Mercurio, A. (n.d.). Theory of the Person. Retrieved from

Do we really know what meaning to give to the term PERSON? In this book, the author proposes, through an in depth dialog with the students of the S.U.R. (Sophia University of Rome), the following answer: a PERSON is a spiritual, unifying principle that is endowed with its own freedom and its own identity, it is an end unto itself and unto no other, and its constituent elements are the ability to love oneself and to love others. The topics most debated in the book are: spirituality, freedom, the psychological dimension, the pleasure principle, the joy principle. The author also observes that today there are many schools of psychoanalysis and different therapeutic techniques that are often in contrast, and he poses the question as to whether it is possible to broaden Freudian metapsychology and extend it, so that all the various psychotherapeutic currents can be contained within a unifying viewpoint.
