In this volume, psychoanalyst and poet Salman Akhtar directs his attention to the contributions of his distinguished colleagues. These include Christopher Bollas, Otto Kernberg, Thomas Ogden, Michael Parsons, Fred Pines, and Joseph Sandler, to name a few. Taking their views as a starting point, Akhtar addresses topics as diverse as hatred, object constancy, free-floating responsiveness, developmental interventions, and the tension between spontaneity and deliberateness in psychoanalytic technique. This is psychoanalytic discourse at its best.
