Book Description

With a unique blend of clinical compassion and philosophical reflection, Dr. Orange illuminates the nature and process of psychoanalytic understanding. The book argues that psychoanalytic understanding emerges from mutual emotional participation in the intersubjective field formed by the patient and therapist, and explores the process through which patient and therapist can attain "good?enough" understanding to heal emotional wounds. Reflecting many of the most recent developments in psychoanalytic thinking, the book demonstrates a shift from drive to the organization of experience as a primary motivator; from scientific objectivism to hermeneutic perspectivism, and above all, from the values of independence and isolation to those of interdependence and community. This book will be of interest to psychoanalytically?oriented therapists, as well as other readers interested in the psychoanalytic healing process and philosophical issues within psychoanalysis. It serves as an important text for advanced courses on conceptual issues in psychoanalysis.
