Reason and Passion: A Celebration of the Work of Hanna Segal

Bell, D. (ed.) 1997. Duckworth.

Hanna Segal was a major figure in the development of Kleinian thought, and her first two books on Melanie Klein are classic texts. She made seminal contributions to the understanding of psychosis, the theory of symbolism, aesthetics, literature and politics. Reason and Passion was produced in her honour, with papers by a group of internationally renowned psychoanalysts reflecting on various aspects of her work. Each paper makes a contribution to furthering Segal’s theoretical and clinical ideas. This is the first of two volumes in the Tavistock Clinic Series examining her work.
