Hymenality in psychoanalysis: A reading of Boundaries and bridges: Perspectives on time and space in psychoanalysis

Giuseppe Civitarese

More Than Just a Job could be the subtitle of these notes on reading Andrea Sabbadini's book, Boundaries and Bridges: Perspectives on Time and Space in Psychoanalysis (henceforth BB). The expression, which the author uses to explain what psychoanalysis represents for him, echoes Bion's famous ‘Making the best of a bad job’. There is something that unites the two expressions at a deep level, and which I would certainly suggest has the features of a profound ethical position. What do I mean by this? That both authors feel that they are engaged in something very serious and very important. All work is noble, of course, but as analysts we are concerned with human suffering.
