Florian Houssier, Xanthie Vlachopoulou: Winnicott between inside and outside. Excerpts from his correspondence

Using two unpublished letters from D. W. Winnicott to A. Freud in February 1957, we will call into question the claim that, despite their theoretical disagreements, D. W. Winnicott was closer to the ideas of M. Klein and more removed from those of A. Freud. We will show that D. W. Winnicott’s interest in adolescence, far from being secondary for him, is present at different periods in his career and is something he shared more with A. Freud.
