‘With the double, the paraphrenic twin, the spectrum of identities, the chimera, paradoxical thinking, the same and the identical, the economic scandal, the vital-identical programme, the work of dying, and other original contributions by de M’Uzan, you are entering the world of an analyst that harmoniously conjugates a refined description of the single analytic session with an encompassing view of the mind, or, more to the point, of the psyche-soma. Reading de M’Uzan offers a fresh outlook on clinical work and a refreshing perspective on the possibilities of psychoanalysis in various domains. Indeed, Michel de M’Uzan is a psychoanalyst who throughout his long career of more than fifty years has been able to build creatively on Freud’s discoveries in many important domains: in psychoanalysis proper, of course, but also in psychosomatics, in his work with terminally ill patients, and in the field of artistic creation.’
- Professor Dominique Scarfone, Professor at the Department of Psychology of the Université de Montréal, and associate editor of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis
