Whose Bion? Who is Bion? Language Translation

Elizabeth Tabak De Bianchedi

What I have said about the psycho-analytical sessions I consider applies to the experience of reading psycho-analytic work. Freud's paper should be read, and ‘forgotten’. Only in this way is it possible to produce the conditions in which, when it is next read, it can stimulate the evolution of further development. There is time to do this only with the best papers; but only the best papers have the power to stimulate a defensive reading (of what the paper is about) as a substitute for experiencing the paper itself—what I have elsewhere called Transformation under K as contrasted with Transformation under O.

(Bion, Second thoughts, 1967, p. 156)
