A first UK edition of Karen Horney's 1942 classic
First UK edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 309pp.
In this book, Dr. Horney discusses the possibilities of self-analysis—to what extent individuals can use the techniques of psychoanalysis on their own to solve problems. She discusses the driving forces in the neuroses, the different stages of psychoanalytic understanding, the patient's and the analyst's share in the psychoanalytic process, occasional and systematic self-analysis, and the realistic expectations of undertaking self-analysis.
The book is in good condition with some tanning and light wear to the cloth binding. The dustwrapper is tatty, rubbed and marked, with loss at the base of the spine. However, it has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
