CIPS Book Series


The CIPS Book Series on The Boundaries of Psychoanalysis represents the rich intellectual life and scholarly discourse of the CIPS community. CIPS is a diverse and multidisciplinary psychoanalytic community, committed to the principle of academic freedom and determined to make our pluralism productive by promoting a vigorous dialogue and scholarly projects across all segments of our community. The CIPS Book Series, like our intimate clinical conferences and videoconference study groups, brings our community together in collective efforts to study, to learn, and communicate our work. The CIPS Book Series is published by Routledge in London.
