Ritual and Spontaneity in the Psychoanalytic Process
by Irwin Z. Hoffman, Ph.D.
In this sweeping overview of current psychoanalytic thinking, thirty of America's foremost psychoanalysts have chosen what they consider their most significant papers-key writings that reconstruct the theoretical framework of psychoanalysis and our understanding of the therapeutic situation. "Contemporary Psychoanalysis in America" is a "best of the best" volume-cutting-edge work that covers the systematization of theory, including its application to problems of development and culture.
