribution. The revisions of old concepts lead to new insights. The book deserves the careful attention of the serious students of psychoanalysis."?Kenneth H. Kaplan, Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis
