Review by:
Steven T. Levy

This collection of Ralph Greenson's public lectures provides our generation of analysts and other interested readers with exposure to one of the most passionate and eloquent spokespersons for psychoanalysis. The book contains twenty-four lectures delivered by Greenson to lay audiences between the years 1955 and 1978. In addition, there is a brief biography of Greenson by the editors. Each lecture is preceded by an introduction indicating the place of the lecture in Greenson's life and work and in the cultural and social milieu in which it was delivered.

The chief value of this book lies in its providing an opportunity to experience the communicative power and conviction of one of our great clinical psychoanalysts and teachers. Greenson was a man who never failed to have a profound influence on those around him. He contributed to our analytic community as a theoretician, as a teacher, and as a clinician. Here, we have an opportunity to hear Greenson speaking to lay audiences about how psychoanalytic understanding illuminates what we know about people, relationships, culture, and many other important areas of human interest.
