Description

This book has been written for a broad audience. It is addressed to anyone who is at all concerned with a scientific grounding for the art of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and for the understanding of the human mind and its outputs via emotionally charged communication. The book begins by establishing the need for a formal science of psychoanalysis and then presents the distinctive features of the communicative approach that moved it towards the creation of that science.
