The authors of this paper are all clinicians. We come from the background of general psychiatry and clinical psychology. All of us are psychoanalysts, and committed to treatment of suicidal patients. Suicidology, as reflected by what is published in the major journals, has changed over the years. While something has clearly been gained by an increasing emphasis on empirical research, something also has been lost. It is with this lens, and a wish   to correct this imbalance, that we have agreed to offer a comment on the state of our field.
