Description : Second Thoughts is a collection of papers on Schizophrenia, Linking and Thinking, and his commentary upon them in the light of later work. Originally composed between 1950 and 1962, it derives its title from the lengthy critical commentary which Bion attached to these case histories in the year of publication, 1967, and represents the evolutionary change of position marked in his three previous books and brought to further refinement in the present work.
Description : How does our perspective change after the first reading? What distortions emerge through repetition? How do we determine what's worth rereading, and what is the role of such repetition in our lives? What are the gains and losses? Second Thoughts answers these questions and investigates the phenomenon of rereading narrative texts from various genres. Contributors of this volume explore rereading children's literature, rereading Proust, how rereading functions in the oral tradition, and why so many people reread romances. Essays range from rereading Shakespeare and Spenser to rereading on a desert island and the rereading of hypertext.

Description : Second Thoughts: Selected Papers on Psycho-Analysis covers the developments in understanding the psycho-analytic theory. This book is composed of 10 chapters that review various case histories of psycho-analysis. After a brief explanation of the “imaginary twin concept, this book goes on examining six cases of schizophrenic patients and their development of schizophrenic thought. The next chapter focuses on the differentiation of the psychotic from the non-psychotic personalities, which depends on a minute splitting of all that part of the personality that is concerned with awareness of internal and external reality, and the expulsion of these fragments so that they enter into or engulf their objects. This topic is followed by presentations of psycho-analytical interpretation of hallucination and arrogance. The discussion then shifts to the significance of destructive attack in the production of some symptoms met within borderline psychosis. The concluding chapters emphasize the so-called theory of thinking. This book will prove useful to psycho-analysis and psychiatrists.
