Sándor Ferenczi was considered to be Freud’s most gifted patient and protégé. Irreconcilable differences between Freud, his followers and Ferenczi lead to professional exile; many of his writings were withheld from translation or otherwise stifled.

In this book,  The Legacy of Sandor Ferenczi: From Ghost to Ancestor,Harris and Kuchuck bring together a hugely distinguished range of international contributors to explore how newly obtained historical documents and theoretical advances have returned Ferenczi to a place of legitimacy and prominence. Addressing or predicting major contemporary psychoanalytic topics and schools of thought, his work continues to influence both theory and practice, making this a perfect time to discover or revisit his legacy.

Discussants: Lew Aron, Adrienne Harris,  Steven Kuchuck, Annelisa Pederson, Sharyn Leff & Giselle Galdi
