8 - The Conundrum of Time in Psychoanalysis

Slice ePub May 23, 2014


The conundrum of time in psychoanalysis

Elias Mallet da Rocha Barros & Elizabeth Lima da Rocha Barros

We would like to begin with quotes from the writings of two great historians of our time.

Edward Hallett Carr said:

Even Sir George Clark, critical as he was, contrasted the hard core of facts in history with the surrounding pulp of disputable interpretations—forgetting perhaps that the pulpy part of the fruit is more rewarding than the hard core. [Carr, 1961, pp. 9–10]

And Fernand Braudel wrote:

For me History (with capital H) is the sum of all possible histories. [Braudel, 1969, p. 55]

Both quotations illustrate how difficult it is to agree about a construction or re-construction of the past and about the function of isolated facts or groups of facts that might have taken place in the remote past of humankind. We will see, through a dream of a patient that we will bring to you, how he sees this issue from an unconsciously subjective point of view, with the eyes of his emotional mind.

We want to underscore some aspects of temporality and its relation with the way our present-day emotional experiences acquire meaning to highlight the importance of the work of Ruth Riesenberg-Malcolm, which is a successful attempt to deepen Freud's approach to constructions in analysis. We also try to complement her views with some personal reflections based on our clinical experience and studies of other authors. There are several points we wish to emphasize:

14. Troubleshooting TCP/IP

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Network administration tasks fall into two very different categories: configuration and troubleshooting . Configuration tasks prepare the system for the expected network environment; they require detailed knowledge of system configuration but are usually simple and predictable. Once a system is properly configured, there is rarely any reason to change it. The configuration process is repeated each time a new release of Windows is installed, but usually with very few changes.

In contrast, network troubleshooting deals with the unexpected. Troubleshooting frequently requires knowledge that is conceptual rather than detailed. Network problems are apt to be unique and sometimes difficult to resolve. Troubleshooting is an important part of maintaining a stable, reliable network service.

This chapter discusses the tools you can use to ensure that the network is in good running condition. However, good tools are not enough. No troubleshooting tool is effective if applied haphazardly. Effective troubleshooting requires a methodical approach to the problem and a basic understanding of how the network works. So well start our discussion by looking at ways to approach a network problem.

7. Complexity changes the game

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Everything that we are making, we are making more and more complex.

The complexity of the new networked, interdependent economy creates an ambiguous, uncertain, competitive landscape. Companies must be flexible enough to rapidly respond to changes in their environments, or risk extinction.

In The Power of Pull: How Small Moves, Smartly Made, Can Set Big Things in Motion (Basic Books), John Hagel and John Seely Brown observe that return on assetsthe measure of how efficiently a company can use its assets to generate profitshas steadily dwindled to almost a quarter of what it was in 1965.

The S&P 500 has fewer and fewer long-term survivors. New entrants arent faring much better. The average life expectancy of a company in the S&P 500 has dropped from 75 years (in 1937) to 15 years in a more recent study.

Turnover in the Fortune 1,000 is also increasing. If your company is in the Fortune 1,000, the chance that you will still be there in ten years is diminishing rapidly.
