Through his previous books, his teaching in the United States and abroad, and his role as founding editor of the journal Psychoanalytic Dialogues, Stephen A. Mitchell was at the forefront of the broad paradigmatic shift in contemporary psychoanalysis from the traditional one-person model to a two-person, interactive, relational perspective. In Influence and Autonomy in Psychoanalysis, Mitchell provides a critical, comparative framework for exploring the broad array of concepts newly developed for understanding interactive processes between analysand and analyst. Drawing on the broad traditions of Kleinian theory and interpersonal psychoanalysis, as well as object relations and progressive Freudian thought, he considers in depth the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis, anachronistic ideals like anonymity and neutrality, the nature of analytic knowledge and authority, and the problems of gender and sexual orientation in the age of postmodernism. How, Mitchell asks, can analytic clinicians best protect the patient's autonomy and integrity in the context of our growing appreciation of the enormous personal impact of the analyst on the process. Although Mitchell explores many facets of the complexity of the psychoanalytic process, he presents his ideas in his customarily lucid, jargon-free style, making this book appealing not only to clinicians with various backgrounds and degrees of experience, but also to lay readers interested in the achievements of, and challenges before, contemporary psychoanalysis. A splendid effort to relate parallel lines of theorizing and derivative changes in clinical practice and informed by mature clinical judgment and broad scholarship into the history of psychoanalytic ideas, Influence and Autonomy in Psychoanalysis takes a well-deserved place alongside Mitchell's previous books. It is a brilliant synthesis of converging insights that have transformed psychoanalysis in our time, and a touchstone for enlightened dialogue as psychoanalysis approaches the millennium.

Recenzii

"Among the issues that matter now to psychoanalysts, none outweighs the one Stephen Mitchell takes up here: how, paradoxically, whatever shred of autonomy each of us has in creating ourselves as human beings might be enhanced by a treatment in which we expect to be influenced by the authority and knowledge of another person. He demonstrates a breathtaking capacity to open up the theoretical labyrinth that has been constructed in the psychoanalytic literature to address this and related questions and to illuminate the clinical situations in which they prove especially troubling. As has been the case for almost two decades, Mitchell keeps his writing hand on the pulse of contemporary psychoanalysis. Influence and Autonomy in Psychoanalysis, like Mitchell's previous books, will be widely read and discussed by admirers and critics alike, and this because Mitchell continues to capture with astonishing precision and prescience, as well as great writing, not only where the cutting edge of
