Psychoanalysis is an intimate clinical experience and the concepts that it explores aim to grapple with the specific phenomena that unfold when a patient speaks and an analyst listens. This book aims to give concrete examples of how these concepts take shape when analysts work.

The structure of the contributions presented in this book matches this concern; drawing on a fragment of an analysis, each contribution illustrates how a notion reveals unforeseen perspectives. The list of entries selected is diverse, with notions encountered in international studies since the Second World War prioritised. Certain classical concepts are nonetheless included when their significance has been shaped by the innovative rereading that contemporary authors have made of them. However, not all the entries in this glossary constitute concepts: some correspond to notions, others to intuitions, and even to recurrent situations with which the analyst is confronted. By grounding, in each entry, the theoretical reflection on a clinical case, the reader is lead towards the incessant to-and-fro process which governs the analyst's reflections from clinical experience to theory.

This book therefore constitutes an essential tool for psychologists, psychoanalysts and all professionals in the field of mental care.

Reviews and Endorsements

"This is an innovative, interesting and creative way of exploring key psychoanalytic concepts. This most significant book offers a number of short presentations from prestigious analysts who explore and illustrate fundamental psychoanalytic concepts from a contemporary perspective. Clinical examples illustrate the different theoretical approaches that the authors follow, how they think and practise. Rooted on Freudian thinking, the reader will encounter different perspectives on concepts such as the presence of the analyst, transference, listening and interpretation, figures and forms, the frame and setting, the role of the drives, of trauma, sexualities and otherness among many other fundamental concepts. This book will be of great value to both psychoanalysts and to a wider interested readership alike." - Catalina Bronstein, Training and Supervising Analyst of the British Psychoanalytical Society and Visiting Professor in the Psychoanalysis Unit at University College London.

"This is a great profoundly psychoanalytic contribution. Parsimonious, deep, insightful and introducing me to lots of things I half-knew or hadn't thought about. Good to keep by and browse at random. Will repay hours of attention." - David Tuckett, formerly president of the European Psychoanalytic Federation, Editor-in-Chief of the International Psychoanalytic Journal and a Professor at UCL and Training and Supervising Analyst in London.
