A new PDF book (213 pages) based on emails between Donald Nathanson, M.D. and Gary David from 1999 to 2012. Don was a significant voice in the understanding and furthering of the work of Silvan Tomkins. His book Shame and Pride is a landmark in our understanding of affect in general and the affect of shame in particular.
After Don passed away in 2017, Gary was left with about 900 email exchanges, personal ones, as well as many exchanges with members of the Tomkins Institute on the Tomkins-Talk forum. He could not let such vital and relevant material drift away. It represents the development of Don’s thinking post-Shame and Pride.
Gary has collected these emails as a reminder of the fruitfulness of those dialogues and arranged them into 24 topics with comments at the beginning of each one.
You may find the emails illuminating, evocative, and provocative, but always imbued with vitality. They contain a depth of knowledge that is rare in the field of affect theory. Don took great pains to comment with care and to communicate with laser clarity, agree or not.
The price is $26, $5 of which will go to help support the Tomkins Institute. Please pay through PayPal.
