Attention Seeking Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A short, fascinating introduction to the concept of attention from Britain's leading psychoanalyst, author of Missing Out and On Kindness. What we find of interest may tell us more than we think... 'Everything depends on what, if anything, we find interesting: on what we are encouraged and educated to find interesting, and what we find ourselves being interested in despite ourselves.

There is our official curiosity and our unofficial curiosity (and psychoanalysis is a story about the relationship between the two) . . .'Based on three connected talks on the subject of attention, this pocket-sized book is a quirky and memorable introduction to the concept of our attention - how we spend it, and what it might tell us about ourselves.

From Britain's pre-eminent psychoanalyst, this is an essential new addition to the Adam Phillips canon. 'The best living essayist writing in English' - John Gray
