Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Review by:
Stefano Bolognini

Winnicott's work and his school of psychoanalysis have enjoyed, over the past few decades, growing success outside the UK. This has given rise to an interesting series of ‘readings’ which could be described as ‘national’, as they explore the Middle Group's vital contributions in countries with strong theoretical and clinical traditions, relating them with a varying degree of success to the local psychoanalytic fabric.

There is no doubt that Winnicott's ideas and those of many of his followers, because of their intermediary role and transformational potential, lend themselves to being cross-referenced and at times fruitfully married with other ideas. We can give as examples a French reading of Winnicott, especially by André Green, and an Argentinean reading, in which certain authors assimilate with highly original results Winnicottian concepts to Lacan's contributions, in spite of appearing to be in conflict with them.

This book, edited by Paolo Fabozzi, discusses in a broad and highly representative way the trajectory of Italian psychoanalysis resulting from Winnicott's work. The outcome is most successful, particularly because the authors respect the underlying spirit of the texts they refer to; or, to be more specific, the atmosphere of clinical work here described—as compared with what I referred to as ‘national’ readings— comes closest to the moods, colours and flavours we can detect in the relationships established by the English master and his followers in their analytic work.
