Shared Traumas, Silent Loss, Public and Private Mourning
This book aims to question the junctions of the private and the public when it comes to trauma, loss, and the work of mourning – notions which, it is argued, challenge our very ideas of the individual and the shared. It asks, to paraphrase Adorno, ‘What do we mean by “working through the past”?, ‘How is a shared work of mourning to be understood?’, and ‘With what legitimacy do we consider a particular social or cultural practice to be “mourning”?’ Rather than aiming to present a diagnosis of the political present, this volume instead takes one step back to pose the question of what mourning might mean and what its social dimension consists in. Contributors reflect on the trauma of the Holocaust, the after-effects of the Vietnam War in the US, the Lebanese war-torn experience, victims of the Pacific War in Taiwan, and the Chilean dictatorship.

Thomas Ogden : Reclaiming Unlived Life
In Reclaiming Unlived Life, influential psychoanalyst Thomas Ogden uses rich clinical examples to illustrate how different types of thinking may promote or impede analytic work. With a unique style of “creative reading,” the book builds upon the work of Winnicott and Bion, discussing the universality of unlived life and the ways unlived life may be reclaimed in the analytic experience. The book examines the role of intuition in analytic practice and the process of developing an analytic style that is uniquely one’s own.
