THE WORKINGS OF MIND
presenter: Fred Pine, Ph.D.
Scanning the social sources of psychoanalytic theory building and his own personal evolution, the presenter will attempt to cut through the thicket of pluralism and locate psychoanalysis as a growing knowledge-based way of understanding psychic functioning along lines parallel to the growth of science or medicine. This view squares with what, increasingly, characterizes the working models of psychoanalytic clinicians. Conceptual and clinical integrative considerations will be offered.
