OriginEdit

Karen Horney (1885 - 1952) was a German psychoanalyst who practiced in the United States during her career. Her theories questioned traditional Freudian views, especially in theories of sexuality and the instinct orientation of psychoanalysis. Horney is credited with founded feminist psychology in response to Freud's own theory. Disagreeing with Freud about inherent differences in men and women she believed differences coming from society and culture rather than biology. Another theory that Horney saw differently from Freud was that narcissism came from needs and tendencies and are not inherent in human nature. She believed that a narcissist's self-esteem is not strong because it was not based on genuine accomplishments. During the end of her career Horney became self aware of her own prideful nature and narcissism writing about it in a few books.
