Envy: Ideas in Psychoanalysis
Kate Barrows (au)
Branded as one of the 7 deadly sins, envy is as powerful a force in todayís consumer culture as it has ever been. But envy is not only manufactured by the modern media to encourage spending. It is an emotion inherent in the development of every human being & affects us throughout all stages of life. This concise book surveys the history of this concept in psychoanalytic thinking, from Freudís contentious notion of penis envy to Kleinís equally controversial ideas about the infantís primary envy of the breast. Envy is a great challenge in psychoanalysis, yet it can also exist in a more benign form. And the pangs of this milder type of envy, when coupled with admiration & gratitude, can lead not to distrust & hatred, but to emulation -- & respect.
