Sex Versus Survival

Published on 20 November 2014

 

 

 

 

This is the first fully accessible biography on the life and achievements of Sabina Spielrein, one of the most significant and overlooked figures in the field of psychology 

Sabina Spielrein is better known for her affair with Carl Jung dramatised in the film a Dangerous Method starring Keira Knightley, yet she overcame abuse to become an original thinker in the fields of sexual and child psychoanalysis. 

Spielrein's avant-garde ideas about the death instinct and the survival of the individual were dismissed by sexist critics during her life time but they herald recent developments in psychology and evolutionary biology. Sex Versus Survival is a landmark in the rediscovery of an extraordinary thinker.
