This volume is characterized by a remarkable variety of topics, unified by the dialectical, often polemical quality with which the various issues are treated, and by the courageous extension of new research into increasingly primitive areas of the mind: ‘my latest brain-child’, that is, his latest discoveries. In the introduction to Volume 7, the author comments on three main areas: his writings on theory (disintegration and dissociation), those that deal with technical issues (consultation: the ‘patient’s picnic’), and those in which Winnicott’s character and personality emerge (Winnicott as a person), finding that Winnicott’s complex way of thinking shifts from the individual to the general, from the normal to the pathological, and from the integration of fragmentary elements towards new creative constructions.
