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.
