Hidden Questions, Clinical Musings. By M. Robert Gardner. Hillsdale, NJ/London: The Analytic Press, 1995. 189 pp.

Review by:
Robert M. Chalfin

Gardner's latest book is a collection of papers written over a span of thirty years, both published and unpublished, to which are appended current afterwords. A number were first presented at panels, symposiums, etc., which I think is important as these were words originally spoken and heard rather than read. Words as sounds as well as signifiers and what they evoke about other words, images, and affects are among Gardner's interests in these papers. Language and speech, which is used by him poetically, imaginatively, and metaphorically, is something to which he draws our attention, bringing us closer to words in their sense (as sensory experience) origins. Vision, sounds, feelings are deconstructed and reconstructed via his attentiveness and receptivity to words and images, his own and his patient's.
