Diamond determines where anger and rage originate and explores whether these powerful passions are--as most people believe--purely negative, pathological, and evil or can be meaningfully redeemed and rechanneled into constructive activity. Drawing on the discoveries of Freud, Jung, Adler, Rank, Reich, and Rollo May, as well as the work of other contemporary psychotherapeutic pioneers, he examines the psychobiological significance of these feelings and the link between anger, rage, violence, evil and creativity.
