Maps for Psychoanalytic Exploration brings together Parthenope Bion Talamo’s main works, until now published only in Italian. They are made available to a wider readership in this volume through a translation into English by Shaun Whiteside, supported by the generosity of the members of the Melanie Klein Trust.

In these chapters Parthenope explores important implications of her father’s ideas at different levels of psychic and social organisation. Her writing is very clear and, as Dr Anna Bauzzi, the Editor of the Italian edition, writes in her Introduction, the quality of it makes many of Bion’s ideas more accessible, without any reduction of their complexity.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘These essays that illuminate and are rooted in the ideas of Wilfred Bion are written from the heart, with warmth, depth and incisive intelligence. They provide a penetrating insight into the trajectory of Bion’s thinking and make an important contribution in their own right to the understanding of mental movement, its role in psychic functioning and its relation to the cultural surround. Their innovative application and extension of Bion’s understanding of the centrality of unique, personal emotional experience in psychic growth and development are a testament to the author’s observation that “thinking dies if it is not refertilised and subsequently developed in the generation and the mind of each thinker”..’
— Howard Levine, Faculty, Psychoanalytic Institute of New England, East (PINE); co-editor of Growth and Turbulence in the Container/Contained and two forthcoming books, The Bion Tradition and Bion in Brazil
