Raphael M. Bonelli - Male Narcissism


Liberation from the bonds of self-centredness

Commonly, narcissism has been considered to be something associated with the male gender, and the latest studies confirm that most narcissists are indeed men. These are people who impress with their self-confidence and charm, yet their charisma has no warmth. They do not lead happy lives, and their desire for recognition is a prison that they cannot break out of. This is especially apparent in love, which the narcissist knows only as self-love.

Based on the latest findings, illustrated with many case studies, and embedded in psychological and philosophical contexts, this book by the psychiatrist and psychotherapist Raphael M. Bonelli explores the inner chains of the narcissistic man: the exaggerated feeling of self-worth, the failed relationships, and the lack of self-transcendence. He shows as well the windows that lead to freedom. It is possible for narcissists as well to develop empathy and to discover healthy masculinity and ultimately to experience true love.

•A psychogram of the narcissistic man
