Freud by Anthony Storr( )

67 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was the founder of psycho-analysis. From a method of treating neurosis in upper-middle-class patients in Vienna, Freud developed a novel way of looking at human nature. His insistence that this method was a science earned him disbelief and hostility from some but the success and originality of his treatment and ideas converted many others to the cause. This book looks at his major theories, evaluating whether they have stood the test of time and in the process examining Freud himself in the light of his own ideas
Solitude : a return to the self by Anthony Storr( Book )

45 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and Korean and held by 1,913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Solitude was seminal in challenging the established belief that "interpersonal relationships of an intimate kind are the chief, if not the only, source of human happiness." Indeed, most self-help literature still places relationships at the center of human existence. Lucid and lyrical, Storr's book cites numerous examples of brilliant scholars and artists -- from Beethoven and Kant to Anne Sexton and Beatrix Potter -- to demonstrate that solitude ranks alongside relationships in its impact on an individual's well-being and productivity, as well as on society's progress and health. But solitary activity is essential not only for geniuses, says Storr ; the average person, too, is enriched by spending time alone."--Back cover

Human aggression by Anthony Storr( Book )

130 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in 9 languages and held by 1,717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque los actos de crueldad humana suelen ser atribuidos a instintos atávicos procedentes de anteriores etapas de la evolución biológica, lo cierto es que nuestra especie es la más despiadada de cuantas habitan el planeta: dentro del reino animal, sólo el hombre ha llegado a extremos de conducta que llevan aparejada la destrucción sistemática de miembros de su propia colectividad. ANTHONY STORR, escritor y psiquiatra, estudia las diversas teorías que a partir de Freud han tratado de descubrir las raíces de LA AGRESIVIDAD HUMANA y analiza las formas que ésta adopta durante los sucesivos períodos de desarrollo humano y en los comportamientos neuróticos y psicóticos. «El sano sentido común con que ha sido escrito el libro ­subrayó en su día Konrad Lorenz, una de las autoridades máximas en la materia­ lo hace comprensible para todo el mundo.» A juicio de Storr, la agresividad del hombre es un instinto cuyos efectos pueden ser controlados y encauzados, pero en ningún caso suprimidos
Music and the mind by Anthony Storr( Book )

54 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does music have such a powerful effect on our minds and bodies? It is the most mysterious and most intangible of all forms of art. Yet, Anthony Storr believes, music today is a deeply significant experience for a greater number of people than ever before. In this challenging book, he explores why this should be so. Music is a succession of tones through time. How can a sequence of sounds both express emotion and evoke it in the listener? Drawing on a wide variety of

Feet of clay : saints, sinners, and madmen : a study of gurus by Anthony Storr( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his classic work, Solitude, internationally acclaimed author and psychiatrist Anthony Storr probed our basic and often unmet need for solitude, especially emphasizing its relation to creativity. In Music and the Mind, Storr explored the fundamental human need for music, demonstrating its ability to reunite the mind and body. Now, in Feet of Clay, Storr again provides a fresh perspective into one of the most potentially dangerous human needs, the need for certitude. In vivid portraits of some of history's most intriguing gurus, from David Koresh to Freud and Jung to Jesus, Storr examines why we are so enthralled with certain dogmatic figures who play on our need for certainty

Feet of clay : a study of gurus by Anthony Storr( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are said to be at least six hundred New Religious Movements in Britain, and many more in other parts of the world. They range from benign, charitable organizations to corrupt, dangerous cults which may end in murder or mass suicide. Since cults have a special appeal to the young, anxious parents have prompted a good deal of research into who joins cults and why. Less has been written about the gurus who institute and lead such movements." "Gurus are extraordinary individuals who cast doubt upon current psychiatric distinctions between sanity and madness. A guru convinces others that he knows - a persuasive capacity which can bring illumination but which may also end in disaster. Anthony Storr's new book is a study of some of the best-known gurus, ranging from monsters such as Jim Jones or David Koresh, to some of the most respected leaders in the western world - Ignatius of Loyola, Jesus himself. It includes both Freud and Jung because, as Storr demonstrates, what ostensibly began as a scientific investigation became, in each case, a secular path to salvation." "Storr shows, with characteristic and humane insight, how all of these have more in common than meets the eye. Why do we classify some of them as legitimate thinkers or spiritual leaders and others as madmen? Storr shows how the apparently mad and the apparently sane are not different in kind but simply appear in different parts of the spectrum of sanity, how behaviour which is regarded as normal and that which is thought eccentric, dangerous or mad are really two sides of the same coin."--BOOK JACKET
