Summary and Info
The final book in the three-volume series, A Clinical Application of Bion’s Concepts is divided in four parts. Part I, through the aid of a transdisciplinary study between psycho-analysis, mathematics, and physics, proposes four expanded variations of Bion’s epistemological tool, The Grid. Part II is a study of the most elemental bearings of the psycho-analytic clinic—free associations and free floating attention—which evolves from the study of Dreams, under the contributions of Bion (presented in volume I), as well as from the study of the analytic function and the function of the analyst (presented in volume II). In Part III, Sandler shows how the pursuit of truth can be seen as one of the purposes of the psycho-analytic investigation in the clinic. Part IV presents Sandler’s proposals for expanding the observational power of existing Bion’s theories.
