White Institute Calendar
Beyond Intersubjectivity - Mary Tennes
All the material presented in this year’s colloquia similarly foreshadows a potential paradigm shift in psychoanalytic theorizing about the nature of consciousness itself.
This evening runs from 8:00-9:30PM/Eastern Standard Time.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Throughout the history of psychoanalysis, beginning with Freud, the exploration of uncanny, telepathic, and mystical experiences has evoked both fascination and fear, and for good reason: these occurrences challenge our ordinary conceptualization not only of the psyche but of reality itself. How do we approach this territory, both within ourselves and with our patients, in a way that allows us to open to its radical nature? Using case material, Dr. Tennes will explore how psychoanalysis offers us a particularly nuanced and fertile arena for this project.
MARY TENNES, PhD, is a training analyst and supervisor as well as faculty at the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California and in private practice in Oakland, CA. She has a long-standing interest in psychoanalysis and the uncanny, which has been a central focus in her teaching and writing for over 30 years. She sees psychoanalysis at its heart, as a radical project which continues to open to that which is beyond the limits of the known.
