On private madness by André Green( )

29 editions published between 1986 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andre Green occupies a unique position in psychoanalysis today, and his work represents a synthesis of the traditions of Lacan, Winnicott and Bion. This volume collects fourteen of his papers together with a substantial introduction. The papers range widely across clinical and theoretical issues including borderline states, the true and false self, and narcissism. On Private Madness has achieved the status of a modern psychoanalytic classic, and this new impression will be welcomed by all those admirers of Dr Green who wish to have these seminal papers collected together
The chains of eros : the sexual in psychoanalysis by André Green( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 1,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author, a leading figure in contemporary psychoanalytic theory, deplores the absence of sexuality and the erotic from current psychoanalytic theory and practice. Instead, he demonstrates how human sexuality forms an 'erotic chain'. The work of analysis, he argues, consists in following the dynamic movements of the erotic process, by ascertaining its links with other aspects of the psyche.The authorre-visits many previously neglected or ignored areas of psychoanalytic debate, including the complicated relationship between pleasure and reproduction, and the links between psychoanalysis, anthropology, and biology. He also embarks on extensive and radical re-readings of Klein, Winnicott, Lacan, and other major psychoanalytic thinkers
Illusions et désillusions du travail psychanalytique by André Green( )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and French and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illusions and Disillusions of Psychoanalytic Work recounts and explores the disappointing and sometimes tragic evolutions of the treatments of certain patients who are resistant to the effects of analytic work. In this book Andre Green reports cases taken from his own experience and that of his collaborators. He points out moreover, that such cases have never been absent from the series of analysands that he has treated, from the early days of his practice up until today, without minimizing his counter-transference reactions or their possible impact on these disappointing evolutions
Resonance of suffering : countertransference in non-neurotic structures by André Green( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some sixty years after the ""Controversial Discussions"" in the early 40s, this passionate book resurrects their spirit on a global scale. Under Andre Green's generous, tactful yet strong leadership, a small discussion group of noteworthy analysts of the International Psychoanalytical Association, coming from all the theoretical and geographical regions in today's psychoanalytic Babel, met several times over three years in order to deal, by way of the detailed discussion of their clinical experiences, with what to many of those involved was and still is a polemical concept: that of the borderl
Play and reflection in Donald Winnicott's writings by André Green( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Winnicott Clinic of Psychotherapy was founded in 1969 and since 2000 has concentrated on the wider dissemination of the work and ideas of Dr Donald W. Winnicott (1896-1971), the distinguished English paediatrician, child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst
Clinical and observational psychoanalytic research : roots of a controversy by Rosemary Davies( )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and French and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few topics elicit greater controversy within psychoanalysis today than the role of research in justifying or expanding upon analytic theory. The text collects papers from a London conference, along with additional material, to explore the work of discussants Daniel Stern and Andre Green. Stern, whose work and psychoanalysis and infant observation is world-renowned, and Green, the French psychoanalyst whose trenchant views on the limitations of research are equally well known, each focus on the issue of infant research and its long history within the psychoanalytic movement. Additional discussions by three prominent British psychoanalysts, Anne Alvarez, Irma Brenman Pick, and Rozine Jozef Perelberg, expose a different point of view from that of green and Stern. Also included is a previous debate on this topic between Andre Green and Robert S. Wallerstein, former president of the International Psychoanalytic Association. An illuminating introductory chapter by Riccardo Steiner further describes the main points of the debate with marvelous clarity. This book will be invaluable for all those who wish to involve themselves with contemporary views on this important topic
Love and its vicissitudes by André Green( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and its Vicissitudes moves beyond conventional psychoanalytic discourse to provide a stimulating and revealing reflection on the place of love in psychoanalytic theory and practice. In Part I, 'To Love or Not to Love - Eros and Eris', Andre Green addresses some important questions: What is essential to love in life? What, in the psychoanalytic method, is related to it? Should we understand love by referring to its earliest and most primitive roots? Or should we take as our starting point the experience of the adult? He argues that while science has made no contribution to our understanding of love, art, literature and especially poetry are the best introduction to it. In Part II, Love in the Time of Madness, Gregorio Kohon provides a detailed clinical study of an individual suffering a psychotic breakdown. He describes how the exclusive as well as the intense lasting dependence to a primary carer create the conditions for a "normal madness" to develop. This is not only at the source of later psychotic states and the perversions but also at the origin of all forms of love, as demonstrated in its re-appearance in the situation of transference
The tragic effect : the Oedipus complex in tragedy by André Green( Book )

