Greed: Developmental, Cultural, and Clinical Realms

Greed: Developmental, Cultural, and Clinical Realms by Salman Akhtar
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1782202552 | 264 pages | PDF | 0,7 MB

Though references to it are scattered in the writings of Klein and Winnicott, the topic of greed has drawn meager attention from contemporary psychoanalysts. This book fills that lacuna. Noting that the inconsolable, relentless, and coercive dimensions of such hunger have profoundly destructive impact upon the self and its objects, Greed: Developmental, Cultural, and Clinical Realms sheds light on the emotion's myriad manifestations as well as its camouflage by the ego's defensive operations. Issues of childhood deprivation, adolescent novelty-seeking, and clinging to the object-world toward the end of life are examined. The avarice that prevails in today's business world is discussed, as is the deleterious impact of greed upon marital relations. More to the clinician's interest, the book highlights the various ways in which greed makes its appearance during treatment, taking into account the tabooed topic of the analyst's own greed for money, prestige, and intellectual prowess.
