Description - Andre Green at the Squiggle Foundation by Jan Abram

Andre Green is one of the most renowned psychoanalysts working today, but until recently much of his work has been inaccessible to the Anglophone world. This book, consisting of five lectures delivered to The Squiggle Foundation in London, aims to rectify that. The Squiggle Foundation has as its goal "to study and cultivate the tradition of D.W. Winnicott", and has achieved an international reputation in doing so. Dr. Green's lectures touch particularly on the links between his thought and that of Winnicott - as can be seen from the lecture titles: "Experience and Thinking in Analytic Practice", "Object(s) and Subject", "On Thirdness", "The Posthumous Winnicott: On Human Nature", and the Intuition of the Negative in Playing and Reality". The book also contains an introduction by Jan Abram, setting out the main currents of Green's thought, and describing his long and fruitful relationship with The Squiggle Foundation. Clearly written and easily understood, the lectures provide a unique introduction to the work of Green and Winnicott, two of the foremost practitioners and authors that psychoanalysis has produced. Andre Green is a Training Analyst for the Paris Psychoanalytic Society. His books include On Private Madness (reprinted by Karnac Books in 1997), The Tragic Effect, and The Work of the Negative. A festschrift for him, The Dead mother (ed. Gregorio Kohon), was published in 1999.
