Review by:
Gloria Gitaroff

There are several aspects of this book that render it interesting and useful. In the first place, because it tackles two pathologies that are difficult to reach, that do not belong with classic neuroses and that have increasingly called for a psychoanalytic understanding. In the second place, because all the essays are firmly anchored in clinical practice, which is vividly conveyed, and are followed by comments that enrich them, either through agreement or dissent. Contributors include Samuel Arbiser, Ángel N. Constantino, R. Horacio Etchegoyen, Benito M. López, Jorge L. Maldonado, Carlos E. Moguillansky, Silvia Nussbaum y Guillermo H. Seiguer. Both the authors and their discussants (C. M. Aslan, E. T. de Bianchedi, F. W. de Fisch, M. J. Gálvez, C. R. Nemas de Urman, R. Paz, M. L. Pelento, M. I. Raitzin de Vidal, L. Wender and B. B. Winograd) are very experienced psychoanalysts who belong to various Argentine IPA and FEPAL component societies: Argentine Psychoanalytic Association (APA), Buenos Aires Psychoanalytic Association (APdeBA), Argentine Society of Psychoanalysis (SAP) and the Escuela Argentina de Psicoterapia para Graduados (Argentine Graduate School of Psychotherapy). The book possesses an additional value in that it shows the progress of the ideas of part of the Buenos Aires analytic community in their historical and current value, as well as this community's theoretical pluralism. The essays cannot be ascribed to a single frame of reference or to a specific sphere of the analytic realm.
