Reviews and Endorsements

'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

'Distilled in this little book is a great deal of contemporary wisdom regarding the importance of dreams in clinical practice, written and given as lectures by psychoanalysts of the British Society. The devotion and intelligence applied to deepening our understanding of the unconscious makes for rewarding reading.'
- Paul Williams PhD, Joint Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Psychoanalysis

'This clever and modest book about current views of dreams is striking because it manages to convey so much in just a few pages, without losing depth of thought or resorting to traditional psychoanalytical jargon. It focuses on what is really essential without being partisan to any specific school. This book is essential reading for both analysts and academics interested in present day psychoanalysis.'
- Elias M. da Rocha Barros, Editor for Latin America of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis, Supervising and Training Analyst
