This book of two interviews and two essays challenges psychoanalyst to return to the key insight of Freud - that is that the unconscious thinks and that it is not just a repressed set of thoughts or a resistance to change by a ego defence- rather the creativity and capacity of the unconscious to listen and speak is at the heart of the talking cure.

The thing Bollas is so clear at communicating is that psychoanalysis has lost its relationship to the unconscious by either developing its role as an auxiliary ego for the analysand or a fetish focus on the analysis of the transference - Bollas however reminds us that the way in which analysis works is from unconscious to unconscious - or the analysts is really providing an auxiliary unconscious to the analysand.

While this might be new to psychoanalysts this is the core principles of the Jungian classical analytical approach - perhaps if Bollas had read Jung's psychology of the transference (1946) he might have discovered his approach was already clearly spelt out 60 years ago. Perhaps Jung's reply to Freud that the transference was the alpha and omega of the therapy was what Bollas now means?

A fantastic book - full of interesting discussion about the original brilliance of some of Freud's ideas. Beautifully written by Bollas - as always.
