Psychoanalytic Process as a Field of Experience: Sensory Transformations in the Clinical Hour

Jack Foehl

Saturday Jan. 13, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In this presentation, Dr. Foehl will lay out the implications of a phenomenological perspective where mind/subject and world are “given at one stroke,” part of the same emergent field, where change takes place through transformations in experience. Trends in contemporary psychoanalytic theory lean toward this radical non- dualistic view, but never quite relinquish a perspective where subject and object, subject and subject are separate. Following a theoretical introduction, he will present a very short piece of clinical process that will demonstrate how this approach changes what we do. In discussion, he'll note similarities and differences between this approach and Post-Bionian thinking, some South American perspectives, and the French, notably Aulagnier, Miller and the Botellas.
