The Violence of Interpretation: From Pictogram to Statement

Synopsis

Published in English for the first time, this is a seminal work by an original and creative analytical thinker. The book bridges the work of Winnicott and Lacan, putting forward a theory of psychosis based on children's early experiences. The author's analysis of the relationship between the mother's verbal communication and the organization of the psychic experience of the infant, and of the earliest stage of development of unconscious fantasy starting from the "pictogram", have fundamental implications for the psychoanalytic theory of development.
