Reviews and Endorsements

'This book, inspired by Winnicott's life and work, adopts, broadly, two themes: the true self and the resonance of Winnicott's thinking with the contributions of other major psychoanalysts of the past half century.The second theme could be said to emerge from the first: the pursuit of authenticity, whether by patient or analyst. There is no more important concern for psychoanalysis. Our role, in a world where the complex role of healing is often displaced by strategies of rationalisation and normalisation, requires defending by example. These papers are emblematic of analytic work at its finest. I cannot imagine anyone with a serious interest in mental health failing to be inspired by their integrity.'
- Paul Williams, Joint Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Psychoanalysis
