Reviews

"Ogden succeeds beautifully in finding in texts by Sigmund Freud, Susan Isaacs, W. R. D. Fairbairn, Donald Winnicott, Wilfred Bion, Hans Loewald, and Harold Searles more than what was there before he read them. He shows us how in the process of reading their words and sentences creatively, we, readers, not only discover new meanings to these words and sentences, but, most importantly, we are changed in the process of discovering them." - Mufid James Hannush, Journal of Phenomenological Psychology, 43, 2012

"[Ogden] invites us to pay particular attention to something obvious and that perhaps we all do, consciously or preconsciously when we read any author: that is, to attend carefully to our own reading of the text and the relationship we establish with the work and the ideas it elicits in us as active readers. In this sense, this book is not only interesting, stimulation and enriching for the papers that Ogden has commented on, but also for the invitation he makes to all of us to pay attention to what we do when we read. I do recommend it highly." - Carlos Fishman, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, September 2013

Ogden's latest book, Creative Readings: Essay on Seminal Analytic Works, leads the reader straight to experience one of the main features of the psychoanalytic process, which in this case is applied to written text. Ogden achieved remarkable prominence in the art of analytic writing and supervising, to which he applied his fresh and lively style that allows new understandings to be discovered. His work is never stilted and is usually captivating and evocative. Through the deep affective resonance of the text, new meanings are brought forward and fresh understandings can take place within the reader's inner world. - Moscato & Solano, Psychoanalytic Psychology, Vol. 30 No. 3 2013

"Over the past three decades, Thomas Ogden has been a prolific contributor to the psychoanalytic literature, setting forth in detail and with substantial erudition his particular object-relational conception of analytic theory and practice. The present volume extends that project in a frankly didactic direction as he offers the reader the product of his close readings of the work of important historical figures, from Freud through Bion to Searles, centering his attention on such matters as the Oedipus complex, the role of fantasy in mental function, and the niceties of transference-countertransference interaction." The Psychoanalytic Quarterly.

"He offers the reader the product of his close readings of the work of important historical figures, from Freud through Bion to Searles, centering his attention on such matters as the Oedipus complex, the role of fantasy in mental function, and the niceties of transference-countertransference interaction" -Ellen Handler Spitz, PhD, Writer, Lecturer, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
