“The book’s strength lies in the quality and breadth of insights and experience offered by Green. As such, it gives the reader a method to conceptualise and create a language to describe the phenomenology observed....Green’s main contributions lies in the clarification and conceptualisation of psychoanalytic findings and in developing a language that contributes greatly to psychoanalytic thought and its metapsychology.
