'We are very fortunate to have Michel Minolli's quite remarkable book, Essere e Divenire, la sofferenza dell'individualismo, published by Franco Angeli in Italy in 2015, now translated into English. Minolli's psychoanalysis is ontological in the deepest, most compassionate sense of the word. He is interested in how we are able to be human beings, just as he is keenly attuned to who we are becoming. Using his personal experience as a psychoanalyst, he turns his attention to the individual's ability for consistency-a rich, meaningful way of thinking about the vicissitudes of experience within oneself and with others. Minolli marshals a deep sense of philosophical, psychoanalytic and cultural lenses on the process of being human'. - Steven H. Cooper, Harvard Medical School.

'A passionate, trenchant research into man's misery and nobility. The single, unique, unrepeatable human being who, starting from his non-chosen coming to life-limited to the biological, spatial, temporal, cultural and family level-can aspire to a substantial "becoming" and can, with "head held high", take his "I am", consciously, with awareness and creatively, in open interaction with "the other" in the social, cultural and political context. A positive call to hope at a time in human history when every individual is likely to lose their bearings and sink into a vain, noisy, inconsistent individualism'. - Gian Paolo Scano, SITPA.
