In this book, Grassi explores the importance of music in psychoanalysis and the place of listening for rhythm within it, arguing that music is a basic working tool for psyche, as words are composed of sound, rhythm and intonation more than lexical meaning.

Illuminating the link between music and analysis in new and contemporary ways, The Sound of the Unconscious explores the resulting advances in theory and clinical practice and will be of great interest to practicing and training psychoanalysts and psychotherapists.

In questo libro Ludovica Grassi esplora l’importanza della musica per la psicoanalisi, sostenendo che la musica sia un fondamentale strumento di lavoro per la psiche, essendo le parole composte di suoni, ritmo e intonazione più ancora che di significato lessicale.

Illuminando il legame fra musica e psicoanalisi in modi nuovi e contemporanei, The Sound of Unconscious  esplora i progressi che ne conseguono nella teoria e nella pratica clinica e sarà di grande interesse per gli psicoanalisti psicoterapeuti clinici e con funzioni di training.
