    Book details


Some comments on the first publication in 2003: There is a sea change afoot in contemporary psychoanalysis and this brilliant volume is a manifesto of it. When brain science and clinical psychoanalysis are put on exactly equal conceptual footing fascinating possibilities emerge with an intoxicating clarity. Fred Levin's remarkable volume makes evident how psychoanalysis is thinking its way into the future. Psychoanalysis has collected a virtual Tower of Babel of facts. Levin artfully rearranges this vast material, offering a glimpse into a theoretical integration only dreamed of a few years ago. Arnold Wilson, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Seton Hall University, New Jersey; Faculty, Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, New York. This book provides a coherent, entirely readable account of an exciting new area of research regarding brain science and psychoanalysis. Comprehensive and groundbreaking, accessible to clinicain and scientists alike, Fred Levin's volume will become essential reading for anyone seriously concerned with the foundations of psychoanalysis. His study of neurobiology and human behavior places both on equal footing while respecting the fundamental dignity of the patient in the clinical situation. Bertram J. Cohler, Ph.D., William Rainey Harper Professor of Human Development, the University of Chicago.

"There is a sea change afoot in contemporary psychoanalysis and this brilliant volume is a manifesto of it.

Cohler, Ph.D., William Rainey Harper Professor of Human Development)"If one would call this a work of bridge building, then it is a Rialto Bridge upon which one may find jewels to buy. Fred Levin has not developed these ideas in isolation, however; instead he has refined them through presentations and collaborations with other theorists, clinicians, and investigators, to arrive at fresh insights into when and how to facilitate learning in psychoanalysis. He has built connecting islands perceived as the same city-state of mind and brain." (David Forrest, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Consultant to Neurology, and Faculty, Psychoanalytic Center, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York; and Past President) Fred M. Levin is Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago and Evanston, Illinois. He is a member of the International Psychoanalytic Association; the American Psychoanalytic Association; the American Psychiatric Association (life fellow); American College of Psychoanalysts (honorary organization, Past President, and fellow) and several other organizations in Europe and Japan. He has contributed to nearly 100 publications and written a number of books, including: Mapping the Mind (1991), Psyche and Brain (2003) and Psychotherapy Pearls (2006).
