Click Here to Purchase: The Rapaport-Holt Correspondence from IPBooks.net
The correspondence between Robert Holt and David Rapaport is, indeed, a treasure trove. It reveals the thinking of two theoretical giants of psychoanalysis, each one providing intellectual stimulation to the other. This correspondence will be of great value to anyone interested in psychoanalytic history and theory. But further, it is not only a reminder of the halcyon days of psychoanalytic influence and theorizing, but can serve
as a model of clarity of thought and lucidity of writing—qualities that could contribute much to contemporary psychoanalysis.

of psychoanalysis, American Psychological Association
I am thrilled that the correspondence between David Rapaport and Robert Holt, two luminaries in psychoanalytic thought, is finally available! Arnold Richards and Arthur Lynch have provided a tremendous service to the field, as we are able to listen in as Rapaport and Holt work toward rigorously systematizing and empirically testing central psychoanalytic ideas. This will be an invaluable resource to both students and teachers of psychoanalysis.
