Being and Not Being: Clinical Applications of the Death Instinct

Synopsis

Cuts through the jargon to give many clear and useful portrayals of work with destructive tendencies in a variety of contexts. Weininger has much to say about adults who seem to stall or lead life in reverse, and the many individuals who feel numb or dead and undo whatever they try to build.

Excerpt

In this book I attempt to unravel some of the mysteries of our early emotional development, in particular, the process whereby some of us get so angry, yet others cannot become angry at all, and the reasons why some of us have such a strong urge to destroy people and things, yet others have such a problem recognizing their own or others' destructive feelings. I believe there is in all of us a balance to destroy and to protect, but in some of us the balance is tilted too far in one direction.
