The Introduction to Volume 4 proposes a different way of reading Winnicott, not only to appreciate his various key concepts, but also to capture the mode, logic and movement of his thinking, by reading him slowly. Reference is made to Winnicott’s idiom - his own use of psychoanalytic language - which keeps the language personal and alive, and which follows the spirit of Freud. The author brings this approach to Winnicott’s work on psychosis, regression and depression, focusing on relating and relationships, and finally quoting from ‘Holding and Interpretation’ as evidence of Winnicott at work in such a way.
