This publication is the new volume of the Contemporary Freud Series published by the IPA and now in association with Karnac Books.The book describes the developments of the concept of “splitting” both in the metapsychological and the clinical perspectives emphasizing the great importance of this topic for contemporary psychoanalysis.Starting with the history of the concept, the book covers the French, English and Latin American recent theorizations on the theme. In regard to the clinical approaches the volume will present in the different chapters the relationship between the “splitting” and complex clinical cases as borderline, perverse and psychosomatic conditions.The volume also includes aspects of “splitting” and the virtual reality as well as in traumatic situations, factors so important in contemporary life. The idea of this edition was to invite authors from different regions and orientations to promote a fruitful debate on the theme, thus enriching this seminal concept of Sigmund Freud.
