Abstract

The American Journal of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 61, No. 3, September 2001 (2001) Book Reviews Edited by Jeannine Zoppi, Ph.D. The Unknown Karen Horney—Essays on Gender, Culture and Psychoanalysis, ed- ited by Bernard J. Paris, Yale University Press, 2000, 384 ps. When Robert Motherwell interviewed Joan Miro, he said of the painter, “Miro is a brave man, of dignity and modesty. He has the advantage of liking his origins.... He believes that one’s salvation is one’s own responsibility and follows his own line of grace and felt satisfaction, indifferent to others’ opinions.
