Description - Harry Stack Sullivan by F. Barton Evans
Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1949) founded the interpersonal theory of psychiatry which focuses on interpersonal relationships and the individual's social and cultural environment, rather than innate drives of the inner world. It can be seen to complement the theories of object relations, self psychology and psychosocial development. A personally difficult man, Sullivan's very important contribution to psychoanalysis, psychology and social science has not so far received the attention it deserves. In this comprehensive reassessment, F. Barton Evans explicates and critiques Sullivan's theory of personality development over the life cycle, his view of psychopathology and his detailed exploration of the psychiatric interview as it relates to interpersonal psychotherapy.
