One of the Most Important New Books in Psychology?

APA Louis Rothschild calls Sidney Blatt’s Polarities of Experience: Relatedness and Self-Definition in Personality Development, Psychopathology, and the Therapeutic Process “revolutionary,” and argues, “Sidney Blatt has offered nothing other than a paradigmatic conception of the self.”  He also notes “Blatt…clearly takes the stand that the lack of cohesive unification in DSM–IV, the forced and arbitrary demarcation between normal and pathological, is wrongheaded. To that end, I highly recommend this volume to the architects of DSM–V as they would do well to take note of what is found here.”  What’s the likelihood this will happen?
