PANEL III: HEINZ KOHUT’S PSYCHOLOGY OF NARCISSISM: ITS DEVELOPMENT AND ITS CURRENT RELEVANCE
Chair: David Terman, M.D.
Presenters: James W. Anderson, Ph.D., Elizabeth Lunbeck, Ph.D., Charles B. Strozier, Ph.D.
What stands out about this panel is that the presenters each have engaged intimately with the life and work of Kohut. Charles Strozier, a psychoanalyst and history professor at John Jay College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, wrote the definitive biography of Kohut and co-edited a book with him. Elizabeth Lunbeck, a psychoanalytic research graduate, history professor at Harvard, and award-winning author, wrote The Americanization of Narcissism, a book that explores Kohut’s insistence that there is healthy as well as pathological narcissism. James Anderson, a psychoanalyst, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern, and prolific psychobiographer, is writing a book on Freud, Helene Deutsch, Winnicott, and Kohut.
