Rubovits-Seitz continues with his own insightful analysis of Kohut's distinctive approach to Freudian theory. And he concludes by arguing persuasively why Kohut's later contributions should best be viewed as a continuation, rather than an abandonment, of

"Students of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic history will find Kohut's Freudian Vision an invaluable resource. Rubovits-Seitz brings a unique background and perspective to the task of presenting the reader with Kohut's previously unpublished lectures on Freudian theory, to which he adds his own personal observations and an analysis of how Kohut thought, lectured, and wrote. The final section of the book, devoted to demonstrating the continuity of Kohut's self psychology with Freudian theory, is most interesting and valuable. Scholarly and stimulating, it will be controversial with both Freudian and self psychologists. And that is what makes this book so good: it demands but also repays careful thought." - Robert J. Leider, M.D., Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis "Philip Rubovits-Seitz and The Analytic Press have done a service to psychoanalysts of all theoretical persuasions-not just those identified with classical Freudian psychoanalysis or self psychology - by compiling and publishing Kohut's pre-self psychology lectures at the Chicago Institute. This book has both contemporary and historical interest: Kohut's exceptionally lucid synopsis of Freud's theory of psychoanalysis deserves to find a place in contemporary psychoanalytic curricula, while Rubovits-Seitz's admirable and thorough-going analysis of the continuity in Kohut's thinking provides an indispensable basis for pondering anew the personal and historical transformations that ultimately led Kohut to personalize his Freudian vision and thereby make his own contribution." - Arnold D. Richards, M.D., JAPA "An important book for those interested in the development of Heinz Kohut's thought and in the intellectual history of psychoanalysis generally. Kohut's Freudian Vision not only reveals the roots of Kohut's writings on self psychology in traditional psychoanalytic psychology; it also presents Kohut's sophisticated, often original, and compelling reading of Freudian theory. As such, Rubovits-Seitz's book presents a vision of psychoanalysis not as static dogma but as complex, contradictory, dynamic, and developing." - Thomas A. Kohut, Ph.D., Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Professor of History, Williams College
