Description

Following Bion's Legacy to Groups (1998), this is a second selection of papers taken from the centenary conference on Bion's work held in Turin in 1997. This volume concentrates on theoretical and clinical psychoanalysis. Contributors: Deocleciano Bendocchi Alves, Francesca Bion, Parthenope Bion Talamo, Emanuele Bonasia, Franco Borgogno, HaydAe Faimberg, Antonino Ferro, AndrA Green, James Grotstein, Isabel Luzuriaga, Alberto Meotti, Silvio A. Merciai, Gianni Nebbiosi, Romolo Petrini, Rosa De Ferreira, Paulo Cesar Sandler, and Elizabeth Tabak De Bianchedi. "'How are we to become wise when so much emphasis is placed on cleverness, on building increasingly complex substitutes for thought? Where does wisdom come on a scale measuring success? ' So writes Francesca Bion, considering her husband's work. A fitting tribute to Bion would be a collection of papers containing passionate attempts at thinking, not substitutes for thought. In this book, concern with psychic life, far from being dead, reaches new places, takes deeper, more nuanced turns. The authors penetrate subtly into our lying ways and soundly appreciate the complexities of our hunger for truth and experience." - Michael Eigen

After schooling in England she went to Italy to study, and later set up in private practice in Turin.
