Darian Leader is a Lacanian psychoanalyst and founding member of the Center for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR)  in London.  He is a thinker, speaker, and writer whose intelligence and clarity reach a wide international audience — Lacanian and beyond.  Among his prolific publications are titles such as:  Jouissance:  Sexuality, Suffering, and Satisfaction (2021);  “Rereading Little Hans” (2021); Why Can’t We Sleep? (2019); Strictly Bipolar (2013); and What Is Madness? (2011); Why Do People Get Ill?. Most recently, in 2023 he published his latest book,  Is It Ever Just Sex?  He also features in several YouTube lectures, including:  “Interpretation” (2022); “On Jouissance” (2022); and “What Is Sex?” (2022). In all of his writings and talks, Leader illustrates his belief that psychoanalysis thrives on real questions — on exploring what we don’t know —  and inspires his readers to question even further.

Jeanne Wolff-Bernstein is a psychoanalyst in Vienna. She is a member and training analyst at the Wiener Arbietskreis für Psychoanalyse (WAP), and head of the Scientific Advisory Council, Vienna Sigmund Freud Museum. Before moving to Vienna, Wolff-Bernstein was past-President, supervising and personal analyst. and one of the cherished mainstays at PINC (Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California).  Currently she teaches at PINC, the NYU Postdoctoral Program, and WAP.  Wolff-Bernstein “speaks” many psychoanalytic languages:  she is conversant in Freud, his British Object Relations offshoots, the Relational school, and Lacan.  Publications include: “The Space of Transition between Winnicott and Lacan” in Between Winnicott and Lacan (2011); section on Lacan in The Textbook of Psychoanalysis (2012); Living Between Two Languagesin Immigration in Psychoanalysis (2016); “Active witnessing in the analytic practice” (Psyche, 2023); and Eros and Thanatos, in catalog to “The Uncanny, Sigmund Freud and Art” (2023).  Coming soon is Edouard Manet: A Psychoanalytic Exploration, The Lure of the Gaze and the Past.
