On narcissistic perversion

Authors


  • This text, published in Le génie des origines [The spirit of the origins] (Paris: Payot, 1992, pp. 284–98), was assembled by Racamier from two sources: the first part reproduces his pioneering paper on narcissistic perversion presented at the second International Psychoanalytic Family Therapy Congress in 1985 and published in the journal Gruppo (1987, pp. 11–27), while the second part, on perverse thought, comprises the text of a lecture delivered in 1991 to the eighth International Psychoanalytic Family Therapy Congress.
