5.0 out of 5 stars Kohut a master of the mind, February 4, 2010
This review is from: The Restoration of the Self (Paperback)
Kohut clarifies his position vis a vis S.Freud's theory and suggest the classical drive and its topographic structures are insufficient and more is needed to understand the complexity of the human mind.
Kohut is a brilliant thinker.His psychoanalytical paradigm redefines the notion of what psychoanalytical progress is all about.Kohut also makes a strong point in demonstrating the fundamental importance of mental readiness before dealing with patients.Prudence,deep empathy,introspection are the fundamental pillars of the Analyst/Analysand relationship...
Compelling and dense the reading can be a mind twister.
I believe Kohut is still one of the most innovative thinker of the 20-21st century in psychoanalysis...

5.0 out of 5 stars Prior Knowledge Required, March 28, 2014
Reader should have read Kohuts prior works; the immediatiately prior work is "The Analysis of the Self".
The serious student should have read his preliminary writings in "The Search for The Self"
and have a good grasp of Object relations and other theories summarized in "Freud and Beyond"

For the basic psychology student there are several introductorary works such as "Self Psychology" by Peter A. Lessem or, for the intermediate student with a knowledge of basic Psychoanalysis, Alan Segals "Heinz Kohut and the Psychology of the Self.
