Stockholm (The Psychoanalysis/Neuroscience Study Groups of the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society)

Iréne Matthis and Magnus Kihlbom

As earlier reported, we now have four groups working with different aspects of the broad field of psychoanalysis—neuroscience studies. The first two groups are chaired by Irene Matthis, the third by Magnus Kihlbom, and the fourth by the philosopher Lars-Goran Johansson.

1.   During the Fall term of 2000, the Body—Mind Study Group, now entering its fourth year, continued its close reading of the evolution of language and brain as presented by Terrence Deacon in Symbolic Species. Thereafter we plan to study the new book by Karen Kaplan-Solms and Mark Solms, Clinical Studies in Neuro-Psychoanalysis.

2.   The Chiozza Group is continuing their studies of the work of Luis Chiozza and his team in Buenos Aires, trying to formulate a psychoanalytic approach to bodily illness. If the first term was devoted to getting a preliminary overview of the theories and practices involved in work with (psycho)somatic disorders, the second term approaches the subject on a more fundamental level, doing a comparative reading of Freud's metapsychological work alongside Chiozza's theoretical propositions; for example, relating to “Organsprache”—the vicissitudes of expression of body and mind. In order to relate the abstract theories to our clinical practice, and trying to avoid the seduction inherent in believing that by knowing the theories we also know what we are doing, we intend to do a parallel study of some pathobiographical case material from the Chiozza group as well as some of our own psychoanalytic cases.
