BION WORLDWIDE ONLINE SEMINARS

2024 – 2025

 

Bion’s work has changed the landscape of contemporary psychoanalysis. At the age of seventy, Bion emigrated to California, beginning his international travels; he traveled to destinations in Latin America, North America, and Europe to give Lectures, Seminars, and Supervisions. The various events were recorded and later transcribed. He also wrote two volumes of autobiography and a biographical novel, A Memoir of the Future.

Following Bion’s evolving thinking, these Online Seminars offer an integrated view of the dialectic interplay between Bion’s earlier writings and his later ones, reflecting the perpetual movement that Bion tries to depict between different modes of apprehending reality. The Seminars are structured in a way that will inform and interest the participants. For readers who know Bion’s work well, we invite you to revisit his work accompanied by outstanding speakers from different geographical regions.

Author´s Note- I thank all who participated in these discussions with their objections and agreements. Many who read this book will feel that my replies are inadequate and incomplete. That they are inadequate I must admit; that they are incomplete I regard as a virtue especially if it stimulates the reader to complete the anserws. I wish the reader as much enjoyment as I had in speaking; if it sends him to sleep may I wish him “Sweet Dreams and a profitable awakening”.
