Beyond psychology by Otto Rank( Book )

30 editions published between 1941 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A plea for the acceptance of the irrational element in man is the most vital part of human life. Rank discusses the ultimates - psychological concepts which go beyond the individual's makeup, such as fear of death, desire for immortality, sexuality, and the need for love - and the institutions which support these concepts

Art and artist; creative urge and personality development by Otto Rank( Book )

37 editions published between 1932 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with Adler and Jung, Otto Rank was one of the intellectual giants in the inner circle around Sigmund Freud. Art and Artist, his major statement on the relationship of art to the individual and society, pursues in a broader cultural context Freud's ideas on art and neurosis and has had an important influence on many twentieth-century writers and thinkers, beginning with Henry Miller and Anais Nin. Art and Artist explores the human urge to create in all its complex aspects, in terms not only of individual works of art but of religion, mythology, and social institutions as well. Based firmly on Rank's knowledge of psychology and psychoanalysis, it ranges widely through anthropology and cultural history, reaching beyond psychology to a broad understanding of human nature
The double; a psychoanalytic study by Otto Rank( Book )

24 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alive, fresh, and stimulating, the theme of The Double comprises the issues of identity, narcissism, and the fear of death--actually the core of human existence. Rank's book is primarily a study of the double as it appeared in striking examples in German, French, Russian, English, and American literature from Goethe to Oscar Wilde

Will therapy and Truth and reality by Otto Rank( Book )

21 editions published between 1945 and 1972 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychology and the soul. Seelenglaube und Psychologie by Otto Rank( Book )

26 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his last years, Otto Rank turned his lifetime of thought and learning toward two of the most difficult topics in human history: religion and the soul. The result was this now-classic work, available in this new, very accessible English translation. Unlike many other intellectuals of the twentieth century, Rank maintains a place for the soul rather than dismissing it as a fantasy. The soul and the beliefs about it, he argues, set forth the foundation for psychology, with its complex analyses of consciousness, self-consciousness, and personality. Rank's commentary is not limited to beliefs about individual souls but includes ideas about group souls, sometimes encompassing nations or generations. Rank suggests that it is in expression of group beliefs that the idea of the soul attains its greatest power
The incest theme in literature and legend : fundamentals of a psychology of literary creation by Otto Rank( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The myth of the birth of the hero : a psychological interpretation of mythology by Otto Rank( Book )

30 editions published between 1914 and 2013 in English and German and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The prominent civilized nations, such as the Babylonians, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Hindoos, the inhabitants of Iran and of Persia, the Greeks and the Romans as well as the Teutons and others, all began at an early stage to glorify their heroes, mythical princes and kings, founders of religions, dynasties, empires or cities, in brief their national heroes, in a number of poetic tales and legends. The history of the birth and of the early life of these personalities came to be especially invested with fantastic features, which in different nations even though widely separated by space and entirely independent of each other present a baffling similarity, or in part a literal correspondence. Many investigators have long been impressed with this fact, and one of the chief problems of mythical research still consists in the elucidation of the reason for the extensive analogies in the fundamental outlines of mythical tales, which are rendered still more enigmatical by the unanimity in certain details, and their reappearance in most of the mythical groupings. In this book, we shall first take up the legendary material on which such a psychological interpretation is to be attempted for the first time on a large scale; selecting from the mass of these chiefly biographical hero myths those which are the best known, and some which are especially characteristic. These myths will be given in abbreviated form as far as relevant for this investigation, with statements concerning the provenance. Attention will be called to the most important, constantly recurrent motives by a difference in print"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
Sex in psychoanalysis by Sándor Ferenczi( Book )

61 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an opportunity for practicing analysts to see the development of analytic technique and the special angles of two of its most successful practitioners. The book was written in the summer of 1922, somewhat modified and altered by the events of the International Psycho-analytical Congress, held in Berlin in September of that year, and completed in 1923. The authors apologize for some of the deficiencies of structure on account of this history of its origin. The critical part of the work was originally written by Dr. Ferenczi, the didactic chapter "The Analytical Situation" by Dr. Rank and the work then jointly revised. As will be seen from the above, the book is intended primarily for practicing analysts and will appeal only to serious students of psycho-analysis.

A psychology of difference : the American lectures by Otto Rank( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once a leading disciple and confidant of Freud, Otto Rank parted company with the psychoanalytic community in the 1920s as his writings began focusing more on the cure of neuroses rather than on the seemingly interminable process of fostering a patient's in-depth understanding of them. A commitment to a more result-oriented form of psychoanalysis led to his publication of The Trauma of Birth (1924), in which Rank moves beyond the Oedipal complex to locate the strongest causes for repression in the child's love and fear of the mother. In this volume of Rank's lectures, Robert Kramer has brought together for the first time the innovator's clearest explanations of his most influential theories. The lectures were delivered in English to receptive audiences of social workers, therapists, and clinical psychologists throughout the United States from 1924 to 1938, the year before his untimely death. Revealing Rank's intellectual development during this period, they treat such topics as projection and identification, love and will, neurosis as a failure in creativity, and object-relations theory. Rank, who was a practicing psychotherapist for part of his career, found that scientific research into the Oedipal complex and therapeutic improvement did not coincide. Preoccupation with the Oedipal complex tended to trap the individual in a tragically powerless state. By tracing repression to the failure to accept birth, the reluctance to let go of the mother, Rank discovered a useful way to help the patient accept his or her own difference within relationships and thereby discover the creativity to change
