Using 'Freud's Project for a scientific psychology' as a starting point, this book is a brilliant new approach that combines psychoanalytical research with neuroscience. Its aim is to to delineate a new psychological framework for mental health practitioners. The author throws light on the slow pace of brain development during childhood, grapples with both the question of evolutionary factors, and the infant's sensitivity and predisposition to build relationships within his environment. The book also broadens and highlights two key topics topics; the origin of language and the importance of introjective-projective modulation in verbal communication.
