Analyst of the Imagination : The Life and Work of Charles Rycroft, Paperback / softback Book

Analyst of the Imagination : The Life and Work of Charles Rycroft Paperback / softback


Charles Rycroft's lucid jargon-free approach to psychoanalysis inspired a whole generation.

Taking inspiration from many fields outside psychoanalysis, including history, literature, linguistics and ethology, he established the important link between mental health and the imagination, creating a broader perspective and encouraging free thinking.

This solitary and creative "rebel" rarely received the recognition he deserved, but this collection of articles and papers by people who felt the benefit of his ever-curious, expanding wealth of knowledge, goes some way to acknowledging the debt owed to him, and introducing a new generation to this innovative analyst.
