RARE The Origins of Love and Hate by Ian D Suttie MD with an introduction by Ashley Montagu, 1952
The Origins of Love and Hate has long had an underground reputation within psychoanalysis. It is one of the most passionate arguments for a therapeutic practice based on the physician's love for the deeply deprived patient. It also advocated a view of human nature congruent with the findings of modern biology - a more optimistic vision than that of traditional Freudian psychology. The book is a powerful and early critique of the dual instinct theory of psychoanalysis - Eros and Thantos.
