MASOCHISM IN MODERN MAN

By Theodor Reik; (translated from the German By Margare H. Beigel & Gertrud M. Kurth)

New York, NY: Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1941. Text/NEW & Bright. Hardcover/VG; strong & sound w/edge rubs & fading to spine. DJ/None. PO name to fEP. Towards understanding masochism. Austrian-born psychoanalyst Theodor Reik (1888 - 1969), one of Freud's first students, and pioneer of lay analysis in the U.S., examines the concept that "man is the an animal which seeks pleasure and avoids pain". He wonders whether man also "finds pleasure in suffering disgrace and humiliation?"; and probes into why some of us, unconsciously, strive for physical & pychic pain, deliberately "accepting sacrifices, shame, humiliation, and disgrace"? 439 pgs, 33 chapters in 8 parts. Reik examines how engagement in self-punishing,or provocative behavior, is used to induce guilt in others, and, thereby, harvest a sense of secret superiority and be rewarded by "victory through defeat" --- not entirely unlike saints & martryrs perceive their temporal sufferings, unbeknowst to most as joyful rewards towards securing eternal happiness.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Vintage/Psychology.

PO name to fEP. A discourse on non-verbal communication. Austrian-born psychoanalyst Theodor Reik (1888 - 1969), one of Freud's first students, and pioneer of lay analysis in the U.S., examines how subtle nuances of interpersonal communication are expressed & perceived at unconscious levels which can only be decipherable by analysts looking inwards and listening with the third ear (term borrowed from Nietzsche). Volume contains numerous clinical examples detailing subtle, influencial clues expressed in the patient’s patterns of behaviors such as dress, peculiarities in gestures, flickering of eyes, and even the warmth, clamminess, roughness or smoothness of the skin conveyed in shaking of the hand ---- all to which we respond to unconsciously yet influences our opinions. Since minute movements speak as powerfully as words, one needs to turn attention inward. 514 pgs, 46 chapters in4 parts: Part I, "I am a Stranger Here Myself"; II, The Workshop; III, Two-Way Street; and IV, The Language of the Soul, followed by "Leave-Taking".
