This collection illuminates the legacy of Wilfred R. Bion in Brazil, illustrating Bion's continued influence on the work of the Sao Paulo Psychoanalytic Society (SBPSP), how Bionian ideas are applied in contemporary psychoanalysis, and how current practice has evolved over time.

Evelise de Souza Marra and Cecil Jose Rezze bring together theoretical and clinical approaches to provide a thorough perspective on Bionian work in Brazil. The book includes chapters by senior analysts, well-respected teachers and analytic clinicians in contemporary Brazilian psychoanalysis, each of which explores a topic central to Bion's formulations. With discussion of key themes including turbulence, emotional experience, transference, caesura and mental pain, this book demonstrates how Wilfred R. Bion's thought has been developed, transformed and applied in Brazil since his visits there in the 1970s.

Bion's Legacy in Sao Paulo will be of great interest to psychoanalysts in practice and in training, particularly those looking to understand Bion's influence in more depth, and for anyone interested in the practice of psychoanalysis in Latin America.

Reviews and Endorsements

Bion's contributions to psychoanalytic technique are complex, innovative, profound and deserve intense and repeated studies. His formulations represent the most radical paradigm shift in psychoanalysis
