During this richly nuanced evaluation of many of the dimensions of mutuality in psychoanalysis, Aron indicates that the relational method of psychoanalysis is a strong advisor to problems with procedure and healing procedure. From his reappraisal of the strategies of interplay and enactment, to his exam of the difficulty of analyst self-disclosure, to his concluding feedback at the relational import of the analyst's ethics and values, Aron squarely accepts the scientific obligations attendant to a postmodern critique of psychoanalytic foundations.
