Book Review: Passions, persons, psychotherapy: the selected works of Andrew Samuels

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


This brilliant retrospective collection goes back nearly 20 years and includes all the subjects that became the hallmark of Andrew Samuels's work: family and gender in the twenty-first century, the boundary between the political and the psychological, the social role of the therapist, the question of morality in a pluralist society, politics and rebellion, the psychology of the capitalist system, and the vexed question of Jung's anti-Semitism.
