Introduction

This is the second of two volumes on the theme of learning from patients. In the 1985 volume I focused on the interactional processes in the analytic relationship in order to illustrate the patient's unconscious contributions to the analytic work, and to show that theory is not just applied in clinical work - it is also rediscovered. In this volume I continue to explore that earlier theme, and also to highlight some further issues that are related to the analytic process.
