Envy. By Harold N. Boris. Northvale, NJ/London: Jason Aronson Inc., 1994. 200 pp.

Review by:
Peggy B. Hutson

Written in the language of Klein and Bion as well as in Boris's own, this book on envy weaves together a psychoanalytic, philosophical, and Darwinian approach to the human condition of envy. It is a book that must be read with a willingness to suspend one's own preconceptions about psychoanalytic writing.

Between 1976 and 1994, Boris published eight of the chapters as papers. In this book, he compiles them and adds two chapters dealing with a natural history of envy and with envy in psychoanalytic practice. He summarizes his attempt to further the understanding of the dynamics of envy and uses this for systematic therapeutic investigation and relief.
