New Theories: Their Influence and Effect on Psychoanalytic Technique

Slice ePub May 22, 2014

A.B. Bahia, Rio de Janeiro

Controversy is the growing-point from which development springs, but it must be a genuine confrontation and not an impotent beating of the air by opponents whose differences of view never meet (Bion, 1970, p. 55).


In his introductory note to Freud’s first six works on psychoanalytical technique, James Strachey (1958) points out the relative scarcity of texts on this theme by the creator of psychoanalysis. He goes on to remark that Freud never ceased to maintain that mastery of psychoanalytical technique could only be achieved through clinical experience, never from books. Strachey adds: “clinical experience with patients, no doubt, but, above all, clinical experience from the analyst’s own analysis.”

The cornerstone of technique is, thus, experience from the analyst’s own analysis which, according to Freud (1937a, p. 249), should be periodically resumed “at intervals of five years or so.” Based on his own experience of undergoing or re-undergoing analysis without idealization, the analyst realizes the problems of the development of psychoanalytical technique better than anyone. Such development has to be limited to “exercises with ideas,” following trends of thought which have stemmed from Freud’s first discoveries.

Hedonism – the kind only proper cities can provide. History – of the notable firsts kind. And music – think the Smiths, the Stone Roses and the Beatles. Just a taster of three good reasons to explore England’s once-mighty industrial heartland, the birthplace of the first modern city, the cradle of capitalism and the Age of Englightenment. The industry is, for the most part, gone but among the hulking relics are two of the country’s most exciting cities, as well as a Tudor postcard-town (Chester) and, in Blackpool, the sine qua non of traditional holidays-by-the-sea. And, if you fancy a bit of respite from the concrete paw-print of humankind, there’s some of the most beautiful countryside in England.

Not content with defining the progress of the last two centuries, northwest England is dead set on making an imprint on the 21st. It’s a tall order, but it’s going about it the right way.

4 Conceptualize Phase

Slice ePub May 14, 2014

CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT is a common starting point for theory building in applied disciplines. Thus, much more has been written about this phase compared to the others. The purpose of this chapter is to describe specific approaches to the Conceptualize phase of theory building in applied disciplines (Figure 4.1). Specifically, this chapter will

• define and describe the Conceptualize phase,

• describe the general inputs to the this phase,

• summarize the pros and cons of four approaches to the Conceptualize phase,

• describe the outputs of the Conceptualize phase, and

• propose a set of quality indicators for Conceptualize phase outcomes.

Conceptual development is the specification of the key elements of the theory, an initial explanation of their interdependence, and the general limitations and conditions under which the theoretical framework can be expected to operate. “The output of this phase is an explicit and thought-out conceptual framework that often includes a model or metaphor developed from the theorist’s knowledge of and experience with the realm, issue, or problem” (Lynham, 2002, pp. 231–232).

Hokusai Vieil Homme, fou de dessin

Source: Hokusai
Slice ePub February 10, 2015




Hokusai est né en 1760 à Edo, en octobre ou novembre, dans le quartier Honjo, proche de la rivière de la Sumida et de la campagne, un quartier affectionné par le peintre. Il signe même, pendant un temps, ses dessins : « le paysan de Katsushika », Katsushika étant le district de la province où se trouve le quartier Honjo. D’après le testament de sa petite fille, Shiraï Tati, il serait le troisième fils de Kawamura Itiroyemon – connu sous le nom de Bunsei – un artiste dont on ne connait pas la profession. Vers l’âge de quatre ans, Hokusai, dont le premier nom était Tokitarō, fut adopté par Nakajima Ise, fabricant de miroirs de la famille princière de Tokugawa.


Hokusai, encore enfant, entra comme commis chez un grand libraire d’Edo où, tout à la contemplation des livres illustrés, il remplit si paresseusement et si dédaigneusement son métier de commis, qu’il fut mis à la porte. Le feuilletage des livres illustrés du libraire et cette vie dans l’image, pendant de longs mois ont fait naître chez le jeune homme le goût et la passion du dessin.
