“Truth shall spring out of the earth”: The Analyst as Gatherer of Sense Impressions (Online Presentation)

December 11 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

In this presentation, Avner Bergstein will reflect on our attempt to approach the unknowable, ultimate reality of the psychoanalytic experience and the unrepressed unconscious.  He will trace Bion’s evolving thinking about the analyst’s intuition as a primary tool in this endeavor.  In exploring the clinical implications of psychoanalytic intuition, he will highlight the perpetual to-and-fro between cohesion and dispersion, conception and intuition, and the finite and the infinite in pursuit of the ineffable, suggesting that intuition entails the capacity to apprehend reality in transience.
