Missing Out : In Praise of the Unlived Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Missing Out is a meditation on reality and opportunity by Adam Phillips, Britain's pre-eminent psychoanalyst. We all have two lives - the life we live and the life of our fantasies.

But it is the life unlived - the person we have failed to be - that can trouble and even haunt us.

In Missing Out acclaimed psychoanalyst Adam Phillips delves into the gap between who we are and who we are not, to discover whether not getting what we want may be the unlikely key to the fully lived life. With his trademark combination of open-minded enquiry and exhilarating argument, drawing primarily on the twin worlds of literature and psychoanalysis, Phillips will delight readers old and new in this much-anticipated book.
