Summary

André Green attempts the complex task of identifying and examining the key ideas for a contemporary psychoanalytic practice.

This undertaking is motivated both by the need for an outline of the evolution of psychoanalysis since Freud's death, and by the hope of tackling the fragmentation which has led to the current 'crisis of psychoanalysis'.

In three sections covering the theoretical and practical aspects of psychoanalysis, and analysing the current state of the field, André Green provides a stimulating overview of the principal concepts that have guided his work. Subjects covered include:

  • Transference and countertransference
  • Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy: modalities and results
  • Language-speech-discourse in psychoanalysis
  • Recognition of the unconscious

This unique contemporary perspective on the psychoanalytic enterprise will fascinate all those with an interest in the problems that face the field and the opportunities for its future development.
