Book Description

This book expands  the authors' oeuvre to the English language and, consequently, to a broader spectrum of readers. These contributions represent a pioneering work of great interest to the field of psychoanalysis. Their proposals concerning the concept of psychoanalytic field, "basic unconscious fantasy", bastion and insight, address the whole question of the analytic situation and anticipate current debates.
