Self-analysis by Karen Horney( Book )

150 editions published between 1942 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows how and to what extent the individual can psychoanalyze himself. More and more, people are turning to psychoanalysis not because they suffer from depressions, phobias, or comparable disorders but because they feel that factors within themselves are holding them back or injuring their relationships with others. Professional analytical help, however, cannot possibly reach everyone whom it is capable of benefiting, and it is for this reason that the question of self-analysis becomes important. To offer the discoveries of psychoanalysis to the individual, for use in dealing with his own problems, Dr. Horney has written this book. The endeavor to "know oneself" can be greatly assisted by the discoveries of psychoanalysis. Constructive self-analysis gives the individual a chance for general character development and for self-realization--not only by utilizing special gifts that may have been inhibited before, but also, even more important, by developing his potentialities as a strong and integrated human being, free from crippling compulsions. Dr. Horney discusses the driving forces in the neuroses, the different stages of psychoanalytical understanding, the patient's and the analyst's share in the psychoanalytic process, occasional and systematic self-analysis, and the limitations and difficulties involved in undertaking self-analysis. Dr. Horney's two previous books on the neuroses offered new viewpoints, interpreted with a directness and freshness that won them a large public. In Self-Analysis she not only helps the individual solve his personal problems but in doing so helps clarify some of the frictions and misunderstandings, the hates, fears, hurts and vulnerabilities which cause the present ills of the world.--From dust jacket

Feminine psychology : [papers] by Karen Horney( Book )

128 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 2,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because the role of woman as a contributing member of society comes increasingly under scrutiny, Karen Horney's thoughts and theories about feminine psychology are particularly relevant to our day. In this new collection of papers, many previously unavailable in English, Karen Horney brings to the subject of femininity both profound knowledge of women and dedicated skill as a therapist. As a psychoanalytic pioneer who trained at the Berlin Psychoanalytic Institute in the 1920's, Dr. Horney began to question certain of Freud's theories, especially his libido theory, which her own careful clinical observations seems to contradict. At the same time her reading in anthropology strengthened her feeling that an organism's behavior is determined culturally as well as biologically. A male-oriented, materialistic society, such as the one into which Freud was born, would evolve theories of separate male and female psychologies. In such a society a woman's outlook on life would appear to be determined by her envy of the male sex organ. According to Dr. Horney, what woman really envies are masculine attributes and the opportunities society offers more readily to men. In this book her discussion of such subjects as frigidity, the problem of monogamy, maternal conflicts, feminine masochism, and the neurotic need for love offers valuable insights into the problems confronting women today - the problesm taht they bring to psychiatrists, marriage counselors, and clergymen."--Publisher's description
