"Two Butterflies on my Head.." is a metaphor (U. Moser) to characterize art and science, the clinical and scientific aspects of psychoanalytic work, themain subject of this book. International authors (from Switzerland, FRG, USAand Sweden) have tried to open new perspectives to overcome the "theory-crisis in psychoanalysis." They particularly focus on the interdisciplinary dialogue between psychoanalysts and social scientists, infant researchers, empirical psychologists, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists and psychotherapy researchers and illustrate some of the theoretical, clinical and scientific results of such an approach.
