Synopsis

This book provides a comprehensive review of the existing perspectives and applications of narcissism as a psychoanalytic concept that has been extremely influential in the fields of psychotherapy, social science, arts and humanities. Ten authors from different disciplines have been invited to write on the topic of narcissism as it is approached in their specialist field, resulting in an exciting and inclusive overview of contemporary thought on narcissism. This book is also a critical reader. Each author closely examined and analysed the possibilities and limitations of different views on narcissism. It is thus a very useful book both for students and experts who look for a deeper and broader understanding of the notion of 'narcissism' and its various psychotherapeutic, social and cultural applications.

Polona Curk is an independent scholar. She previously worked as an associate research fellow in Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, where she also completed her PhD. She has a background in psychoanalytic studies and works at the intersection of psychoanalysis, feminist philosophy and social theory. Her research examines intimacy and autonomy as two intrinsically linked processes through which the self lives relationally, and theorizes intimate autonomy as connected to continual attentiveness to the issues of dependency and destructiveness. She writes on the topics of attachment, intimacy, power dynamics, ambivalence, autonomy, and ethical responsibility. She has previously worked as a counsellor-volunteer in a non-governmental organization against domestic violence. Anastasios Gaitanidis is a Permanent Visiting Lecturer in Psychoanalytic Studies at Goldsmiths College (University of London), an Associate Lecturer in Social Sciences at the Open University and a Visiting Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the University of Kent. He is also a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist in private practice.
