My name is Sören Lander. I'm from Sweden, my profession is psychologist and I have been translating Pichon-Rivière and texts by other Argentinian psychoanalysts and psychologists from Spanish to Swedish since the mid 90's. Therefore I know quite a bit about this "psychoanalytic and psychological school".

To my knowledge this is the first time some of Pichon's texts have been made available to an English-speaking audience ... and it is fantastic to see this book published and hopefully spread to many professionals in the English-speaking world. Earlier I have read the book written by Juan Tubert-Oklander and his wife about Operative Groups. That book was also published by Karnac (2004). I made a review of the book in a Scandinavian journal in 2005 (://

I read English as well as Spanish fluently and therefore I have no problems reading The Linked Self in Psychoanalysis. Although this publication makes me very happy there are some remarks I have to make after reading the introduction. Obviously English is not my first language, but reading the introduction makes me feel that neither of those three persons responsible for the introduction have English as a first language. The text should be given a more proper English "look". It just doesn't sound English to me.

Now as I get on reading the first of the translated texts I'm a bit curious about what I will find (as I am familiar with the texts by Pichon, having translated them to Swedish). As there are three persons having translated the book I imagine the quality will vary a bit from text to text.

So - with great interest I will continue my reading of the book and with the intention to review it later on in some Scandinavian journal.

With the best wishes,
Sören Lander
