The cure for psychoanalysis

Phillips, Adam, 1954-2021
Books
Two essays by one of the foremost thinkers in the field of psychoanalysis. In the first essay, 'The Magic of Winnicott', Adam Phillips makes clear the subtlety and wisdom of Winnicott's concept of play. In 'The Cure for Psychoanalysis' he works through psychoanalytic theories about cure and instructs us to take most seriously those that free the analyst and patient to wonder and to take pleasure in the unknowable adventure ahead of them. These two thought-provoking writings frame a discussion between the author and Edward Corrigan, analyst and friend, which offers an intimate portrait of two analysts in conversation, thoughtfully reflecting on traditions that inform Phillips' practice and prolific works.
