From the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, comes this fascinating introduction to his theories of narcissism.

First published in 1914, On Narcissism introduces Sigmund Freud's work surrounding the psychological symptoms and treatment of narcissism. In this work, Freud explores his theories and argues narcissism's relevance to sexual development.

What is now known as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a mental condition that often affects one's ability to empathise and maintain healthy, balanced relationships. This compact volume is one of Freud's earliest works and contains a wealth of influential information. Examining Carl Jung's theory of non-sexual 'libido' and Alfred Adler's 'masculine protest' concept, Freud offers narcissism as an alternative explanation.

Republished by Read & Co. Great Essays, On Narcissism: An Introduction is not to be missed by those interested in books on psychoanalysis or collectors of Sigmund Freud's work.
