The 17 papers in this volume are organized into eight sections covering psychoanalytic history, clinical theory, developmental psychology, clinical psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic education, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, a tribute to Jean, Piaget, and applied psychoanalysis. Taken collectively, a number of these papers can be seen as evidence that psychoanalysis, at least at its leading edge, is coming into its own as a truly developmental psychology.

Indeed, they represent a sampling of the best in psychoanalytic scholarship. It should be read by all who wish to keep current with the most significant new trends in contemporary psychoanalysis.
