Example text

This misconception is based on the lack of understanding of the body-mind unity sustained by most psychoanalytic thinkers. Two important contributions that refined and expanded Klein’s ideas on guilt and the positions were presented in 1963 at the 23rd International Psycho-Analytical Congress in Sweden, by León Grinberg and Virgínia Leone Bicudo, founding member of the Sao Pablo Psychoanalytic Society. Bicudo, in “Persecutory guilt and ego restrictions”, draws our attention to an alternative to Klein’s description of the shift from paranoid to depressive positions and vice versa.

Emilio Rodrigué, one of the most creative and prolific Latin American analysts, was one of the chosen to contribute to New directions in psychoanalysis (1957, Basic Books), a collection of 11 of the essays published by the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis in 1952 to celebrate Mrs. Klein’s 70th birthday. In keeping with the aim of this book to make new sources accessible to readers in English, we did not include his seminal paper “The analysis of a three year old mute schizophrenic”, already widely available in English.

The choice of papers is our exclusive responsibility. It is our intention to provide a foundation to explore further our rich psychoanalytic tradition. Through our selection we want to show how the diverse theories influenced our pioneers and what core concepts informed each pioneer. We hope the readers will share our sense of how necessary and relevant many of these papers are today, even though they have been around for decades. Unfortunately, many important papers cannot be included in a volume like this.
