This book is concerned with whether we can develop our understanding of the mind through the application of new approaches to the study of complex systems. It is divided into two sections. The first is concerned with the application of non-linear systems theory to the psychoanalytic study of the mind. The second is concerned with the technical application of the ideas of chaos theory to the understanding of therapeutic action and psychic change. It concludes with a consideration of the research and clinical implications of considering the mind as a non-linear system.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a challenging and important book, offering new clinical and theoretical insights into the relationship between psychoanalysis and the natural sciences, but moving us far beyond the sometimes reductionist tendencies of neuroscientific models. Most clinicians have an intuitive grasp of complexity and chaos theory, but this book provides us with the resources to ground our experience in detailed conceptual models. Lucid and accessible, the work of these clinically sophisticated authors promises to open new pathways for research and practice.'- Andrew Cooper, Professor of Social Work, the Tavistock Centre and University of East London
