Example text

The present work does not intend to be a primer to the Trilogy— a work that hardly demands it. Nevertheless, the establishment’s reaction to the Trilogy seems to demand introductory works which could function as an invitation to read it. To paraphrase one of the many contemporaries dear to Bion, Luigi Pirandello, in his play Six Characters in Search of an Author: the three books look for the achieving reader. “Achieving reader” may be seen by some readers as embodying an authoritarian pretence to patronising elitism.

If one leaves aside the excessively concretised eulogies of war such as those included in the sociological thoughts of Count Helmuth von Moltke, a piece of truth may emerge from the following quotation: Eternal peace is a dream—and not even a beautiful one. War is part of God’s world-order. Within it unfold the noblest virtues of man, courage and renunciation, loyalty to duty and readiness for sacrifice—at the hazard of one’s life. Without war the world would sink into a swamp of materialism. Further … the gradual progress in morality must also be reflected in the waging of war.

Some do, luckily; I am not unappreciative of the fact, but it tells me more of the generosity and affection of my colleagues than of my merits. [III: 540–1] The present book, in the wake of The Language of Bion, avoids at all costs “explaining Bion” and a fortiori, expressing “what Bion wanted to say”. What he wanted to say only he could know—and he left a clear message about this in his introduction to Seven Servants (1977d). ”, or “by transformations”, or “by alpha-function”, etc. (Sandler, 1969, 1973).
