“Cordelia Schmidt-Hellerau has given us a work of deep scholarship and original thought. Fully engrossing and forceful in presentation, it is a bold and necessary reworking of Freudian drive theory. Her new formulations will reshape our thinking and our way of listening.”
—Daniel Jacobs, M.D
“This is a sharp, courageous, innovative and highly documented exploration of one of the most problematic, unsolved and disputed areas inside freud’s theory: preservative drives, in between life and death drives.

Cordelia Schmidt-Hellerau develops here a revolutionary approach to the topic, involving an unexpected, substantive metapsychological revision, a subsequent remarkable change of clinical perspective, and a further reconsideration of many cultural assumptions which are connected with this new vision.

A convincing proposal about a theoretical “shibboleth” that played for decades and still plays a divisive role in the psychoanalytic community”

Stefano Bolognini
IPA Past President
