Dr Louis Zinkin was well-known in British psychoanalytic circles for his original and provocative ideas. Dialogue in the Analytic Setting is a representative selection of his published and unpublished work, complemented by correspondence, previously unpublished, between Zinkin and the late Dr Michael Fordham. The book focuses on the theory and practice of Jungian analysis, the theory and practice of group analysis, and the relevance of these two schools of psychotherapy to one another. Zinkin makes connections between concepts in the Jungian analysis and the psychoanalytic repertoire, using insights from his knowledge of other disciplines, including anthropology, social psychology, literary philosophy and physics. These papers demonstrate the pre-eminence of dialogue in his approach with particular reference to the work of Buber and Bakhtim.
