Embedded Individuality

My essential thesis today is that an existentially informed, rigorously relational, affect-focused psychoanalytic attitude towards the patient’s subjective experience facilitates development of an important aspect of his/her sense of individuality. This aspect consists in a sense of personal distinctiveness that reflects the patient’s unique embeddedness in --versus independence from-- relationships with others. I call this a sense of relationally embedded individuality. Specifically, I consider how Intersubjective-systems theory --an existential, relational, affect theory-- cultivates in the analyst a clinical attitude of affect-respect (Maduro, 2013) that, in turn, facilitates the patient’s development of a sense of this relationally contextualized individuality.

Owning My Throwness

In this presentation, I extend psychoanalyst and philosopher Robert Stolorow’s work in which he uses Heidegger to contend that a person’s emotional ownership of his existential anxiety and grief --feelings that disclose the person’s own temporal finitude, and that of his connections to loved ones-- enriches his sense of individuality...
