Review:

"This work constitutes an outstanding piece of Bion scholarship and interpretation. One comes away from it with a deep appreciation for the authors dreaming of Bion's work and for the light she has shined on many of Bion's more recondite themes." (James Grotstein MD, Professor of Psychiatry)

“Bion’s introduction of a new model of the mind was a ‘catastrophic change’, a change that in Thomas Kuhn’s terms was a ‘scientific revolution’. Lia Pistiner de Cortiñas invites us to enter into the psychoanalytic world that stemmed from this revolution, and to explore its theoretical and clinical landscapes. She unfolds Bion’s ideas in a very clear language and focuses her own developments on the ‘dream like’ way of thinking he described, which allows the transformations of very primitive feelings into emotions and thoughts and gives an aesthetic dimension to the human mind.” (Didier Houzel, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

“Lia Pistiner de Cortiñas stresses the significance of the analyst’s achievement in developing and using within the session, his or her capability to ‘dream’ the patient’s ‘dream’. This quality in an analyst is the basic mental equipment in the clinical practice of psychoanalysis. Evidence of this subtle activity, which the author more specifically relates with dream-work alpha, is presented via illustrations of her clinical practice in the last two chapters. In Prenatal Aspects of the Mind, the use of models from theatre and literature as ‘personifications’ gains prominence. These appear as aesthetic tools that allow the analyst to obtain flexibility and binocular vision. The analyst can thereby collaborate with re-establishing the conditions for the patient’s viability, autonomy and mental growth.” (Antonio Sapienza, Psychoanalyst)
