Commentary by Luba Kessler

The concept of the “self” is proposed as a potential mediator in the questions raised by Mark Solms regarding bodily representations in the brain/mind and their relationship to consciousness.

Their addition may shift the enduring Freudian metapsychology into a more workable relationship to the neurosciences, and vice versa.
