One Comment on “Connecting Empirical Science and Qualitative Psychoanalytic Data with Howard Shevrin”

  1. Charles Fisher Says:

    The series of experiments reported by Howard Shevrin meet the challenge posed by Professor Adolf Grunbaum to demonstrate a causal relationship between unconscious psychological conflict and psychopathology, based on the function of repression, using methods from outside clinical psychoanalysis, thus avoiding the “circularity of many psychoanalytic explanations.” These findings also extend the reach of neuroscience “into the realm of personal, psychological meaning,” and support the utility of combining psychoanalytic and neuroscience methods.

    Shevrin’s most recent paper makes use of methods in psychoanalytic theory, cognitive science, and neuroscience. It makes significant contributions in each of these domains, while simultaneously situating psychoanalysis within the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind. In sum, the research reported here is a tour de force that alters our ability to experience and study a very important conceptual terrain.
