Routledge, Apr 19, 2018 - Psychology - 254 pages
This book is concerned with the primitive edge of human experience. It explores the idea that human experience is the product of the dialectical interplay of three modes of generating experience: the depressive, the paranoid-schizoid, and the autistic-contiguous.
