Reviews and Endorsements

‘This book is a tribute to the memory of James S. Grotstein, one of the most prolific, brilliant, and creative contemporary psychoanalytic authors. It is, to use an expression he wrote to me in a private correspondence “a wow!” But in fact it is much more. Edited by Annie Reiner, this collection of works by some of the most internationally respected analysts promises to become a “must read” text, not only on Grotstein – Bion’s former analysand and then disciple – but on Bion himself, and post-Bionian psychoanalysis. Central features of this field of studies are presented with passion, competence and originality. Among them: the aesthetic dimension of the mind, the ineffable nature of O, the treatment of primitive mental states, and others. In the end the reader will discover that what is really at stake here is nothing less than a true paradigm shift in psychoanalysis, just one more good reason why this book should be read by any practicing analyst and psychotherapist.’
—Giuseppe Civitarese, author of The Necessary Dream: New Theories and Techniques of Interpretation in Psychoanalysis
