The Body Speaks

Book Review: The Body Speaks: Body Image Delusions and Hypochondria By David Rosenfeld. Karnac, 2014.Reviewed by Nathan Szajnberg, MD

Courage comes to mind when reading these case histories. Courage in the sense of the

Loewenberg and Thompson are two scholarly historians and psychoanalysts. After four years of recruiting, writing, editing with 56 contributors from 41 countries and societies, this book could have been a hodge-podge. It isn’t; Loewenberg and Thompson pull it off. Their angle is to grab by the horns Derrida’s derisive bull — that there is practically no “homo psychoanalyticus” in Africa, Asia or the South Seas — and rassle it to the ground by studying the history of psychoanalytic geography, the variations with culture (or consistencies across cultures). And, in this book, they answer Derrida (more…)
