In this pathbreaking philosophical examination of the ethical relevance of psychoanalysis, Ernest Wallwork-a psychoanalyst who is also a professor of ethics-offers a bold reinterpretation of Freudian theory, showing the ways in which it points toward the possibility of genuine moral behavior. Considering psychoanalytic findings and claims about such notions as psychic determinism, the pleasure principle, narcissism, object-love, and defense mechanisms, Wallwork explores their implications for such time-honored issues in ethics as moral responsibility, psychological hedonism, egoism, autonomy, and benevolence.
