With a New Introduction by Jonathan Lear

A reissue of three out-of-print books previously published by Yale University Press:
SUBLIMATION: Inquiries into Theoretical Psychoanalysis (1988) and

From the publisher, upgbooks:
This is a story of love and betrayal. As a young man, Loewald was en route to becoming a philosopher. He had fallen in love with philosophy and, given what we know about transference, there is reason to suspect that the erotic attachment had spread itself out onto his teacher. Heidegger's embrace of Nazism was not simply a personal betrayal--however awful that is--it was the upending of a way of life. For Loewald, there had to be something wrong with philosophy itself if the greatest practitioner of the age could succumb to such hateful distortions.
All of Loewald's work can be seen as a thinking-through of one idea: namely, that the human psyche is itself a psychological achievement. The infant does not enter the world a complete psychological entity; she emerges rather out of a less differentiated field, the infant-mother matrix. By now this is a familiar idea. Perhaps it is too familiar, for it is so easy for us to live amongst cliches that we do not recognize as such. We think we understand something because we have heard the phrase so often.
I am convinced that Loewald will increasingly be recognized as one of the handful of significant psychoanalytic thinkers after Freud.

From the Introduction by Jonathan Lear, The Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago and the Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis, New Haven, Connecticut
