Building on the success and importance of three previous volumes, Relational Psychoanalysis continues to expand and develop the relational turn. Under the keen editorship of Lewis Aron and Adrienne Harris, and comprised of the contributions of many of the leading voices in the relational world, volumes 4 and 5 carry on the legacy of this rich and diversified psychoanalytic approach: Volume 4 takes a fresh look at developments in relational theory, and volume 5 demonstrates that theory in practice and process. Various topics bear investigation, including enactment, subjectivity and intersubjectivity, multiplicity of self-states, disclosure, trauma, fantasy, thirdness, and social construction, as well as issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and culture. Thoughtful, capacious, and integrative, these two new volumes place the leading edge of relational thought close at hand, and push the boundaries of the relational turn that much closer to the horizon.
