This fascinating book assesses Sándor Ferenczi’s role in the history of psychoanalysis, examining his personal analysis with Freud, the father of the discipline.

The book delves into archival material to shed light on issues around transference between Freud and Ferenczi, as well as Ferenczi’s own development as ‘the first analyst.’ It offers a unique deciphering of the transmission of psychoanalysis process, distinguishing between self-analysis, personal analysis and training analysis.

Including a discussion on the duration and end of treatment, subjects rarely discussed in contemporary circles, the volume is an important read for practicing clinicians and scholars alike.

About the Author:

Yves Lugrin is a practicing psychoanalyst in Paris, France. He is an Associate Member of the Société de psychanalyse freudienne (SPF). His research interests include the treatment of psychoses, as well as the relation of psychoanalysis to literature and writing. His interest in Freudian correspondence has led him to question the place held by Sandor Ferenczi and his work in the history of psychoanalysis.
