This book is an attempt to reinvent psychoanalysis and to make it relevant to more people. It presents a clear model of the personality where the mind is described as an organ that has evolved in the process of sexual rather than natural selection.
In contrast to what Freud conceptualized, the mind can be viewed as a mental representation of nature and not a mediator between the drives and “reality”. The author shows that the consequences to mental health are enormous. It is metaphors and not science that are key to psychological growth. Self-esteem increases when the mind can utilize the Libido to sustain its mental representations.
