  • Reflections on Klein's radical notion of phantasy and its implications for analytic practice. [Journal Article]
    Int J Psychoanal 2017; 98(3):841-859Blass RB
  • Analysts may incorporate many of Melanie Klein's important contributions (e.g., on preoedipal dynamics, envy, and projective identification) without transforming their basic analytic approach. In this paper I argue that adopting the Kleinian notion of unconscious phantasy is transformative. While it is grounded in Freud's thinking and draws out something essential to his work, this notion of phan…
  • Unconscious phantasy: Some historical and conceptual dimensions. [Journal Article]
    Int J Psychoanal 2017; 98(3):785-798Bell D
  • This paper seeks firstly to grasp both conceptually and historically the different phenomenologies that are captured by the term 'Unconscious Phantasy'. The term is shown to refer to a number of distinct though overlapping conceptual domains. These include: phantasy as scene, phantasy as representation of drive, phantasy as representation of wish as its fulfilment, phantasy as split off activity …
  • [Magical and physical reality]. [Review]
    Psychiatr Hung 2016; 31(4):301-312Kállai J
  • In the postmodern countries the computer generated virtual reality provides new perceptual domains wherein the evaluation of real and unreal contents generates an essential challenge for both children and adults. The expectances to perceive unreal content which is contradictory with the common sense experiences become seductive for most of people. The time in front of the screen that emits the ma…
  • Further developments of the concept of fantasy. [Journal Article]
    Int J Psychoanal 2017; 98(3):831-839Giustino G
  • After the Isaacs' seminal work on the nature and function of unconscious phantasy (1948), several authors (mostly in the British Society) have reflected on the topic and tried to extend the concept of fantasy. In this paper I shall examine the contributions of Winnicott, Gaddini, Joseph and Anne Marie Sandler that aim at broadening this psychoanalytic concept. The authors that I have considered s…
  • Unconscious fantasy (or phantasy) as clinical concept. [Journal Article]
    Int J Psychoanal 2017; 98(3):595-610Pablo Jimenez J
  • A clinical phenomenology of the concept 'unconscious fantasy' attempts to describe it from a 'bottom-up' perspective, that is, from the immediate experience of the analyst working in session. Articles of psychoanalytic authors from different persuasions are reviewed, which taken as a whole would shed some light on how the concept of unconscious fantasy takes shape in the analyst's mind during the…
  • The Quest for Greatness in the Race to Not Be Forgotten. [Case Reports]
    Psychoanal Rev 2016; 103(1):17-40Waska R
  • Details from a brief psychoanalytic treatment with a disturbed and desperate patient in acute emotional crisis are used to consider the internal dread some patients have regarding separation from the object and their phantasy of eternal damnation as a result of self-differentiation. One patient's loyalty to her object as the only way to prevent abandonment is examined in depth, but also considere…
  • Beating phantasies: Mourned and unmourned. [Case Reports]
    Int J Psychoanal 2016; 97(3):615-39Antinucci G
  • This paper intends to explore the organizing function and fate of sado-masochistic phantasies in their fixed form, in the psychic life of patients who have suffered early traumas, due to environmental vicissitudes and maternal psychopathology. The theoretical starting point is provided by the Novicks' research into transitory and permanent beating phantasies in adult and child patients, their ons…
