On the Early Development of Mind by Edward Glover coversa period of thirty years in which he gathered togetherand annotated his various contributions to this mostobscure of all psychoanalytical themes. He approachesmind from various angles, in particular the vicissitudesof the libido, of ego-formation, and of the emotions. Thework is offered in chronological order and with unabashedchanges to enhance readability.His clinical studies are orientated from the sameangles and he deals, inter alia, with the developmentalaspects of normal and disordered character, alcoholism,drug addiction, perversions, obsessional neuroses, andpsychoses. Of out standing significance are his papers onthe psychoanalytical classification of mental disorders, onthe nature of reality sense, and on the ‘functional’ aspectsof the mental apparatus.Glover was well aware of the dangers of uncontrolled,abstract theorizing, and several of his later essays exhibitan unflinching resolution to apply the strictest scientific standards not only in the regulation of research andthe control of technique, but also in the teaching andthe training of psychoanalysts. The book represents aremarkable achievement indispensable to the psychoanalyticalstudent, the psychiatrist, and all who wishto ground themselves in the principles and history ofpsychoanalysis.
