The Intimate Room provides an original exploration of psychoanalytic thought, showing how contemporary psychoanalysis seeks to answer the challenges raised by today's post-modern culture.
Offering a deeply personal and insightful reading of Bion, this book acts as a stimulating guide to the development of the theory of the analytic field and both its technical and clinical implications. As such topics of discussion include:the concept of the internal settingthe rhetoric of interpretation the 'subversive' notion of Nachtraglichkeitthe role played by characters in analytic discoursethe bi-personal field as virtual realitynew concepts of transference.
Allowing the reader to engage with the inner space of analysis, The Intimate Room will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and all those with an interest in the field of psychoanalysis. It will also be a useful tool in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic work on a day-to-day basis.

"Not many authors would be able to negotiate a path through this complex, progressively expanding universe while at the same time maintaining a holographic and multidimensional vision of psychoanalysis. Giuseppe Civitarese is surely one of the few - the very few - who have this capability." - Antonino Ferro, From the Foreword
