Bollas has in fact contributed, I would say marginally when compared to Searles for example to the field of PSA. Plus, with a careful reading of Searles, one can see certainly, at the very least the germination of Bollas' ideas. Conversations, has at its publication PR a notation that Bollas has produced a new style of literature. He has not and I have to say Conversations is simply a worthless clinical publication. If Bollas were not Bollas and have a following this work would NEVER be publishable. It is simply a narcissistic projection of a 'bunch' of quips at best, made to seem as though they are UCs somehow profound. I would suggest is the reader is interested in Bollas' work, stick with The Shadow of the Object, but not much after that is really worth the time. Plus, just a side note, in referring to 'Dr. Bollas, it MUST be noted that his doctorate is in LITERATURE and not a clinical doctorate. He has an MSW from Smith, which for some reason he simply refuses to list in his credentials. I find this actually misleading. Final thought, is that this work is a waste of ink and paper.
