CHAPTER TWELVE: Elements for a metapsychology about midlife

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>Guillermo Julio Montero</i></p><p> <i>Death and “the trauma about one’s own future death”</i></p><p>Psychically speaking, our own death’s experience, as our life’s final ending, works as a constant presence and a chronic threat. I would like to call it “the trauma about one’s own future death<i>”</i>, the ongoing and never-ending personal relationship with that final and definitive ending, our own future death (Montero, 2005). However, rather than arguing about expressions, I would like to explain the metapsychological work that results from the conflict originated by “the most touchy point in the narcissistic system, the immortality of the ego, which is so hard pressed by reality” (Freud 1914<i>c</i>).</p><p>If we consider trauma as those events that overwhelm our psychic apparatus’ representational capacity, it could be argued that trauma is not the most accurate term to name an experience which has not happened yet. The answer is in the word “yet”, which is referring to something that will happen in the future. Something that has not happened “yet” has a psychic presence with a sort of premonitory reality value, generally a threatening one. Therefore, the trauma about one’s own future death comprises a (possible?) psychic attempt to acknowledge that our own death is going to occur at some point in the future (Montero, 2000).</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/404155-updating-midlife-psychoanalytic-perspectives">See more</a>

<p><em>T<small>HE FUTURE HAS AN ANCIENT HEART</small></em>.<br><em>– Carlo Levi</em></p><p>My dialogues with Kaz began in the summer of 2009 in my home in Stowe, Vermont, while Susan Taylor, Kaz, and I were forming plans for the continuation of a partnership he and I had begun fourteen years earlier. These dialogues drew deeply from Kaz’s years of training as a transpersonal psychologist and from his years working with Scott Peck, who had written that Kaz demonstrated “extraordinary creative genius” in forming a state of community while working with businesses in large-group settings. In this work, Kaz was able to promote unitive states of consciousness – the collapse of boundaries Bohm spoke to me about in London and that occur “at the bottom of the U,” leading to profound individual and collective insights and breakthrough solutions.</p><p>Kaz and I had coauthored a paper in 1998 with Peter Senge called “Setting the Field: Creating Conditions for Profound Institutional Change” – later known at SoL as “The Field Paper.” The Field Paper, based on all we’d learned about the subject over the past twenty years, was deeply informed by Bohm’s understanding of the way the world works. We had concluded the paper by saying, “We believe this process could represent the beginnings of a major breakthrough for large-scale transformative change, and we sincerely hope that this paper will challenge others to think and explore along similar lines.”</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/277318-source-the-inner-path-of-knowledge-creation">See more</a>

2. Getting Started with AspectJ

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>This chapter contains recipes for getting started in developing your own aspect-oriented code using AspectJ. Beginning with the task of getting a build environment set up and moving through the different types of builds and targets, this chapter provides a tutorial in the basics of AspectJ development.</p><p>With an understanding of the fundamental concepts in aspect orientation, this chapter first covers getting your fingers dirty using AspectJs development environment. At the core of AspectJ is its build support for weaving aspects into your Java code. This is currently done using a compiler, <code>ajc</code>, that interacts with the existing Java compiler, <code>javac</code>. Working within the constraints of the Java compilation process ensures that your aspect-oriented programs produce standard Java classes that can be run by any Java Virtual Machine (JVM). <code>ajc</code> simply automates the mapping of your aspects onto your Java classes.</p><p>The <code>ajc</code> tool is used for compile-time weaving of aspects either from the command line or within an IDE or other build tool, but there is also an alternative weaving method supported in AspectJ, load-time weaving. As its title suggests, load-time weaving supports the weaving of aspects into your application at the time when the Java class loader is loading the application into the JVM. This is a fairly new feature of AspectJ and is briefly described in this chapter with the caveat that the current methods by which load-time weaving is achieved using AspectJ may change in the future as this facility matures.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362591-aspectj-cookbook">See more</a>
