MEDIA REVIEWS
The author approached this task by thinking about two issues. The first concerns what might force an individual subject to use symbols as means of communication. He is interested in the possibility that symbols are developed as part of the means of managing the inevitable and unavoidable anxiety of change. Change-or its prospect-is itself equally unavoidable because we cannot know the future. The author then looks at the development of symbols as a means of communication through the use of the setting. This concerns thinking about experience that is initially unrepresentable and to observe how that experience becomes represented in the psychoanalytic setting. The particular experience he chose was a sense of nothingness because it is by definition both subjective and unrepresentable.
