Reviews and Endorsements

"The work of José Bleger, articulating with masterly clinical grasp sources going from Pichon-Rivière to Melanie Klein, and from Margaret Mahler to French philosophy, has steadily gained recognition since his early death. The distinguished authors of this volume generously attest to its present relevance." - Jorge L. Ahumada, Member of APA -Argentine Psychoanalytic Association, Training analyst and Former member of the board of Int. J. of Psych.

"With great expertise, Bleger investigated the relationship between the subject and institutions, showing how the family, group and social belonging were organizing factors in the personality. He discovered the importance of the psychoanalytic frame, whose apparent normality may conceal primary links which never achieved representability. His ideas greatly influenced Latin American psychoanalysis." - Jorge Luis Maldonado, member of APDEBA - Psychoanalytical Association of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Training Analyst and Former Vice president of APDEBA.

"Editors and authors of different generations and perspectives craft an illuminating context to meet José Bleger (1923-1972), whose thinking marked a turning point in the conception of the frame in psychoanalysis. Who could resist the temptation to read his seminal essay framed by such creative questions? A reference book." - Haydee Faimberg MD (IPA) Training and Supervising Analyst SPP (France) and APA (Argentina) and International Distinguished Fellow (British Society); author, The Telescoping of Generations: Listening to the Narcissistic Links Between Generations
