Mary Caruthers, author of The Book of Memory (1994),1 pointed out that while in today's world we think of our highest creative power as that of the imagination, in antiquity geniuses were thought of as those who had superior memory. It is only recently that psychological interest in memory has been fully rekindled, in large part through the work of a number of neuroscientists, among them Kandel, Schacter, and Damasio. Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience, edited by Mauro Mancia, aims to demonstrate what the contribution of the neurosciences to psychoanalysis promises and effects. Among clinicians, it is relevant for psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, and neurologists.
