Review quote

This book . . . takes a most unusual and interesting approach-writers from a very wide range of contemporary psychoanalytic schools comment on the same cases, drawn from a consistent context. Will our psychoanalytic approaches turn out to be refracted by this lens into a whole range of diversity, perhaps even contradiction? Or will we find out that plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose? That perhaps when a range of psychoanalysts think about a person, described-crucially-in a particular way by his or her analyst, they tend to converge on certain key concepts and ways of characterizing that person's core self and identity? Thanks to Dr. Huppertz, we shall see! -- Mary Target, University College London
