“Our Multiplicity of Lives, Theories and Attitudes:
Commensurability and Incommensurability In Psychoanalysis”
Saturday, February 25, 2017
1:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Registration & light lunch at 12:30 PM
3 CE/CME hours available
Can the multiplicity of theoretical and personal “scientific paradigms” within contemporary psychoanalysis, as well as the attitudes they foster —on the level of theory as well as clinical practice— be one of fruitful coexistence, interpenetration, and communication, despite apparent incommensurability between and among certain of such paradigms? Or are we doomed in such multiplicity to be forever segregated and compartmentalized by our convictions, what they hold to be real, true and important, and the languages used to covey them? This conference explores these questions, expanding upon ways of inquiring into, and conceptualizing, the nature of any psychotherapist’s scientific paradigm—his/her organizing convictions, values, and language. Coburn and Maduro argue that highlighting and working within a sense of respect for the personal, historical nature of our paradigms, and the discrepancies between them, is a substantial source of increasing vitality and aliveness within the analytic dyad and our field at large.

Presentation will be at ICP:

Goals and Objectives:
- Formulate and summarize what commensurable and incommensurable ideas in psychoanalysis mean and how these ideas, clinical and theoretical, enter into the transference-countertransference system in clinical work.
- Observe, describe, and discuss the manifestations of a theorist’s personal history as it emerges in his/her own psychoanalytic theory.
- Design a method of critical self-reflection in order to discern the personal, historical influences that shape one’s own theories and interdisciplinary convictions, and extend it to understand the commensurability or incommensurability (their relative compatibility) of them with other theories (within or outside psychoanalysis).
