Bi-Ocularity, the Functioning Mind of the Psychoanalyst with Dr. Dana Birksted-Breen at IPTAR

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Bi-Ocularity, the Functioning Mind of the Psychoanalyst
Dr. Dana Birksted-Breen in the reading of her unpublished paper
January 15, 2015 – 8:30 p.m. – IPTAR West, 140 W 97th St, New York NY

Birksted-Breen discusses the mode of attentiveness that she calls bi-ocularity: one eye/I on the immediate and one eye/I on that which is not present, the” there” of the unconscious, the lost connection, the non represented. She distinguishes it from Bion’s notion of “binocular vision”. Bi-ocularity entails a necessary gap in the images, which also corresponds to the temporal gap of reverie. She considers the importance of bi-ocularity for the development of symbolic thinking and discusses this with clinical material. (more…)

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Dear Coleagues:

As Gilbert Kliman reminds us, Thanksgiving Day in the USA is also The Day of Mourning observed at Plymouth in Massachusetts. This typifies our collective ubiquitous unconscious ambivalence about life and society. It is amply reflected this week on the international psychoanalytic website. I have chosen some posts to illustrate this. Please read those of your choosing and leave your comments for all our colleagues world wide.

My choices this week are:

1) The stellar book review by Nathan Szajnberg of the remarkable book “The Rangell Reader” is a must for all!

2) I recommend the interviews with Wilfred Bion and Brent Potter, as well the the video “Sybil:A Brilliant Hysteric?”
