Reviews and Endorsements

'This book discusses the pathological structure that we call perversion, constantly keeping in mind two main issues: the need for clear definitions, and the uniqueness of the viewpoint from which we account for the phenomenon. In this case, the viewpoint is that of considering how perversion appears in the intersubjective field, and how it, therefore, ends up by being a psychic reality in the analyst's mind. In a situation of theoretical pluralism, there is an essential need for a conceptual analysis that clearly defines the basic pathological categories, that distinguishes the experiential dimension of the analytical situation from the metapsychological description, that takes into due account the inferential processes of the analyst at work, and that underlines the importance of the psychogenesis in the comprehension of the perversion. I think that in this sense the book by Jiménez and Moguillansky is an excellent and successful example. The clinical cases and the technical reflections, as well as Hanly's preface and the discussions by Krause and Fonagy, all enrich a book that is already generous towards its readers.'
- Jorge Canestri, MD, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and training and supervising analyst for the Italian Psychoanalytic Association and for the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association
