Reviews and Endorsements

'In a time when interdisciplinary theory has too often been content merely to splice together the tag ends of opposed psychoanalytic ideas, Rosemary Gordon emerges as a true builder of psychological bridges. The basis of her thinking offers the traveler not only safe passage between Freud and Jung and Winnicott and Klein, but also stunningly beautiful views of the still untrammeled depths of human experience that stretch between and below what these great pioneers and their followers have so far managed to develop.'
- John E. Beebe

'It is a pleasure and an honor to have been asked to write some introductory remarks to this highly important work by Rosemary Gordon, fittingly entitled Bridges. I would venture to say that, like myself, the reader of this volume soon will come to appreciate the author's deep concern and special skill in building bridges - bridges in a great many directions.'
- From the Foreword by Mario Jacoby

'I have read the chapters of this book, which have been sent me and I am very impressed by Rosemary Gordon's approach to the topic. She has developed and expanded the idea of bridging as a way of perceiving and understanding clinical, social and mythological material.

'The book contains many useful ways of understanding various clinical and conceptual issues and problems, so that psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and psychologists, trained in other orientations, could find that they obtain not only illumination for their own approach, but also a deeper appreciation of the contributions of the Analytical Psychologists to the understanding of mental pain and mental phenomena.

'In fact, Rosemary Gordon's book Bridges: Metaphors for Psychic Processes is itself a "bridge", not only between ideas, concepts and clinical problems encountered by those working with mentally ill patients, but also between herself and other colleagues in the related disciplines of anthropology, sociology, philosophy and the natural sciences, any of whom could have their ways of thinking enriched by reading this book.'
- Pearl King
