editorial review
Frank Summers is one of the most brilliant, forward-edge psychoanalytic theorists writing today. "The Psychoanalytic Vision" offers a profound re-visioning of both the psychoanalytic process and the modern experiencing subject. A must-read not only for practioners but also cultural theorists and anyone seeking to proble the depths of human experience.
John Riker, Professer of Philosophy
Colorado College
This book is a deeply human and impassioned plea for a vision of psychoanalysis rooted in the subjective. Frank Summers eloquently addresses the implications of his vision for both theory and technique, locating his ideas in a critique of contemporary culture that is richly illustrated in his clinical vignettes. Summers' is a compelling and inspiring contemporary voice.
