Book: Playing and Reality

Winnicott, D

1999 Routledge, London

Winnicott is concerned with the springs of imaginative living and of cultural experience in every sense, with whatever determines an individual’s capacity to live creatively and to find life worth living.

‘He was a man who could be ‘popular’ and completely accessible without ever ceasing to be profound, a man who ranged audaciously far and wide in the realms of thought but who always came back to home base, the psychology of the child.’
– Oliver Sacks, The New York Times Book Review
