"Kohut at his best! Kohut was particularly lively and clear when challenged by questions and when lecturing. The Tolpins have done us a great service in bringing together Kohut's thinking at a time when he was in the midst of some of his most important work. The Chicago Institute Lectures clarify important aspects of Kohut's thinking and allow the reader important new understandings regarding both development of the self and techniques for working with disorders of the self. This is a critical volume in the study of clinical and theoretical aspects of psychoanalysis."
- Bertram J. Cohler, Ph.D., University of Chicago
"Distinguished analysts in their own right, Marian and Paul Tolpin have brought together a series of lectures by Heinz Kohut given to analytic candidates in their last years of formal training. Superbly edited, these lectures provide the reader with a sense of intimate participation in the evolution and development of Kohut's theory, including detailed examples of typical cases and dilemmas in the treatment process. Not for analysts alone but for a wide audience of mental health professionals, Kohut's Chicago Institute Lectures is an invaluable text."
- Miriam Elson, A.M., Emeritus Lecturer, University of ChicagoReseña del editor:
Delivered to advanced candidates at The Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis in 1974-75, The Chicago Institute Lectures reveal a Kohut in transition, a Kohut wrestling with the creative tension in psychoanalysis between tradition and innovation, between continuity and change, even as he worked toward the psychology of the self "in the broad sense" that marked his decisive break from traditional psychoanalytic thought. Lightly edited by the Tolpins to preserve their authenticy, these lectures preserve the voice, the intellectual style, and the pedagogical bearing of a gifted creator in the very midst of creation.
We find here a casual Kohut, thinking through in a relaxed and conversational way the assumptions that would become foundational to mature self psychology. The developmental trajectory of self-selfobject relationships, the role of selfobject failures in different types of psychopathology, the complex relationship between givens and the psychological environment in pathogenesis, the role of conflict in normal development and in psychopathology--these are among the recurrent themes taken up in these lectures. And there are, as well, Kohut's provocative asides on the child-rearing practices of his day, including the contrast between over- and understimulation, the impact of healthy parental sexuality on child development, and the difference between the normal oedipal phase of the self and the Oedipus complex. The clinical viewpoint of mature self psychology is anticipated in many ways, perhaps no more clearly than in Kohut's powerful reassessment of the perversions.
The Chicago Institute Lectures are more than a key historical document in the evolution of psychoanalytic self psychology; they preserve the voice, the intellectual style, and the pedagogical bearing of a gifted creator in the very midst of creation.
