Reviews and Endorsements

'The authors who contribute to The Greening of Psychoanalysis offer a kind of “Planet Green” that we are invited to explore and perhaps even inhabit analytically. They reside in the symbolic environment created by André Green. As Kohon reminds us, in the words of Shakespeare, “we are such stuff as dreams are made on”. At the outset, Rosine Perelberg’s impressive study highlights Green’s major contributions on narcissism, thirdness, psychic temporality, and the death drives, as well as the openings towards the obscure domains of clinical practice with borderline patients. Poetry is never far from Green’s discourse, as the unforgettable dead mother reminds us. The idea of the negative is to the unconscious what perspective was to painting in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries: it offers depth and space. The book is a testament to the eloquence and creativity that Green, as well as the authors inspired by him, have brought to all domains of human endeavour, be they clinical or aesthetic. We cannot be the same analysts after Green as we were before.”
- Jean Claude Rolland, Training Analyst of the Association Psychanalytique de France, author, and co-editor of the 30 volumes of Libres Cahiers Pour la Psychanalyse
