Goldberg uses the questions posed by self psychology as point of entry to a thoughtful consideration of issues with which every clinician wrestles: the scientific status analysis, the relationships among its competing theories, the role of empathy in analytic method, and the place of the “self” in the analyst’s explanatory strategies. Clinical chapters show how the notion of the self can provide organizing insights into little-appreciated character structures.
