Into and Out of the Spin
by Harry M. Anderson

The tall sculpture on the front cover of this book was created from an striking experience the author had in the late 1970s when looking at the news on the TV. In the course of approximately four seconds, a tall young German boy - absent of mind, aimless and sad - wandered across the screen and left the analyst artist in a powerful, shocked, puzzled state. He was in the midst of what became a failed ’69-‘79 training analysis, and during it, he developed an original, real-scientific method that, from ’80 to ’90: dismantled late-child symptoms in self; went to the causal roots of several art forms and ended them; re-stirred the memory of that boy; and led to the carving. He continued in that art form for some years until continued self-analytic studies went to absolute symptom roots and endings. And in September, 2018, the little fellow on the left opened his unconscious experiences to complete physical display in days. Then the analyst’s still-operative Self analytic research dismantled any further dangers that the Symptom Self had had to share (in disconnected, heavily secreted pieces), as it systematically moved to its real, and thoroughly-finished end on Nov. 4, 2019.

I am 89 years old, retired, and live in Toronto with my wife. I was trained in Medicine, learned the “Scientific Method”, was invited to join the U.S. AOA research group, trained in Psychiatry, went to train in Psychoanalysis, found it lacking real science, was prominent in the field (e.g. President of the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society) and developed a real scientific psychoanalytic science (The Metapsychological Formulation Method that has been captured in extensive detail in two books (2002 and 2011). I also developed 22 papers, several of which were presented in Canada, the U.S., England and Ireland. My 2011 published book (566-page) is one example of “hard science” research, and there has never been another real scientist in my field. I was the recipient of the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society Prados Prize in 1979. Based on the wide research I have conducted in the field of Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis, I also appear to be the only scientist who has been able to take a self-analysis to the absolute depths.
