Life Narcissism Death Narcissism
By Andre Green
Contributions by: Andrew Weller
This English translation of Narcissisme de Vie Narcissisme de Mort covers Green's attempt to link the theory of narcissism to Freud's final theory of the drives. While narcissism is generally only considered in terms of its positive aspects in which it is linked to the life drives, Green shows that it is necessary to postulate the existence of a death-giving narcissism, which he calls negative narcissism.
