Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jun 04, Paul Johnston rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a passionate book and I think it does a great job of conveying some of the spirit of Bion as an individual and as a thinker. The author does not just recount or explain Bion's views, he adds to them, modifies them and generally gives his personal take on them. Of course, his aim is to show the reader how Bion transformed psychoanalysis and he is an enthusiastic admirer, but one of the things he took from Bion was the importance of feeling free to be yourself.

A Beam of Intense Darkness: Wilfred Bion's Legacy to Psychoanalysis by James S. Grotstein
Freedom does have its risks and I think the book is a bit long. Also I was not always convinced by the author's additions and modifications. So in the end slightly mixed feelings. The author's passion did have a real impact on me and gave me an exhilarating sense of new perspectives, but also prompted me to re-read the Symington's book on Bion which I found most useful in terms of explaining specific content.
