Review by:
Julia Matthews-Bellinger

Thus we have two kinds of loneliness. One which Frieda Fromm-Reichmann calls ordinary loneliness, a missing of others which is felt as such and thus presupposes the capacity for connectedness. And the other which involves the incapacity for connectedness and thus a missing of others which is so profound that the other, even in its absence, is not even understood or felt as such.

—Elizabeth Hegeman (1959, p. 365)

It is a striking fact that with a few notable exceptions (Winnicott 1958; Fromm-Reichmann 1959; Adler and Buie 1979; Willock, Bohm, and Curtis 2012) the experience of loneliness has not been explored in depth in the psychoanalytic literature.
