“For those interested in understanding the basicsand the nuancesof attachment theory and its application to research, as well as its emphasis on etiological factors, [ital]Attachment and Psychoanalysis[/ital] will be a good tool.”

“Eagle has indeed made an important case for the relevance of attachment theory knowledge and work to primarily, psychoanalytic developmental theory and unfolding over a lifetime, most powerfully in earliest years, and secondarily, to the importance of empirical research as an avenue, additional to the clinical, to the understanding of the development and functioning of the human mind. For this, it can be strongly recommended reading for the psychoanalytic clinician eager to understand better what makes what he/she does in the consulting room work the way it does.”

Psychoanalytic Psychology


“This is the best and most systematic integration to date of these two bodies of theory, research, and clinical wisdom. Eagle is a foremost commentator on the evolution of psychoanalytic thinking. In this book, he provides a very welcome, mature, balanced, and fruitful bringing together of two traditions that have been separated for too long.”

—Peter Fonagy, OBE, FMedSci, FBA, PhD, Head, Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, United Kingdom; Chief Executive, Anna Freud Centre


“Eagle has the rare combination of a scientist's mind and a clinician's heart. His exceptionally lucid exploration of commonalities, disparities, and unresolved questions between the literatures on psychoanalysis and attachment is a 'must read.' This is an ideal text for advanced students in clinical training. It also deserves the attention of practicing therapists, empirical investigators, and anyone interested in individual psychology, sexuality, aggression, security, and the mitigation of suffering.”

—Nancy McWilliams, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey


“Eagle, one of the foremost scholars in both psychoanalysis and attachment theory, has given us a wonderful gift. In this cogent, original account, he unravels the intricate relationship between these influential theories and brings their history and complexity to life in a most accessible way. Eagle integrates recent advances in developmental study and neuroscience and breaks important new ground in examining the relationships among attachment, sexuality, and aggression. His remarkably broad, deep knowledge and rich clinical wisdom leap off every page.”
