'The re-issuing of the four volumes of Heinz Kohut's writings is a
major publishing event for psychoanalysts who are interested in
both the theoretical and the therapeutic aspects of psychoanalysis.
These volumes contain Kohut's pre-self psychology essays as well as
those he wrote in order to continue to expand on his groundbreaking
ideas, which he presented in The Analysis of the Self; the
Restoration of the Self; and in How Does Analysis Cure?These
volumes of The Search for the Self permit the reader to understand
not only the above three basic texts of psychoanalytic self
psychology more profoundly, but also to appreciate Kohut's
sustained openness to further changes - to dare to present his self
psychology as in continued flux, influenced by newly emerging
empirical data of actual clinical practice.The current re-issue of
the four volumes of The Search for the Self would assure that the
younger generation of psychoanalysts would be exposed to a clinical
theory that could contribute greatly to solving the therapeutic
dilemmas facing psychoanalysis today'- Paul Ornstein, EditorVolumes
1 and 2 of The Search for the Self encompass Heinz Kohut's selected
writings and letters from 1950 to 1978. Volumes 3 and 4 continue
with the further collection of his selected writings and letters
(published as well as previously unpublished) from 1978 until his
untimely death in 1981.
