In the last years of his life Bion gathered unusual manuscripts
handwritten in his tidy lettering that assumed the form of a
trilogy. Finely typed and edited by his dedicated wife, they were
named A Memoir of the Future. Many of the themes of this book were
already evident in Transformations and Attention and
Interpretation. These earlier books provide many of the theories
whose practical counterpart finally found a form in the trilogy: as
Bion himself noted, "the criteria for a psychoanalytic paper are
that it should stimulate in the reader the emotional experience
that the writer intends, that its power to stimulate should be
durable, and that the emotional experience thus stimulated should
be an accurate representation of the psychoanalytic experience that
stimulated the writer in first place." Was Bion true to his word?
It is perhaps left to the reader to answer this question. The
present book is an attempt to indicate the view that Bion's attempt
was to present the burning flame itself - rather than presenting
static photographs of the fire.
