Hysteria has disappeared from contemporary culture only insofar as it has been subjected to a repression through the popular diagnosis of "borderline personality disorder." In Hysteria, the distinguished psychoanalyst Christopher Bollas offers an original and illuminating theory of hysteria that weaves its well-known features -- repressed sexual ideas, indifference to conversion, over-identification with the other -- into the hysteric form.
