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.
