This volume of writings by the distinguished psychoanalyst Karen Horney completes the publication of her unpublished and uncollected work.
It includes pieces on feminine psychology and the relations between the sexes as well as on other aspects of psychoanalytic theory. The editor's introductions set these works in context, showing their ificance for Horney's thought and their relation to her other writings. The material in Part 1 provides an important supplement to Feminine Psychology, the book that established Horney as the first great psychoanalytic feminist.
It reveals aspects of Horney's early thought not fully developed elsewhere, along with the views about feminine psychology and the relations between the sexes that reflect her later thinking. Part 2 deepens our understanding of the final two phases of Karen Horney's thought-her break with Freud and proposal of a new psychoanalytic paradigm in the s, and her mature theory, developed in the s.
In presenting eighteen ly unpublished pieces, four essays that have not been available in English, and other texts that have been difficult to locate, this collection makes accessible an important segment of Horney's work. Try logging in through your institution for access.

She founded the American Institute for Psychoanalysis The final version, in which I have made a few editorial changes, is by Marian Price. It was originally translated by Andrea Dlaska and was then revised by Christa Zorn. The final version of the translation is by Marian Price. In some cases, I have incorporated material that was originally in footnotes into the text. We have no record of Internal evidence indicates that the lectures were delivered to an audience consisting largely of gynecologists.
The lectures cover It is a remarkable statement for its time and helps to explain why Horney stopped focusing on feminine psychology. The version presented here has been more highly edited.
There are two versions of this lecture. Both versions were printed by the Auxiliary Council—the lay arm of the AAP, founded inwhich was the umbrella organization for the American Institute for Psychoanalysis, the American Journal of Psychoanalysisand later the Karen Horney Clinic. The Auxiliary Council made copies of this and other lectures by Horney and her based on chapters As I observed in the introduction to Part 1, the topic of the lecture is one to which Horney returned many times.
Horney was in great demand as a speaker, and she gave many talks to both professional associations and lay groups. This talk was probably not delivered at a meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis, because summaries of talks that Horney gave to the association were usually published in the American Journal of Psychoanalysis.
I assume that the talk was given after the publication of Our Inner Conflictsfor it draws on the conceptual scheme developed in that book. The typescript consists of an elaborate set of notes for fourteen lectures that Horney gave in her course on this topic at the New School for Social Research in and Lunt, then head of W. Whereas the items in Part 1 can be grouped into those focused on feminine psychology and those dealing with the relations between the sexes, the material in Part 2 is more miscellaneous.

It is, at the same time, more of a piece, because it represents Karen Horney speaking in her distinctive voice and developing her own theory. This essay was the first fruit of the course on culture and neurosis that Horney taught at the New School for Social Research, beginning in September It was published in Aprilin the American Sociological Review 1: 5.
At the invitation of W. Norton, Horney developed the ideas in her course into her first book, The Neurotic Personality of Our Timeof which this essay is a precursor. Internal evidence indicates that it was given to an audience of progressive educators. I have included the abstract that preceded the talk, which may have been intended for a printed program, because it contains material not contained in the talk and presents its thesis with greater clarity.
The typescript appears to be an unrevised draft, and I have edited it for usage, It appears to be a talk Horney gave to a lay audience. It was probably written inwhile Horney was working on New Ways in Psychoanalysis. Many of the ideas in the talk are more fully developed in that book; but as I have said in the introduction, the talk conveys a much more appreciative attitude toward Freud.
It is therefore an important corrective to the prevailing view of Horney as unremittingly hostile to the master.
Contribution to psychology
I have edited the text for usage, succinctness, This essay appeared in the American Journal of Sociology 45 : It seems to have been written after New Ways in Psychoanalysis and to contain some further thoughts on issues discussed there, particularly the question of whether it is possible to define neurosis independently of culture, in a nonrelativistic way.
