The Infinite Question by Christopher Bollas (New York, NY, Hove: Routledge, 2009; xvi and 192 pp; £16.99); reviewed by Margaret Whitford The Evocative Object World by Christopher Bollas (New York, NY, Hove: Routledge, 2009; vi and 126 pp; $23.95); reviewed by Margaret Whitford It has been said that the history of Western philosophy is a series of footnotes to Plato. Perhaps the history of psychoanalysis will come to be seen as a series of footnotes to Freud. Certainly Bollas suggests as much when he writes that: ‘Each generation of psychoanalysts returns to Freud, not simply to study the origins of psychoanalysis, but because his writings are so profound that one discovers a paragraph here or a sentence there that will provoke a rethinking of contemporary assumptions’ (The Evocative Object World, pp. 19–20). Bollas’s work can be seen as an ongoing engagement with Freud, a dialogue in which he feels free to criticize, disagree, revise, expand, modify, or make links with other psychoanalytic theories, while always considering Freud to be the one who made the crucial discovery – not the discovery of the unconscious per se, but the discovery of a way to access unconscious thoughts via the invention http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychoanalysis and History Edinburgh University Press
