Solitude : a return to the self by Anthony Storr( Book )

37 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 1,916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Solitude was seminal in challenging the established belief that "interpersonal relationships of an intimate kind are the chief, if not the only, source of human happiness." Indeed, most self-help literature still places relationships at the center of human existence. Lucid and lyrical, Storr's book cites numerous examples of brilliant scholars and artists -- from Beethoven and Kant to Anne Sexton and Beatrix Potter -- to demonstrate that solitude ranks alongside relationships in its impact on an individual's well-being and productivity, as well as on society's progress and health. But solitary activity is essential not only for geniuses, says Storr ; the average person, too, is enriched by spending time alone."--Back cover
Music and the mind by Anthony Storr( Book )

57 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does music have such a powerful effect on our minds and bodies? It is the most mysterious and most intangible of all forms of art. Yet, Anthony Storr believes, music today is a deeply significant experience for a greater number of people than ever before. In this challenging book, he explores why this should be so. Music is a succession of tones through time. How can a sequence of sounds both express emotion and evoke it in the listener? Drawing on a wide variety of
Human aggression by Anthony Storr( Book )

128 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in 9 languages and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque los actos de crueldad humana suelen ser atribuidos a instintos atávicos procedentes de anteriores etapas de la evolución biológica, lo cierto es que nuestra especie es la más despiadada de cuantas habitan el planeta: dentro del reino animal, sólo el hombre ha llegado a extremos de conducta que llevan aparejada la destrucción sistemática de miembros de su propia colectividad. ANTHONY STORR, escritor y psiquiatra, estudia las diversas teorías que a partir de Freud han tratado de descubrir las raíces de LA AGRESIVIDAD HUMANA y analiza las formas que ésta adopta durante los sucesivos períodos de desarrollo humano y en los comportamientos neuróticos y psicóticos. «El sano sentido común con que ha sido escrito el libro ­subrayó en su día Konrad Lorenz, una de las autoridades máximas en la materia­ lo hace comprensible para todo el mundo.» A juicio de Storr, la agresividad del hombre es un instinto cuyos efectos pueden ser controlados y encauzados, pero en ningún caso suprimidos
Freud by Anthony Storr( Book )

62 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in 11 languages and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was the founder of psycho-analysis. From a method of treating neurosis in upper-middle-class patients in Vienna, Freud developed a novel way of looking at human nature. His insistence that this method was a science earned him disbelief and hostility from some but the success and originality of his treatment and ideas converted many others to the cause. This book looks at his major theories, evaluating whether they have stood the test of time and in the process examining Freud himself in the light of his own ideas

Feet of clay : saints, sinners, and madmen : a study of gurus by Anthony Storr( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gurus are extraordinary individuals who cast doubt upon current psychiatric distinctions between sanity and madness. Because gurus are charismatic figures who are gifted teachers, they recruit disciples who adopt the guru's vision as their own. The guru convinces others that he knows, a persuasive capacity which can bring illumination but which may end in disaster. Storr demonstrates that most of us harbor irrational beliefs, and he discusses how the human wish for certainty in an insecure world leads to our confusing delusion with truth. Storr reveals how the adoration for the guru can so easily corrupt him and explains why certain gurus become moral parasites while others become spiritual beacons
