In this volume, psychoanalyst and poet Salman Akhtar directs his attention to recent books by Leo Rangell, Otto Kernberg, Stefano Bolognini, Madeleine and Willy Baranger, Osamu Kitayama, Andrea Celenza, Peter Rudnytsky, and Andrea Sabbadini, among others. Taking the views of these distinguished analytic scholars as a starting point, Akhtar addresses topics as diverse as a core unifying theory of psychoanalysis, inseparability of love and hate, man-dog relationship, time and space, erotic countertransference, Freud’s authoritarianism, and the mythic animal to human transformation across cultures. Casting his net wide, Akhtar familiarizes his readers with psychoanalytic literature not only from North America and Europe but also from Latin America, Asia, and Australia. No Holds Barred is a great introduction to the current trends and regional nuances of psychoanalysis across the globe.
