Vortrag auf Deutsch von Donna Orange und Diskussion auf Englisch

Eintritt frei, um Anmeldung wird untenstehend gebeten

“This piece reconsiders the basic theoretical and practical thinking behind intersubjective systems theory as developed by Robert Stolorow, George Atwood, and Bernard Brandcraft, and my own reasons for preferring it. It then moves on to consider this theory’s continuity with what is being described as an 'ethical turn' in contemporary psychoanalysis, calling us out to respond inclusively to the sufferings of our patients within the larger worlds we and they share. It points toward ethical subjectivity as a radical turn away from the modern ego based on material possessiveness and competition.” (Donna Orange, 2018)
