Elements of Psychoanalysis

Bion, W. R. 1963. Heinemann. Reprinted by Karnac, 1989.

In this work Bion searches for elements which might be used to express the theories of psychoanalysis. Among such elements are: projective identification, the interplay between the paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions, the relation between container and contained. He also devises an instrument for scanning psychoanalytic material – the Grid.
