Dear Coleagues:

As Gilbert Kliman reminds us, Thanksgiving Day in the USA is also The Day of Mourning observed at Plymouth in Massachusetts. This typifies our collective ubiquitous unconscious ambivalence about life and society. It is amply reflected this week on the international psychoanalytic website. I have chosen some posts to illustrate this. Please read those of your choosing and leave your comments for all our colleagues world wide.

My choices this week are:

1) The stellar book review by Nathan Szajnberg of the remarkable book “The Rangell Reader” is a must for all!

2) I recommend the interviews with Wilfred Bion and Brent Potter, as well the the video “Sybil:A Brilliant Hysteric?”
