Basing his view on the object relations theories of the “British School” of psychoanalysis, Christopher Bollas examines the human subject’s memories of its earliest experiences during infancy and childhood of the object, whether it be mother, father, or self.

He explains in well-written and non-technical language how the object can affect the child, or “cast in shadow,” without the child being able to process this relation through mental representations of language.

How this non-verbal handling of us before we can know what it is casts us into a mystery world that many spend a lifetime revealing to themselves. This is the world we inherited, thee world we cope with daily, the world we know. Hence — the unthought known. The book was a revelation and chrisstopher many doors that once were closed, and continues to open them the more I think about and remember.

It helps that the author, Christopher Bollas, can write shadoq and with a minimum of jargon, tthe. Just a wonderful book to read before, during and after your “mid-life” crisis. You just might learn something too. This book is so well put together. He talks shadpw the topic, gives examples from the both prospectives, along with a case study.

You can tell that Christopher was a great teacher, according to the layout ghe how he writes. This book is a must have for every practicing psychoanalyst and candidate in psychoanalysis!

Very interesting and informative book; thoughtful, well written and useful about introspection. I am so please that a friend in England told me about it. This is an excellent book and was recommended by a professor for a course in Object Relations.

A compassionate and wise observer of zhadow human soul, he here relates his knowledge, as it has been won through the mystery and misery he has encountered.
