How has Herbert Rosenfeld contributed to psychoanalysis today? "Rosenfeld in Retrospect" presents original psychoanalytic papers showing the influence of Herbert Rosenfeld on psychoanalysis today, and reproduces some of Rosenfeld's most important clinical writings. In the first section of this book, the conference papers: contemporary developments of Rosenfeld's work, the editor brings together papers and discussions by Rosenfeld's well known contemporaries: Hanna Segal, Edna O'Shaughnessy, Michael Feldman, Ronald Britton and Riccardo Steiner, who explore his contribution to psychoanalysis. John Steiner effectively demonstrates the importance of Rosenfeld's classic papers, and critically surveys the more controversial developments in his later work. Section two contains four papers by Rosenfeld, chosen by his colleagues as his most significant and original contributions. This collection conveys Rosenfeld's liveliness and influence, and will be of interest to all of those attracted to his work.
