Sándor Ferenczi: El mejor discípulo de Freud [Sándor Ferenczi: Freud's best disciple] by Antoni Talarn Madrid: Biblioteca Nueva. 2003. 380 pp.

Review by:
Neri Daurella

It is only in the last few years that a notable phenomenon has occurred in our profession: the rediscovery of an author as fundamental to the development of psychoanalysis as Sándor Ferenczi, after more than 50 years of going almost unnoticed. Among other developments, Ferenczi appeared at the origins of object-relations theory, of the re-evaluation of traumatic factors in the understanding of psychopathology, of the elasticity of contemporary psychoanalytic technique, of the assessment of the analyst's person as one of the determining factors in what goes on in the relational field constituted by analyst and analysand, and of North American intersubjectivity. But, until the publication of his Clinical diary (Dupont, 1988), Ferenczi was an author who had disappeared from psychoanalytic training institutes. He was so little cited in bibliographies that, of Melanie Klein's two analysts, Ferenczi and Abraham, only the latter deserved an entry in Hinshelwood (1989). In contrast, since the publication of Dupont (1988) and of the Freud-Ferenczi correspondence (Brabant et al., 1994; Falzeder et al., 1996, 2000), a true rediscovery has taken place, reflected in congresses, publications and many references to his influence on contemporary psychoanalysis.

This book by Antoni Talarn, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the University of Barcelona, is the Spanish expression of this phenomenon.
