Bion in Buenos Aires: Seminars, Case Presentation and Supervision

Aguayo, J., Pistiner de Cortinas, L. and Regeczkey, A. (eds.) 2017. Karnac

These newly discovered clinical seminars by Wilfred Bion – comprising supervisions, case presentations, and lectures on psychoanalytic theory – represent the beginnings of a body of work that has inspired South American analysts for half a century. Bion’s work ranks highly in the current psychoanalytic firmament, and remains deeply relevant for many analysts. The seminars collected here are based on work Bion carried out in Buenos Aires in 1968. They include lectures on his elaborations of his epistemological research, and on the ‘Grid’ and its clinical relevance.
