Otto Kernberg, M.D.

Otto F. Kernberg (born 1928) is a psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. He is most widely known for his psychoanalytic theories on borderline personality organization and narcissistic pathology. In addition, his work has been central in integrating postwar ego psychology (which was primarily developed in the United States and the United Kingdom) with Kleinian and other object relations perspectives (which was developed primarily in the United Kingdom and South America). His integrative writings were central to the development of modern object relations, a theory of mind that is perhaps the theory most widely accepted among modern psychoanalysts.

On Friday February 26, 2010 I sent the following email to Dr. Kernberg:
