In two brilliant essays, Adam Phillips reveals what is at the heart of psychoanalysis--how it can be practiced so that analyst and patient might live more fully, more creatively. In the first essay, 'The Magic of Winnicott: Playing and Reality and Reality', Phillips makes clear the subtlety and wisdom of Winnicott s concept of play. The essay is followed by a conversation between Phillips and Edward Corrigan, analyst and friend, which offers an intimate portrait of two analysts in conversation while thoughtfully reflecting on traditions that inform Phillip's practice and his prolific writings.

This book is a record of A Day with Adam Phillips and includes questions and and commentaries, each reflecting in a unique way the creative and open expression encouraged throughout the symposium. Finally, in his essay 'The Cure for Psychoanalysis' Phillips works through psychoanalytic theories about cure and instructs us to take most seriously those that free the analyst and patient to wonder and to take pleasure in the unknowable adventure ahead of them.

“We know Adam Phillips to be a remarkable writer but in this wonderfully spirited book we discover he is also an endlessly interesting conversationalist. With his old friend, Ed Corrigan, as a talk-buddy, we are privy to dialogue as a form of performance art. There is genius here; there is good humor; there is joy. It doesn't get better than this.” Christopher Bollas, psychoanalyst, author of Meaning and Melancholia, and The Shadow of the Object.
