The Enigma of Desire : Sex, Longing and Belonging in Psychoanalysis, introduces new perspectives on desire and longing, in and outside of the analytic relationship. This exciting volume explores the known and unknown, ghosts and demons, sexuality and lust. , This book will be of interest to anyone who is interested in the intricacies of sex and desire and of great appeal to psychoanalysts, therapists and mental health professionals. Atlas examines the ways in which different languages, translations and integrations focus on birth, death, sexuality, and human bonds. , The author focuses on the levels of communication that take place in the most intimate settings : between mothers and their babies between lovers in the unconscious bond of two people- in the consulting room, where two individuals sit alone in one room, looking and listening, breathing and dreaming.
