There are countless books on sex and an endless fascination with the subject. Varieties and vagaries of sexual desire have long been documented, but there has been little engagement with cutting-edge scientific research to uncover the biological and psychological bases of sexual desire. Here, Frederick Toates uses the insights of modern science to show how a wide range of desire-related phenomena - fantasy, novelty-seeking, sexual addiction, sex-drug interactions, fetishes, voyeurism, and sexual violence and killing - start to make sense. For example, the role of the brain's neurochemical dopamine can now be much better understood in terms of wanting, and a distinction between wanting and liking has been established. Also, an understanding of the layered organization of the brain, sometimes described as hierarchical, can be used to explain temptation and conflict. This is a fascinating book with great social relevance to society and its problems with sexuality.

The concept of sexual addiction has gained increasing recognition in the academic and healthcare communities since the 1990s. It has also captured the attention of the media, where there has been much debate over whether it can truly be described as an addiction. What is certain is that many people struggle with out of control sexual behaviour, which takes over their lives and has harmful consequences for their relationships, careers and finances. The Routledge International Handbook of Sexual Addiction brings together a comprehensive range of perspectives on sexual addiction from a worldwide selection of scholars and therapists. It sets out to define sexual addiction and to study its causes from a range of different psychological perspectives. A series of presentations of sexual addiction are outlined, including internet sexual addiction and the relationship between paraphilias and sex addiction. The handbook considers both individual and group treatment strategies, drawing on a wide range of approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and 12-step programmes. The book studies sex addiction in specific populations including women, adolescents and men who have sex with men. Finally, it considers some of the alternative discourses surrounding the concept of sexual addiction. This is the first comprehensive reference book to bring together global viewpoints on advances in research, theory and practice in one volume. This handbook provides an essential guide for academics and students of psychotherapy, counselling, nursing, addiction, sexualities, social work and health and social care, as well as professionals in practice and in training working with sexual addiction and related issues.

تسمح لنا عادتنا في الكلام , حينما نعرض لوصف الظواهر المرضية أن نميز بين حالات الكف والأعراض المرضية بدون أن نعلق مع ذلك أهمية كبيرة علي هذا التمييز . ولولا أننا نصادف حالات مرضية نلاحظ فيها أنها تظهر حالات كف فقط بدون وجود أعراض مرضية , ولولا أننا نريد أن نعرف سبب ذلك لما فكرنا في أنه من الأجدر أن نميز بدقة بين معني الكف و معني العرض . وليس هذان المعنيان متشابهين . فالكف يتعلق علي الأخص بالوظيفة وهو لا يدل بالضرورة علي حالة مرضية . أما العرض فهو يدل في الواقع علي وجود حالة مرضية .

Četrnaest godina nakon „Korekcija“ i pet godina nakon „Slobode“ Franzen je napisao još jedan velik roman, „najintimniji dosad, u kojem je svojem glasu dodao neke nove tonove“. The New York Times „Čistoća“, naslov novog romana Jonathana Franzena, ujedno je i značenje imena glavne junakinje (Purity) i koncept koji zadobiva mnoge oblike u romanu. Purity Pip Tyler živi kao skvoterica u Oaklandu, opterećena je studentskim kreditom, a jedina joj je obitelj majka. Odrasla gotovo u izolaciji, ne zna majčin pravi identitet ni tko joj je otac i boji se da nikad neće imati normalan život. Druženje s anarhistima iz Njemačke odvodi Pip u Južnu Ameriku gdje počinje raditi kao pripravnica u Sunčanom projektu, hakerskoj skupini sličnoj WikiLeaksu. Pip se nada da će tamo otkriti tajnu svoga podrijetla. Na čelu grupacije karizmatični je Andreas Wolf, koji je mladost proveo u Istočnoj Njemačkoj i proslavio se u vrijeme pada Berlinskoga zida. Premda mnogo stariji od nje, Wolf pokazuje naklonost prema Pip i između njih se razvija poseban i intenzivan odnos. Ova se priča grana u prošlost i sadašnjost, u sedam povezanih dijelova knjige koji su ispripovijedani kroz prizme različitih likova. Pri tom Franzen stvara svijet originalnih i nezaboravnih likova – novinari, leakeri, ljubavnici i supružnici, loši pisci, karijeristi, tragičari. Gotovo svaki lik u romanu traži “čistoću” u nekom obliku, a propitivanje istine i laži, čistog i zagađenog događa se na mnogim razinama njihove egzistencije i međusobnih odnosa. „Čistoća“ je zamršen, ali savršeno kontroliran roman o velikim temama (život u komunizmu i pad Istočnog bloka, ogoljavanje privatnosti u eri interneta, korupcijske afere u visokoj politici, toksičnost kulture opsjednute slavom). No ipak, u samom srcu romana pulsiraju puno intimniji problemi i teme: propali brakovi, slomljena prijateljstva, mučna djetinjstva, seksualne fantazije i perverzije, trenuci kad se suočavamo s vlastitim demonima, ludilom i kaosom. Svi likovi u romanu nose neku svoju tajnu, sram i krivnju, a sâm Franzen “Čistoću” je nazvao knjigom o našim modricama i povredama. Ovim romanom Franzen je još jedanput pokazao da je izuzetan pripovjedač koji proniče u bolne točke današnjice i naše egzistencije, snažno, duhovito i s profinjenom dozom ironije.
