Volume 17 of Progress is Self Psychology, the final series volume under the editorship of Arnold Goldberg, beautifully balances clinical, theoretical, and cultural concerns in a manner true to the goals of the series. Taken together, Hazel Ipp's richly textured "Case of Gayle" and the commentaries that it elicits (Doctors, Ringstrom, Fisch, Knoblauch) amount to a searching reexamination of narcissistic pathology and the therapeutic process. This illuminating reprise on the clinical phenomenology Kohut associated with "narcissistic personality disorder" accounts for the volume title. The ability of modern self psychology to integrate central concepts from other theories gains expression in Teicholz's proposal for a two-tiered theory of intersubjectivity, in Brownlow's examination of the fear of intimacy, and in Garfield's model for the treatment of psychosis. The social relevance of self psychology comes to the fore in an examination of the experience of adopted children (Siegel and Siegel) and an inquiry into the roots of mystical experience (Rector), both of which concern the ubiquity of the human longing for an idealized parent imago. Among contributions that bring self-psychological ideas to bear on the arts, Frank Lachmann's provocative "Words and Music," which links the history of music to the history of psychoanalytic thought in the quest for universal substrata of psychological experience, deserves special mention. Annette. Lachmann's consideration of empathic failure among the characters in Shakespeare's Othello and Silverstein's reflections on Schubert's self-states and selfobject needs in relation to the specific poems set to music in his lieder round out a collection as richly broad based as the field of self psychology itself.
