Reviews and Endorsements

‘Meltzer depicts the analytic situation as the development of an honest and sincere cooperation between the two partners of the analytic setting, permitting them to ignore hearsay, gossip, and various beliefs that claim to be reasonable. Instead, there is the deep conviction that, as he said, “the ultimate criterion of true reasonableness is a labour of love, and it results in the achievement of beauty – in its ultimate form, poetry”. It is this experience of a space to seek beauty and truth through a meticulous search for meaning that we shared, thanks to Donald Meltzer. We hope this collection of texts from the GERPEN seminars will convey to the reader the pleasure and taste of the experience.‘
