A Paradigm for Clinical Thinking

By Andre Green

Contributions by: Andrew Weller

Thought inhabits diverse fields of activity. It can be philosophical, scientific, or religious. But, unless it renounces the theoretical exigency underlying it, it cannot invest the domain of clinical work. How should the mode of rationality arising from psychoanalytic practice be qualified? How is the work of thought involved in the experience of the treatment to be accounted for? In this book, now back in print, Andre Green shows how it is possible to introduce the concept of "clinical thinking" into psychoanalysis. Postulating modifications to the clinical pictures on which Freud's work was constructed, the author contributes innovations and answers that the father of psychoanalysis could not have foreseen.
