Reviews and Endorsements

'This book is truly exceptional in many respects. It offers an original diachronic and panoramic analysis of the development of Winnicott's ideas. In effect, it lays the foundations for the construction of nothing less than a genealogy of the Winnicottean opus. This represents a daring undertaking and a most innovative approach in presenting the three-dimensionality of Winnicott's contribution. It succeeds in providing an in-depth, authoritative and scholarly study that, written in an accessible language, enhances considerably our understanding of Winnicott's presence in the psychoanalytic project. I have no doubt that soon the book will establish itself as a standard text, indeed, a classic, and it will become indispensable in any serious endeavour to grasp not only Winnicott's work and its legacy but also the intertwining routes that psychoanalytic theory and practice follow in their development.'
- Renos K Papadopoulos PhD, Professor at the Centre of Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex.
