About The Book

Who was Sabina Spielrein? Her dramatic life story is most famous for her notoriousaffair with Carl Jung, dramatised in the film A Dangerous Method starring KeiraKnightley. Yet she was a woman who overcame family and psychiatric abuse to becomean original thinker in the field of psychotherapy.

This is the first biography to put her life and ideas at the centre of the story, and toexamine Spielrein's key role in the development of psychoanalysis and in the riftbetween Jung and Freud. Drawing on fresh research into Spielrein's diaries, papersand correspondence, John Launer tells the story of a passionate woman whotransformed herself from one of Jung's disturbed patients into a leading figure inWestern psychology and then the Soviet intelligentsia, before her murder as a RussianJew in the Holocaust.

Sex Vs. Survival shows how Spielrein's overlooked ideas - rejected by Jung and Freud,but substantially vindicated by later developments in psychology and evolutionarybiology - may represent the last and most important stage in the rediscovery of anextraordinary life.
