Why do so many people have problems with love and intimacy? Why do some parents scapegoat their children? What is Parental Alienation Syndrome? What is the MMPI? Why must we grieve loss? Are the years in psychoanalytic psychotherapy worth it? What is a psychotherapy session like? After thirty years of theoretical formulations, the author pulls it all together in this comprehensive model of love relations by integrating evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis, cognitive and social psychology. This theoretical model lets readers see why relationships can be so irrational.

Written in 1954 and revised in 1962, "Mental Illness and Psychology" delineates the shift that occurred in Foucault's thought during this period. Part I reflects Foucault's early interest in Freud and the psychoanalytic tradition. Respectful of Freud, Foucault is still contending with Freud's influence. Part II, rewritten in 1962, marks a dramatic change in Foucault's thinking. Examining the history of madness as a social and cultural construct, he has moved outside of the psychoanalytic tradition into the racial critique of Freud that was to dominate his later work.
