5 Bettelheim: A Life and a Legacy Sutton, Nina; Sharp, David (translator)
0465006353 / 9780465006359 Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st U.S. edition hardcover with dustjacket 1996 Basic Books. Very clean; never read. REMAINDER MARK at bottom. Shelfwear to jacket edges. Huge: 606 pages; Index, Notes, List of Works, black-and-white photos. Language: English (translated from the French). NOTE: Large size; cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; requires additional international postage. 'In his lifetime (1903-90), Bruno Bettelheim was regarded as an authority on childrearing and a pioneer of psychoanalysis. His prolific writings ranged from his experiences as a survivor of Nazi concentration camps to the Freudian interpretation of fairy tales. During his 29 years as director of the University of Chicago's Orthogenic School, Bettelheim developed a unique form of milieu therapy, claiming a high rate of success with emotionally disturbed and autistic children. After his suicide, former students denounced him as brutal, and critics accused him of plagiarism, questioning his training and qualifications. In this first biography, certain to renew interest in Bettelheim's work, Sutton, a journalist and French correspondent for National Public Radio, assesses the life and work of this contradictory genius. In particular, she is able to explain Bettelheim's flaws in light of his early life in Vienna prior to his arrival in the United States....'--Lucille M. Boone, Library Journal, 1996.

10 Intimacy and Solitude  Dowrick, Stephanie
0393036278 / 9780393036275 Very Good.  
Hardcover. Stated 1st U.S. edition hardcover with dustjacket 1994 W. W. Norton. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; appears unread. Only a hint of shelfwear to jacket. 320 pages; Notes; Bibliography. Language: English. 'Dowrick, a British psychotherapist (and co-founder of the Women's Press in England), examines the complementary roles of intimacy and solitude in this informed and accessible analysis. Basing her theories on the work of such therapists as Alfred Adler, Carl Jung and Roberto Assagioli, she argues that the way in which people experience their sense of self will mirror the way they develop intimate relationships. Through interviews and her own life story, Dowrick discusses how early childhood experiences--experiences that are often different for men and women--determine one's sense of self and eventually one's handling of sexual relationships. In both heterosexual and gay relationships, Dowrick posits, it is important to stop viewing the other as an extension of oneself in order to succeed at intimacy. True solitude, she notes, can develop self-knowledge, which is the key to closeness with others.'--Publishers Weekly, 1994.

14 Melanie Klein: Her World and Her Work Grosskurth, Phyllis
0394513428 / 9780394513423 Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1986 Knopf. Noticeable average reading wear: light edge-crumpling and soiling to jacket. Text very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 515 pages; Index; References; Bibliographies; Chronology; black-and-white photos. Language: English. NOTE: Heavy book-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. 'Extensive research went into this informative and revealing first major biography of Klein, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis, whose theories, although generated from Freud's discoveries of the unconscious, produced considerable controversy in their deviation from Freudian views. Klein is best known for her advocacy of play as a means of reaching a child's unconscious, and for her concepts of projective identification and patient-analyst countertransference. Grosskurth relates Klein's personal conflicts and traumas as a child and mother to the development of her ideas and methods as an analyst. She traces the history of psychoanalysis from Freud to the 1960s as it paralleled Klein's career, and reveals the often vicious and petty debates among British, American and German psychoanalytic societies, focusing on Klein's early support from and, according to the author, eventual betrayal by Ernest Jones; her fierce rivalry with child psychoanalyst Anna Freud; and her tyrannical rule in later years over the British psychoanalytic camp, dubbed Kleinian.'--Publishers Weekly, 1986. Keywords: psychology, psychiatry, biographies.

Multimind: A New Way of Looking at Human Behavior, Ornstein, Robert
15 Multimind: A New Way of Looking at Human Behavior Ornstein, Robert
0385264461 / 9780385264464 Acceptable. 
Paperback. Softcover published 1989 by Anchor. HEAVY WEAR to cover: creased/flared corners. Clean text; erased store prices on 1st blank page. Good for reading/research only. 206 pages, Notes, References. Language: English. 'The author of The Psychology of Consciousness here defines the human mind as a bastard hybrid system. Each of us has many small minds that simultaneously process feelings, fantasies, ideas, fixed routines, interpersonal responses and bodily skills. While Ornstein's multimind theory is more descriptive than explanatory, it offers a welcome alternative to trendy computer models, split-brain theories and Freudianism. Multimind helps explain why our emotions and attitudes are easily swayed, the difficulty of ever really knowing oneself or another person, and how mental shortcuts we rely on to make snap judgments can harden prejudices. Ornstein faults the narrowness of IQ tests by stressing the varied abilities that make up intelligence. He cites studies of hypnosis and multiple personality in support of the view that several minds can coexist in one person. It's worth heeding his axiom, Whatever enters consciousness is greatly overemphasized.' -- Publishers Weekly, 1986. Keywords: intellect, brain, cognitive, psychology.

16 Our Dreaming Mind  Van De Castle, Robert L.
0345396669 / 9780345396662 Acceptable.  
Paperback. Softcover 1995 Ballantine. Text clean and unmarked; pages bright; binding tight. HEAVY WEAR to covers and corners. 576pp. Language: English. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority -- Surface or Airmail only. 'Inspirational imagery revealed in dreams to Muhammad, Gandhi, Descartes, Wagner, Handel, Coleridge, Yeats, Orson Welles, Elias Howe and many others has wrought significant changes in politics, science, art, music, film, literature and religion. Yet dreams have been devalued in Western culture, and one reason for this, suggests Van de Castle, is that Freud's forging of strong links among dreams, neuroses and sex has thwarted a wider exploration of the full meaning of dreams. Former director of the University of Virginia Medical School's Sleep and Dream Laboratory, the author explores the dream theories of Freud, Jung, Montague Ullman, Fritz Perls and others. He surveys the importance of dream imagery in ancient and non-Western cultures and crams in a wealth of information on children's dreams, recurrent dreams, nightmares, gender differences in dreaming and much else. This immensely readable resource is a monumental history of dreams and a practical stimulus for those who want to remember and work with their dreams. Illustrated.'--Publishers Weekly, 1994.
