About the Author

Morris N. Eagle, PhD, ABPP, is Distinguished Educator in Residence at California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks, California, and Professor Emeritus at the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University, Garden City, New York. His publications include the books From Classical to Contemporary Psychoanalysis: A Critique and Integration, Recent Developments in Psychoanalysis: A Critical Evaluation, and The Interface of Psychoanalysis and Psychology (coedited with James W. Barron and David L. Wolitzky). He is also the author of more than 100 journal articles and 100 presentations. Dr. Eagle is a past president of the Division of Psychoanalysis (Division 39) of the American Psychological Association, a recipient of the Sigourney Award for distinguished contributions to the field of psychoanalysis, and cofounder, along with Everett Waters and Gary Cox-Steiner, of the New York Attachment Consortium.


"This is the best and most systematic integration to date of these two bodies of theory, research, and clinical wisdom. Eagle is a foremost commentator on the evolution of psychoanalytic thinking. In this book, he provides a very welcome, mature, balanced, and fruitful bringing together of two traditions that have been separated for too long."--Peter Fonagy, OBE, FMedSci, FBA, PhD, Professor of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Developmental Science and Head, Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, United Kingdom

"Eagle has the rare combination of a scientist's mind and a clinician's heart. His exceptionally lucid exploration of commonalities, disparities, and unresolved questions between the literatures on psychoanalysis and attachment is a 'must read.' This is an ideal text for advanced students in clinical training. It also deserves the attention of practicing therapists, empirical investigators, and anyone interested in individual psychology, sexuality, aggression, security, and the mitigation of suffering."--Nancy McWilliams, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

"Eagle, one of the foremost scholars in both psychoanalysis and attachment theory, has given us a wonderful gift. In this cogent, original account, he unravels the intricate relationship between these influential theories and brings their history and complexity to life in a most accessible way. Eagle integrates recent advances in developmental study and neuroscience and breaks important new ground in examining the relationships among attachment, sexuality, and aggression. His remarkably broad, deep knowledge and rich clinical wisdom leap off every page."--Arietta Slade, PhD, Professor of Clinical and Developmental Psychology, The City University of New York; Visiting Research Scientist, Yale Child Study Center
