During Freud's life, psychoanalysis grew from a technique based on searching for childhood trauma to a theory of mind that elucidates the nature of reality for each individual. In The Place of Reality in Psychoanalytic Theory and Technique, renowned psycho-analysts from Arlow to Lacan to Renik explore the experience and construction of individual reality as well as examine philosophical issues such as the existence of any reality not configured by the mind. This is a book for clinicians facing their patients' painful distortions of reality as well as for academicians pondering what reality is—and isn't.
