The Oedipus Complex Today: Clinical Implications

Britton, R. S., Feldman, M., and O’Shaughnessy, E. Steiner J. (ed.) 1989. Karnac

With an introduction by Hanna Segal, this book includes Klein’s 1945 paper, ‘The Oedipus Complex in the Light of Early Anxieties’, as well as papers by Ronald Britton, Michael Feldman, and Edna O’Shaughnessy. They all deal with the expression and analysis of aspects of the Oedipus complex in current clinical work, including the way the Oedipus situation structures the analytic situation.
