In Glacial Times, Salomon Resnik brings together various facets of his work as a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist, working in both the private sector and in institutional settings and in a wide range of cultural contexts, to provide a careful summary of a lifetime of clinical work.

Drawing on a wide range of psychoanalytic, philosophical and literary sources, and vignettes from the author's extensive clinical experience, this book brings the subject of psychosis to life and demonstrates how the study of psychoanalysis and psychosis forces us to confront fundamental ontological questions. Subjects covered include:

  • Transmission and Learning
  • The role of the body in psychosis
  • The Universe of Madness: Frozen words and thoughts
  • The Internal world and the philosophy of the unconcsious
  • Psychotic thinking and language
  • The Symbolic order and its deficiencies.

This synthesis of over fifty years of experience as a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist treating psychotic patients will fascinate anyone working in these fields.
