Cruelty of Depression: On Melancholy
Jacques Hassoun (au); David Jacobson (tr); Michael Vincent Miller (fr). Melancholy (or depression), continues to occupy a cental place in psychoanalytic theory. Hassoun offers here a far-reaching treatise on the true nature & origins of depression, arguing that it is a matter of temperament, not a disease to be cured by Prozac or other drugs. Depression & all addictions are rooted in the same experience: a disruption in the weaning of the child from the mother that results in a profound sadness & an inability to experience loss. This disruption affects every aspect of the melancholiacís life, & is at the core of his damaged existence. Depression may be cured only by understanding the roots of the malady in early childhood.
