You are warmly invited to the book launch of Bion 365 Quotes
by Nicola Abel-Hirsch
Friday 22nd March 6.30-8.30pm
This is a book of 365 quotes from the work of the psychoanalyst Wilfred Bion. Something of an enigma, Bion often doesn’t write in the way one would expect of a psychoanalyst, but is being read ever-increasingly around the world, in and outside the psychoanalytic community. Certain of his comments are often quoted, whilst swathes of his work lie almost untouched. How to make some of the detail of this work available? What he writes is often dense in the way the structure of a poem can be, and the book has the format of a ‘poem a day’ collection – providing a way into his complete work one quote at a time. Alongside commentaries by Nicola Abel-Hirsch are thoughts on Bion’s work drawn from papers by other analysts from the UK, the Americas, and Europe.
