Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 71–72. Reviews the book, On Loving, Hating, and Living Well: The Public Psychoanalytic Lectures of Ralph R. Greenson, M.D. edited by Robert A. Nemiroff, Alan Sugarman, and Alvin Robbins (1992). This collection of 24 public lectures of the late Ralph R. Greenson constitutes Monograph 2 of a series of psychoanalytic publications planned by the Greenson Memorial Library of the San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Monograph 1 was also a memorial to Greenson, a supplement to his now classic handbook, The Technique and Practice of Psychoanalysis (Greenson, 1967). A memorial library and an ongoing monograph series bearing Greenson's name are not gratuitous projects. Greenson is worth remembering. Indeed, the editors have prepared introductions to each lecture that give not only the actual occasion and theme of each lecture but also a commentary on the historical circumstances that inspired Greenson's reflections. Thus, the book can also be read as a chronicle of social history. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
