Editorial Reviews

Review

In my judgment, the authors have made a strong case for the proposition that the structure of a theorist's metapsychology will duplicate the structure of his subjective world, laid down mainly by the critical formative events of his life. It is a praiseworthy accomplishment. They have done much to clear the air of metapsychological clouds. They have shown new possibilities for psychoanalysis as a strictly clinical theory. All of these steps bring psychoanalytic thought closer to its observational base, closer also to the humanitarian impulse that underlies the helping professions. (Robert W. White, Ph.D. The Psychoanalytic Review)

Faces in a Cloud shows more clearly than anything else I have read the futility of the factionalism that pervades the field of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. (Michael F. Basch, M.D. The Psychoanalytic Review)

This is an important work, both for the psychology of personality and for psychoanalytic theory. The authors establish a broad, 'decentered' perspective . . . whose purpose is to integrate various theories of personality by acknowledging their inevitable subjectivity, and then using that subjectivity to demarcate the limits of each theory. They provide fascinating psychobiographical case studies of Freud, Jung, Reich, and Rank, in which they demonstrate the relation between the internal world of each author and the major preoccupations and motivational principles of each theory. They convincingly argue that the broad metapsychological abstractions in each theory are defensive or reparative reifications of the internal psychodynamics of each theorist. This book raises important issues and questions for readers at all levels. (Stephen A. Mitchell, Ph.D. Library Journal)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Atwood and Stolorow clearly connect the metapsychology of Freud, Jung, Rank, and Reich with the most significant and formative experiences of their lives. Their internal worlds reveal themselves ultimately in the theories each man eventually authors. I found reading of these men's early childhood experiences poignant and illuminating, and I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the study of personality theory.

... rather than just a strictly clinical instrument. A nice examination of different psychotherapeutic orientations through the biographies of their founding fathers.

This book is one of fascinating insights for every therapist. Although readers will be interested in the way that the some significant psychological and psychoanalytic theories were formed, the great value in this book is the way that we can understand that any of our tightly-held theories are less rational constructs than reactions to how we therapists organise our experience to manage our fragile selves.

Recommended.
