Clinical Lectures on Klein and Bion

Anderson, R. (ed.) 1991. New Library of Psychoanalysis, Routledge

This collection outlines the fundamental ideas in the two analysts’ thinking, and shows how they can be used to tackle clinical problems. Originally a series of lectures aimed at the general public, these papers cover major ideas developed by Klein and Bion, such as: child analysis; unconscious phantasy; projective identification; the paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions; Bion’s study of psychotic thinking; and the concept of container/contained.
