Inquiries in Psychoanalysis: Collected papers of Edna O’Shaughnessy

O’Shaughnessy, E. and Rusbridger, R. (ed). 2014. Routledge.

All the highly influential writings of Edna O’Shaughnessy demonstrate her engagement with the nature of psychic reality and subjectivity, and the psychic limits of endurance and reparation. This selection of papers makes clear O’Shaughnessy’s important contributions to theories about personality, the superego, psychic refuges and the Oedipus complex, among others. A record of clinical work and thinking over sixty years of psychoanalytic practice, this will be valuable for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and students.
