About the Author

Antonino Ferro is a training and supervising analyst in the Italian Psychoanalytical Society (SPI), of which he is the former president, the American Psychoanalytic Association, and the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA). He has been a visiting professor of psychoanalysis in various institutions in Europe, North America, South America and Australia. He received the Sigourney Award in 2007.


"The fecundity of an author can be gauged by the fertility of the issues their reflections generate and the richness of the solutions their thinking makes available to their readership. It is through this prism that one should approach this masterful new work. In it Ferro takes his reader on a tour of some of his core preoccupations, from the peculiarity of psychoanalysis itself to the mental phenomenon of evacuative manifestations. The unifying thread is Ferro's ferociously unique voice and style of thinking, suffused in equal parts with his Bionian background and his own liveliness, clarity and creativity."
-Elias da Rocha Barros, Training Analyst, Sao Paulo Psychoanalytic Society, Brazil; Fellow, British Psychoanalytic Society "Nino Ferro's talent is inimitable. This new book is full of subtle clinical examples and demonstrates his imaginative skill and deep playfulness, squiggling with serious intent and an unparalleled sensitivity to the complex field of human interaction in the clinical setting. "
-David Tuckett, Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytical Society; Professor and Director of the Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty, Psychoanalysis Unit, University College London, UK "Antonino Ferro invites us to think differently by offering a rich book, generous of examples of his way of swimming in the field co-created by the analyst and the analysand. His perspective moves away from content to address the process and the tools available for dreaming, thinking and feeling. If he walks in the footsteps of the Baranger and Bion, he is distinctively himself with his own style of walking and deepening the exploration. Dr. Ferro gives us a stimulating example of how psychoanalysis remains in movement!"