48 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Key ideas for a contemporary psychoanalysis : misrecognition and recognition of the unconscious by André Green( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Green attempts the complex task of identifying and examining the key ideas for a contemporary psychoanalytic practice. This undertaking is motivated both by the need for an outline of the evolution of psychoanalysis since Freud's death, and by the hope of tackling the fragmentation which has led to the current 'crisis of psychoanalysis'."--Jacket
Life narcissism, death narcissism by André Green( Book )

45 editions published between 1982 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El narcisismo fue --dice André Green-- "en cierto modo un paréntesis en el pensamiento de Freud. La sexualidad es la constante indestronable de la teoría íntegra del inventor del psicoanálisis, pero su poder es de continuo cuestionado por una fuerza adversa que, por su parte, experimentó cambios con el paso de los años. Antes del narcisismo fueron las pulsiones de autoconservación; después, las pulsiones de muerte". Si el narcisismo en general es considerado sólo en sus aspectos positivos, en virtud de los cuales se lo refiere a las pulsiones sexuales de vida, Green muestra, en cambio, la necesidad de postular la existencia de un narcisismo de muerte, que él denomina "narcisismo negativo". Los trabajos aquí reunidos intentan, de manera implícita o explícita, pensar las relaciones entre narcisismo y pulsión de muerte. A diferencia del narcisismo de vida, que está dirigido al cumplimiento de la unidad del yo, el narcisismo de muerte, por lo contrario, tiende a su abolición en la aspiración al cero. Esta teoría del narcisismo se completa con la exposición de algunas "formas narcisistas" observadas en la práctica clínica: "La prevalencia del narcisismo en ciertos cuadros clínicos abona la suposición de que en el seno del aparato psíquico existe una instancia cuya fortaleza es bastante como para reunir en torno a sí investiduras de índole idéntica, todas las cuales poseen características diferenciadas en medida suficiente como para justificar que se las distinga. No se sigue de esto, por necesidad, que la formación de las estructuras narcisistas obedezca a un desarrollo enteramente separado, movido por fuerzas intrínsecas e independiente de las pulsiones orientadas hacia el objeto". Para finalizar, un ensayo sobre el yo pone de relieve la duplicidad que está en la base de su estructura, en la contradicción entre saberse mortal y creerse inmortal. Así, todo confluye en Narciso Jano

Time in psychoanalysis : some contradictory aspects by André Green( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time is a traditional theme in philosophy and a fundamental theme in psychoanalysis. The wealth of studies devoted to the former contrasts strikingly with their scarcity in the latter. Over more than 40 years, Freud elaborated different hypotheses on the conception of time in psychoanalysis. His speculations contained numerous different aspects: a developmental point of view (the libido theory) involving fixations and regressions, the process of retroaction, dreams as a form of indirect recollection, the timelessness of the unconscious, the function played by primal phantasies in categorizing experience and, finally, repetition compulsion. His investigations ultimately led him to the concept of historical truth which, unfortunately, has since been neglected. Taken together, these hypotheses form a complex theory of temporality, a genuine diachronic heterogeneity, justifying its description as fragmented time. In this book, the author sets out to restore the full richness of a theory which contemporary psychoanalysis has progressively tended to simplify with the aim of taming it and returning to a linear, homogenous conception of time
