"Midlife" is a concept used everywhere and from many different vertexes, though mostly imprecisely, even within the psychoanalytic paradigm. This book tries to settle its proper meaning through the challenge of laying the foundations for the development of a true psychoanalytic metapsychology for "midlife", something that the editors believe in psychoanalysis was lacking. From this viewpoint, they invited fourteen renowned psychoanalysts to share their ideas about the issue. The outcome of that work is Updating Midlife: Psychoanalytic Perspectives, which, in addition to the various contributions, includes an introductory paper by the editors. This book is a true step forward in the development of a specific metapsychology for "midlife".

The book includes contributions by Alcira Mariam Alizade (Argentina), Christopher Bollas (UK), Stefano Bolognini (Italy), Calvin A. Colarusso (USA), Franco de Masi (Italy), Cláudio Laks Eizirik (Brazil), Haydée Faimberg (France), Glen O. Gabbard (USA), Charles M. T. Hanly (Canada), Luis Kancyper (Argentina), Norberto Carlos Marucco (Argentina), Guillermo Julio Montero (Argentina), Leo Rangell (USA), and David Rosenfeld (Argentina).

The contributions to this book cover a range of specific areas: contributors' own definitions of midlife, and if the concept was something worthwhile discussing; if midlife could be regarded as a stage of development; if midlife could be understood through regular Freudian thinking; if they had personal ideas about midlife ensuing from the Freudian ones; if they had an explanation for a proper metapsychological understanding of midlife, and many more.

‘Going through what we know as midlife is - in the best case scenario - something which affects us all and is not without consequences. The outcome depends on an adequate working-through process resulting in creative possibilities or, sometimes, really worrying effects. The editors juxtapose their own developments - achieved over many years - with skilful interviews, conducted with some of the most renowned authors in contemporary psychoanalysis, inviting them to share and compare their ideas on the topic. In this way, they offer us a resource which is at the same time intellectually deep and pleasant, which will appeal to professionals as well as any reader who is interested in the subject.’
- Abel Mario Fainstein, MD, Psychoanalyst, President of Latin America Psychoanalytic Federation, Ex–President of the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association
