Review by:
Isabelle Martin Kamieniak

Under the title Éros et Antéros, over 40 years ago, in 1971, Denise Braunschweig and Michel Fain first published their “psychoanalytic reflections on sexuality”. Both training analysts of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society, they thereby instigated a collaboration that was to continue in 1975 with the publication of La nuit, le jour, their remarkable essay on mental functioning. This work is a milestone in psychoanalytic thought, if only for their key proposition - “the censorship-of-the-mother-as lover” - which forms the pivot of their model of the birth of psychic life. The decade from 1960 to 1970 witnessed a blossoming of a great many theoretical propositions and debates within the French psychoanalytic world, generated by the schism with Jacques Lacan and the social unrest. Reading or rereading these authors provides an immersion in this valuable period experienced by the psychoanalytic movement, especially in France.

By bringing out a new edition of Éros et Antéros, with an elegant cover that displays Canova's sculpture, the erotic ‘Amour et Psyché’, Editions In Press offers psychoanalysts today an opportunity to rediscover the vitality of that period, the boldness of these thinkers, with their searching analyses and rigorous thinking.
