Review by:
Thomas C. Caramagno, Ph.D.

One of Britain's foremost psychiatrists, and author of nine books (including Human Destructiveness), Anthony Storr here collects 14 previously published essays loosely organized around questions of psychoanalysis and creativity. He begins by focusing on four men, Churchill, Kafka, Newton, and C.P. Snow, deftly weaving psychoanalytic insight into their personalities, life events, and achievements with an honest respect for what psychoanalysis cannot make meaningful—the impenetrable depths of the human psyche and the existential facts of biochemically driven depressions. Thus, Storr avoids the common pitfall of bad psychobiographies that allow theory “to outrun discretion” in its headlong pursuit of formalized truth.

The result is an admirable blend of subject and author, for we are as much impressed by the intricate characters we read about as by the seasoned wisdom of Storr himself. Here is a clinician with a breadth of experience that enriches his psychoanalytic insights.
