101 engaging, inspirational, and amusing tales from renowned psychoanalyst and writer Dr Salman Akhtar to mark the truly magnificent accomplishment of achieving a century!
Full of penetrating insight into the quest for ‘truth’ and the meaning of life, Jayne Hankinson applies psychoanalytic theory to enable a deeper understanding of the creation myths that exist for each and every one of us. First Thoughts builds on the traditions established by the visionary W. R. Bion to present a philosophical and spiritual odyssey to inspire and enjoy.
Taking its inspiration from Freud’s The Uncanny and building on Bion’s idea of vertices, this book brings together psychoanalytic and literary theory, case vignettes, fiction, history of ideas, and science and culture to expand commonly used terms such as regret, candour, autonomy, and parasitism and further the conversation between disciplines.
