Editorial Reviews

Canadian Psychology
...contains much thoughtful and provocative writing. This book will be of interest to mental health professionals who want detailed explanations of the theoretical, particularly philosophical basis for contemporary psychoanalysis, and to academic psychotherapists and philosophers with a direct interest in the subject.
Lewis Aron
All those with an interest in the philosophical underpinnings of current psychoanalytic debates and controversies will want to read Relational and Intersubjective Perspectives in Psychoanalysis. These papers are often tendentious and contentious, but perhaps just on this account they provoke thought and force a clarification of fundamental assumptions and a confrontation with key questions in our field.
Charles B. Strozier
This book is a superb indictment of the philosophical pretensions of relational and intersubjective theory. Well written and carefully edited, Jon Mills manages what no one else has done: to place contemporary psychoanalytic theory in historical and intellectual context. The papers are informed, fair where appropriate, and stinging in their criticism where needed.
