|Series:||Psychoanalytic Ideas Series|
Including papers on the dream space and countertransference, the dream space, the analytic situation and eating disorders, dreams of borderline patients and the 'oracle' in dreams: the past and the future in the present.
'In the past decade, there has been something of a renaissance in psychoanalysis of the privileging of dreams, not only as the "royal road" to the unconscious, but as a fundamental (perhaps the fundamental) function of the unconscious. Dreaming and Thinking brings together an unusually rich set of essays which illustrate a range of approaches to dream analysis in contemporary analytic practice. This collection, drawn from public lectures delivered by members of the British Psycho-Analytical Society, is remarkable both for the clarity of thinking and the freedom from analytic jargon and ideology demonstrated by the authors.' --Thomas Ogden, M.D., Member of the International Psychoanalytical Association, Supervising and Training Analyst
