Review by:
Josée Violette

After a long series of books by this author, several of them devoted to drug addiction and the treatment of subjects not conforming to the classical definitions of neurosis or psychosis but suffering from profound disorders of mental functioning and the internal economy, PUF have now published a collection of Bergeret's most important papers from the period 1980 to 1993. Associated with original texts and contributions to a variety of colloquia and congresses, they are organised to form a whole in which the development of the author's thought and hypotheses can be followed.

The book is divided into three parts, whose titles may be translated respectively as ‘Narcissism, the Oedipus complex and violence’, ‘Metapsychology examined’ and ‘The development of Freud's thought’.

Based on his wide-ranging clinical experience with a population of patients whose problems seemed inconsistent with Freud's theory of the neuroses, the author's research led him to put forward some hypotheses whereby the relevant mechanisms could be more readily explained.
