Reviews and Endorsements

‘The best writing comes from a sense of exhaustion, fatigue, life having been drained from a once fecund body of work. This is the place Nietzsche began his philosophical project, and, as Jared Russell shows in this work of adept brilliance, Nietzsche is precisely what psychoanalysis needs now – having collapsed under the threat of a concrete culture of self-help therapies on the one hand, and the demands of a dispassionate scientism on the other. Placing Nietzsche alongside Klein, Winnicott, Bion, Lacan, and many others, Russell gives us a deeply clinical means of reading arguably one of the most important and prophetic thinkers of the nineteenth century.’
––Jamieson Webster, author of The Life and Death of Psychoanalysis

‘It seems incredible that one finds a volume that illuminates aspects of both the philosophic world and the psychoanalytic clinical domain. Jared Russell has managed to do both and a world more since he brings light to some of the more important philosophic figures (Nietzsche for example) and some of the most important psychoanalytic figures (from Helene Deutsch to Bion). I know that this is inappropriate, but it is a book that I wish I had written. I will have to settle for reading this fascinating volume.’
––Steven J. Ellman, author of When Theories Touch: A Historical and Theoretical Integration of Psychoanalytic Thought
