Bion and Sullivan: An Enlightening Comparison

Marco Conci, M.D.

The author compares the life and work of two pioneers and major sources of inspiration to the contemporary psychoanalytic debate: W.R. Bion (1897-1979) and H.S. Sullivan (1892-1949). Both their life and their work show similarities that allow the author to illuminate and constructively compare the one with the other. The author proposes his work as a useful exercise in the field of “comparative psychoanalysis,” an important key for the reconstruction of the history of our field and for a more scientifically coherent articulation of its theories.
