Une part de soi dans la vie des autres (A Part of Oneself in the Life of Others). By Danièle Brun. Paris: Odile Jacob, 2015, 162 pp., €22.90 paperback.

Review by:
Rachel Widawsky

Danièle Brun is an eminent French psychoanalyst whose work has explored feminine identity and gender issues in a series of books. Professor Emerita of Psychology at the University of Paris-Diderot, she is the founder of the Research Center of Psychoanalysis, Medicine, and Society. A Part of Oneself in the Life of Others, her most recent work, is a long essay in which she explores the intricacies between her clinical practice over the years and her personal life.

The interest and the difficulty in reviewing this work is that its discourse lies at the intersection of theory, clinical practice, and subjective association. In its intimate style and hybrid form, the essay reflects the three components of our daily psychoanalytic interventions. Thus, the tone of intimacy mixed with her subtle theoretical touch brings the reading of this book close to the analytic experience.
