About this product
- DescriptionClara Thompson was a leading representative of the cultural interpersonal school of psychoanalysis, sometimes kwn as the neo-Freudians that included Karen Horney, Erich Fromm, and Harry Stack Sullivan. Although psychoanalytic sectarianism once meant that classical analysts in the middle of the twentieth century viewed the neo-Freudians with the greatest suspicion and mistrust, they can be seen today for the invative group of thinkers they were. Thompson's Psychoanalysis: Evolution and Development, first published in 1950, remains an ermously fair-minded discussion of the history of psychoanalytic theory and therapy. Written before the growth of Freud biographical studies, her historical reading of Freud's school still remains authoritative.
- Author BiographyClara Thompson (1893-1958) was a founder with Erich Fromm and Karen Horney of the American Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. Later she joined Fromm in creating the New York branch of the William Alanson White Psychiatric Foundation. Paul Roazen is professor emeritus of social and political science at York University in Toronto. He is the author of The Historiography of Psychoanalysis, Freud: Political and Social Thought, Helen Deutsch: A Psychoanalysts Life, Encountering Freud, and Brother Animal: The Story of Freud and Tausk.
