Reviews and Endorsements

‘We apprehended from these supervisions that the analyst’s job is of a primarily descriptive, rather than explanatory, nature, as the function of interpretation used to be considered. We do not explain anything; we simply give our opinions. As for dreams, Meltzer emphasised that the manifest content is not at all manifest: we cannot find out the meaning of any dream until we discover the symbolformation within it. This is comprised not only by its pictorial aspect but also by the language content which accompanies the dream and its description in the session. The authors of this book are unanimous in acknowledging Meltzer as a spontaneous thinker whose thinking embodies learning from experience. His generosity, his humour, and his life wisdom impressed all the people who worked with him in a highly positive way.’
- Marisa Pelella Melega, Training analyst, Brazilian Psychoanalytic Society of São Paulo
