This title is unavailable to order from Caversham.

This book has a very simple aim: to provide, in a single collection, an overview of the lifework and thought of five of the most gifted, insightful and provocative thinkers in contemporary psychoanalysis. Conducted and compiled by Anthony Molino over the course of two years, these interviews probe beyond the biographical to illustrate connections between life experience and the broad-ranging philosophical concerns and clinical applications of an ever-evolving psychoanalysis. Freely Associated is a compelling invitation to anyone engaged in or by psychoanalysis to explore the state of Freud's 'impossible profession'. -- from the publisher

'Psychoanalysis just have to survive "the psychoanalytic movement". If it survives psychoanalysts and their schools, then it will grow and develop. But this remains to be seen.' - Christopher Bollas

'Although none of us are responsible for the events of the past, or the unconscious problems of our parents, we are totally reponsible for our inner psychic world. We have organized it and must accept that we own it and thah we alone are in charge of it'. - Joyce McDougall

'Nowadays, I thing of psychoanalysis as an easthetic, as a form of poetry... You have all these psychoanalytic singers and poets trying to express their aesthetic experience.' - Michael Eigen
'Tere is no future for psychoanalysis if it doesn't want to look to other places for regeneration, and particularly if it doesn't look to the places it wants to exlude. By its own logic, that's where the life is, that's where the action is.' - Adam Philips

'I suppose it's rather a contradiction in terms, but I would say that if I have been consiously sensitive to my place in the psychoanalytic tradition, it's been as the most independent representative of an independent group'. - Nina Coltart
