I want to clarify one brief but crucial point regarding my review of Marcia Cavell's The Psychoanalytic Mind: From Freud to Philosophy: The linguistic or intersubjective turn is undeniably the most significant event in the 20th Century philosophy and it has supplanted the paradigm which has been in place since the 16th Century. My main concern is, however, that it is being overextended in both philosophy and psychoanalysis. Cavell is entirely correct when she states that “the intersubjectivity of propositional thought is not a small thesis; it goes contrary to centuries of philosophical and non-philosophical thinking about the mind, and contrary also to many of Freud's ideas, including important ones, that share the traditional picture” (p. 1).
