A letter from Winnicott to Wilfred R. Bion describing Winnicott’s belief that Bion will have a great future. Winnicott goes on to discuss his feelings about the paper that Bion presented to the BPAS, adding that he regretted the lack of time for a group discussion of the paper’s important topics. He also comments on the overuse of projective identification and endorses Bion’s theories of the neurotic and psychotic parts of the personality.
