Summary Annotation Perversion is a challenge for both theory and psychoanalytic practice. Juan Pablo Jimenez and Rodolfo Moguillansky, American psychoanalysts known for the originality of their contributions, offer us vivid and detailed clinical material of patients of analysis who presented various kinds of perversions, which they accompany by a comprehensive and accurate review of major psychoanalytic contributions on the subject, and their own contributions to it. The reader will find not only scholarship, but he will also find himself trapped in a thriller where the analyst is continually asked to leave his role as analyst to enter a game that fascinates and rejects. In a masterful way the authors describe their own internal vicissitudes in the treatment of these patients, the counter-transferential difficulties and how perversion becomes a source of inevitable collusions in the mind of the analyst. They take us to face, from an intersubjective perspective, to become aware of how the situations in which the classic transferential interpretation--when it is not attuned to the psychic reality of the patient--can retraumatize him and generate adverse events. We also count, as in thrillers, on researchers who help us review the facts and the storyline. The chapters of the book are accompanied by discussions with relevant well-known figures of psychoanalysis such as P. Fonagy, C. Featherson, and R. Krause. The end result enriches the reader with an exchange of opinions that is in agreement with the poliphonic character of current pluralistic psychoanalysis.
