In the half-century since his death, the Hungarian analyst Sandor Ferenczi has amassed a large following within the psychoanalytic community. During his lifetime Ferenczi, an associate and friend of Freud, proposed widely disputed ideas that influenced the evolution of modern psychoanalytic technique and practice. This text provides an edited version of Ferenczi's clinical diary. In a sequence of short, condensed entries, it records self-critical reflections on conventional theory - as well as criticisms of Ferenczi's own experiments with technique - and his struggle to divest himself and psychoanalysis of professional hypocrisy.

Reviews

Compelling...Ferenczi was an innovator, an experimenter, someone who was always trying new approaches to the treatment of mental illness, even when his unorthodox techniques placed him in opposition to his analyst and mentor, Sigmund Freud. -- Stuart Schneiderman New York Times Book Review Allows the public to assess, far better than before, the range of [Ferenczi's] professional gifts and the depth of his psychological vulnerability...A welcome addition to the growing number of significant texts illuminating the history of psychoanalysis. -- Peter Gay London Review of Books The Diary is the work of a sane mind in full possession of its powers and gives us insight into the day-to-day thoughts of a practitioner whose status as a creative innovator is probably unsurpassed since Freud. It is a very moving book. One is continually amazed by the courage of the man. -- Peter Lomas Times Literary Supplement Freud criticised his one-time favourite son for advocating the 'kissing technique', Ferenzci believed that 'only sympathy heals'. This is the 1932 record of his analyses. His work was faltering, doubting, and quite possibly, healing. -- David Flusfeder The Week
