W. R. D. Fairbairn was both a precursor and an architect of revolutionary change in psychoanalysis.  Through a handful of tightly reasoned papers written in the 1940s and 1950s, Fairbairn emerged as an incisive, albeit relatively obscure, voice in the wilderness, at considerable remove from mainstream Freudian and Kleinian psychoanalysis.  But in the 1970s Harry Guntrip made Fairbairn's thinking more accessible to a wide readership, and Fairbairn's object relations theory, with its innovative theoretical and clinical concepts, was at the center of the turn toward relational thinking that swept psychoanalysis in the 1980s and 1990s.

Fairbairn, Then and Now is a landmark volume, because a thorough grasp of Fairbairn's contribution is crucial to any understanding of what is taking place within psychoanalysis today.  And Fairbairn's work remains a treasure trove of rich insights into the problems and issues in theory and clinical practice with which analysts and therapists are struggling today.

This is a particularly propitious time for renewed focus on Fairbairn's contribution.  A wealth of previously unpublished material has recently emerged, and the implications of Fairbairn's ideas for current developments in trauma, dissociation, infant research, self theory, field theory, and couple and family therapy are becoming increasingly clear.  The conference that stimulated the contributions to this volume by internationally eminent Fairbairn clinicians and scholars was a historically important event, and Fairbairn, Then and Now makes the intellectual ferment generated by this event available to all interested readers.

Neil J. Skolnick, Ph.D., is Associate Professor, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University, and a faculty member and supervisor at the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.  He is co-editor of Relational Perspectives in Psychoanalysis (Analytic Press, 1992).

Review:

"Read Klein's paper on paranoid-schizoid phenomena, Winnicott's elaboration of early mental life, Kohut's account of the self struggling for unity, or even Lacan's critique of traditional ego psychology, and you find glimmerings of Fairbairnian ideas at key junctures.  With the emergence of each new generations of analysts, Fairbairn receives wider recognition and greater acclaim not only for his discovery of the repressed object, but increasingly for his psychology of the split ego; this latter notion has resurfaced as perhaps the central character in contemporary accounts of the unconscious landscape.  For any reader seeking to conprehend Fairbairn's contribution fully, to gain insight into their significance and structure, this thoughtfully edited volume will be invaluable.  The contributors draw out hiterto unexamined and underappreciated aspects of Fairbairn's work."

- Charles Spezzano, Ph.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California

"Fairbairn, Then and Now is an exciting, panoramic exposition and appreciation of Fairbairn's work and ideas.  It charts his nodal position in the unfolding developmental history of psychoanalysis, including the ever-widening ramifications of his work for all the contemporaneous relational currents that mark the present-day paradigmatic shift in American psychoanalysis.  Several contributors offer impresive modifications and extensions of Fairbairnian thinking, while exploring its similarities to, and divergences from, the theorizing of such major British contemporaries as Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, and D. W. Winnicott.  And most important, this volume is an impressive expression of, and addition to, the current reassertion of Fairbairn's status, long neglected as a (and perhaps the) seminal innovator of the object-relational (and self) paradigm that has so altered the American psychoanalytic landscape of the past two decades."

- Robert S. Wallerstein, M.D., Former President, International Psychoanalytic Association and American Psychoanalytic Association
