We’ve had a love affair with Winnicott because he instilled a sense of freedom in us – a freedom to think openly and imaginatively – in mind and body – in our work as psychoanalysts. His core involvement with creativity in theory and practice remains a timeless influence on all of us who strive to capture a bit of the magic—the aliveness and spontaneous movements of true self realizations. Playing and Reality was Winnicott’s final book and to Adam Phillips it represented a radical revision– a wild and extraordinary leap beyond the boundaries of Kleinian and Freudian theory. Phillips takes us further and inspires us to tap into his kind of freedom. He asks us how can we maintain a sense of pleasure in our work and perhaps in his writing and thinking – and as the author of Unforbidden Pleasures – he shows us how he does it.
