This collection proposes that using Winnicott’s work to think about themes of importance to practitioners now is also a way of thinking about some of the present preoccupations of psychoanalysis .How certain themes assume an importance and develop at certain times often resonates with debates of the past and to encounter them in the present almost always offer something new. Theoretical and clinical ideas are produced in particular conditions and often also in response to, or as part of, a certain intellectual and socio-cultural context; how they have come to be understood and how they have their effect also involves that wider world and its interests.

Lesley Caldwell is the editor of the Winnicott Studies Monograph Series, and the editor of Winnicott Studies. From 2000-2003 she was director of the Squiggle Foundation. She is a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Italian at University College London and works as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice.
