Reviews and Endorsements

An Analytic Journey is a wonderful collection of Marilia Aisenstein’s writings, attesting to her long and outstanding career as a psychoanalyst. Reading this book felt akin to embarking on a fascinating analytic journey through new and exciting psychic terrains, led by the most original of guides. The author is an engaging and creative writer who shares her discoveries and explorations both in terms of content and approach in an ever-changing world. Especially intriguing is the way Aisenstein’s writing bears witness to her own personal and professional growth. This is one psychoanalytic journey not to be missed.’
- Antonino Ferro, president of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society

‘Representing the best of the French psychoanalytic tradition, Marilia Aisenstein seamlessly blends the foundational work of Freud with the important contributions of Lacan, Laplanche, Green, Pontalis, Marty, and M’Uzan. She tackles a wide range of topics, including the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis, the father’s role in development, bisexuality, the destruction of thought process, and, above all, the indissoluble unity of psyche and soma. The last-mentioned topic is Aisenstein’s forte and she is undoubtedly the finest scholar and practitioner of psychoanalysis in this realm. The ample material provided from her clinical work makes this book humane, lively, and deeply convincing.’
- Salman Akhtar, MD, training and supervising analyst, Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia
