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.
