Review by:
Richard B. Simpson

It was with some disquiet that I decided to review this book. The task is to say something useful to an audience of American psychoanalysts about a book that records an encounter between the psychoanalytic cultures of France and the United States. I was initially skeptical about the book's apparently simple apposition of “self” and “subject.” I was also aware of my own sense of alienation from the current trends in psychoanalysis in America. Yet, alienation could perhaps be a starting point to orient myself to speak to potential readers of this book.
