Private Self by Arnold H. Modell
Book DescriptionIn "The Private Self", Arnold Modell contributes an interdisciplinary perspective in formulating a theory of the private self. A leading thinker in American psycho-analysis, Modell here studies selfhood by examining variations on the theme of the self in Freud and in the work of object relations theorists, self psychologists, and neuroscientists. Modell contends that the self is fundamentally paradoxical, in that it is at once dependent upon social affirmation and autonomous in generating itself from within. We create ourselves, he suggests, by selecting values that are endowed with private meanings. By thinking of the unconscious as a neurophysiological process, and the self as the subject and object of its own experience, Modell is able to explain how identity can persist in the flux of consciousness.

This work looks at the fact that there is no theory that explains how psychoanalysis works. It considers Freudian theory, the interpretations of contemporary ego psychology, and the contributions of object theory whilst analyzing the changing significance of the therapeutic process.
