There are not many books on the relationship between psychoanalysis and the online world. After a brief review of some significant literature titles, the author de-scribes the content of the first two volumes of a complex ouvre, Psychoanalysis Online. The author selects some of the articles, which he describes in detail and analyses with the intent of outlining their problematic nuclei and innovative pro-posals: telephone or videoconference psychotherapy and their relationship to in-person psychotherapy, distance education, some themes closely related to pa-tients’ online content fruition and interaction, ethical and legal issues, metapsycho-logical foundation of the online dimension; relationship between these themes and institutional power dynamics. In his final considerations , the author wishes to of-fer a critical in-depth analysis no the role of the online dimension in contemporary psychotherapeutic experience and its relationship with psychoanalysis: caution and assimilation difficulties towards new psychotherapy experiences, risks of ide-alization but also an expansion of the understanding of tout court unconscious phenomena. The author then proposes that experts on groups, who are as today unrepresented in this part of literature, could provide the scientific community with their original insight on these topics, especially from the point of view of psychoa-nalysis as a discipline interested in the manifestations of the unconscious in its ex-tended meaning (that of Kaës) and that of the analysis of the institutional dynam-ics linked to the illustrated changes.
