"This volume brings together Dr. Winnicott's published and unpublished papers on psycho-analysis and child development during the period 1957-1963. The basic concepts of Freud are indexed in relation to Dr. Winnicott's discussions or elaborations of them. Quite often Dr. Winnicott's has taken a Freudian concept as his given frame of reference but has not discussed it as such, and it is intended that the index should in part remedy this by pointing out the links between Dr. Winnicott's ideas and those of Freud." M. Masud Khan from Editorial Note.

One of Winnicott's best works. Very interesting and relevant essays on the ability to be alone, ability to be with other people, the ability to be quiet and others.
