Psychoanalysis seen through Bion's eyes is a radical departure from all conceptualizations which preceded him. In this major contribution to the series Makers of Modern Psychotherapy, Joan and Neville Symington concentrate on understanding Bion's concepts in relation to clinical practice, but their book is also accessible to the educated reader who wishes to understand the main contours of Bion's thinking. Rather than following the chronological development of Bion's ideas, each chapter looks in depth at an important theme in his thinking and describes how this contributes to his revolutionary model of the mind.

Sigmund Freud hat sich schon 1913 Gedanken darüber gemacht, welche Wissenschaften ein besonderes Interesse an der Psychoanalyse haben könnten. Er nannte in diesem Zusammenhang Psychologie (vor allem Entwicklungspsychologie), Sprachwissenschaften, Philosophie, Biologie, Kulturgeschichte, Kunstwissenschaften, Soziologie und Pädagogik. Dass die Psychoanalyse umgekehrt vom Wissen anderer Wissenschaften profitiert, war ihm zwar bewusst, schließlich hatte er selbst fundierte Kenntnisse in diesen Gebieten, er ging diesen Bezügen aber nicht ausdrücklich nach, sondern beließ es bei der Hoffnung auf »reiche Verknüpfungen«. In welchem Ausmaß die Psychoanalyse heute von zahlreichen Wissenschaften herangezogen wird, um sich selbst, ihre Erkenntnisinteressen, ihre Forschungsgegenstände und ihre Wirkungen zu verstehen, belegt ein Fülle von Publikationen. Im Laufe der Zeit hat auch die Psychoanalyse erkannt, dass sie auf das Wissen anderer Wissenschaften angewiesen ist, um hinsichtlich ihrer zentralen Aufgaben Heilung und Kulturkritik nicht zu veralten und um ihr Gewicht im Rahmen des Wissenschaftssystems zu verstärken. Der Band macht anhand von je zwei Beiträgen aus der Psychoanalyse einerseits und Medizin, Philosophie, Theologie, Psychologie, Pädagogik, Soziologie, Literatur- und Sprachwissenschaften andererseits die gegenseitige Bereicherung sichtbar.

Healing Identities

Group identifications famously pose the problem of destructive rhetoric and action against others. Cynthia Burack brings together the theory work of women of color and the tools of psychoanalysis to examine the effects of group collaborations for social justice and progressive politics. This juxtaposition illuminates some assumptions about race and equality encoded in psychoanalysis. Burack's discursive analysis suggests the positive, identity-affirming aspects of group relational life for African American women. One analytic response to groups emphasizes the dangers of these identifications and exhorts people to abandon or transcend them for their own good and for the good of others who may be harmed by group-based forms of cultural or material violence. Another response understands that people feel a need for group identifications and asks how they may be made more resistant to malignant group-based discourse and action. What can black feminist thought teach scholars and democratic citizens about groups? Burack shows how the rhetoric of black feminism models reparative, rather than destructive, forms of group dialogue and action. Although it may be impossible to eliminate group identifications that provide much of the impetus for bias and violence, she argues, we can encourage more progressive forms of leadership, solidarity, and coalition politics.

The author surveys Bion's publications and elaborates on his key contributions in depth while also critiquing them. The scope of this work is to synopsize, synthesize, and extend Bion's works in a reader-friendly manner. The book presents his legacy - his most important ideas for psychoanalysis. These ideas need to be known by the mental health profession at large. This work highlights and defines the broader and deeper implications of his works.It presents his ideas faithfully and also uses his ideas as "launching pads" for the author's conjectures about where his ideas point. This includes such ideas as "the Language of Achievement", "reverie," "truth," "O," and "transformations"- in, of, and from it, but also " L," "H," and "K" linkages (to show how Bion rerouted Freud's instinctual drives to emotions), "container/contained, Bion's ideas on "dreaming," "becoming," "thoughts without a thinker," "the Grid," his erasure of the distinction between Freud's, "primary and secondary processes " and the "pleasure" and "reality principles," "reversible perspective," "shifting vertices," "binocular vision," "contact-barrier," the replacement of "consciousness" and "unconsciousness" with infinity and finiteness, Bion's use of models, his distinction between "mentalization" and "thinking," as well as many other items.
