What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Montana Katz writes in a way that combines lovely intuitions and rigorous thinking. This book is a delight!" - Jerome Bruner, New York University, USA

"Is it possible to formulate a unified theory of psychoanalysis that takes due account of differences? Montana Katz’s original in-depth response to this key question turns around the concepts of metaphor and field. Her selection of papers by leading contemporary analysts offers fruitful links to the ideas of Willy and Madeleine Baranger who were the first to develop field theory in psychoanalysis, thereby opening up problems that remain as relevant today as they were in their own time, particularly in the context of the psychoanalytic encounter... As a fascinating interplay between different but equally insightful and scholarly perspectives, this book is unique and I therefore recommend it most enthusiastically." - Haydee Faimberg, MD, Paris Psychoanalytical Society, author of The Telescoping of Generations: Listening to the Narcissistic links between Generations

"This outstanding collection of essays from a theoretically diverse, internationally acclaimed group of analytic authors represents an important contribution to our understanding of field theory and therapeutic action. In exploring the role of metaphor in the creation and transformation of the intersubjective analytic field, it reaffirms the central places that language and the creation of meaning hold in the analytic process and cure." - Howard Levine, Psychoanalytic Institute of New England, USA
