Donald Winnicott as Theorist: Revolutionary or Paradigm Expander? Donald Winnicott Today. Edited by Jan Abram. New York: Routledge, 2012. 478 pp.

Ralph H. Beaumont

In Donald Winnicott Today, editor Jan Abram, an English psychoanalyst, further develops her already extensive exploration of the work of Donald Winnicott (Abram 2007). She has been a director of the Squiggle Foundation, an organization for the study and dissemination of the work of Winnicott, and she recently gave the Freud Memorial Lecture at England's Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies on issues in Winnicott's late work (Abram 2012).

In the current volume, she brings together a variety of materials bearing on Winnicott's theoretical contributions to psychoanalysis: writings by Winnicott, papers by other authors addressing various aspects of his work, and contributions of her own. Notwithstanding the number and variety of authors involved, this is not a scattered collection of thoughts about its subject. In a scholarly and carefully integrated fashion, Abram has assembled contributions centered on a primary thesis and several related subordinate themes. Her aim is to “demonstrate that Winnicott's contribution constitutes a major revolution in psychoanalysis” (p. 1).
